Pretty Good

Ok, the wife had the 1/2 fried Crawfish and 1/2 etouffee, I had 5 pounds of boiled Crawfish. We sat at the bar ( it's fun at times) the place was packed! Obviously the locals like it. The service was very quick, beer was ice cold (which is important when one eats crawfish) the boiled I had was... read more

First time ever to Crawdaddy's. My only disappointment was the crawfish were really small. They were cooked perfectly and tasted great. There is not a whole lot the restaurant can do to control the size of the crawfish. We would make another stop on our next trip through Shreveport.

Sorry the crawdads were on the smaller side, Paul. They should get bigger and bigger throughout the season, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoyed. Come back and see us next time you're in town! Best, Louis and Ollie, Owners More

We visited this place on our way through Louisiana tonight. I'm from the New Orleans area, but I live in Dallas now; can't get crawfish like this in Dallas! We had boiled crawfish, raw oysters and the fried shrimp, and everything was great. Would definitely visit again! Michelle was our server, and she was friendly and excellent. Great find!

Glad we could give you a taste of home, Alex! Thanks for the stellar review, and for singing Michelle's praises -- we'll make sure she sees this. Can't wait to have you back for more! Best, Louis and Ollie, Owners More

The crawfish was excellent. However, we went there to get the smothered fish and they were out. Those who ordered the crawfish were served early, but the others waited nearly an hour to be served. The first where through eating. One ordered grilled shrimp. It was very tough and over cooked. Very disappointed in the service.

We got raw oysters, alligator, crawfish and red beans and rice. All of the food was great. Portions were large we could've easily shared a plate. 3 kids and 2 adults total was $97. Would recommend if at Shreveport. But would recommend sharing a plate.

First of all Pamela was our server. She was efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. We had fried oyster plate and the Crawfish tray. Oh my gosh! So good! We would definitely come back and eat here over and over and over again!

We had some friends invite us to Crawdaddy's this past weekend to eat some crawfish. Since reading all the reviews of great crawfish, we took them up on it. I have been here several times and I always eat the Etoufee smothered catfish, which is the best I have had anywhere, but I have never had their crawfish. For crawfish,... More

We wish you'd be just as impressed with our crawfish as you have with our Smothered Catfish, but we really do appreciate your honesty. Unfortunately, some of the crawfish are a bit small right now, but it all depends on what we can get from our supplier. We suspect they'll get bigger as the season goes on, but we think... More

My favorite part of visiting Louisiana is the food. This food was GOOD, but I expect more in LA - especially when it comes to gumbo -which was just okay. That said, the crawfish ettouffee was fabulous, the hush puppies were really great, the crawfish pie was very good. The service was good. I would go back for ettouffe, but... More

Best crawfish I've had in a long time!!! Will definitely be visiting every time we are in town now. Bar tending needs some direction. Ordered a jäger bomb & it was pre-mixed instead of dropping the shot in the red bull, but hey, maybe that's how they make them. Waitress was attentive. Even heard another waitress send a drink back... More
