Met a lot of locals eating there....what a fantastic little spot. Located in a nice part of town, with lots of parking. Amazing Crawdads....get the Extra Hot!! You will come back!! It's old and worn, but very clean and the staff are great, as were the customers. I'll be back!

We stopped in Shreveport on our way from Texas to New Orleans and raced here to make it before they closed. We wanted crawfish as soon as we crossed the state line. This place did not disappoint. The food was soooo good, the drinks were strong and our servers were friendly. It was a great start to our trip!

We stopped here while passing through town for a quick lunch. Both had the fried shrimp which came with pickled green tomatoes, cole slaw, French fries and hush puppies. The shrimp, fries, and hush puppies were all fresh and perfectly seasoned with a Cajun attitude. The service was attentive if not overly friendly. The menu also had meat pies and... More

My husband and I went to Crawdaddy's on a whim.... He had the platter and I ordered the gumbo.... it was very good... We enjoy people watching, so this is definitely an entertaining place for that! As we left, realizing that we were about to take a trip to Nashville for New Years, we bought two King Cakes to take... More

Excellent cajun food! Etoufee was some of the best I've had. Place was clean and Ashley took great care of us. Would go again tomorrow if it wasn't 250 miles from home!

We stopped in at Crawdaddy's after reading the reviews on TA and Yelp. Having only lived in Louisiana for a year I am far from an expert on Cajun food and which restaurant has the best crawfish in Shreveport. However, when it comes to quality food, good prices, and good service this is one of the best I've been to... More

Crawfish, oysters, tea -- sounds like the perfect taste of all our favorite Cajun dishes! Thanks for joining us for a bite, but we're sorry your husband wasn't a fan of our stuffed crab. We'd love to know more about that, so let us know if you have any other feedback! Until then, thanks so much for giving us a... More

Not that I needed an excuse to eat here, but we went when I received my $10 birthday discount. Awesome crispy fried oysters and fried catfish. We also had fantastic service. Ask for Nona.

If your wanting real Cajun food while here from out of town this is where you want to go. I've had most everything on the menu and never had a bad dish. Service is good too however not a cheap place to eat but you get what you pay for!

If you're looking for authentic Cajun cooking, this is it. If you're looking for dining ambience, this is NOT the place! Blue jeans, cutoff shorts and sandals are perfect. Oysters on the half shell (otherwise known as "raw oysters"), crawfish etouffee, spicy gumbo, are my favs here. Friendly staff, families welcome.
