My wife had blackened shrimp salad (very good great lettuce, lots of tomatoes, and shrimp) and I had the seafood gumbo, which came with an excellent peppery sauce, the kind that clears your sinuses. We were served by both wait people and they were friendly and thoughtful. The crowd, as expected... read more

Don't let the location fool you. It's in a small shopping center in the back corner. Wasn't even sure we had found the right place but boy had we ever. I've had many crawfish boils from my homemade to the heart of New Orleans and this is hands down the best I've ever had. The broth that the crawfish soak... More

One of Portland's hidden gems--if you are a fan of Cajun/creole cuisine, you absolutely cannot miss My Brother's Crawfish. These people (yes, the eponymous brothers) know how to food, and keep a friendly, cozy and authentically welcoming establishment.

We came here because of a Groupon. Kind of mixed reviews. They have a variety of fish and seafood in boils, gumbo and other preparations. Beware that the fried shrimp come whole with the heads on. OK in the dinner, kind of strange on a PoBoy sandwich. Some portions are small and some are large. The waitress was very busy... More

This humble little place in a strip mall seems to have a pretty good local following, but I did not enjoy it. Although it did have a fun vibe and energetic service, the food fell flat. I ordered the shrimp and was excited when the server asked me if I wanted the heads on, yes, please I replied. How disappointed... More

We found it through groupon, and gps. I've driven past it a100 times, it's really easy to miss the small sign that says simply"crawfish". We've been there 3 times or so and loved it! The staff is really friendly and fun. Our waitress was quick to point out what was good on the menu, after being asked. The gumbo, jambalaya,... More

So the service was very friendly. Everything was explained well. Overall the food was OK but everything came out at different times. We got our fries first, which we wanted, but our empty plate sat and sat even when 2 different people checked on us, neither picked it up. Then we got coleslaw that was supposed to be a side...

I have been to Louisiana many times, both to NOLA and the surrounding parishes. Small out of the way dive bars are great places to get authentic cajun and creole fare at good prices. My Bother's did not disappoint! We were not hungry enough to try a crawfish boil, but many around us were up to their elbows in the... More
