Perfect first date

My boyfriend and I had our first date there almost two years ago when he lived in an apartment right down the street.

We stopped for a late lunch, around 2:30. It was packed when we arrived, but we were quickly seated. I had a cup of pork gumbo and garden salad. The salad was fresh, the gumbo was tasteful, but thin. She had the French dip with au jus. The French dip was ok, but nothing special. The food was slow to... More

The food was fantastic. I highly recommend the Gator bites appetizer and the steak w/ Carpetbagger Steak (a fillet with crab sauce topping). I was there on a Saturday night and my night got off to a bad start when two waitresses collided beside me and one dropped a whole tray of full water glasses. Both of my pant legs... More

Unbelievable dinner.my husband said they were the best shrimp and grits he has ever had. I had the fried shrimp Po Boy - unbelievable!! When we ate there we were traveling south to New Orleans. Our meal at Crawdaddy's was the best meal on our entire trip!

This has GOT TO BE on the very top of my list of best restaurants in Cookeville. I've never ordered food I didn't think was ridiculously good! Even better is when the weather is nice & you can eat outside under the lights. If you haven't eaten here, you're just missing out. The shrimp & grits is to die for,... More

I went to Crawdaddy's with my family. I got the pesto chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and creamed spinach and it was very good. My wife had a shrimp po boy. The shrimp was very good and the French bread was good, it could have used a little more sauce though. My only issue was how long it took, the... More

We've had lunch on numerous occasions, and tonight had dinner there for the first time, with friends. My husband had the tuna, I had sea bass and our friend had a pork chop. The presentation was about average, but the entrees were cooked perfectly: the Yellow-Fin tuna was medium rare; so was the pork chop. Our friend said he'd never... More

I've been in and out of Cookeville for several months on business and finally got here - very recommended by all of my colleagues who live in the area. They have a downstairs area and upstairs where the bar is and other seating. I ate at the bar - the bartender, Will, was great, explained the menu and specials. I... More

I enjoyed my night at Crawdaddy's. Ordered the Cajun Sampler platter and was very pleased with the portions and quality of the food. Offered it up with choices of hot sauce but I did not need it as the food had plenty of heat for me already. Toss in great service from the bar and a good selection of craft... More
