The absolute worst. The rice was undercooked and crunchy. The seafood terribly overcooked and the sauce was inedible. I never send food back but it had to be done this time. They never sent a manager to talk to us or apologize. We won't be back. Usually it's the service that sucks here but now it's the food.

They have a much larger menu than what's listed here. Going in, I thought it was mostly cajun but they have something for everyone. I had crab cakes which were very good. I also had the pecan cobbler which was awesome as well.

I'm a travel nurse so I try to shy away from the chain restaurants and focus more on the local hotspots. Crawdaddy's was suggested to me by my coworkers and I highly recommend it. I have had the lamb and the fried seafood platter. My wife prefers the steak. The meal always comes out fresh and steaming on the plate.... More

If your looking for Cajun food this is a good choice! The black and blue Caesar salad is really good too. The atmosphere is lots of fun but service can be hit or miss but most of time is good.

Great Service. The best Fried Green Tomatoes ever! They have reasonably priced daily lunch specials. And we all love their Fried Okra.

Love Crawdaddy's! Good Southern food, friendly service, and an awesome building with a courtyard in the back. I highly recommend it for date night or really any special occasion.

It was OK - food was mostly cooked well and tasted good (roasted potatoes were quite undercooked). Server was very friendly and she was quick. Due to GF needs that they didn't really have a handle on, I won't be back, but if I didn't need GF it would be a decent occasional eatery.

Good Cajun food and they know who to make a mean drink!!! Sunday brunch is amazing along with the band that plays outside and the bloody Marys. Always a good meal

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff. It was very good. Loved the unusual venue of an old house. the food was very good, the service was also very good. Would stop here again if we are ever passing through.
