This restaurant is one of the few in Cookeville with good outdoor seating. If the weather permits and space is available, grab a table on the patio or the balcony. Be aware that there is music playing and it will be louder on the balcony, so if you are looking for quiet conversation then the patio is for you. There... More

After a great, but exhausting time at Cummins Falls, we decided to stop for a bite at Crawdaddy's. My husband fell in love with crawfish Etoufee during a recent trip to New Orleans and luckily they have it on their menu. Anyway, the outdoor seating was really, really nice. Our server was very nice and she didn't seem to care... More

Today I took my grandchildren and a friend on a tour of Tenn. Tech U. We decided to have lunch at Crawdaddy's because of good reviews. When we were seated inside there were only two other tables of guests. There was a wait for the outside tables so we opted for inside. After 45 minutes we finally received our meal.... More

Perhaps my expectations were high because it LOOKS like it's in "Naw' Lins" with the drawings of Bourbon & Royal Street scenes on the walls and a quaint courtyard outside. We both had the luncheon special of Fried Catfish on Rice. The fish was a bit too spicy for my pallet and dry. The rice on which it was placed... More

We were all treated well. My entree was Garden Distrrict Medallions, and it was in a great sauce. Others with me had the Salmon, and Sea Bass, also said it was very good. No room for desert, since it seemed like most entrees came with two sides.

Went for drinks. Ordered apps. Mussels were good but 9 unopened. They have me more but the chef should have checked.

Native New Orleanian and blown away by this place: the food, the atmosphere, the service, the people. Find it and go there! You will not be disappointed!

New Orleans cuisine outside of The Big Easy is certainly a mixed bag, but this place definitely hits the spot! They've got great oysters on the half shell, excellent gator bites, and a lively and attentive waitstaff. My Coke glass was never empty, and they have Abita Turbodog beer (manna from heaven). I like that they've preserved the old building... More

The food was pretty ordinary. I do not like restaurants that add the tip to the bill. That is for me to decide, not you.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in town. The food is always amazing, service is wonderful and love the atmosphere! If you go later in the evening when it starts to cool down, the patio is the best place to dine. Also if you like fried green tomatoes, then you have got to try their's!!
