Good king crab

Food was good and filling. Sever was excellent explained how everything worked on the menu. My only concern was the dirty bathrooms makes me wonder what the standards are in the kitchen. Food was good

I lived in New Orleans for 2 years and this place is absolute garbage. It is not authentic cajun food. While the servers were nice the food was absolutely atrocious. I ordered two pounds of crawfish and gumbo. The gumbo was way too salty and there definitely wasn't enough of it for $7. The crawfish was a joke. It looks... More

On New Year's Eve (12/31/13) my friends and I went to Crawfish King. They had dined there before and were excited to bring me. We arrived at approximately 8:00 pm. The place was mostly empty (not a good sign). The first thing the waiter told us was that they had run out of Jambalaya & Gumbo (not a good sign).... More

We had lunch at the Crawfish King in Seattle. My wife and I love Cajun food and were excited to try the place. Parking can be a little challenging due to the location in town, as I didn’t see any parking lot for the restaurant. We did find a spot on the curb not too far away. The place had... More

Overcooked 2 lb whole lobster (chewy like wet cardboard) inedible and there was no offer to replace it . Price changed from 26.99 to 29.99/lb after serving and after complaining about poor quality. Crawfish the size of pinky finger. All shell...no meat.. Quality was of no concern to the staff. $90 for 2 people and no worthwhile meal to show... More

We have been dying to try Cajun Crawfish and found ourselves at Crawfish King while on a recent visit to Seattle. Located in Chinatown. Got there right when they opened (we were one of only 3 tables served during our stay). There were only 2 servers working and service through our meal was attentive (they were friendly even when one... More

I had a great time here at Crawfish King. The waiter was great. She came and check with us at least 6 times and refill our drinks and give us extra butter when requested. Food came out hot and steaming. I'm from California and eat at Crab Hut and Boiling Crab many time. Growing up in Louisiana for 20 years... More

Love, love, love this place. Yes, a cajun place in the middle of the International District - doesn't make a lot of sense, but the food is fabulous. When you walk in it's got the look of a chain seafood place - cute but goofy. But the food! We always get pretty much the same thing: pound of shrimp, sausage,... More
