“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

This was my first time trying crawfish.

Crawdaddy gives quite the experience. As noted, butcher paper on the tables and boiled seafood and corn served in a plastic bag.

The food was tasty, but I would have appreciated more options, other than deep fried and carbs, for sides.

The sauce has a quite a kick. I found medium very spicy and I'm fairly used to spice, so keep that in mind when ordering.

“Hot Seafood in a Bag”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

Get ready for a messy experience! Butcher Paper on the tables and plastic bibs are the starting point. The crab, shrimp, and crayfish / sausage are served in polyethylene bags carried to the table in a pail. Getting at the meat is part of the fun, and a working knowledge of invertebrate anatomy is helpful especially when searching for the tiny bit of tail meat in each crayfish. The Snow Crab was delicious, but a bit painful to get to with the flimsy scissors provided.
