“Worst meal I've had in ages”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

I'm really wondering how anyone can give this pace a good review. We stopped here for dinner on the way out of Callaway Gardens. We should have eaten there. We were the first ones there for dinner, so you think we would get fresh food. The lettuce in the salad had two big pieces that were rotten. The shrimp po boy sandwich was tasteless frozen shrimp. The mesquite grilled chicken consisted of two small pieces of dry chicken breast. The prices are high for such poor quality.

The service was good, though, but the food was bad.

“vaguely cajun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

People from New Orleans can be brutal on restaurants which purport to be serving cajun or creole food. Recently I had gumbo at Cricket's. It was really more of a soup than a gumbo and was frankly disappointing. I have had red beans and rice at this restaurant as well and I would sum up the experience as similar to having Italian food in an out of the way provincial Chinese city.
On the plus side their other dishes looked good though I didn't try any. The staff seem very pleasant and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Another quibble is that the service does seem a mite slow.

“Cricket's - a must try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Cricket's is a great place to go if you are in the area. My husband and I have eaten there the two times we were staying at Calaway Gardens. Both times were great experiences mostly due to our waitress Alexis. She provided excellence service and made our evening special. Everyone is friendly from the person at the door seating, to the owners who stop by to see how everything is. Everything we have tried off the menu has been tastey. A must try is the bread pudding and the butter cream cake. We will be back as soon as we can.
