Buffet with fried catfish, shrimp, "mud bugs", onion rings and frog legs, gumbo and etouffée, boiled shrimp and crawfish hush puppies, crab balls, corn nuggets…you name it. Deep Breaded and deep-fried or boiled. There was a salad bar, too, but didn't check it out. (No room for that!) Service was prompt and friendly. It was all you could possibly want... More

Located on LA Hwy 335 on the outskirts of Abbeville, LA sits Richard's Seafood Patio. It appears to be an old store or garage that had been enclosed long, long ago. If you are looking for atmosphere, go to Shuck's, Dupuy's or Black's all located within a few blocks of each other in Abbeville. Although it claims to be a... More

Phone in the wall type place but the food was fantastic. Had catfish and crawfish for the first time and was delighted at how good they were. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful considering we were crawfish virgins so to speak. Locals that were there came over and talked with us once they found out we were from Alberta. Even... More

We learned about Richards from a friend who raved about the crawfish so my wife and I made the trek from New Orleans and we were so glad we did. I had to use GPS as Abbeville is not easy to get around. We got there before opening and looked at the empty parking lot and metal clad building wondering... More

When we read on facebook that Richard's was offering crawfish that evening, we decided to go... Arriving only minutes after opening, we still had to wait in line for a half hour to get in... But, we made good use of that time, talking to locals who were also waiting. Our favorite was a local crawfish farmer that was waiting... More

I had the seafood buffet and everything I tried was well seasoned. My dinner companion (from the area) had the select crabs and found them to be excellent in size and seasoning. The price is per crab but if they are that good it is worth it. I would not recommend the place for atmosphere. I was a little concerned... More

You have to try this place. Great food, great service and great prices. They have a great menu choice or even a buffet.

The food is just okay. Nothing to get excited over. You can find much better at several other local establishments. Service is poor and management is rude, even for a polite complaint. Will never go again. :(
