The food and service is great but space is at a premium and you need to book, especially on Fridays and week nights!

I regularly eat at Crawdaddy's Brooklyn.. The atmosphere is great, the food is value for money and the service is tops. They serve a variety of food.. So something for everyone. A place you can go to with friends or colleagues.. You must make a booking in the evenings because they are busy.

We have been in this restaurant a couple of times and always we left happy. Plenty parking space. Meals are very generous in size and are well prepared and presented. Great and friendly service.

I've been to Crawdaddy's 4 times before this, and the food is always really great and the service is never bad. So this time, we booked a table for 7pm and got there 6.47pm, and were seated at table B51, I will NEVER sit there again. It's on the left, in a corner with a few tables for 2 across... More

Menu is very wide, there is definitely something for everyone. Meals are very generous in size, so despite the price represents good value. The Silverlakes branch has a great kiddies play area, but it gets VERY hot in the summer.

I have now been to all three Crawdaddy's restaurants in Pretoria and it is difficult to choose which one is best. This is the original and is as busy as any of the others. The reason for not giving 5 stars is the noisy terrace we were seated on with a very irritating giggling group next to us. Apart from... More

First time at CrawDaddy's and I was very impressed. The service was good even though the restaurant was full and our waiter was very friendly. The Jalapeno and Bacon burger I had was fantastic, I would definitely go and have the meal again. The wine per glass menu is limited and I would of liked a wider variety of wines... More
