4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

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

There is no parking available. They mixed up the table booking and then moved us twice. The waiters then mixed up our orders. Really bad experience.

Thank you for the review , the salmon starter is one of my favorites. The portion we serve is 80 grams . We have not decreased the portion size but tried to charge accordingly to the recent price increases which have been out of control on imported items. We hope the recent strengthening of the rand will help is in... More

Good food, good company, Brooklynn branch still the best. Very popular, best to make a reservation and try to sit on the outside.

Our last visit to Crawdaddy's, at least 3 other tables were listening to our conversation. Awkward, to say the least.

Head0ffice, Owner at Crawdaddy's, responded to this review

Well , I'm impressed you think your conversation is so important that three tables would bother to listen to it . We are a restaurant not a public library or meditation center . If you have travelled abroad you will realize that there is more than average spacing between the tables , so I find it difficult how you manage... More

Friendly staff very accommodating menu! I had kudu carpaccio bruschetta and the oxtail! Was AMAZING! Wanted to try something I'd never had and it was so so good. A LOT of food and very reasonably priced. A friend had the springbok carpaccio which was also delicious. If you want to try more mainstream food friends had crab curry, others had... More

Although part of a chain, whilst in Pretoria I ate at this CrawDaddys restaurant located on Brooklyn Piazza, corner of Middel Street and Dey Street. I liked it so much I went there twice. On both times sat on the outside balcony area. A great atmosphere, and I had the best steak meal I have ever eaten. I can thoroughly... More
