Wasn't sure what to expect, was pleasantly surprised to say the least! I got two po'boys, Shrimp, and oyster. Also got fried cauliflower, and an order of fried okra. Literally the best po'boys I've had here. The okra was spectacular! So awesome that they rebuilt...More

Love the Decore. We had gumbo and soft shell crab. Grilled oysters were good though texture varied from oyster to oyster. The seasoning on fried soft shell crab was a bit too salty and the crab was mostly shell. Would probably get crawfish or another...More

My daughter and I ate at Cajun Critters, first visit there. Crab claws were great, she had chicken and sausage gumbo which was perfect and my charbroiled oysters were excellent, and weren’t drowning in butter—which is so much better for me.

The #1 male select blue crabs are awesome! One of my favorite dining spots in Houma. Definitely a repeat.

I had the fried soft shell crabs and my wife had boiled Dungeness crab. We haven't been to the new location yet but plan to go soon, have seen plenty good reviews.

Good atmosphere with traditional Cajun food. Didn't get to try the boiled seafood. Went the fried and blackened route. Everything was good but the crawfish etouffee. It was more like a bisque. The blacked shrimp and soft shell crabs were real good. The onion ring...More

I don't see where all the good reviews come from. I had boiled crawfish, they were just average taste, kind of small to boot. Three little pieces of potato. One corn just boiled No Seasoning. Waitresses running every where but another waitress refilled my water...More

My husband and I live in Georgia and we were in Houma for a week working. We'd been told by a few of the locals about Cajun Critters. It's a neat little looking place upon arrival. Staff greets you immediately when you walk in. We...More
