I went here for dinner when I found out Nancy's was closed. Sadly I was disappointed. The food wasn't bad - it just wasn't excellent! I had fried shrimp and a baked potato. The shrimp were on the small side and, while they may have been fresh, they just weren't that good. A plus would be that service was good... More

This week I had dinner at Cajun Critters twice and had blue crabs and fresh blackened fish. The crabs were fat and sweet! And the fish was fresh and deliciously flavorful! This is a great seafood place with a fun atmosphere that the whole family will enjoy! It's a must stop while in Houma!

This is a good place to eat local seafood. The decor is unique. Somewhat on the expensive side. Parking can be tricky.

I was spending one night in town on business, asked someone at work where to get grilled ousters. They told me to go to Cajun Critters and that the Royal Red shrimp were a real treat. They were right, oysters amd shrimp were great. I sat at the bar, wait staff were just wonderful, really made me feel at home.... More

Enjoy lots of seafood fixed many ways, as well as boiled shrimp, crabs and crawfish. Red beans and fried fish plus salads and sandwiches and po-boys of all kinds.

Very nice and well laid out little place, Staff are friendly and helpful with menu & specials. Down home feeling and nice / neat / clean Menu has the usual Cajun selection, opt'd for the Shrimp Salad, better describe as a popcorn shrimp salad but tasty for sure and has homemade Ranch!! Ok pricing and worth the trip and try... More

We stopped in Cajun Critters on our way down to enjoy a fishing weekend in DuLarge. First visit so we weren't sure what to expect. We went with the old, "if the parking lot is this full on a Friday afternoon then its got to be good." We were not disappointed! I got a pound of boiled shrimp and potatoes.... More
