First time here, seems very popular. Baby back ribs were tough, but onion rings and fish were excellent. Shrimps are nice and meaty, breaking could have been a little more done. Tea was really good. Price was average for this type of place.

Local restaurant provides great food and service...and they do it consistently. Our favorite is the "Steak and Blue Cheese Salad." However, there are many other tasty dishes including boiled crawfish (in season), crab bites, and creative daily specials.

The Crawfish House is very good and above average. The service was great and the restaurant is very clean. I had 1 # of crawfish as an appetizer and they were $5. I have had better, but I have also had worse. For my meal I had fried oysters with potatoes and veggies which was good. Opelousas isn't exactly over... More

We were looking for authentic Louisiana style food. Boy did we find it. Laid back, clean , enjoyable experience for sure. The Crawfish was outstanding and my seafood platter was great. The kids loved their burgers too. We will definitely be back.

We arrived right before 9 on a Friday night. I understand that 9 may be a bit late but what happened to customer service! Took our order fast and food was out quickly but felt very rushed to finish as three different employees came out to peek and see if we were done so they could go home. Wasn't even... More

Great choice when visiting Opelousas. The food was authentic and delicious. Between the 2 of us, we had gumbo (wow!), Cajun girl po' boy, and bread pudding. Perfect end to a long day of driving. The service was quick and on point as well. Local food, flavors, restaurant.

Stopped in while driving between New Orleans and Dallas for lunch after reading reviews, this place did not disappoint at all. Our group of four had the Cajun Girl Po Boy, a Crawfish Po Boy, Chicken and Sausage Gumbo and Seafood Gumbo, with Sweet Potato Fries and Onion Rings. The Cajun Girl was unlike anything I'd ever had, which props... More

We went in for a casual dinner. I had an eggplant savage. I was amazed at the quality of food and taste. My date had a seafood salad. It was terrific. I eat seafood throughout Acadiana regular. This is the best I've had. Our server was Dione. Easy to see she loved her job. Passed regular to see if everything... More
