Get away! Don't even stop unless your a crab fisherman or some lost refugee. This has got to be some health violations here somewhere. We got a drink from a can over ice and it smelled bad and the locals where grungy. I didn't bring my tattoos so we left.

Went with my son and grandson to this very casual Louisiana style dining shack. It was fun, but not great food. As I recall, they spread butcher paper on the table and then and then poured out a combination of simple foods that had been boiled together. There were small sausages, shrimp, craw dads, corn cobs, and chunks of potato.... More

The food at best is OK. I suspect the restaraunt is one of those places people "experience" after a few at the lake. I'm simply not used to seeing a cook smoking behind the bar or for that matter a pregnant waitress smoking when seated in between bringing us our food and resting. If you are not down with that,...

My boyfriend and I found Plookys while spending a long weekend at Canyon Lake. We were in the mood for crawfish and made the best decision to eat Plookys. The service was great, the owners were extremely friendly and didn't hesitate to welcome us in. The food was excellent. Can't wait to visit again next year!

It is a good value for the money when you are in the mood for a shrimp boil with potatoes and corn. They also have crawfish, the owners are friendly.

Best Crawfish in Texas if you ask me. They are a little pricey, but the taste is well worth it!!! Bring your own beer/wine or cocktails.

We went with to Plooky's based on good reviews from Urbanspoon. The shrimp was good, the gumbo was great, the boudin was mushy:(. They had a large group and seemed to be overwhelmed and never got several things we asked for. We are from Austin and not used to smoking allowed but moved to a table in the corner away... More
