The crawfish and other shellfish are always in demand. They have their own fresh seafood market next door and I see deliveries all day during the day. The owner is there on a regular basis and has a great relationship his staff. On the weekends...they often have live music. We always enjoy our time there and the food is perfectly prepared. Crawfish starts being large enough after Mardi Gras and continues to get larger in April and May. Great gumbo.More

With Covid 19. The wait staff still refuse to wear masks. They had them around their necks. We had to leave. Not willing to die to eat seafood.

We moved to The Woodlands from Maryland last year. Finally had the opportunity to try the crabs. I was going to get live blues and steam them myself, but as the folks who own Crabby Daddy’s hail from Charm City, I figured I’d let them...steam them and see if it matched my “standards”. It does! The crabs were very large and packed with meat, and definitely tasted like steamed crabs back home. I know this area of the country boils seafood, but if you’ve ever wondered how crabs taste in Maryland, try the steamed crabs at Crabby Daddy’s. You will not be disappointed!More

My daughter and I visited Crab Daddy’s for lunch last week. We both ordered the Seafood Pasta Salad although I asked mine to be served without the pasta with salad dressing on the side. My daughter just requested the usual dish. After awhile the waitress...appeared to ask if we wanted a fish and scallops plate that the chef made by accident. Since neither of us like scallops, we requested the order we had placed. My order was correct but my daughter’s was served with no pasta and dressing on the side which is not what she ordered. For $18 all we received were three shrimp, about five small pieces of crab meat and four little crab fingers. Very disappointing. In addition, the tomatoes were barely pink. My husband and I buy their fresh shrimp frequently to cook at home, but this lunch was lacking in quality and quantity. The waitress was very cordial and helpful, but for a seafood restaurant the food was below expectations. Perhaps the quality of the food is why so few customers were there.More

Definitely a place to stop if you love seafood! The buffet is reasonably priced for what you get and the food is great. There’s also a great menu for anyone is your party that doesn’t like seafood. And as our bonus, our waitress was phenomenal!...Would recommend and would come again.More

We try this place and ended up not liking it. Wrong food from what we ordered is understandable if they have a new staff, but blend taste of almost all the food we ordered ? nope can't do. We had better.

It took a long time for our server to take our drink order and they were mostly water. He tells us that they are understaffed. There weren't that many patrons in there. Then the server takes our order. 15 minutes later, he comes back to...table and says he lost our order. So, he wants us to reorder without giving us menus. He leaves the table without taking our order and goes and gets the manager, who finishes taking our order and serving us. He does apologize for the 1st server who he said was "kind of sick" and didn't sleep well the night before. The food was mediocre. We won't be back.More

A coworker and I had been planning this dinner for a week. We got there at 5 p.m. on a Saturday. We were practically the only ones there, which seemed odd. I got the oysters Rockefeller and a plate of two crab cakes which were...advertised as "award winning Maryland style...etc." The oysters were so small I could hardly find them under what was supposed to be a "crab/parmesan" mixture. The "crab" cakes were even worse. The were about 1/2 inch thick, and overcooked. The big sin was that there was almost NO crab in them. Just some kind of batter or something. Maybe the same thing that they topped the oysters with? Whatever it was, it was terrible. The service was o.k., but not enough to ever get me back there.More
