Crawfish seasoned the right way. Priced same as other restaurants. Discount price for three pounds or more. This is my new place during crawfish season. Service can use some improvement.

Reviewed April 23, 2019

We tend to have crawfish every year during the season. This place did serve it but it was some what over priced. The service was a little poor and slow. The seafood bucket was good but as I say, the place is pricey.
