We have always gone to the Boiling Crab restaurants in California and Vegas and this place cannot even get close to it. They have a great variety of food in their menu. While the fried stuff and entrée complete with 2 sides are decently priced, their pricing for seafood such as shrimp 15.99 a lb, crab 47.99 a lb, etc... More

We are sorry you had a bad experience at Crawfish King. We believe our pricing our priced reasonable being in our location. As for our Dungeness Crab that is 47.99 ea and not lb. All our Dungeness crabs weigh between 1.8 to 2.10 lb a whole crab which are really 23.99 lb. We took your opinion by the horns and... More

I lived in New Orleans for 2 years and this place is absolute garbage. It is not authentic cajun food. While the servers were nice the food was absolutely atrocious. I ordered two pounds of crawfish and gumbo. The gumbo was way too salty and there definitely wasn't enough of it for $7. The crawfish was a joke. It looks... More

On New Year's Eve (12/31/13) my friends and I went to Crawfish King. They had dined there before and were excited to bring me. We arrived at approximately 8:00 pm. The place was mostly empty (not a good sign). The first thing the waiter told us was that they had run out of Jambalaya & Gumbo (not a good sign).... More

We had lunch at the Crawfish King in Seattle. My wife and I love Cajun food and were excited to try the place. Parking can be a little challenging due to the location in town, as I didn’t see any parking lot for the restaurant. We did find a spot on the curb not too far away. The place had... More

Overcooked 2 lb whole lobster (chewy like wet cardboard) inedible and there was no offer to replace it . Price changed from 26.99 to 29.99/lb after serving and after complaining about poor quality. Crawfish the size of pinky finger. All shell...no meat.. Quality was of no concern to the staff. $90 for 2 people and no worthwhile meal to show... More

We have been dying to try Cajun Crawfish and found ourselves at Crawfish King while on a recent visit to Seattle. Located in Chinatown. Got there right when they opened (we were one of only 3 tables served during our stay). There were only 2 servers working and service through our meal was attentive (they were friendly even when one... More

I had a great time here at Crawfish King. The waiter was great. She came and check with us at least 6 times and refill our drinks and give us extra butter when requested. Food came out hot and steaming. I'm from California and eat at Crab Hut and Boiling Crab many time. Growing up in Louisiana for 20 years... More
