Cajun Claws is a small town delight! A true Cajun experience. Mr Donnie Choate, born and raised in Abbeville, gives a wonderful dining experience. At Cajun Claws your platter consists of hand picked prime crawfish. Add corn, and potatoes and your meal is complete? Seasoned to perfection, the true Cajun cuisine. Also a town with some of the friendliest people you will ever meet.

I taste SUGAR in their fried shrimp. I prefer a salty taste. I also thought the crawfish was good just not as flavorful as I prefer. It all depends on your tastes.

We were in Abbeville for Thanksgiving when we heard that Cajun Claws had just opened for the season. Went there on Friday night; the wait wasn't too bad and it was worth it. The spicy crawfish were large and tasty. Service isn't fast, but you aren't buying fast food. Our server was friendly and we felt welcome even though we were among only a few diners who weren't locals.

We live in Lafayette which is about 20 miles from Abbeville. During crawfish season we dine at Cajun Claws as often as we can. The boiled crawfish are second to none. Perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, all very large (select) and clean. They are priced accordingly (not a budget meal). The restaurant also has other delicious selections on the menu; however, most of us go for to eat the crawfish. There are only about 15 dining tables, so during peak season there can be a really long wait for a table. There is a bar area where you can wait. As the spring wears on, the wait time--especially on week nights--is not bad at all. We always call ahead. Cajun Claws closed for the season last night (June 7). They will likely reopen in November. Of all the restaurants in southwest Louisiana, this is one of our very favorites!
