“Excellent Crawfish!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

The decor is definitely southern Louisiana. Picnic tables and box fans. The oleo runs freely and the crawfish are spicy. Come here for the food and enjoy the atmosphere.

Loved it!

“Good crawfish, just inconsistent”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

I have eaten here every year during crawfish season.

The good news first: When they are on they are on. The crawfish are some of the best you will ever have when they are good.

The bad: They are usually very crowded. Seating is limited and this place is hot as hell. No AC at all. The owner could care less after you get your food. Last time I was there he was so drunk he could barely stand. This place is always very expensive. No matter the market price, they get top dollar.

Overall, I think Half Shell Seafood on Texas is better food and value. Gonna start going there instead.

“Super crawfish and etouffee.”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

This is a hole in the wall type place with super food. I may have to go back to Matchitoches just to get more etouffee. It looked like everyone in town came though getting boiled crawfish and shrimp to go. The tempature was about 80 with no sign of A/C and no table clothes. You site at picnic tables. Like a said a hole in the wall with super food. I gave it an Excellent rating because I am all about the food.
