Waited 20 minutes with an reservation. Server took care of other tables and gave me and my son very little attention. Food runners helped refill our drinks and so on. Crawfish was extremely mushy. Manager said that was the best she could do. Will not be returning ever again.

The crawfish were WAY overpriced, and did not include potatoes and corn as advertised. They were under-spiced and bland.

The final bill for 4 people was $185, and when I presented my OpenTable coupon Card for $10, the waitress brought back an adjusted bill (made it $195) so there was not $10 taken off as expected.

Just overall bad experience. Name is "Crawfish Town USA" and the crawfish were bland, and way under-seasoned. I'm a south LA native, and this was shameful.

It was great! Crawfish were seasoned perfectly, even bought some seasoning from the market inside of the restaurant. We were seated quickly, service was wonderful. They were very accommodating to the children in our party.

1 waitress with 14 people is a little chaotic. She couldn't remember who ordered what. And she was slow bringing the drinks. No one got desert. It was a birthday celebration. Food was fantastic as always. To be fair to the waitress, the restaurant was extremely busy. We will be back.

Food was delicious! We had seven in our group and all were very satisfied. Food service was a little slow but we liked that we had time to enjoy our appetizers and not be rushed. Food and service are important but ALL of us enjoyed the spacious table. We weren’t searching for a place to move something so we could fit our glass or a plate or the ketchup bottle. I know, sounds crazy but some restaurants have small tables. Napkins are on the table and plentiful.

Some food items were great and others not so good. I highly recommend the stuffed mushrooms and the cheesecake. The crab I ordered to top my salad was no good and the Atchafalaya meal was too salty.

This restaurant has the best menu for all of the family's picky eaters. The older crowd, believe it or not, doesn't really eat boiled crawfish, but they get top quality fried catfish or shrimp! The boiled crawfish is great because they don't put the seasoning on the outside; it's boiled in.

We arrived hungry and our waitress was wonderful! She recognized that some of us needed to eat and she offered bread and brought it immediately. Our food came out really quick. It was delicious and we were back on the road for home. I wish I had the name of our sweet waitress. She was awesome and recognized a grumpy, hungry man! 😊

Dined here for Thanksgiving - we've always had a big family Thanksgiving at home with lots of extended family, so I wasn't sure what to expect from going to a restaurant on Thanksgiving. It turned out to be a fabulous day! Everyone there was so pleasant and friendly, lots of really good food (possibly the best fried fish I've ever had), and even though it was a packed house, the buffet line was a breeze to get thru and everything was hot and fresh. Special thanks to our waiter, Heather!

Roux for chicken and sausage gumbo was either old or burned... u could could taste the burnt flavor. Same thing for the spinach/ artichoke dip and the Hush puppies and oysters were fried too long. The catfish and shrimp were perfectly fried and were delicious We reserved a table for 7 and they sat us at a 6 top and had to pull a chair to the end which made it a little crowded.

First, the hostess accommodated us with a table of preference.
We had boiled crawfish. The crawfish came to the table piping hot, perfectly seasoned, large in size and perfectly cooked; tender and easy to peel.
Our server was attentive and pleasant. :-)

Was really impressed by the food, service, and value of our meal. The crawfish were perfect and the caesar salad was delicious. The service was outstanding and very little wait time as the place was really crowded. The only complaint that my wife and I had was the corn on the cob could've been a little warmer. Other than that it was some of the best crawfish I had all season.

The waitress was amazing! Had a couple of dislikes with the food- rice was hard and while everything from the appetizers to even the bread was spicy (in a good way), the crawfish was not. If we go again we will definitely order the spicy crawfish instead of regular. The seafood 4 course dinner is amazing and a great value! Would be enough food to share with a significant other or bestie. Bread pudding is a must!
