Reliably the best, biggest, and cleanest crawfish I've ever had. Situated in the midst of crawfish ponds, along a dirt/gravel path. Truly the middle of nowhere, but worth the trip.

Look forward to this place opening every crawfish season. There is no better place to get boiled crawfish. Get there when they open at 5:00, we got there around 5:30 and had to wait for a table. And there was a line outside the door...More

We wait all year for opening night at Hawk's.....that first bite...WOW! Indescribable. He's in the middle of nowhere...literally...but people line up and wait. One reason is that he purges his crawfish for 48 hours so they are clean and delicious. Also delicious bread pudding! Can't...More

Very good boiled crawfish! They have a choice of mild, hot, and super spicy. Very very friendly service from all the people that work there. And when they say in the middle of nowhere they mean it! We got there late about 9:30 at night...More

The crawfish are very good and clean. And I like that I can order extra spicy, because if your lips don't burn, they're not good crawfish. :) But the prices....WOW! They're a LOT pricier than most places for boiled crawfish. They ARE good, but not...More
