Stopped by around 7:00 on a Sunday eve. Take out line was pretty long, however we were eating there. We were 2nd in line behind person at order window and it seemed to take a while to order. Crawfish were good as well as crab legs. They do not serve alcohol so you can bring your cooler, etc for charge.... More

If you want to experience the real Missisippi, you have to go here. Order up a couple of pounds of steamed crawdads. Employees will show you how to get the meat out. You can also get boiled shrimp, spicy sausage and other southern staples. You order at the counter, you take it to a picnic table inside or out with... More

Crawdads in season and $5.15 a pound seemed high. Since that is the name of the restaurant, understandable. They had crab legs, sausage, shrimp and sides and the place was mostly open air (not inside) and on a cold, windy, wet day I was glad to eat something that warmed me up from the insides. Seasoning was extra salty, which... More

I tend to visit the Crawdad Hole at least once a week when crawfish is in season. They have remodeled the dining area and it looks great.

Atmosphere is casual and laid-back. Order at the counter and grab a roll of paper towels - crawfish come out hot, steamy and seasoned to perfection! No mouth burn in the heat - just excellent flavor! Also, try the tamales. They're some of the best around! BYOB if you want alcohol. There is a pouring charge per person, but it... More

Went to dinner with a coworker. It took us a minute to find the entrance as there's a carryout when you walk up. Parking was tight too. You order at a window and wait for your food. The man at the window was not friendly at all when we asked a couple of questions. The tamales, crawfish and shrimp were... More

Excellent crawfish and boiled shrimp. Good prices. You can bring your own beer. It's a perfect place! Been here a dozen or so times, never had single bad experience. Always top notch, always great service. Big thumbs up!

The crawfish are the best I've had outside of Louisiana. the shrimp are awesome also (get the butter sauce with them). Go there with a cooler (you just have to pay uncorking fee for your beers) and sit all afternoon with your friends and have a crawfish boil. Seriously the best time.

Everything we ordered was delicious and a reasonable price range! You can bring your own drinks or just order a drink when you place your order. You can also bring your own beer.
