We visit PawPaw's every week. They have the best catfish and seafood platter in the area. They close too early 20:00 but the food and service is great. Just a small place but worth the wait if you can get in.

Crawfish are seasonal. If you are asking if the restaurant serves them only seasonally, you would have to direct this question to them.
