These are some of the best Crawfish around; they are spiced just right, and always easy to peel. The service is always great. Added bonus...BYOB!

Great food and service. We were spending the night in Winnie while passing through and found this place on Trip Advisor. We enjoy local places and this is just the type of great hole in the wall that we love. It is filled with friendly locals. If you want a drink its BYOB. What could be better?

This place is small, but has tons of great atmosphere. It has two rooms, but it's an open concept. The crawfish is fantastic, and it's definitley a place I'd go back to, if I ever have the chance. I had the all you can eat, and it was awesome! I was with a group, and some of the others got... More

What do you expect when a place only opens up during crawfish season? Good spicy crawfish? This place hit it out of the ball park!!! The largest crawfish I have been served this season. Get ready to get your hands messy because you don't eat crawfish with fork, knife or spoon. Ask for the pink sauce. Dip a freshly peeled... More

Great food, service, an wait staff. Very laid back facility and fingerlicking good. This is locally owned an owners on site. This is only open a few months out of the year. People cannot wait for them to open up each year. Well worth the visit. So come on down an give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

On my own, I would not have walked into this place. But a good friend took us. It's BYOBeer. It's basically a shrimp or crawfish place. I got the crawfish. They came out on a large tray/platter and had been cooked in a spicy spice mixture and were very good. You have to pull the heads off and shell the... More

Found this restaurant via a tip from birding guides. They specialize in crayfish, but offer a couple of other things. Ordered 5 lbs, the entire batch tasted great, nicely seasoned. Order sides such as potatoes, sausages, & corn separately. Family run, they were very friendly, helping us 'Yankees' with the ordering. Quite inexpensive.

Was down here on business and stopped in- was immediately greeted by Brian the owner... He is an avid fisherman and catches everything fresh himself daily. The food was excellent and service great. A true authentic southern texas gem!

The Crawfish Hole has the best crawfish around - perfect size and perfectly seasoned. Relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff and owners. You can even catch the owner, Brian, in his crawfish outfit and have a picture taken. This year they have added snow crabs and have a Boiled Platter with crabs, shrimp, crawfish, potato and corn for $19.99. A... More
