Went here for dinner and had the calamari steak (I think that's what it was called) and it was absolutely delicious. Finished off with creme brûlée and it was also incredible. I highly recommend!

Craw daddy's is a nice cosy restaurant with a bar and had a live band playing. I had the blackened catfish with fries and a side of salad with a balsamic reduction. The fish was cooked really well and was moist and the balsamic reduction was really tasty and complimented the salad nicely. The staff were friendly and attentive and... More

We came here on Valentines Day and it was wonderful. 2nd floor Crawdaddy's. It is a little pricey but well worth it. I had Chicken Cordon Bleu and my husband had the bayou shrimp, absolutely wonderful. Then the chocolate Mousse for dessert, was in heaven. Every time i started thinking about the price I would quickly forget the price when... More

We did an early meal and were able to get a great table outside. Service was wonderful and the food was better. The only shortfall of a "N'awlin's" style restaurant was not having real beignets. Now THAT would have been over the top perfection.

An excellent place for lunch, dinner, casual drinking at the bar and listening to great live music. The Creole/Cajin featured menu provides some wonderful options for something different! For dinner, dine upstairs if you want "fine dining" or downstairs for a more casual atmosphere.

Found this place after buying a Groupon for half off dinner. Great place to eat with two different restaurants in same building. Upstairs is more upscale dinning without being snobbish. The upstairs wait staff is very friendly, knowledgable about the whole menu and very accommodating. Even though the menu is upscale, you can still wear shorts in the summer and... More

We were on our way to Sequoia national Park and stopped in Visalia for the night. We found Crawdaddy's in our guidebook and it sounded like a great place to have cajun food, NOLA style. The only problem was that this place was downtown on a very busy street populated with many bars and restaurants. Parking our car was difficult... More

I had been to Crawdaddy's years ago to catch a local band and have a couple of drinks in their bar. It was fun then, but for some reason, never went back for dinner. Wish we had. I had no idea how great their dinners were until we missed a show at the movie theatre across the street and decided... More
