Had to travel to Shreveport today for business and wanted to try some place local for lunch while we were in town. Crawdaddy's sounded good so we decided to check it out. It was a truly fantastic meal. The fried green tomatoes were a delicious...treat followed by fish and oysters for me along with pickled tomatoes and a seafood salad for my wife. The fish and oysters were seasoned to perfection. The fried green tomatoes were a rare find, but were excellent. My wife was well pleased with the seafood salad. Our waitress was attentive and made sure our tea was kept full and we had everything we needed. The prices are reasonable especially when you consider the quality of the meal. In the future we will not visit Shreveport without including Crawdaddy's in our plans.More

Traveling into Shreveport on I20. It had been a long day and we coudn't wait to get some Cajun cooking. Crawdaddy's Kitchen was on our bucket list and happened to be on the side of town we were going into Shreveport on. We had a...ball. Wonderful atmosphere, music...just the perfect Cajun experience we were looking for. My friend had the shrimp combo plate and I had my standard catfish. They brought out these plates and there was no way we could eat it all. The Cajun potatoes were so good but very spicey hot. It didn't stop me from eating them but I drank a LOT of tea! Visited with the neighboring table and gave them the food I knew I wasn't going to eat. Just a neighborly atmosphere. Wait staff was excellent. It was a Sunday night and extremely busy but food came out timely. Will certainly return the next time I'm in the area.More

Hush puppys were not hot, might have been sitting around for a while. Not very flavorful either. Crab dinner bland, too much breading. Overall 5/10 Oh also they charged 3% if you use your debt card, without telling you or giving you the cash option.

Service was phenomenal. Ate the egg roll appetizer which was good. We had the fish entoufee which was pretty good. The fried fish was the star of the show. The breading was cornmeal based and was perfect crispy. 10/10 on the fish. The people next...to us looked to really be enjoying the crawfish.More

Crawdaddy’s Kitchen is a must stop for us when we spend a few days in Shreveport. I have never had a disappointing meal. My wife rates their fried catfish among the best she has had anywhere. Since it is crawfish season, I ordered 3 lbs...of crawfish twice. Only suggestion is to have real melted butter, not the margarine spread they serve. Real butter is better for dipping crawfish and hush puppies. NOTE: Not their fault, but the tap water in the area is soooo awful. Ruins iced tea and ice in all the drinks. Order beer or mixed drinks.More

We saw other reviews and decided to have lunch here - awesome. We started with some fried alligator that was tasty and fresh. We went went 3shrimp/3 fried fish strips - served with fries, cole slaw and the most amazing tasting pickled green tomatoes. The...hospitality and quality of the food make this place a 10 out of 10More

Excellent food and service - meet another couple to celebrate the wife’s special day (her request was Cajun food). The table started with a couple of appetizers (boudin balls and crawfish cornbread) - then we followed it up with crawfish etouffee, fried crawfish, red beans...and rice, and boiled shrimp - plenty of food for everyone (in fact took some home) - the noise level wasn’t very bad but were there after the noon rush.More

The boudin balls are awesome at Crawdaddys. Never been to Billys so I cannot compare. We tried almost everything at Crawdaddys and found it all excellent. Sorry I cannot compare to Billys for you.
