The interior of the restaurant has been completely renovated with French Quarter iron, painted brick walls, and a post and beam system which takes you all the way back to a New Orleans restaurant at the turn of the century. The Voodoo Lounge is a 200-seat showroom featuring Blues, Jazz, and Zydeco music.
There is a wide offering of traditional Cajun and New Orleans style cooking. The first time I went to Crawdaddy's, I had recently returned from New Orleans. I wasn't sure what to expect especially after having eaten the real thing. I was pleasantly surprised. The food tastes and looks authentic! And do you ever get your money's worth! There is so much food on the plate, that even the most hungry will have some difficulty finishing! And you must try the large selection of hot sauces available at every table. I love hot and spicy food so this is my kind of restaurant. I've never had anything that I didn't like.
My sister and I took my Danish host parents to Crawdaddy's. I wasn't exactly sure how they would deal with the spicy food as Danish food is not hot or spicy. My host dad stayed away from the hot sauces, but I think my host mom tried every one there was on the table!
This is a very popular place so I would recommend reservations. You can check their website for further information, including upcoming musicians or give them a call. Check it out!
