Ate here with family cause hubby loves the seafood gumbo. It is really good. FIL loved the fried alligator! They also had shrimp and egg stew on the buffet, can't get that many places. The waitress was super nice and attentive too!

Richards was opened when I was a toddler. It ha been consistently great crawfish and crabs. They have ventured out to buffets in the past few years. Still great cooking.

It's a busy place during crawfish season and for good reason. We got a five-pound tray of lovely crawfish that are nice-sized and delicious, pretty awesome for being so early in the season. Sides were a bit skimpy, however. They could throw a few more...More

All I have ever tried here are the crabs which are very good. A little pricey. Great rustic atmosphere, a local favorite. Almost a shrine to crabs, worth a pilgrimage.
