You don't really think about getting a true taste of the "Big Easy" in the middle of Tennessee, but that's what I experienced when visiting this restaurant. It's busy, noisy and yes, it reminds me of New Orleans! From the Fried Green Tomatoes (more like tomato steaks) , to Shrimp and Grits to Creme Brule / Bread Pudding, this was... More

Couples dinner date, they were busy but the food still took WAY too long, most of it came out cold, steaks were undercooked ... just really average all around, won't be back soon.

Eat here at least 3-4 times per month. Best all around restaurant in cookeville. Good selection and menu. Very consistent. Parking and crowds can be a problem. Good bar.

Arrived around 11:30 ...I would suggest you do the same as the place was packed with many others waiting in line as we left around 12:30. You will have the choice of dining downstairs, outside or upstairs. We decided to sit upstairs by the bar...nice atmosphere with several TVs so you can keep up with scores... The beer was fresh...

Party of four ate there last night. All the food tasted very good and the service was good but two of the meals along with both bowls of chowder were either tepid or cold. The oysters on my poboy were cold, not even room temperature. Both chowders and my wife's grilled shrimp and mashed potatoes were room temperature.

I'm a local, and I've never had a bad meal at Crawdaddy's. It's a little expensive for dinner, but once you eat the food you won't regret paying the price. Lunch prices aren't bad either. For your main course, I'd recommend pretty much anything on the menu, and if you're still up for dessert afterward go for the creme brûlée.... More

We stopped here for lunch while traveling through the area. We stopped on a Thursday about 11:20 am and we're the 1st one's there. I had the Louisiana hot garlic shrimp with grilled asparagus and red potatoes, my husband ordered the crab cakes with cajun rice and a side salad. Both of our meals were good, but I would have...
