Crawfish

Crawfish, also known as crayfish, crawdads or mudbugs to some visitors, are freshwater crustaceans found in the swamps and marshes of south Louisiana. Crawfish have become as much a staple of Cajun & Creole culinary culture as the accordion or fiddle is to our music. The crawfish season differs from year to year depending on the weather conditions, but the true season typically lasts from January to June with March, April and May being the peak months. With such a short season it's no wonder people wait in anticipation all year long for when their favorite crawfish spot opens up. Well, the wait is finally over because it's crawfish season y'all!

We've compiled a list of restaurants that are currently serving crawfish in and around the Lafayette area.

If you know of any other restaurants that are serving boiled crawfish let us know by clicking here and we'll add them to the list. Happy peeling!
