    It’s ok, not bad, but not good either. Just average food. Drinks from the bar were not good. Three people in our party, we each ordered a different mixed drink and all agreed that not any of the three drinks were worth drinking. None of us finished the drinks or the food. Our server was very pleasant, though. If there is anything good about this place, it was the friendly service. We will not be return guests, nothing here worth returning for.

    The young lady that was our server was superb. The food was decent but over priced.( I understand, tourist vacation area). My area of being a sorry restaurant was that the men’s toilet inside the restaurant had a sink that was not functional.need to wash hands after eat a low country boil. Went to restroom outside area of restaurant and found that the sink worked but the toilet full of s**t and would not flush. Very disappointed with the Crazy Lobster after that. Paid bill and rushed away. Will never return.

    Ordered crab legs but they didn’t have any utensils. Ordered drinks but we had to find the manager to get them after they didn’t arrive for 45 minutes. As soon as we sat the waitress wanted our order and didn’t give us any time. Chicken tenders for kids had no chicken in them.

    Food was terrible - how do you get mushy boiled shrimp? And pasta creole was penne with tomato sauce, and a splash of Tabasco. Service was lacking. On a Friday night.

    We had to wait 15 minutes after we were seated before wait staff got our drink order. The restaurant was really noisy with kids running about in the main dining room. The meal was good, but overpriced. My wife’s lobster fettuccine was good, albeit, the lobster was over cooked. I heard a couple behind us complain the staff was not very attentive.

    They were under staffed so the server just had to many tables to service. If you are that under staffed I’m wondering why you are taking reservations or allowing walk-ins.

    The location was great and atmosphere was amazing. The food was just average. And the service was absolutely horrible we had to wait 10 to 20 minutes at a time to see our server. At the end of the meal or entire table was cleaned off and we were waiting for the ticket for over 20 minutes. I would not eat here again.

    IF YOU ENJOY THIS HONEST REVIEW, PLEASE “Like it” so that others can read it. Here is my review: As a native of Louisiana, I have to say that the fact that this restaurant claims to be Cajun is disgraceful to my home state. The food was incredibly over-seasoned, and the service was pretty bad. To start off, we made a reservation to be seated outside by the water. When we arrived, they put us inside against a wall - as far as possible from the water. We did not have a view and the ambiance was completely ruined. When I said something about our table and showed them that we were promised a seat outside by the water, all they did was offer to reseat us, but they said that it would be at least an hour. So, we settled for the poor table. The waitress dropped The food was not good. The shrimp & grits were bad, but I ate them because I was starving. Oh, and the guy who brought our food made two colossal mistakes. First, he pit his thumb in my grits when he placed my plate in front of me. Second, he dropped my roll. When I explained both to our server, she said she was sorry and didn’t offer to take my food back - just shrugged her shoulders. When I told her I needed a new roll and pointed to the roll that was still on the floor bc he dropped it, she went and got one. However, when our bill came, SHE CHARGED ME A DOLLAR for a new roll. Are you freaking kidding me?!?! My wife ordered the redfish and had to send it back because it was too spicy. Yes - my wife…also a native from NOLA…was disgusted by the over seasoned and over-spiced fish. We felt like these folks bought an old cookbook and threw some dishes together, but they didn’t have a clue how to prepare an appropriate meal from the bayou. All in all, the previous folks who gave this place good ratings have clearly never been to New Orleans (pre-Katrina). I would not eat here again, and I will be utterly surprised if this place lasts through 2023 (18 months).

    The food was good but definitely not sure about the high price point, especially for casual dining. The Firecracker Shrimp, hush puppies, Redfish Entree, and red beans and rice were delish!! I’d stay away from the frozen margarita - it had a “premixed” taste to it. Was also surprised that there weren’t many lobster dishes to choose from. A lobster Mac and Cheese would’ve made a great side.

    This is a place that we eat occasionally. In general foods good. This experience was disappointing. We ordered Coconut Shrimp & Fries (to fill our fried food hankering) very good. This time they didn't bring any sauces for the shrimp (I thought it was just an oversight). When our server returned we requested some cocktail sauce. She returned with 2 plastic containers literally with a thimble full of sauce. That lasted for about 2 shrimp. We requested 2 more cocktail sauces and asked for a full container. She informed us that they were pre-filled and would try to find some that were more full. The next batch had 2 thimbles full of sauce. At this point it was getting comical and were done this this experience (or so I thought). When our bill came, there was a separate charge for cocktail sauce (what?) Seriously, ya. Now, it's not the money that's the issue, but when you spend 29 bucks on 12 shrimp I think they can include some cocktail sauce. We live in the area full time. There's a lot of dining options here. Places that know how to treat their customers (and the locals). For us we're going to stick with places that work to earn our business. Thank goodness they didn't charge extra for the ketchup for our fries.
