Hubby and I drove all the way from Tennessee to eat at Hawke's and we were not disappointed. He had the 5 pounder and I had the 3. Big, clean crawfish. Best we've ever had. Friendly, helpful staff. Middle of nowhere but worth it!!

Had dinner here in April 2016 during a Casino run ( over from Houston). We had a little of everything they had to offer, to include the bread pudding. It was the best, can't recommend it enough. You owe to yourself to make the trip.

If you love crawfish, this is your spot. The crawfish are large, clean and yummy. The service was great and the atmosphere perfect for a seafood joint. Don't miss this if you're in the area during crawfish season.
