Big John's Seafood Patio

Big John's Seafood Patio Review

The menu in this barn-style eatery is a mere formality—nobody orders anything but boiled crawfish. In fact, Big John's is open only during crawfish season (roughly November through May), and hours can be sporadic based on the availability of the little crustaceans. Orders are placed by the pound (3, 5, or 10); prepare your sauces while you wait for them to be ready.
