Crawfish Season is in Full Swing.

From late February into the early summer time, backyard bars and restaurants are abundant with specials and events revolved around a steaming bucket of mudbugs.

We are obviously all about finding the best local spot with great vibes and a killer patio to get the ultimate experience – drink specials are always an added bonus!

Check out all the places on our list this year!

Okay – if you haven’t visited any of the Creek Group locations – listen here. There’s a reason why this is first on our list.

The Creek Group is a hospitality concept devoted to creating a ‘Texas Hill Country Summer’ feeling year round. You may know them by their flagship Onion Creek location, or from Cedar Creek (Shady Acres), Canyon Creek (Memorial Park), Piggy’s (River Oaks), and Cactus Cove (Timbergrove) that followed in years to come.

They have crawfish EVERY DAY this season, with specials on drinks and more depending on location. Find the one closest to you and get your fix!

PS – bring your pup – it’s welcomed and encouraged across the Creek Group!

Acadian Coast has the ultimate outdoor evening vibe.

The crawfish specials and live music combined with awesome happy hour specials ($3 drafts and $6 rose from 3 – 6 pm Tuesday through Friday) turned a seemingly innocent weeknight outing into a late night Mardi Gras party when we went!

Be sure to also try the gumbo and the frozen hurricane (if you don’t have anywhere to be in the morning!).

Kirby Ice House

Upper Kirby + Memorial City

With an expansive backyard (touting multiple TVs and corn hole sets) and like a million beers on tap, Kirby Ice House is one of those places where you go for one drink and end up there all afternoon.

They have Chasin’ Tails Crawfish Truck bringing the boil to you on site every weekend during crawfish season!



SOO we haven’t been here yet, but the Pizza and ($3 per pound!) crawfish combo at Parma has us intrigued. They are located at the old Barry’s Pizza location (RIP) and have all sorts of drink specials . 

Has anyone tried this spot out yet? Let us know and give us the details!

BB's Tex-Orleans

Multiple Locations

You really can’t have a crawfish list without BB’s. They have a menu just for crawfish with tons of unique seasonings and add-ons. You can include snow crab clusters, corn, potatoes, and multiple types of sausage with your order. Every location promises high-quality and a great atmosphere – there’s really no way to go wrong.

And don’t forget the drinks! Our top beverage choice is an Abitarita – you know, one of those obnoxious goblet-sized margaritas topped with an Abita Haze turned upside down!
