Crawfish Shack Seafood to expand

Courtesy of

Courtesy of

Crawfish Shack Seafood –until now a tiny 15 seater — will expand into the space next door in its Buford Highway mini-mall.

I got this missive from owner Hieu Pham (edited for typos):

“This Coming Saturday the 30th the new dining room at Crawfish Shack Seafood will be open. It should be able to host about 70 guest. Yes! going from about 15 to 70 is a huge number! I do hope your be able to come and check out the new dining area. Alone with the new dining area I will be adding to the Menu “Beignets and Coffee” From the very Famous Cafe Du Monde.”

The menu is very simple, but it has that “just right” quality. This is one of the rare seafood restaurants that really deserves the word “impeccable.”

Though, if I could make a suggestion, I might skip the Cafe du Monde in favor of the fresh sugar cane juice that is so great with fried seafood.

He (John) did an earlier blog post on the po boys Sean and he said they were great. Of course he (John) IS a Yankee so what does he know about po boys…………… (lol couldn’t resist that last part john :P )

Thanks for the update, I couldn’t remember the name of the place from your last blog and the so called archives are not exactly comnplete. I was also looking for the name of that place you blogged about the noodle soup (in Decatur) and couldn’t find it either.

On another note: One of the Korean places my MIL likes is called Han IL Kwan. Went there for lunch today and found it tasty. It’s on Buford Hwy just inside the perimeter. On the Right hand side if you are going north, maybe a block shy of 285.

Excellent quality food and service. My only complaint is the early closing time. People need a place to satisfy their crawfish craving that stays open later than 8:30 or 9.
