Looking for a crawfish boil

We will be in Montgomery Alabama in April and are looking for a place to go and eat crawfish. We wouldn't mind driving some to find a good "local" place to have some

  1. From where are you coming and how??


    1. We will be driving from Minnesota. If there any places outside of Montgomery, we would consider those also.

        The only place I know of FOR SURE. is in Leiper's Fork, Tn. It's a bit outside Nashville and on Thursday's they do boils and have a great open mic night.

        I know that's not in or around Montgomery but if you decided a stop for the night in the Nashville area is doable on a Thursday, there you go.

        Hope this is of some help to you. I too would be interested to know about boils. More in N. 'Bama though.

          There's a crawfish boil festival in Birmingham every spring

            Thanks for the info, I went and checked out the link. If I can't make it there, I am hoping my son who's based in Montgomery with Air Force can make it.

            If anyone knows any local restaurants/dives that would just have crawfish on the menu, that would be great also

              You're in luck--there's a charity "Mudbug Ball" on April 7 at Roux in Cloverdale. See you there.

              Roux also has a fried crawfish po boy year-round, and I expect both Roux and Tipping Point will have their own crawfish parties at some point this Spring. May want to check with Capitol Oyster Bar too--they've moved to a new spot overlooking the Alabama River. And you can always buy your own through Destin Connection.
