Crawfish in Restaurants

To separate the other thread from this one, let's focus on "restaurants only" on this one.
>Price per lb happy hour
>Price per lb normal
>Days of the week
>quality and taste
>any other relevant info
Some that come to mind:
Shoal Creek Saloon
Festivals of any kind
If you want to suggest buying live and cooking, please see the other thread.
Also pertinent to this thread is whether they 'sprinkle' the seasoning on the outside of the cooked crawfish or add it to the water that the crawfish are boiled in. This is a make or break deal for my south Louisiana palate. It should be added to the water for boiling without exception.
Sea Dragon! I have never eaten the buffet there. I hate buffets. But they have awesome food off of the menu. When crawfish is in season, they serve that, too.
Just had 4 pounds at Quality Seafood last night. $6.99/lb, a good mix of enormous (big enough to get meat out of the claws), medium and small. Seasoning boiled in, and what seasoning... fragrant, spicy...I picked a bay leaf out of one bug's claw. These were fresh and tasty. We have gone to Cypress Grill the last few years, but weren't impressed last year, so we fought traffic up to QS and agreed that it was worth every minute stuck on Mopac.
