Louisiana Crawfish (ex-Tempest Lounge)

LotusRapper Jun 15, 2012 10:04 PM

The spot previously occupied by The Tempest Lounge (Main @ Broadway) is now vacant, with new banner sign outside that says coming soon, Louisiana Crawfish. Anyone know the tidbits behind this one ?

    Tried cray out today, the food us utter c***. they have no idea have to cook, not to mention cajun food... the only thing thats good is that they have beer. I am a big crayfish fan and am a regular customer at hot n juicy in vegas, but this place sucks in comparison! Im cutting cray the slack cuz they've only been open a few days, but am seriously disappointed. crawfish king is 1000% better I was hoping that cray would be better so that I wouldn't have to drive to richmond for my crayfish fix.

      Well that's bad news, considering Crawfish King is in the dumpers right now. Any idea who's behind this operation ?

              Nah, take a look at their dessert section.

              "root bear"

              .... methinks the site needs a speel cheeker!

              but hey, if the food is good then to heck with the spelling police!
