Best Crawfish in Orlando....or at least near i-drive.

We'll be visiting the Hilton Grand Vacations on Arezzo Drive in Orlando and for one meal, we're hoping to get some amazing trays of crawfish, shrimp, crab etc., to go to eat in our hotel (so we can get as messy as we want and no one will judge we can shower right away after to rid the shame).

I've read so many differing opinions on the best crawfish place around....any tips on where Chowhounds prefer? We do have a car, but preferably closer to the hotel would be ideal.

Thanks in advance!

  1. I'm not sure if either has what you're looking for, but here are two ideas: Near I-Drive, a restaurant called Big Fin Seafood Kitchen specializes in, of course, seafood. It's somewhat upscale. Also not too-too far, Bar Harbor Seafood is mostly a to-go shop specializing in seafood. I'd call both to see if they have the items you want.

    1. If you are looking for some great messy seafood, you need to get away from I-drive. In Orlando there is a King Cajun Seafood restaurant that has excellent choices!


      1. This is an old thread by now, but there is a crawfish place right on Sand Lake Road's "Restaurant Row" area, very close to I-Drive: Hot N Juicy Crawfish.

        It looks very similar to the King Cajun Crawfish joint on Mills near Colonial.

        1. my favorite for shrimp crab and crawfish is LA Boiling Crab Seafood which is in the Mills 50 district area

          The closest is Hot N Juicy Crawfish though
