I hear it's crawfish season and I'm looking for places to buy live crawfish!

Also, looking for places that serve good / fresh crawfish boils!

    This place......


    ....has them....just not today, sorry :-(

    I'd certainly give them a call though, maybe they're coming in soon.

      Aquavit has a "crayfish festival" each spring, if you get on their email list you'll get notified... IIR its a lunch special and crayfish-centric menu

        Crawfish season is off to a slow start. Be patient.

          This is what I would do:

          the fish stores get it shipped up from Louisiana. So why go through so many middle men, when you can get it cheaper and fresher.

            Had some delicious crawdads as a course at Le Restaurant this past weekend. BUT given the way their menu works and the, um, glitches experienced during the meal ... it might be risky.
