Place was a bit too full to have something to eat as the waiters were so busy they couldn't get to all of the tables. The drinks were really great and the overall vibe of the place is really nice. Can't wait to go back...and try the food next time.More

Crawdaddys offers an extensive menu with a variety of different dishes. A choice of ribs was somewhat disappointing as it was on the dry side and not properly basted. The service was however good.

Such a lovely place to visit for a chilled night out with family or friends. They have great service and yummy home style meals.

I've been twice on business trips to Pretoria and although reluctant at first as I read it was a chain, this place is top drawer. Menu is substantial, but from everything I have ordered or tasted, they know what they're doing. Staff is super friendly...and knowledgeable. Definitely recommendMore

The restaurant is very rustic and the atmosphere is awesome. The helpings is enormous so be aware of what you order. I had a starter and a main course and I had to bring a doggy bag for both.

I always enjoy the seafood items on the menu at this venue as it is in my opinion the best in Town. Fresh and my favorite meal is prawns or the prawn and crayfish combo. Very nice atmosphere in the restaurant.

Had a dinner at Crawdadys in Brooklyn, the waiter was very friendly, we have ordered calamari to start with, but when it came it was very dry (old/overcooked), the waiter dealt with it by replacing with new dish and that was absolutely spot on! We...also had some ribs and my wife had a fillet steak, the steak was very good, would recommend it, the ribs on the other hand were OK, bit dry in places. All in all, average pub food with great service.More

Yes, I need a place similar to Boston Bbq in Pretoria for a group of +- 50, people that serve good food with a nice atmosphere.

Most guesthouses offer a shuttle service. Uber is also easily available. Personally, I would spend the extra money on shuttle service or Uber instead of public transport.
