Crawdaddy's in Brooklyn is definitely my favourite haunt for a relaxed lunch or dinner in Pretoria. The atmosphere is laid back, even if the place is packed, the waitrons are - all in all - reasonably efficient, the steaks are world class (good to take...More

My wife and I often visit the Crawdaddy's in Garsfontein Road in Pretoria and we have not been disappointed once. I have had some of the chicken dishes, chowders, curry dishes, pork, lamb and a variety of steak dishes. Every dish a winner. If you...More

Pretoria has its fair share of good steakhouses and Crawdaddys is definitely up there. Relaxed ambience, good for a causal business lunch or a dinner with friends. Reliable food and service. Overall I've been impressed with the steaks, not so much with their seafood.

Crawdaddy's combines good food and wine with very good service and management. Nice ambiente for a place in the city and next to a busy road. Book in advance!

I have been to Pretoria 3 times in the past 5 years. While there is not much in Pretoria (I visit on business), if you find yourself there, try Crawdaddy. Good food, generous portions, good value, friendly service, nice atmosphere. You won't go wrong.

Fair experience at Middel street venue. The staff seemed a bit under stress compared to number of tables they have to serve. Also running up and down stairs to serve pub downstairs - very difficult at times to attract service. Overall not bad experience, but...More

I have been to Crawdaddy's 5-6 times and never been disappointed. Great service and friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Very good (large) meat and my favorite butternut mash anywhere! Reasonable prices as well. Will definately be back when I get the chance.

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.
