You may get a little messy but it’s well worth it. The food is delicious! You get to pick your food item, seasoning and sauce then it’s delivered to your table in a plastic bag. Your simple primal instincts kick in and you tie on...More

Our daughter really wanted to have crab legs while in DC & Hot and Juicy Crawfish is the place to go. It is a very unique and fun atmosphere. You are given a bib and plastic gloves and that is in, no silverware. The food...More

I have visited many different (but same concept) boil bag chain and stand alone seafood spots. To be exact, I've visited Hook & Reel, Chasing Tails, and others like it. I visited Hot N Juicy on a Saturday evening around 7pm, and was told there...More

We ate here last week, and, fortunately were sitting outside. However, the tables were way too close together. The wine and beer selection left something to be desired, but was OK with the food. The food sounds good, but was overspiced and served in a...More

We ate dinner there one evening, thinking it would be a reasonably priced meal (for the Woodley Park area). We ended up spending $80 with no booze on greasy, over cooked bar food that was laced with cheap spices reeking of chemicals. Never again.

Saturday night at Hot n Juicy Crawfish in Washington, DC is mad wild. A total get down and dirty eating of all types of seafood. Main problem is the location and size of restaurant. The restaurant is small. Always crowded .. No joke. 1 to...More

don't think they do and as others have said the Bar area is tiny. overall it's a small restaurant and it's the kind of place that people linger.
