Small place in strip mall with good food. The food has some zip to it so if you don't like spicy ask the servers first before you order your sampler or meal. My wife had the crab cake entrée and it was excellent, big crab-cake with good coleslaw. Had the Seafood pasta dish (Rotini) that was great with some heat.... More

This was my first trip to Birmingham and I wanted to experience some authentic Cajun food. Crazy Cajuns did not disappoint. The first sight upon entering the door was the huge plate of boiled crawfish on a table. I ordered the shrimp gumbo and a sample of jumbalya. Both were outstanding! My sister was with me who was not familiar... More

Shrimp, oysters, crawfish, fish served in all possible combinations. Boiled, saute, breaded in gumbo, jambalaya, platters with red rice, fries and a great selection of bottled domestic and craft beers. And I haven't even come close to giving the menu justice. Absolutely a huge collection of dishes. I must caution, however, that most selections are very spicy (well duh, it's... More

Was in town for a college visit and wanted something other than a chain restaurant, and boy did we get it. Small, packed, yet very attentive staff. I had the jambalaya and my daughter had the gumbo. Both were great with that sneaky burn that comes after you eat it. I will definitely be coming back if she goes to... More

Based on our hotel manager's recommendation (he is from Louisiana) we went to Crazy Cajun's (very close to our hotel) and all I can say is "WOW"! It's a small place in a strip mall, but the food is incredible! Based on our server's recommendation we got the shrimp platter and the shrimp and grits. Both were fantastic! Just the... More

The seafood rotini was highest recommended, and it did not disappoint. We also had a cup of Etoufee, which was pretty good also. The appetizer of Fried Green Tomatoes was disappointing. We had a great time, but it was very busy and we had to wait, though there wasn't anywhere to wait and we had to be aggressive. Overall, we... More

I love seafood and can attest that their royal reds are hands down the best shrimp I have ever had. That also have an amazing ya ya gumbo.

I love cajun food, however, this was wayyyy to spicy, i could not enjoy the crab legs, sent them back and asked them to wash the seasoning on top off, they dropped them back in the pot...still bad. Gave up and ate the garlic toast which was great. I did taste my friends fish and shrimp and it tasted good... More
