Dear Valued Partners, Residents, and Visitors:

As we work diligently to bring our communications back online, please be patient and rest assured that our commitment to our parish and to you is unwavering.


Fresh, Boiled Crawfish

Best of the Boil!
Hot seasoned Crawfish

We are very proud of our food in Jefferson Parish and love to share it with the world! Crawfish season is taken very seriously in Louisiana and Jefferson Parish is no exception!  Generally crawfish season in Louisiana is March through May/June.  Many seafood-serving restaurants offer fresh boiled crawfish weekly, if not daily, as part of the spring menu.  Deanie’s was the first seafood market to open its doors in the quaint fishing village of Bucktown over 40 years ago and its hot boiled crawfish remains a local favorite.  Annually in April Deanie's Bucktown hosts the Pinch-a-Palooza festival with crawfish as the main attractions! (more on that in our event calendar).  Other local favorites are Smitty's Seafood & Harbor Seafood Restaurants in Kenner, and Seithers Restaurant and Kelley's Village Inn Restaurant in Harahan/River Ridge.
