Tasty, Messy, awesome

Seafood boil? Cajun style sauces in Utah? Fresh seafood in Salt Lake City? Voted Best Mess Restaurant in 2012, huh? Yes, yes, yes and yes.



Bucket O Crawfish brings together Louisiana inspired sauces with a West Coast Asian twist. The food isn’t new to Salt Lake. Mai Nguyen and her family have been catching crawfish at Strawberry Lake for over 20 years. With over 2 decades of fine-tuning the sauce, we decided to open Bucket of Crawfish in 2010. Fast forward to present and you’ve got a City Weekly’s Best Mess restaurant. We combine fresh seafood, boiled in our secret broth, and doused with our extra special sauces for your unique dining experience.



“West Valley’s Bucket O’ Crawfish—yes, that’s the real name of the restaurant—promises to be wildly popular. Why? Well, because the food is great, the funky ambiance is fun and it’s unique.” City Weekly

“For a landlocked city, there’s nothing worse than not getting a good selection of fresh seafood. That’s something you won’t ever have to worry about at Bucket O’Crawfish. Fresh seafood comes in daily to this restaurant seasoned to Cajun perfection.” — Becky McDaniel
