Abbeville Reviews

All Categories
They have very delicious seafood omg you have to go and eat at Shucks oysters , Riverfront, Richards Seafood. The best places to eat crawfish is Maxi Mart, Cajun Claws, Stelly Boiling Point. The things that could change are the people hanging on the corner. Don't get me wrong this place is very friendly and has a lot of respect and hospitality.
Review Abbeville
The small town convenience. Lafayette and New Iberiais within 20 minutes of Abbeville. There is a lot of shopping in Lafayette including a grocery store that originated in New Orleans. Abbeville has a super Walmart, several fitness centers, a hospital,nursing home, Lowe's and great restaurants in Downtown Abbeville.
The festivals are nice. However, there are constant crime around the city. This has always been downfall of abbeville. The festivals here consist of the cattle festival and the giant omelet festical.
