First time having a meal here and we would definitely come back. Everything we ordered was delicious. Buttermilk chicken, tacos, pork belly.... it was all yum as with plenty of flavour. Thanks for a great meal!

Miss Clawdy - always busy when we've walked past. Seated at high barstools, made choices of food; we had nibbles & drinks, it was rollicking, great vibe. I have gait/walking challenges (stroke); I wear a legbrace. Beers, wine, great snacks & bigger plates, lively atmosphere,...very busy.More

Had the $40 menu and was impressed. Hubby;s pulled pork with wedges was quite a substantial portion and tasty, My jambalaya was flavorful but the spiciness overwhelmed the rest of the flavour as you ate more of it. It had 3 prawns & 3 bits...of chorizo - could have done with a little more I think. The fried doughnuts was really good - warm and looked like it was just done. The cheesecake was good but not anything different from usual. Overall was a good meal out and enjoyed the busy, loud vibe in the restaurant.More

We have eaten southern food all across the south of the USA (Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Florida) so our expectations were up there when we visited Miss Clawdy's. The venue is great, well decorated and has the right atmosphere. Only a few other diners when...we walked in through the wide open door on a cold winter evening with a good breeze coming in off the viaduct basin. Our waiter parked us at a table beside the door. Marks off straight away. We invited ourselves to move to the back. From then on her service was quick and attentive. We had the house specialty chicken, slaw and jambalaya. Food in the South of the USA is spicy but this chicken was too hot - well for our Kiwi palates anyway, something we didn't have cause to note in America. The bowl of slaw was twice the size it needed to be. It was OK - but not with the zing that Americans give slaw, The jambalaya suffered from the overuse of NZ tomatoes which are far more acidic and sharp - almost bitter - than what we enjoyed in the USA. Not a bad experience and probably a good one for others for whom the food style is new. For us the food was disappointing.More

Gorgeous wee restaurant in Wynyard Quarter. We dined here on first table. The service was nice and the lights inside were very beautiful. The food was ok.. we were disappointed.
