Reviews

The restaurant had a really good atmosphere, not too bright or too dark, nice decor, and super cosy seating.

We tried the poutine, mushroom tacos, blackened prawns and also the southern fried chicken after a reccomendation from the waiter. All were good but the blackened prawns are a must-try - very well seasoned and absolutely delicious.

Service was great. Very fast and the staff were friendly. Honestly, the only negative thing I can say is that the table we had was a little small for 3 people. We ordered 4 dishes and had to rearrange the table around to fit everything but it wasn't a big problem in the end.

Overall, a really nice experience and I would recommend it.

We shared the poutine, beef ribs and cornbread between two and everything was delicious as well as super filling.

The decor and service were fantastic and we loved the popcorn on the table to nibble on with our cocktails while we waited (Mint Julips!

Delicious meal - shared the blackened prawns and cheesy crab dip to start followed by the Jambalaya, Baja Tacos, Southern Fried Chicken and the Bourbon Beef Ribs - all delicious, it doesn’t say on the menu the ribs are beef short rib - kids initially disappointed as thought getting “ribs” but they devoured it and was their favourite dish! Chicken moist and tasty too! Got dessert - a little average, cheesecake and donuts but otherwise speedy service and attentive staff!

We booked First Table and thought because we were paying half price on food, the service and/or food might not be as good as you would otherwise expect. However, we were totally wrong. The food was yummy and arrived in plenty of time for us to head out to our show, even though we dithered trying to decide what to order from the varied and lovely looking menu. Our waiter helped with suggestions and was "bang on the button". An altogether great experience that we will repeat and highly recommend to anyone else.

Miss Clawdy's is a really delightful eatery in Wynyard Quarter. We were welcomed by a friendly staff member who also waited on our table and was awesome. As a family of 4 it can be difficult picking the right spot but here it catered to us all. The food was tasty and we were still talking about it the next day.

Absolutely loved Miss Clawdy!!
The food is beautiful. The short rib and jerk chicken will absolutely blow your mind!! But the cool thing is they have items to cater for the whole family!!

What sets this place apart though is the staff. They are next level! So helpful, friendly and inviting!!

We will be back soon!

We loved the atmosphere at Miss Clawdy's. Great music and awesome decor. The service was fast and friendly and the food was great. Great menu which made it hard to choose! The only downside was that we waited a while to have our plates cleared and was never offered the opportunity to order dessert. At this point our time had elapsed for First Table so even if we wanted dessert we wouldn't have been allowed to order. This was understandable however as it was busy in the restaurant and staff were visibly rushed off their feet. Overall we were very happy with our meal at Miss Clawdy's and would definitely recommend!

Miss Clawdy's décor is warm and fitting for the Southern theme. Our waiter was attentive and friendly, and the small bowl of popcorn that appeared while I was in the bathroom was a welcoming touch. We really enjoyed the creamy shrimp and grits that had fresh cherry tomatoes stirred through, and was a very good dip for our fries. The menu has some good Kiwi and Australian beers like Panhead (on tap) and Little Creatures. I was only a bit disappointed in the fried chicken, which is a specialty of Miss Clawdy's, because it apparently has 20 spices in the mix but it tasted a bit bland and I could only detect cinnamon. In saying that though, it was well cooked and all the food came very quickly.

We have eaten here several times in the past and loved the food, so when I saw the offer on First Table, I was excited to return. However, we were disappointed this time around. The mac 'n' cheese and collard greens lacked flavour, and I felt unwell after eating the fish tacos. However, the green goddess salad was nice. For dessert, we shared the peanut butter mousse and the old fashioned doughnuts. The peanut butter mousse tasted like straight peanut butter, it even had a thick peanut butter texture, not the right texture for mousse. The doughnuts were not good either, burnt on the outside and dry on the inside.

We did not complain at the time, but when I saw the option to add a review, I thought about it more and how disappointed we were with the food overall. With that said, we liked the cozy atmosphere and friendly service. Given there are lots of amazing restaurants in Auckland, I don't think I would return - except perhaps for drinks.

Good to experience some alternative Creole dining to Orleans. The food was decent, especially the Jamaican Jerk Chicken. The desserts were ok but could do with a bit of a spruce up. Overall, a decent dining experience, had a feeling that the place is going through a change of ownership possibly.

The restaurant had a lovely ambience and such friendly staff. The food was really nice! We had the cornbread and Mac and cheese as starters which were finished very quickly and happily. The mains of jambalaya and short ribs tasted absolutely perfect. We’d 10/10 go back. Loved the service, the food, the music. Couldn’t recommend more.

We dined at Miss Clawdy Sunday evening. The service was friendly and welcoming and the food was delicious. We chose the 12 hour Bourbon Beef Ribs and the Jambalaya with Collard Greens and fries on the side - the staff advised that the sausage was missing from the Jambalaya but it tasted great none the less. The ribs were big, sticky and fell away from the bone just as advertised and the greens were neither overcooked or undercooked. We shared the Peanut Butter Mousse for desert which was a nicely deconstructed mousse. It was nice finishing touch to have the bill correctly made up and not have to remind the check out staff you had the first table discount.

I was excited when Miss Clawdy's popped up on First Table. Having dined there previously, I knew a good evening was going to be a sure thing. As usual, the food was faultless - every dish we ordered was scrumptious. I also cannot fault the service/wait staff. However I was really disappointed in the seating arrangements. Obviously if customers are getting food at half price the restaurant seats them where they want, I understand this. But despite the restaurant being almost empty, we were seated directly next to another table of two patrons who were pretty much silent and it was actually very awkward as we didn't want our own conversation overheard by the people sitting just 30 cm from us. We arrived, ate and left in 40 minutes all up because we didn't feel comfortable at all. Please at least allow some leeway with seating if you are quiet.

We had a great time at Miss Clawdys! The highlight were the fish tacos. There were plenty of staff rostered on who were happy to help- shout out to our waiter who did a great job on his first night.
One thing to note- we ordered tea at the end of the night- it was too strong. They put 3x too many tea leaves and we had to request extra hot water to weaken both our peppermint and earl grey teas.
We will be back with more people to try more things! Also please add the popcorn to the menu- we wanted more!!!

Lovely food, fantastic service & the best key lime pie I’ve tasted. The meringue was soft & creamy, the pie was sharp & sweet, but best of all... the flavour of the lime shone through. I’d recommend Miss Clawdy for your next meal.
