Being on a limited budget I researched before taking out of town guests there so I'd know what the prices were like. We went for lunch on Saturday and found too late that they don't have 'lunch prices' at lunch on Saturday. Fried fish was...More

We stopped in on our way through West Monroe. This was a wonderful choice for a restaurant. We ordered the Seafood Nacho Spud and the 1/2 Shrimp Poboy. My husband raves about the spud, and my poboy was very refreshing. Our children enjoyed the fried...More

Recommend a seafood platter you get a little bit of everything. Everything else was good from what I could see at the other tables.

Shrimp poboy was drenched with really bad sauce. It was really bad. It was really bad. Outdoor dining on the Ouachita River. Service was good. But that shrimp poboy was really bad. I will not return.

Trapp's Cajun & Seafood Restaurant in Monroe is an awesome local eatery. The patio area overlooks the Ouachita River. Recommend the blackened catfish topped with a crawfish etouffee. Excellent service and a big free parking lot is just across the street. Excellent house custom drinks...More

Crawfish tails and fried pickles followed by the Cajun salad with the most delicious grilled chicken and the catfish plate. Sat outside and the view was great but the flies arrived with the food and really bothered us, would sit inside if we visit again.

When we travel we like to eat at non-chain restaurants and we try to eat at places that highlight the local cuisine. Trapps fit that bill perfectly.

Everytime I eat here the food is good and so is the service. My only recommendation would be to find another location.

The year was 1898 when the Trappey name would elevate its presence in Louisiana history. Bernard Trappey created a hot sauce recipe that he knew would be a hot commodity, he along with 11 sons embarked on this exciting new business venture together. In 1913 Bernard - somewhat reluctantly - agreed to let a cigar salesman peddle the sacred Trappey's hot sauce. It was that key decision which propelled their business to a whole new level. The company grew over the years and is now distributed nationwide as well as abroad in Europe, Japan, South America, and Mexico. So, before you leave our restaurant, take a look at our family photos on the wall and take a walk down memory lane with us capturing several generations of Trappey's Hot Sauce!
