GREAT FOOD and great atmosphere. LOVED THE COLE SLAW, HUSH PUPPIES AND BEANS free apps. We had alligator and frog legs app and they were amazing. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this little jewel hidden on the bayou. We WILL be back!!

The setting is nice and the service was excellent. The food was very average. The fried catfish fillets, grilled catfish, and special blackened catfish with crawfish creole were all very average. The fried whole catfish is probably the best bet.

We have been to Riverbend numerous times, and it only gets better. Fried catfish is my favorite, but they also have shrimp, gator, frog legs, steaks and burgers. The very best coleslaw you'll EVER have. Great food and great staff. You can't go wrong.

yes if it's a service dog. It is a restaurant. People eat on the patio. So acording to Texas health code it has to be no.
