Having eaten here in the past we were excited about eating during a recent trip to Natchitoches. Apparently ownership has changed and the quality left with the previous owner. Our food came out and was so cold it seemed to come out of the refrigerator. It was truly impossible to eat, corn on the cob cold to the touch along with potatoes. We asked if they could microwave our plates. The hostess said it was unacceptable and she was going to have the manager come by our table. The manager never came by and the bill included an 18% tip. $150 for food straight from refrigeration and then microwaved. Very disappointing, would suggest people stay clear.

We had a very enjoyable dinner. Our waitress was very helpful since it was our first visit. The red snapper was delicious. We also had the jumbo shrimp which we liked also. Great location. Walking distance from our bed and breakfast. Would definitely go again.

Friendly waitstaff, but no place to wait for a table except for the bar. Food was average and overpriced. We live on the Gulf Coast, and we know our Cajun seafood. This didn’t live up to our expectations.

Great location for the historic downtown area. Very friendly staff. Food was good, but not remarkable.

A must for us. Oysters on the half shell no questions asked. I thought they were awesome. My husband said a couple of his were gritty but mine were great. We also had a cup of crawfish ettouffe. Very busy but our wait time was quick.
