Hubby and I shared Crab platter. Stuffed crabs (2), crab cake and crab fingers are pre-made frozen and were over cooked. Soft shell crab was decent but fried too long. Hush puppies were also over cooked. Best part of meal was sidewinder potatoes, tartar sauce and cocktail sauce. Friends rice was way undercooked. It made the ettoufee on her grilled catfish inedible. We waited 45 minutes to an hour for our food, when it arrived it was lukewarm. Our waitress checked on us often and said there was a large party next door and our ticket was next. You don't cook one ticket at a time. Avoid this place! We won't be returning

My husband and I drove from Shreveport to Mama’s Restaurant. The food was cold and wasn’t seasoned at all. I was thoroughly disappointed in the food. The taste was so bland and didn’t taste like seafood at all.

We went in for a drink and dessert. The frozen margarita was decent but plentiful. The dessert was good ok. I had Bread Pudding and it was decent but not anything special.

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.
