We ducked off in here while shopping because we had been craving some grilled oysters. We should have kept walking...

We tried two different grilled oysters. We should have just ordered them raw. Neither plate of oysters were cooked hardly at all and neither were more than just warm from being cooked. Very disappointed in these for some place that calls themselves an "Oyster House". Send someone to south La to learn how to grille oysters.

Drinks were cold and service was decent...

Our first stop in Natchitoches with fried crab fingers, cajun pasta and beer. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was wonderful. The place has a long bar and a variety of types of tables. Casual and fun.

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.
