While back in Louisiana visiting friends and family for the first time in two years my wife and I went to River Front for dinner, after being basically shut out of one of the other local Abbeville dining institutions because of the crowd. I'm glad we went to River Front. Right on the Vermillion River with great water side seating,... More

On the spur of the minute after Church, we decided to drive around looking for a place for lunch. After a few minutes, she remembered that she'd been taken to a great place in Abbeville while attending some FEMA training classes a few months ago. Upon finding the restaurant, we discovered that it was closed. Just down the block, however,... More

This restaurant is near and dear to my heart bc it is the first restaurant hubby and I went to when we moved by Abbeville. I have been a couple times since they have rebuilt the restaurant. Each time I love it. They always have the best food at the right price. My friend had the tilapia and thought it... More

Driving through the South on a Sunday makes finding a good restaurant more of a challenge. We chose to strike into the Abbeville city center in the hope of finding gold and found it at the River Front. We sat outside but dived into the main dining room when a hammerhead thunderstorm settled in over our head. Our server found... More

We had a very pleasant lunch at River Front. We were there at a quiet time and the service and food was excellent. We enjoy sea food when in Louisiana so this was very much in our plans. The setting was casual, we ate outside - right on the Bayou. As travelers from the North, this was a perfect spot... More

The restaurant suffered a very severe fire last year but is now back open and doing just as great as it was before the disaster. Had lunch there and the food is as delicious as ever. The crab cakes are excellent! The crab bisque is still the best around. And, now the best has arrived. There is now a dessert... More

Back open as I understand & seems they have not lost that good food feeling, all be it now you order inside but the meals still comes from the mobile set up on site, very good burger and the wait staff are very good. Worth a lunch break should you be in the Abbeville area. Thumbs up!

I really believe this is the most delicious meal I've EVER had!!! Since they are still rebuilding from a fire, it was a little awkward to know where to place or pick up our order, but it was definitely worth that inconvenience when I got my take-out order.

I've sent them an email asking if they are open for business since the fire but I've received no response. I'm looking a nice place to take my wife but can't get an answer back from this place.
