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.

I really really want to like this place. We ate at the River Front twice before the kitchen fire closed down the restaurant in the fall of 2012. It's the only up-scale restaurant option in Abbeville, other than the bar at Dupuy's. We love the location, view and decor, but both times had subpar experiences due to mediocre food and... More

This place has a warm atmostphere and very friendly workers. My with loves the corn soap there and I love the steaks.During the week they have menu specials for dinner. And the price is very reasonable. There is a bar on the other end of the restaurant where you can down a few or just relax. They have a reception... More
