I sat at the bar, received good service, great food suggestions & enjoyed my meal... It will be great when they move to their new location to be offering... read more

We Love! this restaurant. We live in Lafayette. Yesterday, we decided to drag my parents there (while they were in town visiting) even though they live in North Baton Rouge. My mother wasn't that excited about having to travel "all the way to Abbeville" for Sunday lunch. After we arrived, she said "oh wow! This only took 10 minutes." The... More

We decided to eat here because the menu was not just your typical LA fried seafood and we were not disappointed. I had the Crab Cake Ciabatta and it was excellent.

My husband & I decided to travel outside of our Lafayette food experiences tonight. We had the shrimp bruschetta, Crab cakes ciabatta, Shrimp tacos, & bread pudding. Everything was beyond delicious! The hospitality was amazingly family oriented yet still professional. The staff seem like they are part of one big family & I'm just a visiting guest. I cannot say... More

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
