My husband and I wanted to get out of town for a date-night dinner, and lucky for us the Grapevine Cafe was where we ended up. Delicious meal and attentive service. There was live music that helped set the mood. My husband ordered the filet and said it's one of the best he's ever had. I had the grilled red... More

Went here with 6 kids and 5 adults for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. The place was packed (good sign) but we got a table quickly. Adults loved the portobello mushroom crab and shrimp. Crab cakes were huge, flaky and well seasoned. Kids were happy with fresh squeezed lemonade and grilled chicken or fried chicken fingers.

Best crawfish bisque I've had in a restaurant! Wonderful & creative cornbread combo with crawfish étouffée. Delicious crab cakes & fried shrimp. The portions are generous & the staff very nice.

Great food with a heavy emphasis on seafood (crawfish, shrimp, crab, and fish). They also serve steak, pasta, and salad. This is the best restaurant between Baton Rouge and Thibodaux. Would highly recommend.

My husband and I had the pleasure of having lunch in this great restaurant. Every thing on the menu looked so delicious that we ordered several items and shared. One thing was better than the next with our favorite being the Crawfish Bisque. It was the best that we had eaten, EVER...a very generous portion filled with stuffed heads and... More

We came to Grapevine Cafe after driving for hours without finding a decent place to eat. We were said it was the only open restaurant in town and we frankly did not expect much. My God the place was wonderful. My best culinary experience in Louisiana and maybe even in the whole US I have had so far. There was... More

Love this restaurant! Staff is exceptionally friendly. I was so full after ordering appetizers and entrees but the waiter wouldn't let me leave without giving me a free sample of the bread pudding. The bread pudding is the best I have ever had and Louisiana is full of restaurants that offer great bread pudding. My next visit I will definitely... More
