Fancy NOLA cuisine for Marksville

The food is absolutely amazing at Brown Bag! Portions are small especially for prices but quality makes it worth it! Trent is a very talented chef! Supper menu changes weekly however just about everything on lunch menu is good!!

Found this place a couple years ago. Great food and staff! Never disappointed when I eat here. If I can find anything wrong , they could give a little more pieces on the appetizers.

Discovered by accident traveling across Louisiana. My wife and I had lunch and it was superb. We are already making plans to come again and we live over two hours away!! Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The atmosphere is quaint and unexpected. Menu selection is five star cuisine

We visit here in moderation, so as not to get too spoilled.The connoisseur that I am, this place serves up food that I can truly say " I could NOT have done this better at home". It's hard to find for the out-of-towner, and very small, but don't be fooled. The menu changes from time to time to keep up... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant for our anniversary meal on a Saturday pm. Small restaurant but service great and food wonderful. Pricey but it is worth it. Don't forget to try Dessert. Coffee fresh and strong. Beer is cold. We will be going again.

It's been a bit since I've written a review here so needed to give them a pat on the back! Had the stuffed crab and shrimp avocado and my husband had the chicken salad sandwich with hummus for lunch. Delish!!! Trent and his staff are so very talented. Always a pleasure :)

Celebrated 2 birthdays with a group on friends prior to a concert. What a great restaurant! Great food-shared the shrimp and grits and soft shell crab taco entrees with my husband because neither of us could decide. Both were fantastic. Everyone enjoyed their meal and cocktails. We will definitely go back.

I wish I were not one and a half hour away to dine there again sooner than later. I bet one cannot go wrong with anything on the menu which stays fresh with new concoctions.

Went with a group of friends for lunch today. I had the Gulf Seafood Salad. It was wonderful. Everything our group got looked good. I think they may need to expand this place!
