I thought about dropping this rating to a four because it is a little pricey and they don't offer draft beer, but I liked the place so much I just couldn't do it!! Appetizers and meals for everyone were great and the atmosphere was the best in the Monroe/West Monroe area. The owner was there all night and was very... More

This place was recommended to us a good local restaurant while I was in Monroe on business. The view of the bayou was beautiful. The restaurant is simple and decor to match. Staff are friendly. Ordered crawfish cheese dip to start with........there was lots of crawfish but the dip was so runny that you couldn't dip anything into it. The... More

Our server was subpar, one of the worst I have experienced in quiet some time. The grilled pork chops arrived burned, burned to the point of being ineatable. With all the other choices in town, I can't see my husband and myself returning.

Besides the nice views from the window, this place is not exceptional. It is cool in an earthy sort of way. The food was about average. It was really crowded the day we were there, and those reservations came in handy (ULM's graduation day).

Went at lunchtime, I don't work outside the home so wasn't in a rush but the food was promptly delivered. Server was very nice and attentive. It was good but not outstanding. I had the BBQ shrimp poboy and a side salad. The bayou setting is very pretty.

If you want a great grilled catfish try the catfish desiard- delicious! They are famous for this and the lunch portion is plenty! Nothing fried here but when it comes to grilling its a great choice-
