Great view, good food

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... read more

This restaurant by far has some of the best gumbo in the area. The restaurant is located right on the water. Casual beautiful...great steaks too!

We always share , good burgers and crab cakes. Catfish Desiard is my moms favorite. Locally owned and service is always good . We eat there about once a month.

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-

The view is gorgeous. The food is wonderful. The waterfront shrimp dish is the best. The stuffed potatoes are the best I have ever had. They handle large groups well. The staff is friendly. I love it.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend as one of the places to eat at while in Monroe. We were attending a ULM football game and it was the perfect location across the bayou from the campus. Since we were in town with the visiting team we did not know how we would be greeted at this establishment that looks... More
