Great food from a local favorite!

While visiting Monroe for a recent wedding we made a stop at the Waterfront Grill. Service was excellent and the food was very good as well. Would go to this restaurant again if in the area.

If you want grilled fish, this is the place to go. The shrimp rakee is also very good. The best is the catfish desiard. The portion are enough and if you come out of there hungry, then it's your fault.

Only thing is it's a little pricey but still I felt we got a very good value. Everything we had was really good. Not the best mean I ever had but good food, good service, good view of the water and this makes a really good overall experience. There are options in Monroe but this has to be one of... More

The restaurant is quaint, the setting is lovely. The restaurant is overlooking the bayou what a nice view for a relaxing meal. Anything grilled was well worth ordering. The staff was attentive and nice. We did not order any steaks, but the table next to us did and they all were quite satisfied.

Overlooking Bayou DeSiard, the Waterfront Grill is a really good restaurant in Monroe. Their steaks are some of the best in town as are the pork chops. If you are looking for fried foods, you won't find it here-everything is grilled to perfection!

Nice view of the bayou. While salad was not special the BBQ shrimp were great and the stuffed potato was a nice complement. Cold glass for cold beer and it was a pleasant dinner.

Situated on the water, this restaurant is a local favorite. Design is very quaint but clean. Food is good, but average for it's genre (to me). I've eaten here a few times and always enjoyed my experience.

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
