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

Good place for a business meal in an informal setting. Nice view of the water from most tables with a very relaxing view of the waves across the water. The food was very tasty and well prepared. I had a dish with shrimp, mushrooms and green onions sauteed in butter and served over angel hair pasta. The grilled asparagus was... More

Waterfront Grill is an excellent choice for a nice meal. The price, I think, is comparable to a good steakhouse- most entrees cost in the mid-teens to $20s. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because our grilled asparagus was rather dry and tough, and the bread was also a little tough. My filet was EXCELLENT- one of... More

We've been to Waterfront Grill several times and are never disappointed. Great food, great atmosphere and great customer service. Love feeding turtles and sitting by water. By far best place in Monroe!
