The first evening in Natchitoches we asked our hosts for a recommendation for a restaurant and were told that Mariner's was their favorite restaurant for seafood and had great sunsets. The restaurant is located on a small peninsula out in the lake and we were seated on the west side by the window so we could see the sunsets best.... More

Mariners was once our favorite seafood restaurant in central Louisiana. This was where my wife 1st tried oysters on the 1/2 she'll, the salad bar was excellent & entrees consistently very good. While always a little pricey for the area, it boasted a very nice lake view. But that was in the past. Now, it is merely an overpriced average... More

Nice restaurant on the lake. Three separate areas to dine: Bar/Lounge, Dining Room, and casual dining room that overlooks the lake. This is quiet and romantic :) Food was very good and selection is great. Prices are very reasonable and service is very good as well. It is a 45 minute drive from Alexandria and worth it. Most important at... More

The food was very good and the salad bar, while a bit sparse, was fresh and a good temperature. On arriving at the restaurant, no one was at the host stand, Several other staff walk past without any acknowledgement of the two potential diners standing there, and three were huddled by a service window. When I (finally) approached one and... More

It was sheer luck that landed me at Mariner's- the end of a long day's driving. My luck wasn't all good- the rain was pouring down in buckets, so I couldn't take advantage of the outdoor seating and lake views. But, being that this was my first visit to Louisiana, I wanted to try something distinctly local. I went for... More

Decent food, really great service, awesome sky and water view, perhaps worth the high prices. But when you arrive a bit ahead of standard dinner time on a weeknight and the place is deadly quiet with only one other couple there and the hostess tries to slap you down at a table three feet away from the other couple so...

This was my first visit to Mariner's. I was with a girlfriend having an early dinner. We had a great table by a window that provided a fantastic view of the lake, but the sun was setting and burning through that window, and the air conditioning was insufficient. Our waitress was very friendly, but not very helpful with the menu.... More

We arrived around 7:00 p.m. on a Monday evening to find that there were few patrons. We figured it must be because it was the beginning of the work week. Yet, when we left around 8:45 p.m. most of the tables were filled. The food was excellent. The portions were so large that the three of us chose not to... More
