Knew this was a pricey restaurant but couldn't find anything else much open. Food was delicious though, and even though I don't think it needed to be as costly as it was, I was not disappointed with my meal.

Very elegant, candlelight dinner with a beautiful view of the lake and very kind and attentive staff. Excellent salad bar, delicious food, and a good selection of wines and other choices. Very impressive place, and extremely large, can accommodate large parties easily.

One dot is for the view & the other is for the food. The 3 negative dots are for awful service. We've been here a few times and with that I'm certain they administer IQ tests to prospective employees then take the lowest performers. This time our server forgot a soup, my entree was incomplete, we had to flag her... More

Loved the location and atmosphere, it sits right on Sibley Lake. We watched the sun go down from our table, very beautiful. The food on the other hand was not good, other than the salad bar. Wouldn't go again.

One of my favorite places to eat and gather with friends for a good time. It was very busy the night we went, but, worth the wait. Great service! We go any chance we get!

Our evening started with drinks on the deck overlooking the lake. Then we moved into a table by the window to finish out the sunset. The soup of the day was very spicy. My husband's salmon was ordered medium and he said if there was a next time it would be medium rare because it was overcooked. The Salad Bar... More

When visiting Natchitoches, LA. If you are looking for a great meal over the water, try Mariners . Overall they have the best food in Natchitoches. Others have some items better, but as I said , overall this is the best. Fantastic food and good service also.

my stuffed flounder was amazing and the food presentation was perfect! Even on a very busy night. My husband's steak was over cooked and he never received his soup (so he didn't get to eat) as the wait for our food was extremely long. They are on the water which is beautiful-but going at night and sitting inside you can't... More
