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

Let me say that the food was very good. The staff was subpar. The busboys were talking back and forth across the room as they cleared tables. It was distracting and their conversation was not job appropriate. Our waitress seemed to forget about us several times. At a bill that was well over $100 dollars for two people (no appetizer),...

We drove through Natchitoches on our way home from Dallas. I had eaten here before, so we decided to eat a nice meal rather than grab something quick. We asked to sit outside because the weather was nice. That was perfect because we had been cooped up in a car all day. Our kids were able to walk around &... More

The food is great, but the best thing about this place is the staff. Everyone was so helpful, accommodating, and friendly. They went above and beyond with my wedding renewal ceremony on their dock. Everything was perfect!

The salad bar is really good at Mariner's. That chunk of cheese gets me every time. Everything I have ever had here was really good. Sunsets are fantastic-especially if you can get by the window!

My friends and I enjoyed a delicious seafood meal at the Mariners. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was beautiful and relaxing on the lake. I had the seafood platter and my friends had the crab cakes. The salad bar was large and had a good variety to choose from. Excellent meal!

All I have to say is they have an awesome salad bar! I had the grilled shrimp and when I got them they were already cold!! And service was extremely slow considering there were not that many in the restaurant! The location is very nice as it is located on the water! I don't think I will be back, as... More

We have eaten here before, and always go when we are in Natchitoches. It is a steak and seafood place that has great seafood. It was again. I had the Tilapia, grilled. It was wonderful. My wife had fried oysters and they were good. Service was very good.

My husband and I made reservations for dinner and were seated immediately. Our waiter (Louis?) was very nice but the service was terrible. We ordered the crab cakes for an appetizer. THEY WERE THE BEST CRAB CAKES EVER!!!! Unfortunately, that was the only positive aspect of our dinner. The salad bar was a joke...no tomatoes, onions and other normal salad... More
