Nice Patio

A bar with some good food choices. Friendly staff. The patio is really nice but beware of smokers who are drinking as they can make it very unpleasant even in the middle of the day.

As a vegetarian in the South, finding a place to eat can be somewhat challenging at times. However, Sundown not only has GREAT veggie burgers, they have wonderful friend dill pickles and green beans...and many other selection that make your mouth water! Highly recommended!

Sundown is a nice place in downtown Ruston. The burgers were fresh cooked and grilled. The only issue was the wait. There were numerous girls walking around, talking to each other, and looking around, but it took almost 10 minutes for someone to take a drink order, and almost another 20 to get food, which was a burger for me...

This place has the best food. Mj burgers are to die for. Named after the owners wife. I have never had anything bad here. They have live music some weekends. You can rent the patio area for parties. The outdoor area is a neat area. Families eat here on a regular basis

The patio is perfect on a sunny day, a great pleasure to meet friends there! Good food (nothing fancy), good beer but mostly a great atmosphere!

Sundown has good food and a great atmosphere! The food is typical bar food, but they've perfected every item. Sundown is definitely one of the best spots in Ruston to relax, listen to some music and get a drink. Quite arguably the best part of Sundown is its spacious outdoor patio. I keep going back for the fun patio atmosphere... More

Our director ordered sandwiches for our lunch recently and I must say they were very good. I had roast beef and it was delish. Plan to eat there again but at the restaurant this time.

They have a small menu but the food is very good a little on the pricey side but it's a college town. Would recommend.
