One of our favorite restaurants anywhere in the world. The food and service are always a special experience. You have to be hungry because there are so things you can't miss. We always start with the "hot shrimp" (just two lightly fried shrimp served in a small cup of remoulade that is out of this world. You will be dragging... More

We ate here upon the recommendation of a friend. We were a bit skeptical when we drove up to the building, but once inside, we were seated immediately and the waiters were excellent. They made great recommendations for appetizers and our entree and basically "fed us". We really never looked at a menu. The presentation of our flaming seafood gumbo... More

We enjoyed the live music, but the food was definitely not worth the 2+ hours we were there, let alone the bill that came with it. With all of the other options in Shreveport, I wouldn't eat here.

The service and food at this restaurant was amazing. Location is a little difficult to get to but well worth the journey. Restaurant is not much to look at from the outside but the wonderful journey begins with the very courteous valet attendant. The host was most welcoming, even though we had no reservations seating was not a problem. The... More

Here for dinner.This night they had entertainment. O.K. but a bit loud. Place was busy. Tommy waited on our table. Been there 41 years he said. Did a good job even though I could tell he was stretched thin. We had the marinated crab claws, shrimp remoulade, seafood gumbo, snapper shreve, shared several flaming desserts and adult coffee. I agree... More

Went there for my birthday. The food was great! Service was excellent! The ribeye was so tender and delicious, I was heartbroken when I ate the last bite! There are no words for the champagne sauce that was served over the snapper! So so good! The house made remoulade is to die for! Was only disappointed by the bread pudding.... More

It has been some time since I have dined here, but it has for many years been a go-to spot in Shreveport. While the crab claws and cocktails were good, the entrees were not. I had the crab au gratin, which I previously loved and devoured, but this time they did not serve anything similar to the high quality dish... More

Celebrated our 39th anniversary here tonight. Had not been in 30 years and my wife had never been. Why did I wait so long? They are famous for their marinated crab claws and with good reason...they are delicious. Had the best ribeye that I have ever had, mine included and I have been cooking them myself for 40 years or... More

One could describe Ernest as- kind of funky eccentric, while serving excellent crab claws in the bar-- the bar is well stocked, and their Wednesday bar menu is great all appetizers are 1/2 price. Food is normally always good, my trout almondine last time was a little dry. Oft times if you opt to sit intone bar, the music gets... More

This was my second visit to Ernests and I was determined to bring a friend to verify what I experienced the first time. This is truly a one of kind place. Its appearance and ambiance is dated but clean and maintained. The staff is well dressed and makes a strong attempt at ultra high end service and food. You have... More
