Spirits is one of our favorite places to eat lunch in Alexandria. Neat atmosphere, great staff, and the food is always spot-on!

Worth venturing off I-49. The Knob Creek burger was all that it promised. The spicy chipotle mayo with roasted jalapenos made this burger a hit!!! The sweet potato fries were yummy also. Nice family atmosphere. Staff was very curious as well.

As first timers there, we were very impressed with the atmosphere, great food and service and enjoyed the solo jazz guitarist. However, it was noisy due to the building design. Insulation would be very helpful. Could be very noisy when a band plays.

Spirits is not your average restaurant. Since opening in the Garden District on the corner of Texas Avenue and Jackson Street in 1967, it has evolved into an Alexandria institution, a place where you can enjoy great food, great service and great live music in Central Louisiana. Always fresh and unique, our menu features fresh gulf seafood, burgers, poboys, pasta dishes and our famous Spirits salads. Spirits also has an extensive selection of domestic and imported beers in bottles and draft, a diverse wine list and a fully stocked bar for your favorite cocktail. Featuring free live music every Wednesday, we take pride in showcasing Central Louisiana's local musicians. Spirits also books national touring bands on Friday and Saturday nights. Check our calendar regularly as shows are added throughout the month. And Spirits offers a FULL catering menu. No event is too large, and we offer a plate lunch menu as well. Spirits Food & Friends is YOUR restaurant and your place between work and home. So come in, eat, drink and experience what we have to offer
