The setting and building are beautiful. There was a huge sports crowd and the porch overlooks a lovely view of a river. The food was disappointing.

My husband and I and our two friends drove over to the area to check out the local breweries. On the morning we were to leave we decided to eat here. My friend had eaten at the Baton Rouge location and she really raved about it. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious as were the bloody Mary's and... More

This place has an awesome menu and atmosphere. The service is great and each time I ate here the food was spot on! I hope to get an visit this place again sometime soon. Oh and the beer selection is crazy awesome!

We stopped in for drinks and light bites after having dinner elsewhere. The food was less than stellar. The bar however was very nice. The bottle and tap selection was expansive. We may stop in for drinks again but not roll in here on am empty stomach.

I'd heard the burgers were really good, but mine was quite dry. The menu is small. It's a cute restaurant and was packed the Saturday I went. The service and food were VERY slow, maybe it was because they were so busy. Think I'll try it again during the week.

We are not beer drinkers, but we still decided to give this restaurant a try, and we're glad we did. I had the boudin balls and the black and bleu burger, and my partner had the raw oysters and a half-pound burger. The boudin was excellent, and my burger was beautifully seasoned and juicy. My partner was happy with her... More

I first saw the Chimes while kayaking on the Bayou behind the restaurant. There are boardwalks to the bayou from the back of the restaurant and outside dining as well. The air condition is wonderful inside. The views are very natural. The restaurant is always buzzing and there is always a line waiting for a table. Call ahead for reservations... More

Met my friends here. The service was awesome. We all had shrimp po'boys and they were GREAT (lots of shrimp & fries). We were allowed to sit there for two hours to visit. I LOVED THIS PLACE. The atmosphere was wonderful.

This was a nice spot for lunch. We sat on the deck overlooking the river with a boardwalk and goats. I was content just to sit. The food was ok, I was starting to get overloaded on Cajun, so I didn't eat much. But my boyfriend was happy with his crawfish ettouffe and rice.

Thank turtleprz
