This dish is awesome and one I get most times I go. It is not inexpensive though. You are paying for the fact that it is a small business with a great bayou view. Wonderful atmosphere for out of town guest too that may be here on business.

Waterfront Grill is located on Bayou DeSaird. Wonderful place to eat with an equally wonderful view. Waterfront is known for NOT frying anything. The staff is always pleasant, the service is efficient and quick and the food is always good. My last trip was for lunch during the week and I tried the BBQ Shrimp, sweet potato and salad. The...

My family and I ate here for dinner. It was a warm evening and ate inside although seats outside would give a great review of the bayou. The place was packed on Friday night. It offers valet parking as well. We had shrimp, catfish and salads. The service was average since it was very busy. Food tasted very good. No... More

Recently my wife and I re-visited the Waterfront Grill for our fourth or fifth time. The views of Bayou DeSiard are as awesome as ever. Crammed up right next to the waterway and big picture windows that reveal its splendor, you feel the peacefulness and serenity of the slow moving bayou as you dine. I have a favorite meal I... More

The server is so friendly, he must have came back four or five times to our table. Our servers name was Adrian. The food was served as should be. The food was hot, you can tell it was cooked to order, not setting under a heat lamp. The crab cakes were out of this world. Nothing is fried, everything is... More

This is a great place to eat for local flavor. The selling point is nothing is fried (baked, grilled, etc....but no fried foods). Situated on the bayou, you can watch the water or at during season, watch the ULM ski team practice on the bayou. The food is consistently good with good portion sizes. It is a popular place at...

Hit this on a road trip, with the drive off the freeway. Awesome location on the bayou, the deck overlooking the water is teeming with turtles waiting to be fed. Try the red beans or gumbo and you won't be disappointed. Only downside was the waitress being a bit cold and inattentive it the other waitstaff were awesome and add... More

The gumbo has no color or flavor!!! The BBQ shrimp is $20 for nasty nasty shrimp, the BBQ has a very gross taste! The baked potato taste like frozen from the grocery store. The salad was small....horrible horrible horrible!!!!
