As a warning, I had wanted to eat at the Warehouse restaurant based on a previous trip there. They are closed right now. So I hoped Waterfront would live up to my expectations. First the atmosphere. Here it is more of a relaxed environment, think more sports bar (T-shirts). Warehouse could be casual but also could be more of an... More

Had a great lunch on Saturday. The food was fantastic. Red beans and rice were perfect, we also had the tuna grilled to perfection and the shrimp poboy. Waitress was attentive and nice. We had the granddaughter with us and they took good care of her. Thanks for a nice, clean place to have a meal.

While vacationing in the area, we decided on this place for dinner on a Friday evening. The brochure recommended a reservation and we called and easily got one. First, the parking is not good. The restaurant looks like a seedy dive, but when you walk in, it is very nice. We were able to get a table overlooking the lake... More

My wife and I have lunch and dinner at the Waterfront at least once a month. The food is always great and service is outstanding. The only thing that detracts from their score is that all the surfaces are hard which makes it loud and hard to have a conversation when several people are at the table.

this is a wonderful place to gather with friends or family and share a meal. Very healthy too, as nothing is fried. Its all grilled or baked, and delicious! they can serve you on their dinner cruise along the bayou, or inside in the cozy atmosphere. Our waiter was the best! great experience!

The Waterfront Grill is one of my favorite restaurants. Their steaks and the Catfish DeSiard are awesome as well as the view of Bayou DeSiard. A great place to spend a special occasion or just a laid back evening relaxing.

Been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. Always has great service and arguably the best seafood, burger, and steak in town. Twice baked potato is wonderful. Not promoted, but the secret is getting the shrimp rhakee over the ribeye!

I recently dined there with a group of about 15. The service and food was Excellent. I had a fillet with shrimp Rohkee. The Rohkee sauce on the steak is the BOMB! Our group had. Very good dining experience.

No fried food here, but one of the best restaurants in town. Every dish is fresh and unique in its own way. Great crawfish dip appetizer, awesome shrimp rahkee, great catfish. I cannot say anything negative about this place. The service is good, the bayou view is awesome. A great place for meetings, parties, drinks. Love it.

I ordered the ribeye and after I finally was able to cut through it the flavoring was very good but it still was a a little chewy. The asparagus was really al dente and the salad you get with your meal could use a little TLC. My husband had the catfish desiard and he was pleased with his and it... More
