Stopped in for lunch and it was delicious. I had the crab cakes and a stuffed potato and both were great. The house vinaigrette was delicious. My husband had the gumbo and he said it was very good. He also had the waterfront shrimp over...rice and it was the best thing we had. It was a nice view to look out over the bayou. The service was attentive and efficient.More

Great gumbo but the shrimp and chicken quesadillas were to die for. Our waiter Alex was an absolute delight and gave great suggestions. The view was tranquil and beautiful. Make a reservation.

We were traveling through Monroe on a road-trip. We searched Google for places to eat and found Waterfront Grill. It did not disappoint. I had the Catfish Desiard. 5 star entree. My husband had a New Orleans shrimp entree which he loved too. Recommend this...restaurant for a delicious meal. A little pricey for lunch but we were on vacation!More

Doesn’t look like much from the outside but don’t eat that fool you, plenty of good stuff inside. Location is A1…right on the bayou. While you can say this is a “fish restaurant”….their ribeye was top notch. Great, friendly, and fast service made this a...very worthy dining experience.More

Second time at this restaurant and it just keeps getting better. The staff is very friendly and helpful, cocktails are well made and the food is outstanding. If you are traveling close to Monroe stop here. They have a great location and they support the...ULM Baseball team so there is a lot of nostalgia from sports teams on the wall. Sit outside if warm enough and see the turtles.More

One of my friends recommended this place to us. We ate there on Friday night and called them the next day for a pick up order. The staff was absolutely incredible. Our waiter name Alex treated us so good. We will be having another date...night and plan to go back. Extra plus is it accompanied me well because I have a rollator due to arthritis. The handicap access was easy to maneuver. We never knew this place existed until a member of our church informed us and surprise us with a meal due to our son passing away. It is awesome.More

I have gluten and dairy allergies, and they didn’t blink an eye. I ordered the redfish, mushrooms and onions, and a sweet potato. Everything was delish! Quick, friendly, efficient service….. we will be back when we are back through town!

Not a whole lot new I can put in this review, because the ones preceding mine tell the essentials. Family run, great homey atmosphere, super-high quality food, and excellent table service. We were here for a late dinner after 10 hours of road time. We...got right in and sat right down, despite the fact that it was still crowded at 7 or so. Charles was our waiter, and he did a great job explaining the dishes, making recommendations, and delivering the meal. Very courteous and knowledgeable. We started with a cup of gumbo, which was unique and wonderfully flavorful. I had the grilled pork chops, which were amazing, especially since I got the mushroom & onion side to pour over them (yes, there are two). My wife got the signature catfish plate; Catfish Desiard. She had never eaten catfish before, and she was blown away. Our son got a Po' Boy, which was as immense as it was good. My wife and I were going to go for the table-side Bananas Foster, but they were having trouble with the burner, so since our dinner was so good, we plan to go back on our way home and try again! So, if you love authentic Cajun food, you gotta check this place out!More

This is a must visit restaurant in Monroe. These folks are incredibly nice and the food is outstanding. Couple that with a view of the Bayou and this is easily one of our favorite places to visit. We tried catfish, shrimp, filet, red beans and...all were awesome. This is a great locally owned places that you need to put on your list.More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel clerk. It turned out to be an excellent choice. The setting is on a bayou, which made for very calm, relaxing dining. We enjoyed it so much that we ate there twice...once going east, and once returning home...to Texas. On the first stop, we ate the special fish dish that was featured in Southern Living magazine (don't recall the name). It was excellent. On the second stop we ate the pork chops with a double side of mushrooms and onions. It was one of the best meals ever. Portions are extremely generous. You won't leave hungry. Service was prompt and attentive without being over bearing.More

I dropped my son off at college and we ate at the Waterfront Grill for dinner. Wow, this was a fantastic stop to make in Monroe. We sat on the patio and watched the sunset as we enjoyed fantastic Red Fish and Pork Chops. After...dinner the two variations of bread pudding were stellar. This is a family owned business where the service was just as fantastic as the food. If you are in the area you must stop here. Bart and his team did a great job making a first impression and we will definitely be back soon. P.S. as a family owned business they are strong supporters of the University and their students. Stop by and support them knowing they give back to their community as well. A++++++More

I highly recommend checking out Waterfront Grill and sitting outside by the bayou. They have an assortment of seafood options, casual food for the picky eaters, drinks and a great view of the bayou. While I was there, we saw turtles in the water, cranes...flying by and even people water skiing. The service is terrific!More
