Was excited to eat here and walked in and from the first second the waiter acted like he was to busy to deal with us. Sat down and got drinks and then ordered. Got our food and our waiter didn't come back to the table at all. Food was ok quality and portions were good but not kid friendly menu.

The food and services were great. We had oysters on the half shell and gumbo. I was a little thrown off of the staff dress attire being set back into slave/servant looking dress code. Even when our check was presented to us by a white lady and the whole transaction handled by her...she never waited on us. I hope our... More

I love to come here there food is always good at lunch and dinner. I enjoy the fresh raw oysters, have always received good service but the last five vists I have had poor, slow service. I do not what is going on but when I go out to eat I do not want it to be a 3 hour... More

Yes it may need renovations, and the bathroom is one step from the parking lot, but this place knows how to do seafood. The oysters are the best around anywhere! Creamy and smooth. This past trip I had the shrimp Po Boy and it did not disappoint! Service is also excellent. Ive eaten here on trips south for 10 years.... More

Although I had heard of this place and driven by it many times on business trips I finally had a business lunch here and the food and service were quite good. Very dark inside (ok, so it is a tavern), apparently a long time Monroe watering hole. Would definitely go back.

The Mohawk has been in business for at least fifty years, maybe more. When you first walk in, you know you are welcome. To your left stand 2 or 3 men shucking fresh oysters from the Gulf. They're going to greet you with a big smile, and if the wait is long, you might enjoy a little oyster shucking contest... More

Seems like it's been there forever, but always good! Fried shrimp and shrimp delight salad are my standbys. Comfortable and casual.

A favorite hole in the wall seafood restaurant. Food is really good, especially the Shrimp Delight Salad and fried shrimp. Service can be a little on the slow side at times.

Tavern is right. This is a bar that serves food. Seafood overwhelmingly and raw bar stuff especially. I got the seasonally priced $10.99 priced Oyster Po Boy. Bread was good. Oysters were barely warm...got there at 11:10...they open at 11...oysters also tasted less oysterish and more fried corn meal/hush puppyish. Like hushpuppies with some oyster flavoring sprinkled on them. Also...onion... More
