Music playing in the background, a view of the lake, excellent place settings and exceptional service. And this was all before we got the food. Which was the best we have had across the board.

This is 3 restaurants in one location. Mariners, The Docks oyster bar and The Cove. Menus are similar. We ate in the Cove since we could be seated right away. Our... More

I had the center cut ribeye with a stuffed potato. The steak was very tender with wonderful flavor! Everyone in our party was very pleased with their meal. Our young server Jake said it was his first night working alone but he was very attentive and seemed experienced to me.

My wife and I went for drinks and desserts and to sit on deck on lake Sibley to watch the sunset. Great staff, excellent food. Perfect night watching sunset and lightning storm on the horizon.

The I-49 route does not have a lot of options between Alexandra and Shreveport and the options right at the exit leave a fair amount to... More

Arrived a little early but was seated immediately at our requested table. Roger was our server...absolutely a great young man and he did a fantastic job. Started with a couple of cocktails... More
