Last visit we ate in the main dining area of this facility. This visit we decided to try the Bar/Lounge called the Cove. We were not disappointed. Service was top notch and the food was excellent. When you are in the mood for good food but a more laid back atmosphere the Cove is the place to go. The view... More

This place was recommended to us by a friend - we found it to be less than adequate. We arrived about 6:30 on a week night & found the place less than busy. The service was average at best. We found that all tables received bread basket but we did not, when we asked for bread we were told they... More

We usually have celebration dinners here but tonight it was a couples dinner. Barbecued Shrimp was excellent as ever and the Blackened Chicken was as well! The atmosphere, service and great food keep us coming back for more!

Our party had surf and turf, Bayou Lafourche shrimp, ribeye, and prime rib. Everything was delicious. Salad bar was well stocked with a variety of veggies, cheeses, etc. Compared to the other two nicer restaurants in Natchitoches, this is definitely my preference.

If you're a little older and like your food on the extremely bland side, boy is this the place for you. The food is extremely so-so and in no way represents the extremely high price you will pay for it. The views from the dining room are spectacular, but sadly that is the best thing about this restaurant.

Such a nice atmosphere and great food. We always have at least one meal here. So relaxing to look out over the lake and enjoy a delicious meal.

We stumbled upon this place amd were surprised how many people were there on a Thursday evening. The atmosphere was really nice. 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. From the stuffed... More

We have tried to dine here on several occasions and they were closed. They are open in the late afternoon and evenings Monday through Saturday and lunch on Sunday. 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
