We were very excited to try this place out based on the reviews. The atmosphere is great and the beer was cold. My son and I got a hamburger and my wife got a BLT. The hamburger itself was very good, the bun was toasted a little too long. My wife had to ask for un-toasted bread to be able... More

We have eaten at Pioneer Pub twice in the past two weeks. My wife judges good restaurants based on the quality of their Gumbo. She loved the gumbo at Pioneer Pub. My judge of a good pub is the burger. This pub has a huge burger that taste great and the homemade fries are just like mom's. Next time you... More

Wife and I went on Sunday night, last Sunday in 2015. We had two Blue Moons, on tap and a pepperoni pizza. Pizza was great! Crispy on the bottom crust, homemade sauce that seemed to have a very slight touch of sweetness, which perfectly balanced the spicy pepperoni, and the extra cheese we always add! Great atmosphere. REALLY great, friendly... More

Stopped by on our way to New Orleans. Pub style sports bar located right across from the river. Parking is iffy and you may have to walk a bit. We were hoping to get some good Cajun cooking. Order gator bites, frog legs, catfish, etc. Everything was bland, dry, tough. Just all around not good, and was most likely frozen.... More

Stopped here for lunch on our first day in Natchitohes. Friendly service and good food. Wife had a BLT and I had the shrimp po boy. You can't screw up a BLT, but my shrimp po boy was served dry with no Roumalade! What's with that? Anyway. They had some good local craft beers and we were happy.

We were in town for a few hours and decided that we needed to eat before we headed home. We wanted good food but we weren't looking for a fancy upscale restaurant since we had been riding bikes. So, we chose Pioneer Pub based on the reviews. Our waitress was exceptional, friendly, pleasant and attentive! Our food arrived quickly. It... More

Our first trip to Natchitochoches and we decided to catch lunch here. It's location is great as we explored the shops of Main St. There were four of us, so we enjoyed an assortment of menu items. Due to the rainy weather, there were no crowds so seating and service was quick and easy. This restaurant has a friendly atmosphere... More

Natchitoches classic meat pie and beer for under $5.00. Fun place to visit near the river park. Friendly service and fast if you don't have a huge group.

Very loud, took us about 15 minutes to find someone to wait on us and the bathroom was filthy. My catfish was good but my husband ordered potato skins with beans that was disgusting.
