Melt in your mouth gifts from the sea. This was the beginning of a progressive dinner through Natchitoches' historic district and it started the night off right. Oysters and adult beverages.

Food was really good, service once we got it was good; but had to ask someone to take time to seat us, lots of empty tables but no hostess.

I went to this sports bar by recommondation. I can confirm this is really worth visiting and having some lunch or dinner. The staff was very friendly and supportive giving good food suggestions. I finally decided for the Blackened Alligator as a starter followed by the Garlic Pecan Shrimp Sphagetti accompanied by a local draft beer. The Alligator was well... More

I had a cup of seafood gumbo and it was so good, full of shrimp and oysters. Then I had boiled shrimp salad with roumalade dressing and the shrimp were tender and the salad was fresh and tasty. I will definitely eat here again. My waitress Lorne was very good as I never had to ask for refills or wait... More

This hole in the wall restaurant is one of the best places to grab a bite. If you love oysters and seafood in general you're going to love this place. It's a fun environment and right on the riverfront.

The service was the worst!!!! Our waitress was so not interested in serving us. The food was mediocre and the beer recommended was even worse.

Live music on the weekends. Do yourself a favor and order the appetizer Spinach and Artichoke dip. It comes with fried bowtie pasta the dip with. It's AMAZING!!!! They are also famous for their BBQ shrimp. I hear their oysters are good, but I couldn't verify that... not my thing.

We went there for an adult beverage...they were yummy! The atmosphere was like many other sports bars in various towns, but it was very casual and inviting. I did expect a larger beer selection, though. We had 4 different drinks among us and we are pleased with all of them. The drink prices weren't cheap, but the drink quality was... More
