Description: Spirits is not your average restaurant. Since opening in the Garden District on the corner of Texas Avenue and Jackson Street in 1967, it has evolved into an Alexandria institution, a place where you can enjoy great food, great service and great live music in Central Louisiana. Always fresh and unique, our menu features fresh gulf seafood, burgers, poboys, pasta dishes and our famous Spirits salads. Spirits also has an extensive selection of domestic and imported beers in bottles and draft, a diverse wine list and a fully stocked bar for your favorite cocktail. Featuring free live music every Wednesday, we take pride in showcasing Central Louisiana's local musicians. Spirits also books national touring bands on Friday and Saturday nights. Check our calendar regularly as shows are added throughout the month. And Spirits offers a FULL catering menu. No event is too large, and we offer a plate lunch menu as well. Spirits Food & Friends is YOUR restaurant and your place between work and home. So come in, eat, drink and experience what we have to offer

Went on a Saturday with 3 friends. Great atmosphere, great food and great beer selection. We watched football and had a great time. Knob Creek burger is amazing.

The grilled chicken half pasta, half spinach, with Spirit's own "sensation" dressing is my go to dish here -- it is absolutely one of my favorite salads (and dishes) anywhere. Great atmosphere for music and many other great food options as well. Looking forward to their new place which is being built right now just a few hundred feet up Texas Avenue.
