Very nice location, atmosphere, service and food. The food choices we made (pot roast, beef kebab, and shrimp creole) were excellent. All three of us really enjoyed it.

Our family of 5 was in the Leesville area to hear the Centenary College Choir sing the Easter sunrise service at Hodges Gardens. What an unexpected treat to have dinner at the Booker-Lewis Restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised at the extensive menu selections. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious. Atmosphere would certainly be enjoyed by families.

Good food. Best date night you'll find in Leesville. Sadly, the service has been slow both times I've been.

The food, service, and ambiance of this restaurant were outstanding! We have lived in cities two-three times this size that haven't had a local fine dining location of this caliber. You can tell the chefs here take pride in their work. This isn't a place that puts together cookie cutter dishes. I had duck with a homemade hickory BBQ sauce that was the weekly special, and my wife had a sirloin steak with a unique Cajun dry rub. Much like the food, the service was great too. They knew the dishes, could talk wine list pairing, and was friendly while giving you your space. While this probably isn't the best place to bring your kids, at least for dinner, I think this is the best place in Leesville for date night or an adult dinner.

The variety and taste of the food were both amazing. The service was great. The most expensive place we found in the area but worth every penny. Nice atmosphere for a date or formal business meeting.
