We ate burgers from the van outside before joining mostly local folk drinking beer and dancing to a band playing fast zydeco and cajun music in this ramshackle bar and hall on the edge of the Atchafalaya swamp on a Sunday afternoon. Nothing like it! You have to take a track off the Henderson Levee Road over the levee to... More

Wish I could give this five stars, but, smoking inside and cat urine? smell was uncomfortable. The band was so good though that we stayed for quite a while.

I am amazed how little reviewed this great place is. It was a highlight of our trip to the South. This is a real experience. Great music in a place right out of a movie. Locals come in pickup trucks and cowboy boots dancing to first class music. Interesting to see the mixture of blacks and white.

My mom and I love zydeco and we drive down from Dallas at least twice a year to come see Geno Delafose play here. It's a really cool little hole in the wall. It's right on the levee and the scenery is really cool. It's an experience you shouldn't miss out on if you like zydeco. The cover and price... More

Our trip to the Whiskey River Landing was great fun and the "live" music was great. The dancing wasn't bad either and the drinks were a very good price.

If you are in the area and have even a passing interest in Cajun music, then a visit to the Whiskey River Landing on a Sunday afternoon is a must. The location and setting are extraordinary and the welcome we received from the regulars was wonderful. It was well worth the entrance fee of ten dollars.

Always have had a great time there however have not been there in a while and unfortunately will never go back.
