I had never been to the new location. This restaurant is beautiful! The indoor area is fabulous and the outdoor seating for nice times of the season are wonderful. Next time I think I will request to eat in the beautiful bar area where they serve the full menu. We had 7 in our party and the service was excellent... More

This is the fancier seafood restaurant in town. There are a lot of seafood choices on the menu, including a lot of fish choices, crab, shrimp, oysters, and crawfish. They even have their own brand of seasoning salt that you can purchase and take home with you. (I did.) Service was outstanding.

The food is always excellent and perfectly cooked. It arrives at the table very hot, and it is well presented. Wait staff have always been attentive and pleasant. Decor is attractive, and it features old pictures from Abbeville and surrounding area.

My son and I went to dinner here one evening. The atmosphere is nice, and the staff was very friendly and attentive. The food wasn't as good as I expected, especially for the price.

I had the opportunity yesterday to drop in to River Front Restaurant for a quick lunch. I chose to have the Shrimp and Okra Gumbo with a side salad. It was an excellent choice as the gumbo was perfectly seasoned and served warm but not scalding hot. The only objection--which I did mention to the waitress--I had was that both... More

Just finished enjoying a new very tasty item Riverfront has added to their lunch menu: duck nachos. This very hearty serving consists of a large platter of home made very flavorful nachos with slices of delicious roasted duck breast on top and finished off with a generous dollop of sour cream. There are also small pieces of vegetable pear in... More
