The food was good but had a bit to much salt. The food was cooked just right except for the salt. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed.

This was my first trip to the new location and I wasn't disappointed . From the moment I walked in I knew this would be my last visit. We were greeted and welcomed by a friendly hostess and immediately were helped to accommodate the needs of my 87 year old parents. The atmosphere is very attractive and inviting. There are... More

We were driving through the area and stopped for lunch. The tilapia for lunch was listed for $12. While the meal was excellent, we were surprised to learn that we had been charged $16 per meal. The waiter said it was $16 on Sundays. Nowhere was it listed as such. We felt like we had be taken, thus diminishing our... More

First time to the all-new Riverfront in Abbeville. What a wonderful treat! The place is beautiful, the food and service were terrific. Casual atmosphere, great bar was terrific for drinks and appetizers. We just loved the place and will be back soon! Highly recommended!

the new location is horrible. Not much comes with the food. Manager and owners are rude and call customers liars. My dad got the seafood platter and it barely came with anything on it.

River Front is new, replacing the original that burned recently. It is busy, and apparently well regarded locally. Each of our party of six was pleased with the food, although some kitchen snags slowed our service. Unfortunately, the acoustics are such that conversation was virtually impossible. Taste, not sound, should be the most memorable aspect of a meal. At River... More

Recently reopened after older location Fire. They did an outstanding job with the rebuild building is very nice inside with tastefully done exposed beams and indoor -outdoor seating options. Background music was right volume and easy listening Service was friendly and quick. Our server Tristian V did an outstanding job. PROS: food was quick-hot-very tasty. I had the Catfish Acadiana....

Had a late supper at the River Front. I had the shrimp and grits and the golfer had the half oysters-half shrimp platter. Best shrimp we've had on the Gulf coast, and the golfer said the oysters were perfect. Beautiful restaurant, deft service, and food we'd come back for--many times.
