The cabin structure is very interesting, and there is lots to see. The food was okay, but could have used some more spice. If you are nearby, then stop in.

Have never been disappointed when visiting The Cabin. Food is very good, reasonable and just love the atmosphere . Where else would you enter the restrooms through a cistern! Enjoy looking at the novelty antique farm implements and unusual art.

On our last girls trip, we stopped here between Plantation tours. We each had something different & were all happy! Dessert was great, too! Our waitress was very personable!

After touring Houmas Plantation, we stopped here for lunch. It's a little odd trying to figure out how to pull into this corner restaurant, which only has access from one road. And then once we were parked, we couldn't find the front door. The food,...More
