Good food with a wide variety. Service is average but the décor is extraordinary. Nice place to take the load off of your feet and just relax.

We ate here in December 2016 and went back this trip because the food was excellent. We were greeted and seated quickly by Peyton. The food was just outstanding. Peyton checked on us many times. I will definitely go back there next time in Natchitoches....More

We were looking for catfish and this place was recommended. We weren't disappointed. I had catfish and fried oysters, both very good. Wish I had some now! If you want a fancy place, keep looking. Fancy doesn't always mean better food.
