If you're in Natchitoches [if you've never been here, you won't know how to pronounce the name, but you will have fun learning how], stop by the Mariner for good food and the best view in town. It's located on Sibley Lake, and the restaurant has large glass windows to take advantage of the water and lovely shoreline. To go... More

Over priced, cold food and poor quality. Ordered lunch snapper. Don't know what it was, but it wasn't snapper. It was a thin filet and very dry. Ordered a cup of gumbo for a side. $7.99 for 90% rice, and 3 small shrimp. Wife ordered an oyster poboy. 5 small oysters that she combined on 1 half. It was $11.00.... More

It was a busy Friday night with a long line, but we were immediately seated at the bar and had great service. The soup of the day was corn crab soup and the salad bar was fresh and varied.

Had a dinner party at Mariner's for my daughter's graduation. Serve was great. Was seated right awayvwith a party of 15. Had called and made arrangements. I knew it was busy due to graduation. Was very blessed to have great servers. Had a A-1 experience. We definitely go back.

We too chose Mariner's for our quiet Christmas dinner together. We went early to enjoy the quieter setting and enjoy the sunset on the lake. All was great....appetizer of a dozen oysters and oyster combo for my wife, bottle of Malbec, and great setting....only ones in restaurant. Then enters 2 families with a half dozen kids and babies that had... More

Dinner reservation for two and there were so many crying babies we had to leave. Ordered drinks and an appetizer and that's about all we could take. Not a good date night atmosphere. Bad acoustics.

When I say Lake Front I mean literally on and over the Lake! Great restaurant, good service, good food, and great views of the lake during and after dining. I have never been disappointed after a meal here, whether a nice ribeye, catfish, or seafood platter. Good for couples or a family gathering. Looking forward to my next trip

Incredible experience. The service was great, and the food was excellent. Most of all, the table we sat at had an incredible view of the water and the sunset.

To write a review on an eatery is perhaps a risk. Opinions on taste, service and ambiance are subjective, to say the least. However, for my wife and I the times we have gone to the Mariner we have not been disappointed. The food was very good and the service the same. Seafood was not mushy as if suffocated with... More
