We stopped on our way to Lafayette, LA for an early dinner. First I will give 5 stars for location ( in the historic district ) and friendliness of all the staff. The pub is a pub and really nice. My wife had the 1/2 order of chicken quasidillas which was enough for one person. She said they were tasty.... More

I visited solo after picking Natchitoches as an over night stop on a leisure based road trip. The girl at the front desk at the hotel where I stayed mentioned the Pioneer and after reading reviews gave it a try. Tuesday night so it was quiet for the most part. I had polite and prompt service and a nice piece... More

This is not only a pub, but a wonderful family restaurant. I eat here often, and always enjoy the food. They offer a nice variety that adults and kids will enjoy, and even have daily specials that are interesting and tasty. If you want a good restaurant with local flair, choose the Pioneer Pub.

My husband and I come here quite often! My personal favorites are the Redfish dinner, the steamed shrimp, shrimp quesadillas (half order), and their burgers. They also have different specials to try! They used their own tomatoes for the bruschetta when they had it as a special. The atmosphere is great and a great place to eat for the family.

Seasonal beers and homegrown veggies! If veggies aren't your thing, try the Wookie french fries (Brisket and cheese over french fries), burgers, pizza or the quesadillas. You can't go wrong . This place is at the North end of the street , but so worth it and the locals are friendly.

Stopped in for a late lunch while visiting Natchitoches. They have around 20 Craft Beers on tap! I asked the waitress for a recommendations. She was very willing to make suggestions and explain several brews. My Craft Beer came in a 20 oz glass and cost $4.00. It was very good. I ordered a hamburger with green salsa and also... More

Visited the pub while staying in Natchitoches Super Bowl Sunday. It is an interesting place with a colorful crowd. The food was good and the beer was cold!

Met our local friend at this classic hang out! It has a great menu and multiple beers on draft! This has been one of our favorite haunts over the years when we come in to town. It is a great atmosphere and the staff is very welcoming!!! At the end of Historic Front Street, it is a great final destination... More

We stopped in for a Saturday morning Bloody Mary before shopping. It was so good and we enjoyed our visit there so we went back on Sunday for another. The food looked good - it was - so we had dinner after our day of sightseeing. The waitress who served us was very friendly and helpful in answering questions about... More

My wife and I have lived in Natchitoches for about a year now, and this is our go-to if we want to head out for the night. Their food is always great and at a good price. They have the best tap list in town, so you can't go wrong there. And we've always had excellent service while there. It's... More
