Food, service and atmosphere was very good. We would go back and would recommend it to others. Went at a slow time.

We were in town the day after Christmas which was a Monday so there was less choices of places to eat. We were not starved and were looking for something to settle our stomachs before heading back to the hotel for a nights sleep. We picked some alligator bites and soup - a strange mix maybe, but it did the... More

The food was typical for a pub but menu had interesting selections. We had to seat ourselves, never acknowledged by the servers. Bartender took our order. Husband's salmon was cold because servers ignored the food in the window. Some folks just got their own if they saw it up there. Kitchen was on it but the servers are killing their... More

We seated ourselves and after 15-20 minutes of not even being acknowledged, we finally left. Weirdest thing ever.

There’s nothing special at this restaurant. It’s just pub food that you can find anywhere in the US, with a Natchitoches meat pie appetizer that looks like the ones we buy frozen at Albertson’s Supermarket. The spinach wrap was a good choice, but the French fries on all of our plates (which came out of the kitchen at 3 different... More

This is our favorite place to eat in Natchitoches. The Wookiee is delicious, as is The Blackened Red Fish Salad. I have yet to try something that wasn't good. They also have a good selection of craft beer.

Took my visiting family here. The environment is great in this place. The food was good, nothing special though. The staff was very nice and attentive. Even though it is a pub this place is family friendly. A definite for anyone visiting town!

Food is good, drinks are satisfactory, staff is friendly. All that you can ask for in a pub. Located at the end of Front Street, but still has a nice view. Small inside, but average for the area. Has a small seating area outside as well.

The locals of Natchitoches gather here. Good choice of outstanding burgers. A good pub atmosphere. Relax and enjoy the wait; it's worth it.
