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.

Love this place. Food is always great. Be prepared to wait at times and they may occasionally close while owners vacation. But if you're not in a hurry and love a laid back pub atmosphere it's a great place with above average pub fare. Great place!

Kitchen was slow. Salad came before the appetizer of blackened gator. Gator was way over done. It should be a little chewy, but not rubbery. This gator was almost not edible. Smokehouse pizza was ok, but not great. It tasted like the chicken was the frozen already cooked fajita meat. The lowlight was the fried shrimp dinner that never came.... More

Had a really good experience here. They were busy, so it took a bit for the food to come out, but our waitress made sure we were well attended. The food was really good and the price was good too. It wasn't too loud, which is good. My friends and I were able to have a good conversation without having... More

We visited at a time that was not peak dining hours and there were a few empty tables. We ordered drinks and appetizers. Appetizers arrived, still no drinks. Server walked up to the table and asked if everything was ok. We reminded her about drinks and still waited quite a while. When she brought them she didnt know which drinks... More

I love the Pioneer Pub. I've eaten and had drinks here since it opened. The food is among the best in Natchitoches and the variety is great. You can't go wrong with the spinach wrap or Wookie. The beer selection is great, but it seems at times you've got to go back and forth with the bartender to find a... More
