Very cool place. Friendly folks who know beer. Great atmosphere. Solid beer. Great food and a relaxing, but still hip and funky decor. The artwork (the walls are huge murals) was absolutely amazing, but the scenes are just of everyday life so I donít think they get the credit they deserve. Whoever the artist was....frigging incredibly skilled person.
Really enjoyed this place and the owner was a very sweet lady who was happy to chat and never stopped smiling.
Stopped in here prior to an LSU home football game. Was in town for the game, made the pilgrimmage to Abita. Glad that I did. The bar was quite empty which was a lil dissapointing but that was due to the upcoming game. With the lack of patrons, we received great service. Food was good and beer offerings even better. Tons of taps, stuff not bottled yet. Worth the drive!
I live about a mile from this place and it is one of my favorite local *restaurants* based on the tasty food alone. This is southeast Louisiana, there is no shortage of great places to eat in these parts, so for this to be a favorite truly speaks volumes! The atmosphere is that of a simple country family restaurant. Very understated but homey and welcoming. Very wide variety of food offerings ranging from steaks and burgers to Louisiana seafood dishes and classics like jambalaya. Everything on the menu is great. Oh, yes, they have beer too! You will find all the currently active Abita beers on tap. This includes the flagship beers, whatever the current seasonal is, and one or two select Abita brews that change regularly. There is always one and only one guest beer on tap. The guest beer is either a not-widely-known import or a not-widely-stocked American microbrew.
ambiance: Not a huge place. Parking in a lot across the street. Feels like a small Applebees but with beer decor. Innocuous but fun atmosphere. service: Not bad. Our server was a bit scattered but super nice, and he did a decent enough job keeping four separate checks straight. selection: Decent choice of Abita stuff on draft and in bottles. About 5 or 6 taps, about 7 or 8 bottles. Only annoyance was that the menu didnít specify what was on draft and what was in bottles, so it could be a bit of a chore to select five draft beers to make a flight. food: DELICIOUS. The chicken and sausage gumbo was some of the best cajun food I had in Louisiana, and the burger was tremendous. Fries were perfect. value: Extremely reasonable. overall: Well worth the visit. Absolutely need to go back next time Iím in town.
Visited on 2-19-2013. A clean bar and restaurant with a lot of wall decor throughout the establishment. They also have an outdoor patio area. Cameron, our server, was very, very personable as well as very knowledgeable about their beers. They offer five beers in their sampler. The beers I had were good and there were none that I disliked. They also supply their customers with an Abita Beer Guide about their beers along with a decal. I really enjoyed this visit and would revisit if in the area again.
Had lunch here with my brother and his girlfriend. Nice ambience and food I had (Gyro) was really good. Had the AndyGator (Barleywine), Turbodog (brown ale), and the Restoration Ale(golden ale). All were good. Very friendly staff.
I stopped in here with a friend one day when we were passing through in 2004. The selection was okay, as was the food. But what it lacked (only slightly) in those areas, it made up for in service. My friend and I sat at the bar to have some drinks and food, and everyone working there was great, as were the other customers around us. Another thing, if youíre coming here to taste the Abita brews, they will give you free two- to three-ounce samples. At least they did when I went there. I hope to make it back to this place one day, and if I ever pass through here again, I will.
