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.

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 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 you’re 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.

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.

Been working in Baton Rouge since May ’05 and finally got a chance to drive the 60 or so miles over here. A little out of the way but worth the trip. Had six of their regulars on tap, one of their Selects, two seasonls and a guest tap - Rogue Dead Guy Ale. Had an extensive menu with a Cajun flare. Had the chicken with fried oysters, shrimp and creamed spinach. Very good. The place reminds me a bit of "Porky’s" from the ’80s movie - but with much more flair and class. Can get very smoky.

Ive made the trip from new orleans to abita many times. They have one of the best tasting rooms ever. Theirs beers are not excellent but they are very good. I really enjoy purple haze, but its too far away from new orleans to go and drink beer.

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 don’t 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.

A short hop off of I-12, take exit 65 north about 3-4 miles. A quaint little main street town. Good selection of seasonals, surprisingly good English-style pale ales, a decent barleywine. Good chow. Abita beers are good with food. Well worth the stop, if you’re going east-west on I-10 / I-12

Set in the small town of Abita Springs, you really to have to trek to get there.
The beer is actually brewed at the brewery just down the road.
Usually about 6-8 beers available, with quality ranging from fair to very good.
The food is always great. A good place to go when in the Northshore area.
