Stopped by after a day at the motocross track. We chose to sit at the bar and eat our meal instead of waiting an hour for a table. It's Mother's Day weekend. We weren't really dressed for the restaurant but that didn't stop the servers from being nice and outgoing. They made us feel welcome. The food was very good... More

Grapevine Cafe is a hidden gem in the heart of downtown Donaldsonville. I dined there on a Friday evening enjoyed a live band playing selections ranging from jazz to Cajun music during dinner. The fried green tomatoes on the menu were delicious and the crabmeat stuffed redfish was amazing. Our party was large, and the waitstaff handled our orders with... More

The atmosphere was good. The guy was singing and playing his guitar. Good entertainment if that what you like. The people were friendly.

This was truly a wonderful restaurant. The service from the waitress Elizabeth was superb. Elizabeth was very helpful in answering questions. Food was absolutely delicious. The Crawfish Etouffee is my favorite dish. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The food and service here is fantastic. Try the eggplant with crabmeat or fried green tomatoes or anything. It's all the best.

This restaurant is unique in that the food and service are suited to our area...never a stranger and just come by for a bite type of restaurant. There are live musicians on weekends and I really enjoyed that! There are dishes for everyone! Whether you love seafood or rather brave a chicken..there is something for everyone and none will disappoint!

Our family of five enjoyed dinner at Grapevine Cafe. The food was good and the portions were very large. My husband had ordered an entree with cornbread and catfish and was looking forward to it, but the cornbread tasted like cardboard - almost as if an ingredient was missing. Having said that, my redfish entree was enormous and quite good.... More

This is the best spot to eat in Donaldsonville. Granted, there are only like three restaurants there. But this one is actually good. They have good gumbo and grilled Ahi Tuna, but honestly, I've never had anything bad from here. Grilled fish, crabcake pasta, its all good. Staff is usually very attentive, although the place can be very busy at... More

This is a quaint little restaurant in Historic Downtown Donaldsonville. We were there on a Saturday afternoon. Our appetizer was fried green tomatoes topped with crab meat. There were four tomato slices. They were served steaming hot with an amazing homemade remoulade sauce. Two of us split an entrée. It came with a large salad (served in two bowls.) We... More
