Their speciality is A-Bear's catfish which is lightly deep fried. I requested pan fried. And that's what I got. It was a beautiful thing. The catfish was lightly dusted with flour and it cooked up very juicy. I also had the sweet potato french fries...More

Lunch menu changes daily however this is a great place for a home cooked meal. If you stick with the lunch menu you will not go wrong. The desserts are a plus too.

Abears used to be a great place to get Red Brans and Rice with Sausage on Monday's. But, the beans were barely warm and felt and tasted as though they were right out of the can. The sausage was OK. Nothing special!!

Locals and business people eat here. Few tourists. Authentic gumbo and other Cajun dishes. Friendly wait staff. Nothing fancy. Wooden floors in old cabin-like building.

We lived right near this little place for five years before friends persuaded us to eat here. What a shame we wasted all those years of good food where everyone is made to feel part of the CAjun fun. Food is a bit pricey but...More
