Huge range of all things Cajun, and we found out this place is also a locals favourite which was a good sign. Good sized meals - not too large, great service by the young staff and a nice casual atmosphere. Would definitely eat here again....More

Love this restaurant. One of the best oyster po boys I have had in a long time with really interesting thick curly fries. Portions are large and the prices are great.

We enjoy the Bloody Mary's at Mamas. The Oyster Rockafeller are the best. On Friday and Saturday night they have live bands in the Blues Room. Usually local talent but very enjoyable and fun.

This is a very casual restaurant, and that's one one reason I really liked it. The food was great. I recommend the spinach/artichoke dip for an appetizer. But really everything looked appetizing. The restaurant specializes in Louisiana seafood and it's a rare place to get...More

The "Fried Shrimp" is seasoned to perfection making this dish delicious and beautiful! My son had a dozen "Oysters" and loved them. I always visit Mama's Oyster House when in Natchitoches, and always get great seafood and great service.

In town visiting family. I ordered the fried shrimp platter, the shrimp were heavily breaded and overcooked, the hush puppies were burned and rock hard, the only good thing on the platter was the French fries which were delicious. My daughter ordered the frogs legs...More
