Not a "fancy" touristy place. But good food. My wife and I always enjoy the fried green beans for an appetizer. Their fried and boiled shrimp is always good too. Sometimes there is a longer than expected wait for your food, but for the most part a great place to enjoy a quiet meal My only complaint is that smokers... More

Cane River is not in the touristy strip along the river and draws a more local crowd. There's a big patio overlooking the river. Service is friendly and efficient. I had the alligator salad. My first alligator. It didn't taste like chicken. The cooks really know their business. Good bread pudding for dessert.

Took family that was visiting here to try some local food. The food was incredible. We had a good variety of food that had amazing flavor. The service wasn't the best but we had everything we needed. I will definitely go back!!

Stopped on our way out of town. We were able to sit outside over the river(nice view). The food was very good, I would go back next time I'm in town worth the short drive out of the main part of town.l

A table for 4 having lunch around 12:30. We waited for more than an hour to get our food. I can't complain about the food it was good, just for the time it took to get it to the table.

Second trip here, visiting family stationed at Fort Polk. Appetizers where good and delivered promptly, fried gator and stuffed fries, so very good. That's where the good stopped, main meal didn't arrive for an hour and with four little children at the table, it was rough. I had the gumbo which was just ok. Entire meal for for adults and...

We're so sorry your entire visit did not live up to the impression you got from the appetizers, John. A wait like this is incredibly unusual, and we will look into what exactly was going on that would have caused this. We hope to welcome you back for the prompt, delicious meal you enjoyed from us your first visit. Best,... More

Love this place- we eat there every time we are in Natchitoches. Has a large covered back porch overlooking Cane River. My favorite thing is the pulled pork but they have steaks and even PO-boys.

Since the weather was pretty, a friend and I from work decided to go to the Can River Bar and Grill to sit outside on our lunch break. We both had to call in to work and take leave time for missed hours at work because of their egregiously bad service. We waited 20 minutes for a waitress and then... More

I've been to Cane River Bar and Grill several times since it opened a few years ago. The majority of the time, service is around average for this area and the food is pretty great on the best days. My favorite dishes are the catfish po'boys, the BBQ brisket potato, and the muff-a-lotta. The fried green beans, brocoli and grape... More
