This place is first rate in all categories: service, atmosphere and especially food. I had a blackened alligator po boy, my companion a barbecue beef sandwich, both with fries. Everything was hot, delicious, and arrived in a timely manner. Really like the decor.

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...More

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!!
