Yes I am proud to drive guest to the Monument Inn. Lots of history and lots of good food. Service can go either way, just be patient. Food has always been good, appetizer's are good so lean back and enjoy a real dining experience.

We know seafood in Louisiana so needed a place we could appreciate. Eight of us enjoyed everything we ate! Cody took great care of us & we left stuffed. Free cinnamon rolls were 🎉 & arrived in the bread basket. Tuna steak was a favorite.

One of my favorite local restaurants. Anytime we have company this is one of the restaurants we take them to eat. Seafood, a view of the Houston Ship Channel and the Lynchburg Ferry. Great place. Have been going here for years.

It's not too fancy, so you feel comfortable going in your jeans or shorts. The food is great: I recommend the stuffed jalapenos, the shrimp etouffee, and the crawfish bisque.

You need to get a window seat to watch the large ships come through. I always have a good meal here. Fried, grilled, or blacked seafood. The rolls are also very tasty.More
