My wife and I spent the weekend in Natchitoches and decided to eat at Mama's Oyster House. Mama's was within walking distance of our hotel and located on Front Street next to a variety of shops. We started with an appetizer of Fried Alligator Tails. Very hit and miss. The flavor was good, but most of the tails were very tough to chew. We decided to share their seafood platter. The platter came with gumbo which was very good. On the platter was a variety of seafood such as fried frog legs, crawfish, shrimp, oysters, catfish, stuff crab and hush puppies. Again hit and miss. The frog legs were very good. Most of the fried seafood had no taste. For dessert we had bread pudding with rum. Very good. So you can read from this review it was average. We really wanted to like this place because it has a great atmosphere, beer selection and location.

Love this gem on front street. The oysters are phenomal and oh those onion rings. The staff is great and its located right by the shops. Just the right size for a cozy lunch or dinner. We highly recommend Mama's.

I've been here once a year for the past 4 years. It has always been so good that we never look for another restaurant, but tonight my dinner looked like it had been thrown onto the plate, the oysters were sandy, the snapper was tough and way over-seasoned, and the veggies were out of a frozen bag - barely warm. What's going on, Mama?

The food was great. The fried catfish was cooked perfectly. Crispy outside, tender inside. The staff was friendly and efficient.

Very good food for a good value. This restaurant serves a variety of meals such as crawfish etoufe' and blackened alligator. It is a good value for the price and is located on Front Street in the middle of historic Natchitioches, La.
