Wow! Best Surprise in Central Louisiana. Everything we ordered was the best anywhere in this area. Superb! Can't wait to go back. Very special evening.

We have been wanting to experience the restaurant. We have heard a lot about the chef. First off, the building is a old mill. Looks like it might collapse. We parked in grass parking lot. The interior is not what you would expect. They have modernized the interior. Not a large area for eating. Not many tables, with a very... More

We went to Janohns tonight, simply because I'd heard such good things about this restaurant and wanted to try it. Fine dining in a casual atmosphere WAY off the beaten track....you're ok dressed up or in shorts, and I like that. I absolutely love the building. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable-special thanks to Jeremy, who took very... More

Atmosphere was nice. The food was disappointing. Ribeye steak with parmesan doesn't go together. The ice cream on a board was a ripoff. Two stale waffle cones, four scoops of blue bunny and a streak of hershey for $12.

We had two people recommend driving from Natchitoches to Boyce for this restaurant (Little Eva's Pecans - great stop!) and the park ranger at Oakland Plantation. Skeptical we made the trip (30 - 40 minutes) and drove up to a middle of nowhere town with a tin roof and siding restaurant - more skeptical. What we encountered was terrific small... More

I'm in the area alot but didn't know about this place until I searched TA. It's easy to miss but worth the drive. Attentive service and great selections from steak to seafood. I will return with more guests.

Positives: -We called in a reservation, and our table was waiting for us. -The waitress was so attentive that it seemed like she was almost just waiting on us! -The food was obviously done by a professional. The negatives: - The parking is in a gravel lot, with some potholes. -There was a large group (at least 20), who were... More

Thank you for your review! Apologies about the loudness. Since we are a destination restaurant, sometimes we have to accomodate parties between 8-10 people because everyone wants to get together and come out as a group. Unfortunately, it can get a little loud. This isn't a normal experience. We want everyone to enjoy themselves as we celebrate food, and life... More

From the building to the service, everything about this place was Unique and Wonderful. The inside was quaint and romantic. We are going back this weekend,... It is worth the 2 hour dive. *****Shrimp & Crab appetizer :) ---Seafood Pasta**** Best by far!!!!!!!

Thank you for your review! The seafood pasta is a staple in Louisiana restaurants. I challenged myself to come up with the right recipe that would be a worthy reflection of the passion that we at Janohn's have for providing the best food we possibly can to our guests. It's always nice to hear from our satisfied guests. I am... More

Had heard many good things about Janohn's and was surprised when we drove up to a tin building! But don't fret! It is worth the drive and once you are inside, it's a great experience.......not that the outside is bad......just surprised. Great wine list and special cocktails.......friendly and knowledgeable staff. Started off with the skillet fondue........This can't be beat! Small... More

We had not visited Janohn's for quite a few weeks. No reason just busy... We received a message from Courtney the manager at Janohn's expressing that Chef Aaron had missed us and was sending us a special invitation to come dine. This was the first time any restaurant had ever contacted us and expressed that we had been missed. Really... More

A non-descript tin building does not do justice for the wonderful interior atmosphere of this enchanting restaurant.Greeted by the owner, cared for by the wait staff-even this single diner felt well at home. Full bar, simple wine list.And the food is heavenly. I had the oyster and crayfish appetizer-I guarantee there was not a drop left on my plate of their subtle sauce. The sea bass was also elegant.Complements to John the owner and head chef and the chef de cuisine: Aaron Atchison. Wish I traveled here more often; it would be a regular stop.
