Ate at the Pub on a Sunday while visiting Natchitoches for the weekend, before heading home. Food was pretty good - although it's not somewhere to eat if you're in a hurry. Casual and family friendly and in a great location.

Spur of the moment ride to Natchitoches. 1st ever visit and picked the pub because we like trying new places. Parking was a little issue, but learned that you find a space on Front St. and take it. The pub like many Front st. Businesses doesn't have its own parking lot. It's obvious that the banks took more than their... More

The Pioneer Pub is the "local place" for Natchitoches and it has a great flare. When going to a local pub, I want to try the local beers and flavors. I was very disappointed that the waitress did not have any knowledge of the local beers and could not even describe even in general terms. She was "saved" by a... More

Food, service and atmosphere was very good. We would go back and would recommend it to others. Went at a slow time.

We were in town the day after Christmas which was a Monday so there was less choices of places to eat. We were not starved and were looking for something to settle our stomachs before heading back to the hotel for a nights sleep. We picked some alligator bites and soup - a strange mix maybe, but it did the... More

The food was typical for a pub but menu had interesting selections. We had to seat ourselves, never acknowledged by the servers. Bartender took our order. Husband's salmon was cold because servers ignored the food in the window. Some folks just got their own if they saw it up there. Kitchen was on it but the servers are killing their... More

We seated ourselves and after 15-20 minutes of not even being acknowledged, we finally left. Weirdest thing ever.

There’s nothing special at this restaurant. It’s just pub food that you can find anywhere in the US, with a Natchitoches meat pie appetizer that looks like the ones we buy frozen at Albertson’s Supermarket. The spinach wrap was a good choice, but the French fries on all of our plates (which came out of the kitchen at 3 different... More

This is our favorite place to eat in Natchitoches. The Wookiee is delicious, as is The Blackened Red Fish Salad. I have yet to try something that wasn't good. They also have a good selection of craft beer.
