Wonderful food. I had the grilled catfish smothered in crawfish étouffée, my wife had the boiled shrimp. All was excellent, with the roasted corn side dish stealing the show. Great service, great view, great meal.

The food is great here and there are many choices to choose from. Sitting outside overlooking the Ouachita River is a very peaceful way to enjoy your lunch or dinner.

The year was 1898 when the Trappey name would elevate its presence in Louisiana history. Bernard Trappey created a hot sauce recipe that he knew would be a hot commodity, he along with 11 sons embarked on this exciting new business venture together. In 1913 Bernard - somewhat reluctantly - agreed to let a cigar salesman peddle the sacred Trappey's hot sauce. It was that key decision which propelled their business to a whole new level. The company grew over the years and is now distributed nationwide as well as abroad in Europe, Japan, South America, and Mexico. So, before you leave our restaurant, take a look at our family photos on the wall and take a walk down memory lane with us capturing several generations of Trappey's Hot Sauce!
