Went for lunch on a Monday. Not too busy and immediately seated. Waitress was very friendly and helpful. I had chicken and sausage gumbo, excellent, and wife had chicken salad sandwich, also excellent. Prices were very reasonable and we will probably go back and eat again before we leave.

This establishment has FANTASTIC food. The Cajun Potato is GREAT. It alone is a meal. it contains a HUGE potato, lots of crawfish and a GIANT breaded shrimp with an option of one more for an upcharge. The salad is great. Staff is knowledgeable, kind, and efficient. This is not exactly a place I would take young kids into on... More

We were driving from New Orleans to Kansas and were told to stop at Merci Beaucoup Restaurant in Natchitoches, LA. It was off the main highway in the down town area. But we could tell when we got there that the locals loved it. Yet we got a table quickly and were very pleased with the food and the service.

The soup of the day was potato, and it was served nice and hot! We split the reuben sandwich and went away very contented. Servers are always friendly, and the food is consistently excellent. The locals love it obviously, and so do the visitors.

We arrived at Merci Beaucoup about 30 minute before closing, an epic race with the clock, and were warmly greeted and never rushed. The Visitors Center, about 35 miles away, had recommended this restaurant, and we were very pleased with the experience. We were only passing through Louisiana on this trip and wanted a home cooked meal with Cajun roots.... More

Ate lunch. Had a large hamburger. Delish. With fries that were excellent. Must have been the oil they were fried in. Nice helpful staff. Will go again.

Had lunch in this restaurant because has a good review. Ordered crawfish etouffe, crab cake, chicken amulet (jalapeño stuffed chicken breast) and fried oysters. Disappointed too. Frozen OLD crawfish tasted so fishy. Deep fried crab cake (never had fried crab cake) and stuffed chicken was too dried...it'd probably be better if they top with some sauce or gravy.

This restaurant is centrally located and reasonably priced. The menu is varied with a number of very healthy options for the health conscious people in your party. The seafood dishes are outstanding as are the Cajun dishes. I've been there on two occasions and have not been disappointed either time. The staff are very friendly and attentive as well.

Thank Brenda B
