Love this place. Food is always great. Be prepared to wait at times and they may occasionally close while owners vacation. But if you're not in a hurry and love a laid back pub atmosphere it's a great place with above average pub fare. Great place!

Kitchen was slow. Salad came before the appetizer of blackened gator. Gator was way over done. It should be a little chewy, but not rubbery. This gator was almost not edible. Smokehouse pizza was ok, but not great. It tasted like the chicken was the frozen already cooked fajita meat. The lowlight was the fried shrimp dinner that never came.... More

Had a really good experience here. They were busy, so it took a bit for the food to come out, but our waitress made sure we were well attended. The food was really good and the price was good too. It wasn't too loud, which is good. My friends and I were able to have a good conversation without having... More

Server walked up to the table and asked if everything was ok. We reminded her about drinks and still waited quite a while. When she brought them she didnt know which drinks... More

I love the Pioneer Pub. I've eaten and had drinks here since it opened. The food is among the best in Natchitoches and the variety is great. You can't go wrong with the spinach wrap or Wookie. The beer selection is great, but it seems at times you've got to go back and forth with the bartender to find a... More

The hotel we were staying at recommended other restaurants in town, but we found this one while wandering through the historic downtown area. So glad we tried it! Best meat pies in town! While we were there, we sampled meat pies from three restaurants and the pub has them all beat, hands down. Comfortable atmosphere, ice cold beer and fantastic... More

Service was quick and the food was really delicious and huge serving. I got the chicken feta wrap and had more than enough leftover for lunch the next day and it was just as good then too.

The pizza, the burgers, all of it is so delicious. Music on the weekends. Kitchen closes like a 8or9 but party continues. Local hangout loved by many.

We arrived in town on a Sunday evening and inquired where we could go to eat. Pioneer Pub we were told. So happy we went, very casual pub atmosphere but still OK for a ten year old to be around. Food and service terrific. Highly recommend!
