Food is OK. They are overpriced to the point I don't see how they have been in business this long. I guess it's us local folks that just don't want to go into town.

My husband and I went Friday night to have a bite as we were both too tired to cook. I had fried shrimp and my husband had the shrimp and oyster plate. Very good and the service was great.

Waiter was really nice & food was delicious! Love the onion rings with the Cajun ketchup! Coconut cake is incredible! I got fish sandwich & fries & it was really good! It is clean & we just love eating there when we come to town.

Came here for lunch last Friday, after begging my hubby to take me. He didn't want to go because of all the bad reviews about the owner. It had been 2 years since I have been here and back then the shrimp was awesome. I...More

The food at the Cheniere Shack is outstanding. I've only eaten lunch here but I've ordered a lot of things off the menu or the normal lunch special. The service is lacking and there never seems to be the same people that waited on you...More

Did this used to be called Cheniere Inn (pronounced Shinnie Inn) on old Highway 80 between West Monroe & Ruston?
