I have been here several times and never disappointed with food. Everything we had ( shrimp pasta, chicken pasta and shrimp meal ) was not good. The pasta had a sweet cinnamon taste and the shrimp had no season to taste. Whomever cooked ( Friday Jan. 12) did not do a good job.

I enjoyed the atmosphere and it was very niced on the inside. Everyone was nice and pleasant to my wifed and I. The waiter was kinda hardd to understand but he was very tentative to our needs. The food was delicious and hot to the touch, and tasted excellent. The only concern was to that we was under tghes impression that the flowers on the table was a gift but they wasnt. They cost more then our meal and my wife dont like flowers. Other then the cost of the flowers everything else was great.

I grew up in Shreveport and my father used to take the family to Earnest’s when Earnest Jr’s father was the main chef. I will tell you that Earnest’s still doesn’t miss a beat. It’s the finest! We liked it so much we are there two days in a row.

Great food, service, music, professional wait staff. Only downfall of our evening was 3or 4 little children jumping around on the dance floor while music was playing. Finally had to ask if we could have the floor so we could dance for my wife’s birthday. Just bad parenting. No faults to the restaurant.

Food was decent but overpriced. The saving grace was the entertainment and the dance floor.
