Cajun
Starting with a snowball stand in 1932 until today, Richard & Lori Hurst are carrying on the family tradition. From St. John Street to on the River, to nestled in the woods, now with two full service restaurants, Poor Boy’s Riverside Inn’s and Little River Inn’s seafood and steaks have remained consistently delicious for over 80 years. Richard and Lori and their loyal staff hope you taste not only delicious Cajun food, but the pride that goes into every dish! The oldest restaurant in Acadiana with a great wine and dessert selection, kid friendly and great atmosphere with a third generation husband and wife team ready to serve and where you'll always find the locals.

    We think the seafood is consistent and fresh! I grew up going to the original location on Pinhook and still enjoy going there after 60 years! Like to support local businesses!!

    It was a peaceful place. White tablecloths. Great staff and our waitress was efficient, personable, and just lovely. The food was amazing especially the lump crab steamed in butter and the crab au gratin. The sweet potato beignets were the perfect end to the meal. They were sweet, buttery and decadent. It was a lovely meal to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary.
