Steakhouse
OpenTable #1 booked neighborhood restaurant in New Orleans now serving Downtown Lafayette, steaks, award winning dishes, classic twists and heartwarming hospitality in a fun atmosphere. College Inn origins began in 1933, end of prohibition, the Rufin family exited bootlegging to have a go at the restaurant n bar business in Uptown New Orleans. 70 years later on Tuesday February 5, 2003, the Blancher family acquired College Inn. Appreciation for New Orleans icons sparked the interest of the Blanchers, who were already operating their own New Orleans landmark, the RocknBowl®. The Blanchers were just 2 years into their tenure at College Inn when Hurricane Katrina hit and sent them to Lafayette, to ride out the storm. Years after a miraculous and blessed comeback, that Katrina evacuation led them back to Downtown Lafayette for the expansion of RocknBowl® and College Inn to the city the Blanchers love! So join Chef Matthew Gill and the Blancher family as we create new memories for all.

What a pleasant surprise! I was expecting bar type food, but it was amazing cuisine! The summer squash dish was off the charts and the fried okra amazing. My husband had chicken cordon Bleu that was killer. We will definitely be back! Staff was super attentive and the chef was a gem.

It’s such a cool place, great vibe. It’s perfect when your going watch a band at the bowling lanes. Food is excellent.

The onion rings and the Beach trip drinks were pretty good. I would definitely eat and drink those again.

The 24oz Ribeye was the best steak we ever had. All of the sides were prepared to perfection. The Oysters Blue are also something not to be missed. Just perfection all the way around.
