Best American Restaurants in Monroe
I love love love local restaurants! Especially when they have wonderful scenery and live music. The outside seating with the flame tables overlooking the river was absolutely amazing! The food was great too! Pair that with the perfect live music session and awesome service and you have an awesome night under the stars. Speaking of stars I give it 5! MoreOpenTable Diner -
As a college town in northeastern Louisiana, Monroe is located on the banks of the Ouachita River and Black Bayou. Its sister city, West Monroe, is just across the river. Monroe is known for traditional Louisiana food such as mudbugs, po’boys, seafood, gumbo, catfish, and shrimp and grits. In Monroe, you'll find some of the best Cajun and Creole food around. Along the riverfront is downtown Monroe, home to the open-air River Market. Dessert beignets, a Cajun fried doughnut with powdered sugar, is a favorite. While the man who first bottled Coca-Cola did so in Monroe, today the city boasts fresh brewed and house-bottled beers. Interested in something different? Stop at the local pecan orchard and eat as many as you can pick.
