Since February 14, 1997 when Don, Sam and Clay Weems decided to “cast aside the frying pan” and open Waterfront Grill, they have been serving up quality seafood and steaks that are grilled, baked or sautéed to perfection!
The Waterfront Grill provides relaxing view of the tranquil Bayou DeSiard. You will find plenty of sports memorabilia in the restaurant. ULM is located just across the bayou.
Starting with appetizers, patrons are mostly drawn to the famous “Oysters Weemo” but on our adventure we decided to try the Barbeque Shrimp. We do believe it has now moved into the number 1 spot! It is perfectly spicy and with each bite you can’t wait until the next one. It comes with crunchy garlic bread that is perfect for soaking up the delicious sauce. The portion size is generous enough for two to share.
For entrees, we chose the 6 oz. filet with a stuffed potato and the famous Catfish DeSiard. The filet was cooked to order and was tender and juicy.
The Catfish DeSiard was 3 baked catfish filets piled high with seasoned bread crumbs, green onions, parmesan cheese, mushrooms and shrimp.
An outing at Waterfront Grill is not complete without one of their wonderful desserts. The White Chocolate Bread Pudding is the way to finish the meal. It is warm and creamy and well, what else can we say…You gotta try it!
The service is always superb, the portions generous, you can ask for lunch-size portions if you would like. Daily lunch specials are available as well as ordering off menu. Nightly specials are offered too. Waterfront Grill is open Monday-Thursday: 11am-9pm, Friday and Saturday: 11am-10pm.
