7 Of Louisiana’s Best Waterfront Restaurants


108 E. Main St.
New Roads

Satterfield Motors was originally constructed in New Roads in 1917 and was the first permanent automobile dealership in Point Coupee Parish. The building is currently on the National Register of Historic Places, but nowadays, it’s known simply as Satterfield’s Restaurant.

Owner John Ewing believes dining on the water is ideal not only for a great view but because it presents an incomparable way of experiencing the changing seasons of south Louisiana.

“From the busy summer boating, YOLO boarding, and watersports, transforming to the fall with pelicans, ducks, and other waterfowl, and magnificent sunsets, there’s never a dull moment on False River,” says John.

Whether you’re having lunch or dinner, the Upper Deck restaurant is the main event at Satterfield’s, offering great selections of Creole dishes as well as seafood and steaks. John recommends starting any meal at Satterfield’s with their signature Eggplant Nelson, which features fried eggplant topped with crabmeat.

A free public boat landing allows boaters to arrive at the Landing Lounge, located on the lower level of the facility. Both levels provide indoor and outdoor seating.
