Cuisine: American, Crawfish, Creole, Regional, Seafood
Rivershack Tavern is a neighborhood watering hole and eatery located adjacent to the Mississippi River (on River Road). The big "Dixie Beer" sign out front invites passersby to come in for a pitcher of local beer and boiled seafood. The neighborhood/sports/live music bar has indoor and outdoor seating. The bar inside has at least 20 beers on tap and a variety of import and domestic bottles. For food, seafood po-boys are amazing here, and if you come in-season, you can be treated to an authentic Louisiana crawfish boil. Live music is popping off at least four nights a week, with blues, classic rock and funk/jazz being the genres of choice.
