Banquet Halls & Reception Facilities
New Roads LA
"When I visited New Roads for the first time, my wife and I thought we had gone to Heaven. The food was so amazing, we never wanted to leave, and we keep wanting to bring our kids. The view from the restaurant is spectacular and we loved eating there. The head chef at the restaurant is the owner's son, Major Morel, who is self-taught and a master grillman. In fact, he took us for a tour of the restaurant when we first arrived and my wife and I had drinks at the bar before sitting for dinner. The daily specials are outstanding and are often hand written and created by their son, who we were very impressed with when we met him before dinner. I want you to know that they are the most loving and generous people and having dinner at their restaurant made us feel like one of the family. In fact, if you should ever stay in New Roads, they have an amazing motel called Morel's Inn on False River, and the rooms are very, very comfortable and accommodating and there is a garden courtyard just outside of every room. Amazing and comfortable and enjoyable to stay for the week and tour the town and buy antiques. The wife of the owner has a few antique shops across Southern Louisiana and she also has a handsome collections of antiques for sale in the restaurant. My wife had a blast and I couldn't get her to sit down and have her dinner. The menu diversity is excellent, from Cajun to authentic French creole cooking. Major Morel is never far from the table, constantly checking to make sure everything is going smoothly and enjoyably. They should be Zagat rated for at least 4.5 stars or more. We loved eating here. Enjoy the view! The building is right on the water and the views are amazing! - Bobby and Janice, Upstate New York"
