My husband and I visited Pioneer Pub for an afternoon drink before an event in Natchitoches. The pub was a fun local hangout. They had a great selection of beer along with some fantastic cocktails. We did not eat, but the food looked good. The wait staff was very friendly and willing to serve all of our needs to make... More

Wife and I arrived late in day. Wanted something good to eat at reasonable price without needing to dress up. Nice place. Casual. We had a burger and grilled chicken. Both very good. Service very good. You could brings kids here and not worry.

Was turned on to the Pioneer Pub by a local businessperson, the atmosphere is typical "pub" in a college town, but the food and service are a cut-above. Much of their cuisine is based on food out of their own garden, and the mainstays are worth repeat visits. Great service, great food, reasonable prices - all set in a wonderful,... More

We stopped on our way to Lafayette, LA for an early dinner. First I will give 5 stars for location ( in the historic district ) and friendliness of all the staff. The pub is a pub and really nice. My wife had the 1/2 order of chicken quasidillas which was enough for one person. She said they were tasty.... More

I visited solo after picking Natchitoches as an over night stop on a leisure based road trip. The girl at the front desk at the hotel where I stayed mentioned the Pioneer and after reading reviews gave it a try. Tuesday night so it was quiet for the most part. I had polite and prompt service and a nice piece... More

This is not only a pub, but a wonderful family restaurant. I eat here often, and always enjoy the food. They offer a nice variety that adults and kids will enjoy, and even have daily specials that are interesting and tasty. If you want a good restaurant with local flair, choose the Pioneer Pub.

My husband and I come here quite often! My personal favorites are the Redfish dinner, the steamed shrimp, shrimp quesadillas (half order), and their burgers. They also have different specials to try! They used their own tomatoes for the bruschetta when they had it as a special. The atmosphere is great and a great place to eat for the family.

Seasonal beers and homegrown veggies! If veggies aren't your thing, try the Wookie french fries (Brisket and cheese over french fries), burgers, pizza or the quesadillas. You can't go wrong . This place is at the North end of the street , but so worth it and the locals are friendly.
