We were greeted upon entry, waitress immediately asked for our drink order. Waitress was nice and polite. Food preparation was a bit slow but well worth the wait. Shrimp was delicious! Hamburger steak was large and filling. Establishment was clean and pleasant. I highly recommend "The Family Grill" on Hwy 1, Simmesport, Louisiana

The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The staff was also friendly and helpful. The restaurant was clean and the surroundings pleasant. Would gladly visit this restaurant again in the future. I stop here often to eat as my parents live nearby, and have never been disappointed with the food or the service.
