Madisonville Restaurant Opens

The old Madisonville riverfront location of the long-gone Friends Restaurant is once again busy with activity as The Anchor opened Friday to a packed house, at least as packed as social distancing rules would allow. Billed as a "casual riverfront dock dining experience and a bar," the establishment offers the following description on its website:

"Rooted in classic Louisiana cooking, The Anchor highlights the region’s oysters, shellfish and seasonal catches. Only the best meats and produce—sourced from nearby farms—are on the menu. Hand craft cocktails, house baked breads and homemade desserts round out a memorable meal.

"All about local character, The Anchor embodies a coastal lifestyle founded in gracious hospitality. Here, it’s about more than good food and good views. In addition to a fun, vibrant atmosphere, The Anchor offers an outdoor game area for all ages, live music, TVs to watch the game at the bar, and dockside boat parking for spontaneous visits or grabbing orders to go. Daytime or dinner, enjoy the Northshore’s best life at The Anchor."

Here are some photographs of the Saturday afternoon scene at The Anchor, where some of the patrons arrived by boat at the Tchefuncte River dock.
