Reviews of Jan's River Restaurant

Jans is the best place to eat fish at. They are without any doubt 2nd to none. Furthermore , the bean soup & river steak are great. The building was transformed into a restaurant from what looked like some kind of small warehouse , as the saying goes "don'the judge a book by it'seems cover". Trust me, it is my favorite place to treat myself. BEST FOOD & SERVICE IN NORTHWEST LOUISIANA BAR NONE!!!!!!!!!!

Went to Jans for first time last night. It was packed with patrons! I ordered steak and shrimp. My husband ordered catfish. The slaw and tomatoes and beans before the meal were good. The hush puppies were too brown. My steak was cooked well done which I asked for and had a great flavor but was somewhat " fatty"... I never got the house salad that was supposed to come with my meal.
My husband really enjoyed his catfish.....overall it was good. We would probably come back

I love this place. I am not old as one person labeled it... This is the best catfish in Shreveport. If you get a chance to go there to eat don't pass it up.

Nothing Special. Typical fried catfish place. Ambiance is lacking - what can typically be referred to as an "old person's" restaurant. Menu is scant with not many options for healthy eating. The steaks are mediocre at best. If you are in the mood for fried catfish - it's ok but again nothing special. I would venture to guess if you took a look into the kitchen everything is frozen or canned.
