Stay in the grounds of a plantation mansion

The Oak Alley Plantation is a remainder of the Old South’s golden age: a stunning colonnaded mansion set in beautiful gardens edged by the Mississippi River.

Stroll through the beautiful landscaped gardens, admire the 1830’s architecture of the house and watch the Mississippi roll on by as you soak up the old-world atmosphere. With in-room dining options and a fresh country breakfast for all cottage guests, this plantation is the ideal place for those seeking an atmospheric Old South experience.

Throw your nutritional macros out the window!

San Jose Ca

On a recent visit to Oak Alley plantation my partner in crime (cousin Amanda) and I were starving! I am not in the habit of patronizing tourist restaurants in general. Often the food is terrible and expensive. Especially in Louisiana, where they take food seriously! We were not disappointed! On the contrary, we were fed well beyond our expectations. We ate in the restaurant not the cafe. And we also got there about 15 minutes before closing time. The staff graciously allowed us to be seated. Being that we were short on time, my cousin and I perused the menu very quickly. Hey, these folks want to go home on time right! Instead of an appetizer and all that, we just dug right in and ordered lunch. I ordered the Chicken, Smoked Sausage, and Andouille Gumbo. My cousin ordered the four-cheese pasta. In short, both dishes were out of this world. We were so blown away by the quality of the food and the presentation. While we waited I ordered a strawberry hard cider. I cannot remember the name of it. I do remember it was a local brewery. I would recommend it, if cider is your thing. It was a light brew, with strawberry essence. It was not sweet. If sweet is your thing, this is not for you. The restaurant is built to blend in with the Oak Alley plantation. The well-placed photos and such, all make this a very southern atmosphere. The dark flooring and the dark wood paneling added warmth to a bit of a gloomy day. My dish came as the traditional gumbo, with chicken, and andouille sausage served over rice. This was accompanied by a super fresh roll. I normally stick to a low carb diet, but I am on vacation! The roll that came with the meal was worth every macro I spent! The portions were plentiful. My cousin’s pasta was fantastic. Amanda is SUPER picky, period end of story. She was in pasta Heaven with her meal. Her dish also came with a side of either chicken or shrimp and okra gumbo, I made her order the chicken and we took it back to our Airbnb. After I quickly inhaled my dish, I went to work on Cousin Amanda’ s left over’s. I took that deelish roll that accompanied her pasta and sopped up all that cheesy goodness. Throwing my low carb livin self out the window. And it was worth it! We ended the meal with a to go bread pudding. This was equally amazing. I rewarmed it after a night of Bourbon Street adventures. The dessert was moist, full of raisin and spices. The sauce that accompanied this delight, brought the dish to a whole new level of deliciousness. The staff here, as with pretty much all the places we went to are very pleasant. They were expedient and yet we did not feel rushed due to the restaurant closing in about 30 minutes. Although this is a restaurant attached to a tourist spot, the food was beyond what we expected as far as the quality of the food. We left well fed for well under $ 50.00 bucks! This is cheap for tourist destination restaurant. I have paid much more for sub-par food and service. So, get a little history, by taking a tour (with a mint julep!) and have a meal afterwards you will not regret it!

Wonderful stay.


Spent two nights in cottage 8. Everything was perfect. Easy check-in, beautiful and comfortable cottage. The best was walking the grounds after all the tourists were gone. Breakfast at the restaurant was included with the cottage and the food was good. Highly recommended.
