Steamboat Warehouse Restaurant
The Steamboat Warehouse Restaurant provides a truly unique dining experience in Washington, Louisiana, the third oldest establishment in the state. This historic,
bousillage structure, located in heart of the old steamboat port of the town, offers guests a step back in time. In fact, it is the last of the old steamboat warehouses still standing on Bayou Courtableau. The building was constructed in the 1820s, and originally stored cotton before it was restored in 1977 as a fine-dining restaurant. Today, a massive collection of antiques on display and exposed brick walls set the stage for an unforgettable dining experience while enjoying signature dishes such as Steak Lafitte and Chef’s specialty, soft shell crabs. The building’s rich history and rumors of paranormal activity have attracted tourist, “hunters”, bloggers and writers. Restaurant staff will tell you fascinating stories about creepy encounters, enough to give you the frissons (chills)! Even formal investigations have even taken place, but what’s really spooky is how good the food is! The owner-chef, Jason Huguet, has received multiple awards and gold medals for menu items such as Eggplant Belle Rose, Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, and Sidesaddle Angels.
