Monroe's (Steak House)

Used to be one of my favorite places. Sage operates out of that building now. Went there last week. It was pretty decent. Not as good as when Corey Bahr was still chef.

Monroe's was in Monroe, Broussard and New Orleans. Was patterned after the Chart House. The one in Monroe was always Monroe's or Monroe Steak House. Not sure about the Broussard location.

What years are you thinking? Was Monroe's from early 80s to mid 90s.

re: Monroe dinner spots
Pickle barrel was just recently bought by a former ULM baseball player. From what I hear he has turned it into a pretty good beer bar, not sure if they still serve lunch or supper.

I don't go to Monroe much, but have heard ads for a place called Catfish Charlie's. For you who live over there, what's your take on this place?

uhhh, it ain't bad.. very laid back,, they do offer a sort of a thin and crispy option similar to middendorfs.. for whatever reason they cut the catfish steaks sorta in a different pattern than normal.. It's ok.. For just catfish, I prefer Catfish Cabin and out in Swartz, Danken Trail.

re: Monroe dinner spots
I prefer the catfish, whole or filet, at Catfish Cabin. Haven't tried Dankin Trail, but if Gueaxt swears by it, it ain't bad.
