The Cabin Restaurant - Burnside, Louisiana - Fine Cajun Food Since 1973


Good Food since 1973


Come inside ...       

Inside The Cabin As one looks around upon entering,  The Cabin 
As you enter the cabin ... gives off an aura of 
authenticity and realism.

The original cypress roof is still visible from inside,
and even the spider webs of 100 years ago
 are still clinging to the ceiling.

The Cabin's Papered WallsThe walls are papered with ancient newspaper,
fixed to the wall with a mixture of flour and water. 

This was the way the slaves insulated the
walls of the original slave dwelling. 

Cozy Dining   
In practically every nook and
cranny, antique farm implements and
Old bottles on display tools of years gone by
are displayed for
you to see.


Fireplace in The Cabin  
Originally, there were two chimneys and four
 rooms in the main cabin. One of the chimneys
has been rebuilt as it once stood.

The original floor in the main cabin has been replaced with pine flooring from the commissary at the Welham Plantation in Convent, Louisiana.

The Grand Dining Room

Beautiful woodwork, with windows overlooking the courtyard the roof is supported by four
 massive beams that were manufacturer's rejects
 obtained for a bottle of
 Old Crow bourbon

 These were placed so that the 
room resembles a garconnier
(the visiting bachelor's quarters on a river road plantation).
