The Tchefuncte River dominates the landscape and is at the soul of Madisonville, so it is the focus of most of the dining in the little town as well. Several well-loved restaurants line the town’s riverfront offering diners a scenic water view along with regional specialties like spicy boiled seafood, broiled and fried fish, poboys and more.

Madisonville’s favorite restaurateur, Keith Young, operates his eponymous steakhouse as well as the casual Crabby Shack nearby.
