Cane to Franklinton to bring a pet to the vet. We asked the receptionist if the had a place close by to eat breakfast. She told us about the sugar shack. Great service, great food, great price. A lot of food for the price.

This restaurant is a nice short walk from the courthouse, which you'll need after enjoying their food. Kathy's service was very attentive and friendly, and her recommendations were spot-on. The restaurant was nicely appointed, with a comfortable feel and low noise level just right for socializing. The menu offered a good number of selections with a nice variety of home-cooking plates and sandwiches/salads. Crab and corn chowder was hearty with a rich creamy taste. Monday special Meatball, Marinara and Swiss on a fresh ciabatta roll was very tasty. Bread pudding was exceptional, especially the sauce - better than some of N.O.'s best. The patio looks appealing for the next few months. Checkout took a little time, but understandable (and not a big deal) in a successful restaurant.
I will be a repeat customer, for sure. I give this restaurant my highest grades in food quality (tie) and atmosphere and value based on food quality is high.

Bo’s is open for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and for lunch on Sunday’s. We previously ate Bo's evening seafood buffet which was EXCELLENT! Our waitress told us that they were open for lunch only on Sunday and that everyone comes after Church so we decided to go back and try the Sunday buffet. The restaurant is located on Hwy 25 outside of Franklinton, La., way out in the through the country. We arrived a little late at 1:10 PM, the restaurant closes on Sunday at 2 PM. The parking lot was full and it appeared that we were the last ones to arrive. They must know something that we didn’t, get there before 1 PM. We found that there were some empty food containers on the buffet and I stated out to my Companion that we may have made a mistake in coming 50 minutes before closing time. An Employee was working the buffet line and overheard my statement and asks if a certain food was out but never put any replacement food into the 2 empty containers. There were plenty of other food items so we moved on around the line. As we approached the dessert section there was a couple of pieces of cake, bread pudding and an empty banana pudding container. We so wanted banana pudding and the waitress even stated that there would be more put out, but it never happened. The food choices were excellent, and they have some GREAT COUNTRY COOKS. Fried chicken, mac n cheese, mash potatoes, rice, smoked chicken, corn, cabbage, chicken and dumplings, smothered roast n gravy, rolls, cornbread, large salad bar, dessert etc. This particular Sunday there was also Turkey and dressing. All this and a drink for the price of $11.00, what a bargain! The wait staff is very attentive always there keeping your glass full. Again the food and service both times that I ate at Bo’s was GREAT but the bad news is at 1:20 two employees’ brought the kitchen cart out and started dismantling the food bar. They moved containers around and turned off the bar lights. The only food that was refilled was fried chicken and this was taking place when we arrived at 1:10. It appears that even though they are open until 2 PM they actually don’t want to work very much past 2 PM. It appeared they want to have the bar completely shut down, no more eating ‘The Kitchen’s closed’ by the 2 PM closing time. I would suggest either reduce the price if you arrive at 1:05 or don’t start removing the buffet until the closing time of 2PM! Adjust the staff hours......management needs to take a look at the closing procedure…

Pizza owned and serviced by locals. Very good pizza, loaded and tasty. Only complaint would be that the pizza may need to cook a couple of minutes longer. Small pizza is great value.

Fantastic potatoe salad, baked beans and meats. We spent under $40 for two people and left with 3 boxes of leftovers. Oh and bread pudding is perfect!

Glynn's has a good background as a spin off on the Bogalusa location. After a promising opening the quality has declined. The lack of staff leads one to believe the location will close. Last 2 trips one person working the front taking and delivering orders, cahier, drawing drinks and ice cream, etc.

A full service Coffee Shop and Cafe that serves a full breakfast as well as Soups, Salads, Wraps & Panini's for lunch and dinner. We also have Daily Specials all under $7. We believe in using as many local products and supporting as many local vendors as possible. We are a small town people that treats you like family when you come through our doors. Our mission is simple: We are called to LOVE and SERVE GOD & to LOVE and SERVE ALL PEOPLE.
Nice little cafe set in a ranch style house in the middle of rural Louisiana. The pastries are all made "in-house" and the coffee is delicious. We had the panini sandwiches. The Christian theme is all over as well as with the piped in Contemporary Christian music. We were seated next to a pastor working on his sermon for Sunday. A beautiful find and a nice escape.

This little cafe is well-known locally for their fried chicken and shrimp. They have very good hamburgers - large, juicy and delicious. They also have very good shrimp po-boys.

Bourne's House is a buffet style Southern Seafood House. There is a menu to order from but the big attraction is the buffet. Bourne's offers a pretty good variety of local seafood: fried shrimp, boiled shrimp, boiled crawfish, hush puppies, fried catfish, crab cakes, you get the picture. They also have other southern favorites such as gumbo, shrimp bisque, fried chicken, red beans & rice, greens and more. They offer soft serve ice cream along with traditional southern style bread pudding, banana pudding, cobblers and more.
The star of the show for me was what I will call Bourne's version of "Bang Bang" fried shrimp. Fried just right with a not to hot not to cool sauce, well worth a spot on your plate.
So, why only four stars instead of five. The wait staff is friendly but overworked by the sheer volume of people having to be served during the rush. They also ran out of ice for the drinks and then ran out of drinks, not good. It didn't take too long for them to fix the problem, quick run to the store for ice and get the kettle hot for more tea.
The price is in line with most other fish houses in the area and the food is equal to or just a bit better for the most part. I'll be back and I recommend if you are in the area give them a try.

I believe this restaurant moved from Franklinton to Folsom or they opened one in Folsom too, but either way, good food, great buffet. Lots of variety, great taste, good staff. They are fast efficient and always smiling. The place is clean too. Prices are excellent!
