A menu for every event! A taste for every hunger! A flavor for every craving! When mixing great staff and great food, you get southern quality riverfront outdoor dining at its finest! SQ’s on the Ouachita is downtown Monroe’s newest attraction! A new front bar and private room have been added to suit all your needs. It’s available for booking and is perfect for birthdays or business functions. We have a new outdoor patio stage that hosts live music weekly, and we are happy to host local musicians.

We’ve added all new outdoor fireplaces out back just overlooking the Ouachita River that will keep you and your friends warm and cozy while you enjoy all that the restaurant has to offer. Our bar offers expertly mixed drinks from margaritas to bushwackers, and our kitchen offers some amazing new dishes that combine Sicilian tradition and Louisiana flavors!
