Ivan's Pub: Local's haunt
I go there whenever in town. Locals gather to DRINK, Louisiana style. Not tourist style with zydeco or folks dressed up like cajuns.
Pool, darts, Abita beer on tap and a generally friendly crowd...
Sign boasts "home of the neon lizard." I've never had one, but I'm sure it packs a wallop!
