Acadiana's Top Seafood Restaurant for Over 90 Years!

Come enjoy great Cajun cuisine with us at Riverside Inn!

After 90 years of serving great seafood, the Hurst family’s seafood restaurant has become a Cajun icon standing out amongst the hundreds of eateries in Acadiana.  Poor Boy’s Riverside Inn in Broussard draws thousands of locals and tourists to their doors annually. Yet, when you sit down to enjoy one of the Hurst family’s uniquely created Acadiana culinary delights, you will feel as welcome as a Cajun cousin by their friendly and loyal staff members. Many couples have celebrated anniversaries, graduations, promotions, retirements, business deals, presentations, wedding dinners and rehearsals at the Hurst family’s seafood restaurant and birthday parties are a common event!

The seafood restaurant serves fresh Gulf to table fish and seafood daily, but there’s so much more to enjoy on their uniquely delicious and delectable menu. From their alligator tidbits and sizzling steaks to their mouthwatering homemade bread pudding, you won’t leave hungry or unsatisfied.

Our family is proud to have served Acadiana for over eight decades and will continue the tradition of preparing great seafood dishes and Cajun cuisine. We simply love what we do, and it shows in every dish we prepare from our old family recipes and newly created ones!  Stop by Riverside Inn or order online. We thank you for your business! And don’t forget to try our world-famous crab fingers!” ~  Richard & Lori Hurst
