Creative Southern Cuisine

Meal at Restaurant Cotton

Visit Cotton for the Southern Delta’s Finest Cuisine

Located in the heart of historic downtown Monroe in Louisiana, Restaurant Cotton takes pride in offering some of the Southern Delta’s finest comfort food this side of the Mississippi. Visitors enjoy our one-of-a-kind atmosphere and our rich history, as well as our picturesque view of the Ouachita River and our creative, upscale spin on Southern comfort cuisine. Once upon a time, this building was actually a hub for cotton and bourbon transportation, hence our restaurant’s industrious namesake.
