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 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.

Join us for our 2, 4, 6, 8 Happy Hour Monday through Thursday, 3-6pm: $2 beer, $4 wine, $6 cocktails, and $8 pizza

Steaks for State Champs

Restaurant Cotton proudly introduces its latest endeavor, the “Steaks for State Champs” initiative, dedicated to celebrating the often-overlooked heroes behind high school sports victories: the coaching staffs. In a heartfelt tribute to their dedication and contribution to our community, Restaurant Cotton extends an invitation for a complimentary dinner to coaching staffs whose teams clinch state championships.

Eligibility for the “Steaks for State Champs” program is straightforward: coaching staffs of local high school teams that secure state championships in athletics are cordially invited to enjoy a complimentary dinner at Restaurant Cotton. This initiative serves as a deep expression of gratitude, acknowledging the significant influence these coaches wield over our youth and community.
