Eating Our Way Through Shreveport


Go ahead, twist our arm!

The 318 Restaurant Week, a citywide promotion of local restaurants organized by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau and its partners, returns March 18 through 23 at more than 50 participating restaurants. Lunch and dinner specials for $10 and $20 respectively will be offered, as well as 10 special dining experiences.

The goal of Shreveport-Bossier City’s 318 Restaurant Week is to encourage locals and visitors alike to explore the twin city’s restaurant scene. The promotional pricing, special menus and dining events encourage people to try out new places or revisit old favorites. Participating restaurants range from casual eateries to upscale restaurants.


Special events include:

“Crossroads of the South” at Bella Fresca, Monday, March 18 

“Brazilian Steak Night” at The Petroleum Club, Tuesday, March 19

“Where There’s Smoke” at Real BBQ & More, Tuesday, March 19

“Full Moon, High Tide: A Spring Equinox Seafood Experience” at Shreveport Aquarium, Wednesday, March 20

“Navigating The Port Grill” at The Port Grill, Wednesday, March 20

“Dining in the East Bank District” in Bossier City’s East Bank District, Thursday, March 21

For a complete description of each event or to purchase tickets in advance, visit www.318RestaurantWeek.com. Space is limited for each of the one-night-only events and advance ticket purchase is required.

New for 2019 is the 318 Crawfish Crawl sponsored by Boomtown Casino and Hotel, running from March 16 through May 31. When participants visit local crawfish joints, they receive “passport stamps” in their “passport.” After diners deliver their completed passport to the Downtown Shreveport Visitor Center at 629 Spring St., they will be entered to win a Shreveport-Bossier staycation and a $100 Visa gift card. 

The public can sign up to receive updates from 318 Restaurant Week by visiting www.318RestaurantWeek.com and selecting “Contest and Updates,” plus also enter to win gift cards from local restaurants.
