Our founders, Jack Warner & Brandon Landry, met in 1997 on the hardwood of LSU's Pete Maravich Assembly Center. As young boys growing up, each dreamed of playing basketball for LSU & both succeeded - it just so happened to be as walk-ons. Jack's first season with the Tigers was in 1996 with Coach Dale Brown & Brandon walked on the team the following year. It was during this time the dream for Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar began to take shape. Like many good ideas, the concept for Walk-On's was born on a road trip. While traveling throughout the SEC, Jack & Brandon happened to visit quite a variety of restaurants and bars. In fact, the first concept for the restaurant was literally drawn on a napkin in an airplane flying back from a game at the University of Tennessee. Walk-On's is a culmination of many years of ideas, hopes and dreams. We are a true celebration of great food & drink combined with team spirit & camaraderie. We also possess an undying enthusiasm for winning service that you can look forward to every time you walk through our doors. We are the perfect place to grab a bite or a beer, bring the family out to dinner, party with your friends, or head to before, during or after any game. So when you feel like relaxing or having a little fun, head on over to see us…we guarantee you'll get some playing time! We sincerely thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you. We welcome you to our restaurant & our dream.
