The Levee is a quaint country store and restaurant in the heart of downtown Placerville. When you come into The Levee it’s more than coming into get some lunch to us, we are welcoming you into our home. The food that Chef Sonya makes is her own family recipes. We offer you authentic Louisiana cooking, like Boudin Bites, Shrimp Creole, and much much more—AND we have LOTS of Local Wine!
Our Menu is a lot of fun for us; we keep some basic items on the menu and then change up the rest. For us what we have on the menu is based on how fresh it is and where it comes from. We try to keep two things always ready: Sausage Red Beans and Rice and Gumbo. These two dishes are the heart of Cajun & Creole food. Things get a little more exciting sometimes; we’ve recently got gator tail and have served it in fried bites. Boy do people love it!!
What’s really neat about The Levee is that we do not only serve food but we also have brought in these amazing products for you to purchase. Spices and Seasonings from Louisiana, the good stuff too! These spices you will find in the stores in New Orleans, along with items that give you that true southern flare. We have Louisiana food inspired dish ware, Fleur De Lis key chains, glass ware, flags, and flour sack dish towels. You never know what you can find in our country store, but you are sure to get a tasty treat and that true southern hospitality when you stop by The Levee.
We will see y’all soon!
