Gaston's returns as barbecue, beer restaurant
Another transformation has graced the historic district of Donaldsonville.
In 2013, the Hambrick family purchased the former Bank of Ascension and the Netter building, which date back to 1911. The buildings are a total of 27,000 square feet.
Over the last nine years, they've transformed the buildings into the Columns on the River, at the corner of Lessard Street, and the Inn on the River and Gaston's BBQ and Beer.
As mentioned on the restaurant's website, the location is near several industrial facilities and tourist attractions in Ascension, Iberville, and St. James parishes.
The restaurant is open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
