"From what we're hearing from phone calls, emails, Facebook posts etc this is going to be a huge plus for our community and certainly and very popular destination," Hornsby said.

Hornsby says the menu features great southern home cooking comfort foods like chicken-fried steak, pork chops, meatloaf, biscuits, frog legs and of course duck --- served up fried or in gumbo. She also says there are pictures, both new and old, of the family on the walls of the restaurant.

"One of my favorites was of Willie and Korie on the beach with their young children," said Hornsby. "They were very young and he's beardless and looks nothing like he looks now. We got a big kick out of that."

Hornsby says their convention and visitors bureau gets tons of calls and emails from Duck Dynasty fans all over the country who want to make vacation plans in West Monroe.

"Having something like the restaurant will enhance people's experience while they're here," says Hornsby.
