THE DIAMOND GRILL
As we navigate this new standard of normal you will notice some changes. The first and most obvious is the spacing between tables and limited occupancy. This is in accordance with the State Fire Marshall and Governor’s instructions to ensure the most appropriate level of social distancing while you enjoy your dining experience. Also, you will notice our one time use menus, absence of highly touched tabletop items, wrapped silverware and personal protective equipment on our service team. The Diamond Grill and its team are also sanitizing high touch surfaces on the half hour which include handles, handrails, elevator buttons, doorknobs, toilet handles and more. Our service and culinary team are practicing proper hand washing every 15 minutes as well as utilizing glove service while handling food and food service items. This is all to ensure your and our safety. We take your safety and the safety of our employees very seriously.
Please note that in addition to the changes above, our menu will change daily. Daily menus are created by our Executive Chef John Belvin, Jr. to ensure the best quality product is utilized in preparing your meals.
We appreciate your consideration during this time! Please know this is new to us as well! If you notice something you would like for us to to better, please email me directly!

Our story begins with schnacks jewelers
In 1931 it was a downtown jewelry store… now Diamond Grill, recipient of the 2006 Louisiana Preservation Honor Award, offers a wide range of superb menu items to suit every taste and budget. Try one of the nightly featured specials for a true delight.
C. A. Schnack’s Jewelry Store which began business in 1865 moved into this beautiful example of Art Nouveau / Art Deco Architecture where it would remain for the next 66 years. After the empty building was purchased by attorney Mike Small and developer Buddy Tudor, grandson of the structure’s original builder, a decision was made to return this building to service in the form of a mid to high-end casual dining establishment which could be enjoyed by both the community as well as visitors to Central Louisiana.
January 1, 2011, Mr. Michael L. Jenkins purchased the Jewel of Downtown Alexandria, The Diamond Grill Restaurant after the death of Mr. Robert "Buddy" Tudor, Jr. It is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Louisiana with fabulous dining. With its romantic ambience, the Diamond Grill offers intimate fine dining as well as two separate banquet areas upstairs that could seat 108 people comfortably. As a business leader, Jenkins has made great strides and has tremendous invested interests in the revitalization of the downtown area. Besides the restaurant, he has purchased several properties bringing new life to the buildings that were once vacant and stagnant.
