Ramie's Restaurant Seafood & Steaks
Great Friends & Great Food
In 1970, Reggie and Maureen Bourne founded House of Catfish in Pensacola, Florida, eventually selling the business to Pit Grill of Texas. After a brief stay in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, the Bourne family moved back home to Pine.
Reggie and Maureen bought Chings Lounge and ran a successful business, but they returned to their passion of having a restaurant, which was their orignial intent. They converted the lounge into the House of Seafood. After a while, Reggie was forced to take some time off due to an injury. He had to rely on his youngest son, Ramie, to fill the void. Upon his return, Ramie had a firm grasp of the kitchen duties, while his mother, Maureen, managed the dining area. At this time, Reggie opened the House of Seafood Buffet in Bush, LA. With a repidly growing business in Bush, the family sold the House of Seafood in Bogalusa to focus on the "new" restaurant.
Reggie and Maureen instilled in their sons the importance of hard work and dedication. As time passed, Ramie opened a wholesale distribution business throughout the south from Texas to Georgia, expanding his knowledge of the seafood industry. After retiring for a few years, Reggie had an idea for a family friendly, low cost buffet in Pine. He opened Bourne's House with Ramie and his mother, Maureen, controlling the kitchen. After Reggie's passing, Ramie and his wife, Suzi, vowed to keep Reggie's philosophy by maintaining the friendly, family atmosphere and low cost.
After much thought and prayer, Ramie and Suzi decided to bring the same concept to the Bogalusa area. With everything Ramie has been taught by his parents, and the work ethic Suzi was taught by her parents, their desire is to keep their famiy legacy alive. Ramie's Restaurant is dedicated to the honor of Ramie's mother,Maureen, to the memory of his father, Reggie Bourne and to the honor of Suzi's parents Clyde and Yvonne Kennedy.
