We enjoyed a full buffet with breakfast (eggs, sausage, bacon, grits, chicken & waffles, orange and cranberry juice), lunch(sliced brisket, baked chicken, pasta salad, jumbo shrimp), and cheeses and fruit. Then the performance began with a live band singing gospel and inspirational music. The music and singers were great and they were very interactive with the crowd. This was a... More

My husband and I got a few drinks at the bar next door and brought them in to see Bustout Burlesque. The show was amazing and hilarious-- we laughed so hard, gasped, cheered, and sang aloud along with the crowd and performer. The show itself was one of our favorite things about New Orleans-- I recommend it to everyone. The... More

To be honest...I wasn't expecting a great meal! I thought it would be like any chain restaurant where the food was just okay. I was totally wrong. To start we had the "Voodoo Shrimp" which was my very favourite dish during my visit to New Orleans. It was amazing! I followed that with a burger and a side of gumbo.... More

Fantastic buffet with lots of choice from scrambled eggs to jambalay, well cooked and well presented. Tea, coffee, orange juice, Mimosa cocktail etc were readily available and refilled as often as you wanted. The Gospel singing was amazing and very uplifting, everybody joined in and a good time was had by all. We are going again next Sunday.

Thank you for the fantastic review. Our brunch is definitely an uplifting experience, from the fresh all you can eat buffet to the bottomless mimosas and energetic live gospel performance. Thanks again! More

We saw the Bustout Burlesque show last night and I returned this morning for the Gospel Brunch, both awesome, amazing fun times. I would go to both again.

While in New Orleans we enjoyed dinner here at the Crossroads with family. The burger was one of the best I ever had, thick, juicyand full of flavor. The salads were fresh and plentiful. The fried chicken was excellent, crispy and fresh. The Juicy Lucy cheeseburger with bacon bits was a bit overcooked. The shrimp and grits (cake style) was... More

The entrance to The House of Blues was unique as you walk down a clean alley and are greeted by Jake Elwood. The restaurant atmosphere is relaxing and the music is reminiscent of some great musicians that are featured on the ceiling in sand. We had the Voodoo Shrimp which was outstanding. Our waitress informed is all the food is... More

We were invited to hang in the Foundation Room on a Friday night when one of my favorite New Orleans musicians was playing in the concert hall. The atmosphere and the service in the Foundation Room were so perfect for me and my partner. The concert hall itself is an ideal venue to see live music. Plenty of room to... More
