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.

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.

This was an amazing concert and venue! We had such an awesome night :) Loved the decor and acoustics. Even got to take a peak backstage and meet the band!!! I couldn't stop thinking about all the talent that must have performed on that very stage in a city that is steeped in musical history.
