The piano player were pretty good and engaging, really enjoyed it. Be very careful with your bill as they charge you for your glasses, assume your going to take them...you must return them to the bar for a refund. I think they make a bundle on this policy.

The drinks came in a souvenir glass. They were pricey but great tasting. The only downer was the wait for drinks! It's very busy there.

I had actually been looking forward to visiting Pat O'Brien's as it was my first time to visit New Orleans! After being there for only 15 minutes, I quickly realized that the servers/staff were like robots and out of the four that I encountered only one was attentive and or talkative. The atmosphere was on the norm, the drinks were... More

Was going to go for lunch. Got there and they apparently have 2 different openings. The staff said to walk past gate and I could see hostess to be sat. There were multiple gates. The hostess said since I wanted to eat inside the only option was to sit at bar. Within a minute of sitting at the bar a... More

This is a great bar with a real party spirit. We went there two nights because we enjoyed the duelling piano players. They play requests from the crowd (slip a $1.00 in a napkin as a courtesy for their efforts). The bar looks like it is an original tavern from a century ago (exposed beams), so it is cool inside....

Walk through Pat Obrien's far in the back to find a real treasure, the dueling piano bar. This is a great place to sit down, relax, enjoy a hurricane and enjoy some fun music. You can write suggestions for the players on a napkin and with a slight tip they will play your requests. The musicians are highly talented and... More

We stopped in to have a beverage and check out the dueling pianists of the evening. While enjoying the courtyard scene, we decided to have a snack rather than go to another pricey French Quarter restaurant for dinner. I had a burger which was very good and my husband had the special of the day, a shrimp sandwich, which he... More
