We did eat here once for lunch. It was ok, nothing spectacular but you have to go to the courtyard once for a meal its very pretty and a French Quarter Icon. The piano bar at night is a must see. Lots of fun. The pianists take requests all night long and some will try to play just about anything.... More

We visited Pat O'Brien's piano bar two of our three nights in NOLA. Two piano players who take turns performing songs that are requested by patrons. Lots of sing-alongs and lots of fun. They know thousands of songs! We happened to be there on 9/11 and there were a number of Canadians and Australians in the house, who requested quite... More

Well worth visiting this bar. Vibrant and entertaining to say the least. Order the bar's well known rum/fruit juice tall drink. You pay an excess for the glass which is a great souvenir. If you do not wish to take it with you, you take it back to the bar and get a refund of ? $3-4. If you wish... More

After a long hot day and big dinner, we stopped into the piano bar. This is a must for those who want a cold drink and a bit of fun entertainment. Two large pianos, face to face, play requested and celebratory songs for birthdays, anniversaries and some school fight songs. In between requests they play a variety of well known... More

A must if your in the quarter. Famous for the Hurricane drink, which sneek up on you if you drink too many. The food is very good. I would recommend the gator bites and bloody mary wings. A little better than great!

We've tried hurricanes at a few establishments, but none can compare to Pat O'Brien's. Not sure why they charge extra if you prefer to sit on the patio, but worth the little extra for am ambiance. The fountain is wonderful and it is a little escape from the bustle of Bourbon Street.

Went to Pat O'Brien's to try the World Famous Hurricane and I will tell you they do not disappoint. The drinks are strong and fairly reasonable. The piano bar is very entertaining as it has a "dueling piano" style party inside. Went on a Saturday and it was packed, but when we went back on Sunday it was a perfect... More

The first night we sat in the piano bar. It was great. They have two piano players taking requests, along with the guy (sorry I forgot his name) that has foil on his fingertips and taps on a metal tray to the beats of the music. Our server in the piano bar did not seem to be having nearly as... More

My husband and I came in specifically so I could try their hurricane. We grabbed a seat at the bar, and my husband ordered a sazerac, which he enjoyed. I of course got a hurricane (not in a souvenir glass, plastic Togo cup was fine for me) and I will never drink a hurricane from there again. It was so... More
