I had to stop in and get an original Hurricane while visiting the Big Easy. Pat O'Brien's has at least four different bars around their courtyard with a flaming fountain, so it's easy to find the atmosphere you're looking for. The piano bar is one of my favorites, but the pub is great as well as the patio bar. I... More

Decided to eat here due to the location and menu and I wasn't disappointed. I had the alligator bites and shrimp and grits. It was very tasty. The best part of the visit was the Hurricane! It's worth a visit!

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!
