If you want to stop in between tours and food, it's a great place. All my drinks were well made, and I had the option to take home a souvenir glass. Our waiters were lively and accommodating...make it a point to stop by at somr point, even if just for a drink.

Oh yes. You can figure out the meaning of the title. Went to Pat O'Briens the afternoon of 8/20 because we had a New Orleans first timer in the group and it's just "one of those places you go", right? We got our Hurricanes. Seemed like the hard core liquor was on the bottom of the glass at the end... More

We always stop in, but I keep asking myself, "Why?" It's the atmosphere, I guess. I love the atmosphere. The drinks are way overpriced. They aren't very good, and Pat's has just become another rip and read tourist bar. Certainly not the pat's of old. Too bad. It used to be one of our favorite places in New Orleans.

Had to go because it was my girlfriends first visit to NOLA, but so overrated. The drinks are average, the Hurricane is still strong, but really just a lame place. Prices are cheap, and the glasses they come in are built into the price of the drink, and still cheap. If you don't want the glass, they will give you... More

This pub was just amazing! It's seem like there was a little bit of something for everyone, with the piano room in one area garden area in the next and dinner outside underneath the stars. Specialty drink of the house, The Hurricane 4 oz of rum and 4 oz of the Hurricane mix for $8.50, wow does this drink pack... More

We had lunch here as a family outdoor in the beautiful courtyard. The food was of a high quality but we were particularly impressed with the service, James, our waiter, was amazing even giving us advice on what to see and do and he went out of his way to provide vegetarian options. The famous hurricane is potent and well... More

The service was great and the snacks were OK. I had to try the alligator bites, to my surprise they had a nice flavor! The hurricane drink was sweet but good.

We stopped in at Pat Obriens to try the famous hurricane. We also got the Rainstorm. They had the better of the two hurricanes that i tried in New Orleans. Everyone at Pat Obriens was very helpful and friendly.

This great place hasn't really changed since I was in college (decades ago). The entertaining twin pianos and Alvin with his percussive fingers, plus the energized crowd of mixed ages, drive the evening with great standards, the crowd participating by singing, clapping, requesting songs, dancing in the aisles, and loving it all. The only thing I can say for improve... More
