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

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
