Visited on a Tuesday night just as the band started. I had shrimp and grits... Not much flavor. Husband had pulled pork sandwich... Very tough bread. Go for a drink, appetizer and music. Dine elsewhere beforehand.

My wife and I love traditional jazz but hate rock, funk, and all the other 'modern' sounds. We lucked in here with a traditional jazz combo and loved it. The food and drinks were average but the sound was supurb. Dropped by two nights later and it was super loud funk (or something). Not for us.

We kind of just walked down Frenchmen Street, seeing what music drew us in. Maison was it! Big Easy Brawlers were playing, and they were awesome! No cover for the bar, and lots of places to sit. The band put on a great show, even getting the crowd involved. Their energy was high the whole time, and overall they were... More

One of my favorite spots to hear traditional jazz music (before 10 PM) After 10, music turns louder and more funk or other New Orleans styles. No cover for dinner time jazz music. Decent food served as well. After 10PM there is a cover charge for other music and the tables come out, becoming a pure bar. Saturday from 7-10... More

Pros - great street in FQ - great bar with good drinks, fun people and staff - saw the bad Magnitude who who were awesome - feel of the bar is very "organic" as the bands and guests sort of dictate what will happen next - felt like you got to hang out with a group of friends who were... More

Great atmosphere and awesome service. The atmosphere is the best out of many New Orleans bars I have been to. It is a great place to listen to music and also sit down and enjoy Cajun food.

I went there to eat and drink on a Sunday evening (around 9 pm) and the kitchen closed all of the sudden... Rude service and unreasonable explanation...

Great place for music and food and friends. Staff is attentive and southern sweet! Chelsea is money for their staff ... Friendly and informative. She pointed us to the crawfish bites and didn't miss! What a experience in this music rich culture. An amazing getaway from the busyness of the city to just hang and hear good music. I'm not... More
