I eat here every trip to New Orleans. The trout is excellent as well as the rice and beans with sausage. This is not fine dining, but good down home cooking. Place is always packed and that's a testament to the food. Don't miss this place

This is closer to a honky tonk than a restaurant in that it is noisy and hopping. It is also a bar and they do have bands on occasions. Check ahead to see what is going on there before you go. It can be quite crowded.

Great fun place to go. Only wish I was younger to enjoy to it's fullest. Will be going back. I had the Oyster po boy, love the fried pickles. My wife had the Shrimp. Friendly staff.

Always visit when in New Orleans. I always get the Rustys Chicken sandwich and ask for sweet potato fries. The sandwich is huge and they pile the fries on the plate. They pile lots of cheese ranch and the usual veggies on. Come hungry if your getting the sandwich. Had onion rings appetizer and it was also a large serving.... More

Nestled in next to the river is this little gem. It has a fun atmosphere, good beer selection and a nice menu. It has the feel of a towny bar but has cleaned up nice to be a great stop.

We went early in a Saturday night, so the venue wasn't crowded by any means. There are three sets of double doors at the front, so the entry can be deceiving (left set). We weren't sure whether we could seat ourselves, but couldn't see any menus so we waited several minutes at the bar to request them. The service was... More

Went there for lunch and very much enjoyed my shrimp and oyster po boy. The best part was adding the Shack Sauce! Prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was relaxed and fun.

Went there for lunch and sat outside on the patio as the seating inside was packed. Good place to eat, had the alligator po-boy and my wife had a chicken tender salad and all around it was good food and good service, and we had fun listening to the yuppies from downtown sitting next to us complaining about their problems,...

The atmosphere, the décor and the food are truly Cajun. I had the red beans and rice with sausage and my wife had the shrimp po boy. Both were wonderful. The sausage was not too spicy and grilled with a BBQ sauce that was truly different. The shrimp poboy was stuffed with at least 15 succulent fried shrimp. Service was... More
