I eat here often

I eat here quite often when I'm out and about. Down home good food. When the weather is nice I love the patio dining. Daily specials too. Charbroiled Oysters are the best.

Stopped in for a qui k lunch and boy was it busy. $2 beer and a small bite to eat. Service was quick and friendly. Even with just snacks and a bowl of soup it was awesome.

Is it fancy? No. Is it expensive? No. Is it touristy? No. Is the food good? Yes and reasonably priced and you will see the locals eating there every day. The place has an interesting decorating thing going on. It looks like someone tried to "fancy" it up. Ignore the decorations. The photos are nice though. The spaghetti was not... More

My wife had been craving a good shrimp po-boy for a couple of weeks. While we were in Metairie we went to this restaurant, it was pretty busy but we were seated quickly and in less than 2 minutes our waitress was taking our order. She ordered her shrimp po-boy and I ordered the oyster po-boy. While waiting I looked... More

Every time I visit the New Orleans area, I go to New Orleans Food and Spirits (actually my first stop before I check into the hotel). I have the phone number stored in my phone - that's how addicted I am. I have also introduced several of my friends to the restaurant. You have to try the Voodoo Crawfish Rolls... More

Why do I say this? Well, it must be one or both reasons: They change their frying oil often enough and/or they only fry the shrimp in the "shrimp oil". No matter what location you visit, their seafood does not have a generic seafood flavor. In other words, the shrimp taste like the shrimp they are not like the catfish... More

Went there Friday night. Only about a 15minute wait. Ordered spinach artichoke dip- came out quickly. Very bland. No seasoning flare whatsoever. Avoid. We ordered house salads with blue cheese dressing-great dressing chunked full of blue cheese. I ordered the blackened catfish on top of angel hair-disappointed. The angel hair had no seasoning just fettucini alfredo sauce-which makes me think... More

I've been to this restaurant many times and every time we come to town we can't wait to get to this place. The gumbo is great! The best char grilled oysters in town. All of the pasta dishes are always a winner. The shrimp is tender and delicious. Daily specials are amazing and the portions are big enough to take... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant looking for a different restaurant which happened to be closed on Mondays. We had chargrilled oysters for an appetizer, my daughter had stuffed eggplant and the rest of my family had angel hair pasta with a cream sauce and shrimp with a large soft shell crab placed atop our plate (I don't remember the name...
