It has been almost twenty years since I visited Deanie's in Metairie and I have been anticipating eating here again. I have eaten at the Deanie'ss in downtown New Orleans several times, but the original Denie's is special. The food and service is very good if you like fried seafood. Get the... read more

If I could give this location a 0 rating I would. My husband and I went to this restaurant on Friday, November 20th at 7:30pm. We were in town for our anniversary and ordered the platter for 29.95. The platter came out and my husband ate a piece of the fish , it was bland. We asked for the manager... More

I have been to New Orleans twice before and eaten at some seafood places that came highly recommended and been Very unhappy but this place did not disappoint. The restaurant was great with huge portions of amazingly good food. Three adults shared one appetizer of crab claws and a HALF platter of seafood. It was plenty and delicious.

Waitress was good, food was only so-so. Worst Crawfish Etouffee I have ever had. I should have sent it back but it was wife's birthday and did not want to spoil her night. Then when she left over half of her Stuffed Flounder, I had eaten too much at that point and was stuck!!!

Arrived at 8 pm to a live band in the parking lot. The food will never disappoint. Fresh, flavorful and fast. No bread on the table, new potatoes and butter. This is where the locals are, not tourists, families on a Friday night out for fun

Every Friday night in October they celebrate Octoberfest with outdoor music, free. Group was loud enough to be heard indoors. Large selection of fried, grilled, BBQed items, soups, salads, etc. Desserts awesome. All of our selections delicious.

After taking a wrong turn taxi ride with a new driver to a place only 7 straight blocks from our hotel and then jumping into another cab. We made it. Then had to wait for 20 mins at 10pm for a table. The place is loud and bright and the food was ok. Not my favorite but it works in... More

This place is reviewed so highly but we had a mediocre experience. My stuffed crab was not good at all. I didn't even eat it. My boyfriend had the shrimp po-boy and it was massive. The shrimp were not de-veined though and that was kinda gross. The fries were good and the potatoes they bring out are slightly spicy and... More
