Fried Seafood Galore

Really good. It's been awhile. 30 minute wait on a Thursday for lunch. Friendly staff. Ordered the half seafood platter to split. The boiled potatoes were a nice lagniappe. Platter was delicious. But the oysters were small and over fried. Looking forward to a return trip.

My daughter had heard that this was a place a lot of locals went to and while the food was okay I don't think we will be back. We were a party of 3 adults, 2 kids and 1 baby for lunch. The person who seated us just did not seem happy - not sure if it was all the... More

The food and service was good. Was upset that the lunch menu is not offered on the weekend and it isn't noted anywhere. Even the table next to us changed their mind on what to eat because the dinner menu is twice the amount of the lunch menu.

My favorite restaurant in New Orleans.. Upon sitting down, a bowl of red skin potatoes cooked in cajun boil is placed in front of you with butter.... Appetizers of boiled shrimp, fresh, sweet, generous oysters! Dinner of blackend redfish, broiled soft shell grab, Laisser les bon temp rouille! C'est bien fortmidable! My only caution is go hungry because portions are... More

Visited upon the suggestion of my coworker and I wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed the crab duo and it was delicious. My family had fried shrimp. The food was fresh and the service was prompt and attentive. I will definitely visit again.

The seafood is some of the best in New Orleans, Deanie's is the first place that I want to go to eat as soon as I arrive in New Orleans.

I love the food but the wait was a little long. Could see tables that would accommodate our party of 5 but the servers chose to seat smaller parties before ours.

BBQ shrimp is a must-try, at least once in your life (if not every time you are in New Orleans). I can't speak on the other food, because that's all I typically get.

We're glad you enjoyed our New Orleans Barbecue Shrimp! It is one of our top sellers. Do give our other items a try some time ;) Did you know we have a Barbecue Shrimp Pasta, a creamier, less messy version of our regular BBQ Shrimp? Thanks for your business. We look forward to seeing you back soon! More

I was told by my Boss about this place. It's off the main drag of the other restaurants but was worth the find. This place has the Old New Orleans charm about it. It was busy, but my co-workers and I got seated very quickly. Everything they brought out of the kitchen look great. I got the stuff flounder, with... More
