We ate here on a Tuesday without the usual waiting time. The food came quickly and was good and hot. Fresh seafood. The seasoning wasn't as good as the French Quarter location but close

Always love eating at Deanie's their food and service are top notch! My favorite location is in Bucktown because of the family dinner atmosphere and actually eating here was our reason for stopping in New Orleans driving back to Houston from Florida. Geaux there and eat something you'll be glad you did :-)

The BBQ shrimp is divine. We loved the crab balls, stuffed crab balls on the platter, the French fries were well served and the seafood platter is the best.

We went to Deanie's to celebrate a couples anniversary. The service was very good, and the server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Well not realizing it my husband and I ordered the seafood platter each despite the warning from the server. There was so much food we each took some home. Despite the amount of people there, everything was... More

I couldn't end my four-day stay in NOLA without stopping by Deanie's on the recommendation of friends. Perhaps had I not eaten at other restaurants throughout the city my review would be more favorable. I purchased two quarts of gumbo to take home to my parents before dining in. I agree, the portions are large but seasonless! I asked to... More

If you love fried foods, this is the place for you. Mounds and mounds of fried shrimp, catfish tenders, and other delectable delights. Go hungry! Loved the red potatoes that were served when you sat down at the table.
