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.

Everytime we come to New Orleans we make Deanies a must. Their shrimp PO Boy is delicious and the soft shell crab is unique in every way. The flavors of all their food will have you wanting more!! The ambiance is superb and the location is awesome...nestled in the heart of the French Quarter and just a walk away from... More

Just off of Causeway BLVD and on the shores of Lake Ponchartrain, Deanies is a cajun food lovers dream. I ordered the Crawfis etoufe and it was so good its sinful and was plenty to eat and the sevvice was top notch

We had some boiled crabs, they were not good at all to much salt and they were all brown inside. Manager did not make good on the sale of the crabs. Very poor manager. We will not be returning to Deanie's on the lake at all.

we shared a seafood platter & it was more than 3 people could eat. Everything tasted wonderful, it was served promptly & the wait staff was very friendly. They brought out a bowl of buttered potatoes that were very good, too. I highly recommend this restaurant & I, personally, cannot wait to get back there. I am even still carrying... More

It was served by a really nice person that took care of us the whole time the glass never when empty. I had to have seafood platter which would have fed half of Metairie. It was out perfectly cooked. & I recommend... More

On my trips to New Orleans, I had been advised to try Deanie's by a number of locals. After a couple of abortive attempts (the wait was just too long), we visited Deanie's and had pleasant conversations with locals during the 45 minute wait for a table on a Friday night visit. Once in, we had good, but a little... More

We ate at Deanie's in the French Quarter. That could have been our mistake. The original in Bucktown was the best. It had/has local flavor a sense of originality. Deanie's FQ was just a tourist turn style restaurant. You felt hustled and as if the servers were being bothered by you expecting them to serve you. Food was at best... More
