Friends recommended this restaurant and we have them to thank for a great find. You get a ton of food for the $$. We ordered a half plate and shared it but we still had leftovers. We had the assortment of seafood and i think we got a whole soft shell crab, about 4-5 oysters, about 9 large shrimp and... More

We stopped here for lunch and weren't disappointed. We arrived just as the place opened at 11:00 AM. There were two other couples waiting just as we were, all out of towners. The place quickly filled up with regulars. Don't expect anything fancy. Formica tables and basic old line cafe atmosphere. She had the oyster po boy. I had the... More

Start with the onion rings and split a dinner! Everything is BIG and Bigger! Stuffed shrimp was fresh and hot. If we had realized we'd get new potatoes free as an appetizer, we would have skipped the onion rings. But honestly, the rings were BEST. Crispy, hot, well done.

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
