Good food, decent place

We visited here on a recommendation. The food was good, the prices were ok. The atmosphere is typical of a Bucktown seafood restaurant. I got a seafood platter and split it with my daughter. We finished it, but expected bigger portions. Next time we'll know it's for one person. The seafood was... read more

The exterior is clean, but plain, however the interior is very attractive and decorated with many local pictures. The bar area is also well presented. We thought our waitress, Hilda, did a very fine job. I ordered the Half Shrimp and Half Catfish Dinner Plate, which came with an enjoyable side salad. My partners shared the Deluxe Seafood Platter, which... More

You can get some of the best fried chicken, 3 pieces, in the city for lunch with a salad & a side for $10. They fry everything to order, the service fast & friendly. All & all a great place for New Orleans neighborhood style meal.

The place is a neighborhood style place. The food is great. The place is frequently very busy so this not a place for a quick meal. That said the menu is a mix of Italian and Creole.

authentic neighborhood restaurant that has expanded with several other restaurants with similar menus. Fried eggplant sticks are the best. Full bar. ALWAYS crowded so prepare to wait.

We went with family and toddlers. The waiter was absolutely the best. They dress formally but the atmosphere is casual and very family friendly. The menu was very diverse. Had the stuffed artichoke which was out of this world! They make all of their own dressings and they are delicious. Had turtle soup which was divine :) Very reasonably priced,... More

A group of my friends and I visited this place yesterday for lunch. I ordered the charbroiled oysters, the shrimp and grits, and the bread pudding. The service was excellent, the food was fantastic, and the atmosphere was welcoming. My favorite was the oysters. One of the best charbroiled oyster dishes I have had- and I have tried many. We...

Everybody has heard of Antoine's and Emeril's and Commander's but nobody outside of the city has ever heard of Mr. Ed's. I guess that's understandable, but it's also a shame. The famous places are great, sure, but the real New Orleans experience requires that you leave the French Quarter and the Garden District and explore where the locals eat. I... More

On Monday 09/22/14, my family and I went to eat lunch around 2:00pm. I ordered the stuffed mirliton and while eating felt something hard on my teeth. I thought it was a crab shell but it was a piece of GLASS!!!!. I called the waitress over, showed her the glass and food contents in my napkin, she apologized and went... More
