Yummy!

Nice selection on their menu. Italian...seafood... Po Boys, all good eats. This is the spot that locals of Metairie have been visiting for a long time.

Hard lunch here with old friends this week. Consistently great food & service. We are well known there and get hugs from manager. Best to order seafood. Fresh & prepared well. I had shrimp cocktail & turtle soup. Turtle soup is a New Orleans specialty. Theirs is very good. Always ask for a short of sherry in your turtle soup.... More

Mr. Ed's has been a local favorite for years. The food is consistently good. Has quite a few of New Orleans dishes, not the "fancy" dishes, but lots of food on the plate. The wait staff is excellent and there are a lot of regulars.

From fried chicken to seafood platters, to hot lunches , this place has whatever you want. This restaurant is located off the beaten path, in Bucktown wihich used to be a fishing village . Enjoy

Yesterday I was trying to take my sister and brother in law to my favorite seafood place in New Orleans and was surprised to find out that they were closed on Mondays. As I rattled off a list of restaurants that I thought had the best fried seafood, the same closed on Monday thing kept being the case. It was... More

Place looks like a Perkins but food is food. Raw oysters from St. Bernard parish are huge and delicious. Bienville style nice and not too greasy. Beer selection so so but is the case typically with Nola.

This great little spot is well off the beaten path in Metairie, LA but is worth the effort to get there. The extensive menu offers a wide variety of Italian and seafood meals, as well as great fried chicken. This is one of the few venues I have found that offers turtle soup. The decor is simple but clean. The... More

my mother and I love to go to Mr. Ed's restaurant. We usually go every three weeks. Our server Hilda was so accommodating. I asked about a dish that wasn't on the menu and she was able to get it for me. She was just a delight. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend this fine restaurant!

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 breaded nicely and tasted good. My wife got... 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
