Cool shirts, awesome atmosphere, good food

Such a great place. My husband loves to pick up t-shirts from places we travel. They had some cool ones but were all out. :-( We still had a good time visiting this cool concept bar/restaurant! We got the Juicy Lucy--SCRUMPTIOUS, and chicken fingers (of course) for the 8yo, which he ate up. Good... read more

SO.. I walk into this place annoyed. The wife and kids picked this place to run into when it started raining on us in July when we were eating our way across the quarter, 5 days of food fun!

We were walking towards the WW2 Museum, looking for a place to have breakfast. We found Lucy's. Service and food has been amazing! The restaurant's specialty is seafood (Creole / Cajun), there is Shrimp & Andouille that is definitely a top choice! We will definitely comeback for drinks later!

This is a busy, fun little place. My group became concerned, however, because our server forgot multiple requests and we had to ask over and over for some items. I can appreciate the laid back atmosphere, but this was a little over the top. Several times, we sat there waiting for a request as all of the servers huddled around... More

We were looming for reasonable seafood & we found it at Lucy's. We both had tacos-fish and shrimp. Fresh and delicious. Full bar. Bar atmosphere.

Loud and kinda raucous, hard to have an intelligent conversation without shouting. Probably not the type of place I would go to for a couples night out. Bachelor/Bachelorette party this place would probably fit the bill. It is just off the French Quarter. Service/food was OK ... just not some place I would pick on my own to dine.

If your looking for a casual TexMex meal look no further in NOLA. I'm from Texas and trust me it is hard to find in New Orleans. Great fresh salsa. Excellent beef and chicken fajita nachos. Good fish tacos as well. Can get busy and crazy on weekends but it is on my go to list when visiting NOLA.

My friend and I are locals, we normally go to another place for on taco Tuesday, but our normal place was a 2hr wait (yuk!) So we thought we would try something new.

5 Girlfriends and I went to this spot on our "dog-friendly" NOLA weekend and we brought along our 5 labradoodles! Our initial impression from the hostess's desk was not the best... i believe she actually scowled and eye rolled us, but we were not going to let that ruin our night. We were seated outside by the front door (the... More
