This bar pumps all night so we went for brunch to see what all the fuss was about. The food was good, mimosa's $3!, quick service, and colouring sheets for the kids. High chairs available. It wasn't the best food I have ever eaten but it was certainly tasty and ideal for hungry people who needed quick service and a... More

We stopped here on our way out of town and were very pleased with the food and the prices. Not too touristy and and service was good as well. I would definitely go back.

My daughter & I came upon a small corner bar & restaurant advertising BRUNCH 10-3, so we took a chance. Super friendly staff, fun music playing, and great menu variety & awesome food!! I'm going to bookmark Lucy's so I can find it again!

Situated just across the road from our hotel in the Arts / Warehouse area of NOLA, we were intrigued as to why people were queuing to get into Lucy's (this was late weekend evenings). Decided to have Saturday lunch with friends, excellent bar food and very friendly atmosphere. It was Fathers day and although Mimosa's were available for $3, for... More

I stopped by at 3:00 pm for a quick beer, like I really needed another one, and decided just to order the calamari. I make it a practice to order calamari wherever I go. Some are ok: some bad: but none compare to Lucy's. Excellent. Not just you're usual breaded rubberbands. See you soon Lucy!

WOW...! Yummy food, great atmosphere, TV's all around, great art work. Hamburgers are delicious and the Bloody Mary's are the BEST in town!

Lucy's is a Hawaiian takeoff restaurant located in New Orleans, but it's well done and not tacky at all. The wait staff are professional and fun to deal with. Best of all the food is excellent. Definitely a place to consider for lunch.

It's a small restaurant but the food and atmosphere is good. Try their crab cakes; some of the best in NOLA in my opinion. Prices are reasonable.

Always like to come here for brunch while in New Orleans. Usually not crowded around that time If you come after a Saint's game you will probably see a few players celebrating.

We went on a Sunday night so it was quiet with no real ambience. The service was good but the food we chose(shrimp salad and crawfish) was disappointing . The salad was a few lettuce leaves,toms and cucumber and although there were a lot of crawfish I found them tasteless
