This restaurant was close to my hotel and it was a great local bar that was a nice break from the French Quarter. Cold beer, good prices on food. The homemade chips and salsa were awesome.

Open early in the morning for breakfast and late at night for cocktails, this is a great place that provides a party at night and recovery place in the morning. Good service and a great atmosphere. We dropped by one afternoon for drinks and appetizers and enjoyed great queso and appetizers and the famous Shark Attack drink. We came back... More

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!
