The first thing that hit us was the nearly overpowering smell of bleach. We got there at opening on a Sunday, so there must have been some serious cleaning going on that morning. The barstools were pretty filled up, but the restaurant looked pretty empty (one table occupied,) so we asked the bartender..."Can we sit anywhere?" "No" he says, we... More

I went to Tulane for college and I LOVE Lucy's for Friday night's pre-Bourbon Street or watching a Saints game. The food is alright, nothing to write home about considering all the other Nola food options, but the drinks are great and the atmosphere is fantastic. Get a Shark Attack or Blue Whale. If you're brave try a scorpion shot... More

Good burger and fish tacos. Good drinks. Good prices. Cool atmosphere. This is definitely a place I'd go to again on a future trip to New Orleans.

New Orleans has hundreds of places to eat- some better than others. I must say that our dinners at Lucy's were hands down among the top 5 meals that we had during our 9 days in NOLA! Actually- we enjoyed our first meal (Monday) so much, that my kids requested we have dinner at Lucy's a second time (Friday)!! Friday... More

This is a laid back place and the name describes the theme perfectly. Affordable seafood (surf) and alternatives (turf) , small but hopping bar, and limited but popular outdoor seating area. The food is good and priced right (I like the fish tacos), and beer specials/friendly staff are nice perks too.
