Great view on the river walk

Live music, good food, and right on the river. Cannot ask for more. The place has an inside and an outside-type patio. We opted to sit outside and enjoy the weather. The weather was perfect to sit outside on the deck overlooking the river. Definitely touristy and service was average. Could not... read more

Everything was rather average; nothing exceptional. I had the shrimp po'boy and was VERY underwhelmed and only ate about 1/4 of the sandwich.My husband got the oyster po'boy. The oysters were not terribly fresh, so he ate half of my sandwich. We mentioned that the oysters weren't fresh and she was unconcerned and didn't offer to replace it, and we... More

Ordered a hushpuppy appetizer for 6.99 and got 7 hushpuppies. A dollar a piece? For a hushpuppy? Beer is $7.50. Really? $7.50 for a beer? Ordered red beans and rice it was ok. Just ok. But the beard served with it was hard as a rock. Service was ok but absolutely nothing special. Overall a very poor experience. I recommend... More

Went as a family. Food was great, although bread quite bland. The atmosphere was wonderful and even festive. (Saw several parties of 8-10 there for various celebrations.) Staff was friendly and very attentive. They were busy, but are large enough to accommodate a large influx. I would definitely eat here again (and again) if we lived in New Orleans. Worst... More

The food was excellent, but the service was slow and the waiter was very rude and grumpy! A lot of people eat here. It would've been way better if we would've had a better waiter.

Joined a group of colleagues for dinner at this place. I had read other reviews that commented that it's a touristy spot but the menu looked good and prices reasonable. The restaurant is in a tourist location but views are nice of the river and they had a live band outside. I ordered the Shrimp Creole and wished I had... More

Waited over thirty minutes for check faster asking twice. spoke to manager on way out. She did even make eye contact and was not apologetic or interested. very disappointing. Restrooms were dirty.

From the moment we attempted to check in for our reservation, we felt the urge to leave however opted to stay and try the seafood bucket. Disorganized, inattentive staff. Over dressed and over seasoned from the Bloody Marys to the seafood. Gordon Ramsey should be waiting for an opportunity to save this place.

Had a bloody which I would rate as Good. For lunch ate the grilled Mahi sandwich. Very tasty and moderately spicy. Excellent service by Darrayl. There was an added aroma in the area, similar to skunk. But then again it's practically everywhere in NOLA. HAHA Also nice view of the Mississippi.
