Great shrimp and grits! The grits were in a patty form and deep fried the shrimp were tasty and the sauce was good. My daughter, not a seafood person, had the hamburger and ate every bite. We tried the crab claws for an appetizer and the were different. They were marinated and unique, not your typical crab claws. We ate... More

Being in town for Essencefest and being first-timers to New Orleans we went in search of somewhere to eat in the French Quarter. We chose this restaurant as it didn't have that sleazy look characteristic of other eateries on Bourbon Street. We were seated quickly...our waitress was pretty friendly. On perusal of the menu my husband and I chose the... More

Food was good but was a little slow but service was fine. Prices are consistent with the area. Pretty busy and loud but entertaining. I would recommend

Ate at this restaurant on our last day. Great food great service. Nice sized portions. I would definitely eat here again. We ordered the salads they were nice sized and awesome. We also ordered a steak and fried shrimp platter. There were four of us. We had enough to split with our two teenage daughters. The bathrooms were really clean... More

Watch out for gratuity added. It seems that when the servers know they're getting a tip regardless of service, you don't get great service. We couldn't get our drinks refilled and service was very slow. Food was very good but the poor service will keep us from going back.

We sat at the bar while waiting for a table on the outside balcony. We had a couple of cold cocktails and a couple dozen oysters, which were some of the best I've had. The bartender was great. We went to our table and had a great view of Bourbon Street and the crowds below. A tip, get there early... More

I visited Pier 424 last evening. I friend and ate here and it was not very good to me. I had the fish seafood platter. Everything was fried hard and did not fast fresh. The hush puppies were hard as a rock and the calamari was definitely not appealing to my palate. For the price and everything it definitely was... More

We stopped by on a Tuesday a little after lunch. We sat at the bar. The atmosphere was casual and low-key, but the food was upscale. We had a dozen oysters, sweet and spicy shrimp skewers, and the blackened ahi tuna. Everything we ate was amazing. Our bartender, Garrett, was very helpful with drink selections. We wanted to try local... More

Sat up on the balcony. Always nice to have a view of the masses below. We had a beer and a house drink which was good and a couple of appetizers. Fried truffle mushrooms and seafood basket. Both were good. The batter was very light and crispy. Our waiter, Aaron, we could tell was a little overwhelmed due to also... More
