Away from the craziness but close enough

Great place to get away from the craziness, yet close enough to get right back into it. Affordable drinks and nice atmosphere.

Right in The French Quarter. Shrimp Etouffe was absolutely delicious! Great atmosphere and good selection of draught beers.

The services was great, the location was quaint, and the burgers were unbelievable! The street location was tucked away from the riff raft but still local in style. The prices were great!

After eating fish for 3 nights needed a good burger. Found it here. Great small bar to get away from the loud noisy bars of Bourbon st. Take a break and go here.

My husband and I love to visit this place when we're there! They have anything you could want after a night of drinking. My husband loves the steak quesadillas and I like pretty much everything else!

You MUST go here. Their food is incredible - great drinks and ambience - we found this place at the recommendation of the staff at our hotel and it quickly became our favorite of the trip! The catfish po-boy is the absolute best we've ever had, bar none. The Monkey Buns (banana-filled beignets) are out of this world. And they... More

We stopped in here for dinner on our first night in New Orleans and were not disappointed! Our food was fantastic --from the red beans and rice, crawfish etouffee to the shrimp creole. Excellent and friendly service. Make sure to try one of their banana biegnets--they were scrumptious. We were very happy with our visit here!!

We arrived after it gets really crazy on Bourbon Street, but, ohhhhh, the po boys. I had a grilled shrimp. The shrimp was firm and made to perfection. Slightly bland and will order it "hotter" next time. The bread was fresh and flavorful. It definitely enhanced the flavor. I will definitely come back here. It's just off Bourbon Street so... More

The drinks were great. The food had good flavor. It took forever to reach the table. The kitchen only seems capable of pushing out one meal at a time.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
