Quiet and cool . . .

. . . and that's just what I needed on a hot day after standing for hours in museums. I wanted a quiet place to rest my feet for a bit and have a cold drink. The bartender was very friendly and accommodating.

The most amazing catfish Po boys and sweet potato fries EVER. Service was great and staff really care about the food and helpfully recommended their favourites. The peanut butter burger was pretty good too, but the fish was superb.

I visited the Copper Monkey one early evening whilst on holiday in New Orleans. I received a warm and affable greeting from Lorna, who knew a lot about my part of the world, which was nice. I had a bowl of the very reasonably priced jalapeño poppers, which were very good, and filled me up for the remainder of the... More

I ate here several times, everything on the menu is great. Good selection of beer on tap, and if you're brave enough to try it, the abstinethe (sp?) process is a great experience. In the Quarter, but not a wild touristy place, just cold drinks and great food.

After walking around the French Quarter we were hungry and not interested in waiting in a line. The Copper Monkey was the first place we came to that offered immediate seating. The menu was small but offered burgers and bites. The food was very basic--I ordered the grilled cheese sandwich, which was just two slices of American cheese on toasted... More

Came by for a quick bite to eat. The brunette ponytail bartender was so rude and unaccommodating that it kind of turned our course around. We ordered food and it was good. Had the grilled cheese and the gumbo. Very good food in N.O. Just couldn't get over how rude the bartender was. Make sure she's not there before you... More

Had lunch at this place on Bourben St. Small bar with about 6 tables. I had a bowl of Jambalaya and my wife had a sandwich with fries and we shared a salad. The portions were generous and the food was delicious. The waitress was very pleasant and efficient. I would recommend the Copper Monkey.

The Copper Monkey is a great place to stop for a drink. Lorna is a friendly bartender who know her way around the French Quarter. The crowd seems to be mostly locals so you can always get a tip about where to go.

This place was recommended by a couple locals as a good place for booze and solid local food and an engaging, though ballsy staff. It lived up to the recommendations and then some. Though definitely not for the "starched tablecloth and white napkin" crowd, it was a breath of fresh air in an otherwise tourist-trap infested area of the French... More
