The dive where you want everyone to know your name

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... read 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.

Decent food and a good variety of beers. Sound system music too loud at dinner (OK at lunch). Only one bartender to take food orders and serve drinks on a Saturday night - so slow service at dinner.

For a small dive bar, the food was really good. We had mozzarella sticks and grilled cheese sandwiches. Very tasty.

We were planning on dining next door at the Oceana, but decided to take a chance on the Copper Monkey based on TripAdvisor reviews. Bartender was very harried, so we are lucky to get a drink in the first 20 minutes. You need to know what you going to order, or expect to wait until she looks your way. And... More
