Found this place late one Saturday night after a few of the main restaurants were closed and just wanted something good to eat. Great food. Awesome really. And delicious drinks. It's more of a bar that serves a limited menu but everything we had was delicious. We started with their nachos and I loved their nachos. After that, we settled... More

The bar/restaurant is very casual and has plenty of TV screens to keep sports fans happy. Food was OK though not great. We had some wings (OK), creole shrimp (very good) and sandwiches (OK). Good option if you want somewhere a bit quieter than Bourbon St.

This little gem is just between Royal and Bourbon. Great bar and best burger and other NOLA food. It is clean and the prices are right and that's saying something. Bartender is fun and you will not be disappointed.

It's midnight and your room mate hasn't eaten since Vancouver- what a perfect place for a beer and quesadillas! In fact we went back again… We also liked the local colour!

Between the delay of our flight, the near 1 hour wait for a taxi at the airport, and ridiculous non-helpful service at our hotel, we were in pretty awful moods at 1am on a Friday night. The Copper Monkey helped out quite a bit with that. We were both starving, and what lured us in was the smell of fresh... More

So we both ate and drank excessively at this place! We were staying right next door and folks who consider ourselves, "semi-touristy", but do love a getting the real story from locals. Here is the place to do that. Great food - my I highly recommend the shrimp creole? Deelish! And the bartenders are great! Stop in if you're looking... More

Thing is, we came here by accident 2 years ago. Been back 4 times. You want creole\cajun, come here. The crawfish étouffée and shrimp creole are something out of heaven. It's simple, it's spicy, it's all you want. Been here a number of times, and can't get enough. I want everyone to have this experience. Not an excessive price, you... More

The bartender here was fantastic - he whipped up a couple of fun drinks for us, and his Bloody Mary had bacon in it! Plus, he told us some fun ghost stories of his own. It was perfect just to chill out and have a drink, with the ability to be able to still have a chat.
