For two of us to have lunch and no alcoholic beverages, it was about $60 after tip. We ordered the Mardi Gras pasta which was really good. The crawfish in it was yummy, but that plate was $24. I'm sorry not worth it. We also had for $17 another pasta dish. I cannot remember the name but it had alligator... More

Stopped in for a bowl of gumbo. Initial service was fast. I'm not an expert, but like my gumbo to have some snap, some spice to it. this had none. Plenty of shrimp, but no spice. $10 for bowl and a tea. Nice spot right on Bourbon street. Like said, not bad, not great, just average.

This place is wonderful, love the food and it's on Bourbon Street. If you can request to sit in Ashley's area, she's quite a character !!!!!

We strolled Bourbon Street every night, and decided to try this restaurant about mid-week. Having thoroughly enjoyed Arnaud's Remoulade the night before, we wanted to have PoBoys, a New Orleans special sandwich. This place served them so we entered. We were seated upstairs overlooking the street, and ordered drinks and our items. I ordered the catfish poboy and my wife... More

Easy to find right on Bourbon street and super fast service. Ordered a shrimp po boy and it was ready before the street band outside finished a song! Po boy was awesome! Good value!

I read a lot of reviews that suggested BBQ Shrimp, so I tried them...People,I literally wanted to lick the bowl!! They are so good, with the right amount of kick!! My husband had the alligator fried and blackened and he said... More

The blackened chicken had a flavor unique to NOLA. Quite tasty and just the right "kick". We split a sandwich and each of us had a side of cole slaw. The generous servings were sufficient to fill us up. The p[lace was packed, but the service was good. Also, we noticed that the other patrons seemed to enjoy their entrees.

This was the first spot that I visited on Bourbon Street. It was conveniently located around the corner from my hotel. I had never been to New Orleans prior to my trip. So I had no other restaurant of which I could compare this spot. However, I have been to enough restaurants in my lifetime. I know when A spot... More
