We go here every time we're in New Orleans to have breakfast. We haven't had to wait but if you do, it's worth the wait. We had omelets that are huge and so wonderful. The service received is always so very friendly and fun. Leon was our waiter who has been there for 13 years so very great making our... More

We actually went to the grill for breakfast on two separate occasions. The eggs were very good, but the waffles were absolutely delicious! The prices are reasonable. The place itself is a bit dumpy looking. We went to the newer restaurant which was only four years old, but looked much older. I'm not talking about décor, sitting on stools with... More

Basic finer menu. Stools at counter seating. A wait to be seated. But, wow! Incredible owlets, pancakes, milkshakes and waffles. Told it is good for lunch too. What fun!

We went for lunch last Friday to the Carrollton location, and we had a blast, the food was good. I had a mushroom hamburger, forgot the name of it, and the entertainment they gave us was something else. I will definetely be back on my next trip to NOLA.

I'm from New Orleans (disclaimer). I heard about this place, had never been. Wanted something different , so we drove here. It was around 12 noon. There was not a line, but when we got in. It was packed. We had to wait for about 30 min. During the wait I was exited. Looking forward to good FOOD. Once seated... More

We recently had breakfast at the Camellia Grill. The waiters are a hoot and have a great time with the guests. They are a happy bunch. The food was very standard breakfast fare (eggs, toast, bacon, waffles, etc.) and nothing really stood out as great or over the top. I give the waiters five stars, but the food a 3.

We were on our way to the airport in mid afternoon and stopped at the Camelia Grill. There was no waiting and we got right in and received the full treatment. It took us a bit to realize what was going on before we realized the waiters wanted you to have fun there. And then there was that fabulous diner... More

Great little authentic diner experience in the garden district. Be prepared to be entertained by the great waiters. Go as much for the great food as you do the experience of the waiters. Definitely a must do in New Orleans!

The omelets aren't quite as massive as I remember them and my fries were not served well-done like I ordered them but it was still the same great experience that I've come to expect at Camellia Grill. The BEST, most entertaining service in the city. And yes, we had pecan AND pecan-chocolate pie with ice cream. All is well with... More

My hubby and I stopped at this place for a league lunch. He had the Hickman burger and I had the Buckeye. We shared a large order of chili cheese fries and was all good food. The service was excellent and super friendly. Our easier was very attentive and talkative/informative about places to visit while we visited New Orleans. We... More
