Nice meal - I had chicken and waffles and my husband had the seafood sampler. Everything was delicious along with the drinks. Bartender was very friendly and efficient.

Some co-workers told me this was a "can't miss" restaurant, and the were right! For dinner we ordered the spinach artichoke dip, blackened chicken Alfredo (new item), and crab cakes. We inhaled everything! My husband said they were the best crab cakes of the trip. Almost embarrassing how clean our plates were! Pricing is very reasonable, and customers were everywhere... More

First off, when ever we are in the city, we always try to eat/dine some place different. After shopping at a few of our favorite stores, we decided on Pierre Maspero's for lunch. Both my son and I had the shrimp po-boy's. No matter the type one gets, this sandwich is always plentiful and filling. We both had to eat... More

The meal was cheap and tasty, it seamed like proper authentic creole and the service was friendly and attentive. We would recommend this as a straight forward option

Didn't have to wait for a table. Waitress was friendly and efficient. Hostess kinda sucked but it is what it is, she wouldn't keep me from going back. Po Boys were excellent! Also had spinach dip and didn't have to even ask the waitress for more bread or drinks or anything. Very pleased and some of the best food!

My friends and I happened upon this restaurant after we were unable to go to an originally planned restaurant and we were not disappointed. We all had different dishes and all were excellent. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The po boy options are great.
