Good Place for Lunch

The po-boys are large portions, easily big enough to share, but you may wish you hadn't. Nice French Quarter décor as well.

We came in to sample some local meals and got quit a selection. We had fried green tomatoes, alegator bites, a sample platter and bread pudding. The staff was great. We enjoyed Tha gayer and bread pudding the best.

Was walking through the city and stopped here for lunch. The environment is very rustic and inviting. The wait staff is very friendly and quick to act. I had the fried alligator and the Seafood pot pie. All I can say is the pot pie was totally amazing. You must try this place.

This was our second trip to the Original Pierre Maspero’s and it won’t be our last. There were four of us in our group and we all were return visitors. My wife had the fish po-boy and I had the BBQ shrimp. Both were excellent! We shared the seafood pistolettes; these were one of the best things we’ve had. Must... More

A friend told us we should have pistolettes while in New Orleans. We found them here and weren't disappointed. Liked them so much we went back another day.

Let me start by saying that my wife ate the shrimp and grits and says it is the best thing she has EVER eaten. I loved that the location is in a building from the 1700's. The history shows inside without the restaurant "feeling" old. The true standout here is the food. Very good crab cakes started our meal, but... More

Nice looking spot to duck into in the french quarter, and many people seem to love it. I'm not one of them and felt I should at least put my word out to be taken into consideration. the pros - nice french fries, sure it's basic but some do screw it up, good shrimp po-boy, but you can get as...

This place is so great! The building itself is steeped in history and is still the way it was way back in the days of Jean LaFitte. Even though it is open to the street, it was still cool and comfortable inside. We made a reservation for our group of ten. We got there before they had put the tables... More
