I had the shrimp Caesar salad and it's one of the best I've ever had! Shrimp was delicious and the dressing was perfect. They also have excellent bloody Mary's and very good service

Had dinner the last night in New Orleans. A perfect way to end our time in the French Quarter. Excellent service. The menu has something for everyone.

My husband had chicken and waffles and my son ordered... More

Sometimes difficult to get in to, but a great place to experience some unique sandwiches. Freindly service and this is a shop frequented by locals. Bar offerings are also great and coldest beer in Quarter.

We wanted a light lunch, and a local walked us to Pierre Maspero's. We sampled 3 appetizers (seafood pistolettes, seafood pot pie, and fried green tomatoes with shrimp remoulade). They were ALL superb, and we liked the plates clean!! We've added it to our "must eat" list!

We enjoyed two delicious early suppers at Pierre Maspaero's and I would highly recommend this restaurant which also happens to be an excellent value! Between the two of us, we tried the superb crab cakes appetizer and entrees of jambalaya and blackened drumfish.

I am not an expert on Shrimp and Grits, but I know that was some of the most amazing food I have ever eaten! My husband agreed. The atmosphere was historic and the staff was attentive and polite. We happened upon this place and were delighted!
