Touristy restaurant but good quality food. Good service. Normal price range for area. Great fried green tomatoes w/ shrimp! Worth a trip if you can get in.

We were a foursome and we had just disembarked our cruise ship in New Orleans, after our cruise in the Caribbean. We had a few hours to kill, before catching our flight back to California. Being hungry, we asked a local worker if he could recommend a good place to eat, that was close by? He gave us directions to... More

We had stopped by briefly the night before and had a quick drink and liked the atmosphere and the bartender was engaging. So, we decided to return for dinner. Not a good choice. Our waiter was completely overwhelmed, and he appeared to have a serious inability to focus. He was often more interested in trying to talk to us than... More

Authentic Cajun food, for very decent prices. Lines can be long, but the wait is very worthy. Nothing pretentious here, just good food.

We lucked out and got a table right away, had 2 delicious cocktails, and ordered the chicken jambalaya and fried catfish- both delicious! The atmosphere was great and the service was fast and friendly! I'd go back and recommend!

We were waiting for our table at NOLA's (should have eaten here) and just stopped in for drinks. Had a great chat with the bartender who filled us in on the history of the place and created some delicious cocktails. Great atmosphere and service-- will return for a meal next time we are in New Orleans.

We were hungry and were encouraged to step in by one of the waitresses (it was early afternoon and the place was quiet). We had our first Cajun food experience and had the typicals, i.e., Jambalaya, Gumbo, and Shrimp and Grits. The food was good, especially the shrimp dish. The prices are reasonable and the service was very friendly and... More
