I have drank a lot of Bloody Mary's in my day, but these are definitely the BEST in New Orleans! Staff are super friendly and quick with your order.

First time here, I really enjoyed it. It was lunch time and I hadn't had breakfast, but they were still serving breakfast so that's what I ordered. Cajun Omelet with alligator sausage was not only unique but very good. Must get the grits!

The building it's self has charm and character. Started with a Bloody Mary, it was super spicy and delish! Ordered shrimp and grits. Normal grits are not that great, but these were cheesy and addicting. The Mr. Had fried shrimp and fish. The fish was flaky and not too spicy, shrimp was so good! No desserts offered, no room anyway!!!

I usually dislike the taste of ALL seafood, but our waiter Patrick assured me that the meal would be to my liking. He was right! I had the best catfish of my life, and my wife ate the Cajun Meatloaf. We ate at several different FQ restaurants this weekend, and Pierre’s is the only one that we could not stop... More

We tried the Shrimp and Grits and were very happy. The dish was full of shrimp and the grits were creamy and so tasty. Our waitress explained that the grits had gruyere cheese and half and half in them. We asked for a Muffaletta to go to take on the plane home and they were happy to wrap it up... More

We went with some local friends to the Original Pierre Maspero's and had a very pleasant experience. The food was typical New Orleans fare, but it was all fresh and well prepared.

Great place for dinner -- we stopped in late since we were walking around the city for quite a while before we got hungry. We ordered the Jambalaya and the prime rib. DELICIOUS! Definitely stop in here for a great meal after a long day.
