So Yum!

All the food was so yummy! From the potatoes they give you where most other places would give you bread, to the craw fish to the shrimp po boy to the drinks!

This was the second time we have eaten at Deanie's. The last time we ate there, we had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. The food was so good we had to go back there this trip. This time there was a difference. The wait was two hours. The food was so good, it was worth the... More

I was very disappointed. First the hostess Monique was very rude..she seriously doesn't need to host any restaurant! Thought the seafood would be out of this world. Really had no seasoning or much taste. I ordered the seafood platter half. They did change my meal, gave me some more potatoes which was awesome but I ordered broiled shrimp and it... More

Took a ride to eat some boil seafood with friends. Heard so much about this restaurant that maybe my expectations were too high. The quality was good but the quantity was average and prices were high. First tie and probably last time I will buy boiled seafood at a restaurant.

Stopped in for a late lunch...slight wait for a table but not bad. Food was good and had planned to try a few other things but couldnt track down waitress...next thing I know she was slapping our check down on the table...guess we were done lol. Food that we did try was pretty average...nothin remarkable. Definitely better places for seafood.

It was dinner time right before a Saint's game, so there was a 45 minute wait but that was the only con. We ended up sitting at the bar. The Atmosphere was rustic and colorful. The bartender was awesome, great service and conversation and friendly. We ordered bbq shrimp and chargrilled oysters. To DIE for!!!

The food here is fantastic & you get lots of it for the money. Couple months ago when in New Orleans we ate both lunch & dinner there. Their boiled shrimp is to die for!!! Fresh out of the crab boil & to your table. The onions rings are the best I have ever had!

One of my must go restaurants when I visit NOLA. The crab platter is too much food, but tastes great. Everything that I've ordered there has been my favorites: raw oysters, fried softshell crab, gumbo, and etoufee. I'm going to be honest and tell you I've never had their desserts here because I never make room for it.

We decided to visit this place on our last night here and so glad we did. The place was filling up fast, but we were seated at the bar until a table became available. We were told the wait would be 45 minutes, but we no sooner sat down and ordered our drinks when our table became available. It couldn't... More

Our concierge recommended Deanie's based solely on the complimentary buttered, boiled red potatoes they serve before your meal. She sold us, and Deanie's didn't disappoint. We walked in and were seated at the bar immediately. Our server was friendly and made great libations. Our food was served to us in minutes. I enjoyed the Crawfish Etouffee, side salad, and their...
