We ate there twice during our stay. Food was good on both visit, but the service was way better on second visit. First night they were packed and we ended up eating at the bar due to 45 minute wait for table, service was average to slow at beast there. Second time was on a Tuesday and service was great...

Since we only had 2 days in New Orleans, we decided not to make plans for our first night. My husband wanted to get a T shirt from the Hard Rock ($32) and I was not impressed with the menu. The cashier recommended Deanie's and said that it is where all of the locals go. My husband is allergic to... More

What they do to the bbq shrimp (prawns) to make it so tasty, something approaching addiction, is amazing.

We ate here twice during our week in the French Quarter. The first was a week day lunch and I think we had the catch of the day - it was OK but not too memorable. We ordered out on a weekend though (the place was PACKED!, call ahead and bring it back to your hotel if you dont want... More

My husband and I shared the Half Seafood Platter and each got a cup of Seafood Gumbo. Finished the meal with their famous Bread Pudding. The gumbo was my favorite. We had food left over from the seafood platter, it was so much food. We would definitely recommend.

This place gives you so much good food you just can't eat it all, really good seafood platter and a decent price, you may have to wait a while, but we'll worth it.

Busy Friday night. Marathon weekend. Sat at the bar and had a wonderful dinner with Snyder the bartender as our host! The seafood was light and fresh and Snyder attentive and welcoming. Thanks!

if you are in NOLA, there is NO reason to eat average food. Seriously. So I will never understand why this place is so popular. The food is...meh. Overcooked fish, kind of bland in general, uninspired...meh. The portions are large, I'll give 'em that. You can do so much better than this place, though. And that would be my recommendation.
