Pretty good typical New Orleans food

Visited during lunch hour and the prices were pretty reasonable. The PoBoys were very filling for a half size. My friends and I literally were not hungry the entire day. The service was also quick and it took no time to get seated, which is not always typical here. I would visit again for basic New... read more

The food was... okay. Great gumbo but the stuffed shrimp entree tasted pretty much like a frozen dinner. Ambiance was non-existent... think Greek diner transplanted into the French Quarter.

OK food and service. Would not recommend to other travelers. I tried new food -crawfish étouffée. Good fried shrimp. No waiting.

My husband and I wanted some crawfish--we found this place on Yelp. It was definitely popular and busy. We sat at the bar and ordered 3 pounds of boiled crawfish. The flavor was excellent--not too spicy. We would get that again. A man next to us was eating barbecued shrimp and he highly recommended it--we'll try that next time. The... More

The Bucktown/Metairie location is really good, this one, not so much. They have quality issues. There was one shrimp in my Shrimp Remoulade that was so nasty looking that I couldn't eat it. And another one in the BBQ Shrimp that was so overcooked that it couldn't be peeled. They served a hoagie roll with the BBQ Shrimp, not french... More

Our concierge suggested this place, right across from the Hyatt. We had a short wait but found seating at the bar. Two people could share the combos, money have a lot of seafood. Our friends had the sampler and it was more than what they could eat

If you don't mind putting your name down and queueing for this family friendly seafood restaurant, that is neither pretentious nor overpriced then head down to Deanie's. Yes, there are more up market restaurants around, but Deanie's does a great job at serving up good, honest local fayre. We had good charbroiled oysters and BBQ shrimp in a fantastic spicy... More

I used to live in New Orleans and would always take visitors to the Deanies in Metarie. Everyone I took there, loved it. I was excited to see that they had a location in the French quartz that happened to be across the street from our hotel. This was the first time I took my husband and children. I had... More
