Went there for dinner on the recommendation of a friend and the service was TERRIBLE. It was a Sunday early evening and the place was half full. We were seated promptly and was told a server would be right with us. After 12 minutes of waiting and watching the tables around us be served, I finally asked if anyone was... More

Ate here September 13th...food was pretty good and the place was packed. My friend and I each had 2 Hurricanes (48 dollar liquor tab) and there was NO liquor in them. Very disappointing! Also, the flounder had a ton of bones in it, so only ate half of it. :(

We heard several people on a tour we were on recommending Deanie's, so we decided to give it a try with 2 of my coworkers. There were 4 of us total. We were seated quickly, but the table seemed kind of small for 4 people, especially with the portion/plate sizes for the entrees. Our waitress was very good, attentive and... More

We have been having a great trip to New Orleans. We had, however been a little disappointed in some of the dining experiences. Well, an extremely nice couple from Baton Rouge just walking on the street and they recommended Deanie's. Well, the Half Seafood Platter was enormous, but it was not the amount that was incredible, but it was the... More

For New Orleans, the food was ok but nothing spectacular and considering other restaurants in the area, the portions were small. The atmosphere is nice & the venue is large but I was a bit disappointed in the food. There are better places to eat.

Deanie's in the French Quarter is a great place to sit and relax for lunch. Great Po' Boy sandwiches (try the fried oysters), huge onion rings, and a good bar. Just a block off of Canal Street.

Make time to eat at Deanie's during your visit to NOLA. The portions are huge and always seen to be fresh. Recommend anything fried. It is always crowded and noisy but worth the wait.
