Went to this restaurant with a local who was able to tell me the grocery store history of the building. Drinks were good. Alittle thrown off by the boiled potato appetizer but ate it anyway. Had the sampler platter with fried shrimp, catfish, oysters, and maybe something else. It was all great but could not finish it. I would go... More

The wait for a table is long (for good reason) but have a drink in the bar and wait. Service is super. Food is authentic and done extremely well. The broiled oysters---yum. I also had the stuffed shrimp with crab....oh my god..can I actually eat that much in one sitting. Great for family...everyone whatever their age or food persuasion can... More

Was there this past weekend. Had not tired them before. Overall pretty good. Clean modern restaurant so you do kind of loose the charm of some of the older more established ones in the Quarter. I had the crawfish quartet. The Crawfish au gratin made the whole meal. Can't wait to make it at home.

After two very expensive meals in New Orleans (Arnaud's & Commander's Palace), it was a bit of a relief to visit Deanie's Seafood in the French Quarter for excellent seafood and reasonable prices. Our waiter was very efficient and helpful! Deanie's was recommended by our B&B who told us "Deanie's is where all the locals go to eat!"

In doing research for my trip to New Orleans Deanie's was one of the places that was recommended by many people. The interior of the restaurant was very clean and spacious. The staff was awesome! I ordered the half seafood platter which is fried shrimp, catfish, oysters, softshell crab and crawfish dressing balls and fries. The portion size was more... More

The staff are very friendly and the menu has all you would expect from a NOLA restaurant. I am very picky about the bread on my po' boy, and their french bread was so crusty and delicious. Bravo! The prices are great and much lower than the rest of the French Quarter. Also, the place is huge, so you'll be... More

Deanie's was recommended to us by the bellman at our accommodations. We shared the crab nachos, a bowl of gumbo and the deep fried artichoke. Was a good variety to try and was lotsa food! Our waitress was very passionate about her job and was most helpful answering our menu questions. I will also say that the cucumber mojito was... More

Very casual but extremely popular with locals and tourists. If you want to try well cooked local dishes then this is your place. Also situated in a very buzzy area, therefore good to soak up the local atmosphere.

We were planning on going to Acme for dinner, but our cab driver directed us to Deannie's instead. Less of a wait, cheaper, and better food he told us. He was right on. We waited about 30 minutes, during which we enjoyed a beer in the bar. Once we were seated we had a fantastic cajun/seafood meal, and spent half... More
