Hostess seemed accommodating and allowed a male In our group to wear my cardigan around his shoulders. This rule is not noted on their website, yelp, or tripadvisor. After we received... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our swamp tour guide. I ordered the bbq shrimp appetizer and it was to die for! I should've quit after that but oh no...I had to order the crawfish quartet. It was delicious as well. My husband got the small seafood platter and seafood gumbo as an appetizer. All was very fresh and... More

IN ALL of the French Quarter. I just had the bbq shrimp and some crawfish here, they were just amazing!!! Came with a small loaf of NOLA's fine frenchbread to soak up all the goodness that the shrimp are soaked in. I love this place.

We ordered the Giant Seafood Platter. With 4 people we still brought food home! It's around $50.00 but well worth it. As with any restaurant, staff can be hit or miss. Overall, we were pleased. They also have the original location in Bucktown and have been there twice. It's a little more family-friendly and more laid back than the downtown... More

Not sure what all the hype around deanie's is about!! Its ok food (though definitely not the best sea food in NOLA) but it seems as if you're eating in a school cafeteria and you need to finish as quickly as possible so they can seat the next group..

Instead of table bread and butter, Deanie's offers a small plate of seemingly ordinary boiled potatoes and butter instead. Since I save my carbs for sweets, I passed them happily to my friends who dug right in and pronounced them delicious. I was thinking, what could be so delicious about boiled potatoes? I was curious so I had to try... More

Wonderful Cajun and Creole cuisine. Crawfish etoffe was delicious as was the seafood gumbo and my wife had grilled lobster in a terrific garlic sauce. I wouldn't there for it, but my grandson had a marvelous hamburger...go figure.
