I had the crawfish quartet and it was not that good. Way to much starch and salt. Wife had the soup sampler and it was okay, also very salty. Both dishes were not very flavorful, we're a bit disappointed.

Visited here after seeing it on man v food and reading reviews. Was very disappointed indeed. The waiter was quite brash and rushed you into an order, with no real explanation of the food. We went for the imfamous fish platter (half size) and too say i was underwhelmed is an understatement. In fact we couldn't get out of there... More

Not a restaurant for a posh meal, but if you're looking for good food quality and portion size this place is worth a visit.

Average seafood. Great atmosphere. Could dress up and go there in the evening after a long day of tourist activities.

Went with my sister and nephew for lunch. Service was quick, courteous and friendly. Food was amazing! Usually restaurants bring bread before the meal but here at Deanie's they serve small red potatoes boiled in a seafood blend of spices and served with butter! It was wonderful! Will definitely go back!

Deanies is right in middle of French Quarters. Excellent location. Great service and the food was fantastic. We both had the shrimp. The dress code wasn't bad either. Some restaurants you have to have a sportcoat and tie. We like to be casual.

Great food and service first visit to Deanie's but will not be my last. There were six in our party and there was so much food no one could eat it all. We has a birthday in our group so we got to try the bread pudding and it was great

Went there for lunch on our first day in N.O. The waitress helped us pick out our food, and it was all good -- various seafood and gumbo-- of course. No complaints.
