Good food, small selection

The prices were high, but you are in a tourist area. You must try the bread pudding!! YUM. For a port city with fresh seafood available, I thought the selection could have been better but the food was good. With all the restaurants around, I would not return.

Ate here twice while in New Orleans. They have The Best char-grilled oysters! This is a local favorite! Tons of food prepared well. Any seafood combo platter can easily be shared by two. They offer fried or grilled platters. I had the fried, not greasy and heavy at all. Quick fried the fish remains light and juicy.

Being from the Midwest I was looking for some seafood while in New Orleans. This restaurant was recommended to us at the hotel and it far exceeded our expectations. Had a long wait but it was worth it.

A unique experience. We went there Saturday night, but the wait to be seated was going to be well over an hour; we were too hungry for that, so we came back Sunday night, prepared for the wait. They gave us a buzzer and we walked over to Bourbon Street and absorbed some street music, then back to Deanie's. The... More

First of all, I must give kudos to Deanie's for working to find room for our group of around 60 to be able to eat together on short notice. They got tables together and as another would become available in the area they put us, they would clean it and have others from our group seated there. My husband ordered... More

A mouse ran by our table last week while eating dinner. The staff started screaming while diners were speechless. The bill still came. Not impressed

Our first restaurant stop in NOLA, recommended by a staff member at our hotel. Food was delicious, although a little greasy and too many deep-fried options for our taste. Portions are large, so arrive hungry. Drinks were tasty, and again, great sizes. High-quality service. Reasonable prices. We personally wouldn't visit again having eaten there once, but did enjoy our visit... More

Both my husband and I ordered the fried soft shell dinner. Both of us are from south Louisiana, so we know well prepared soft shell crabs. These did not disappoint. The french fries, though we asked for crispy, could have been cooked a little more. The cole slaw was neither sweet or vinegary. The service was professional, around when you... More

Had to try a Hurricane while waiting for our table. Lots of rum so one of those drinks thtt would creep up on you. We had an appetizer that was baked potatoes boiled in spicy water. Most unusual and very delicious. My husband had stuffed flounder and I had BBQ shrimp pasta. Definitely recommend.
