Good but not great.

If you value value over deliciousness, then this is the place for you. The food was very good, but I wasn't blown away. This is more of a NOLA version of something like AppleBee's. In other words, it's very American in terms of flavour (e.g., the Cajun spices weren't particularly spicy) and in... read more

My friends and I enjoyed our dinner here. The menu had a nice variety and the food was delicious. Instead of bread, boiled seasoned red potatoes were served. That was a first for us--so good. The restaurant is located right in the French Quarter and very convenient to many hotels.

After a referral from a friend and looking at the reviews, I decided to try. My first impression was, considering the cost of most entrees ($20 and above), I expected good food. I ordered the flounder. It was described on the menu: Stuffed Flounder Crabmeat dressing sandwiched between two fresh flounder filets and broiled to perfection. Served with salad and... More

This place was across the street from our hotel & had been recommended from a friend that has lived in NOLA his whole life. The décor was not what I was expecting however...it looked like a 50's diner. We were waiting on promptly & our food came fast & hot. There was way more than I could ever have eaten...... More

Landed in NOLA,checked into our hotel, and went a block down for lunch here. Experienced my first Po'boy, Crawfish, as suggested by our excellent waiter Dylan. My wife had a salad. Both were more than fine, with quick, timely service that allowed us to eat and start touring. Special kudos to Dylan for allowing us to charge our dying cell... More

We had a separate room for our group - all aquaculture specialists! Service was spot on and food plentiful from a pre-organised set menu. Love the special potatoes that they serve seemingly instead of bread - cooked to perfection. It was all typical NOLA seafood fare and was very enjoyable. Of course not having the full menu range available to... More

Love Deanie's! Can't wait to go back to NOLA to eat here! Perfect for any meal! Got a diner vibe going but with booze! This is where the locals go for lunch, and it's perfect real Cajun food! Warning- one of the bartenders is ridiculously loud and highly irritating, she made us the most watered down Bloody Mary's known to... More

We visited Deanie's on our last trip and wanted to go there again. Seafood was still excellent. Highlights were the BBQ shrimp appetizer messy but good. Fresh craw fish also messy and the crab dressing balls. We did notice the the portion size went down on some of the large platters. Still a generous amount of food but not as... More

We waited to get in for about an hour. We decided to wait as we heard this as supposed to be one of the best. All started out great as the soup of the day was fantastic. However, our entree was another story. My husband had the stuffed crab. It was very mushy and there wasn't to much to be... More

This legendary diner was fun to visit. Not a bad line and prices were fair. We were expecting to get blown away by yumminess but it was just a typical good meal. It's not a place I'd have on my bucket list but if you're needing a place to sit down and have a good seafood dinner, this will work.... More
