It was dinner time right before a Saint's game, so there was a 45 minute wait but that was the only con. We ended up sitting at the bar. The Atmosphere was rustic and colorful. The bartender was awesome, great service and conversation and friendly. We ordered bbq shrimp and chargrilled oysters. To DIE for!!!

The food here is fantastic & you get lots of it for the money. Couple months ago when in New Orleans we ate both lunch & dinner there. Their boiled shrimp is to die for!!! Fresh out of the crab boil & to your table. The onions rings are the best I have ever had!

One of my must go restaurants when I visit NOLA. The crab platter is too much food, but tastes great. Everything that I've ordered there has been my favorites: raw oysters, fried softshell crab, gumbo, and etoufee. I'm going to be honest and tell you I've never had their desserts here because I never make room for it.

We decided to visit this place on our last night here and so glad we did. The place was filling up fast, but we were seated at the bar until a table became available. We were told the wait would be 45 minutes, but we no sooner sat down and ordered our drinks when our table became available. It couldn't... More

Our concierge recommended Deanie's based solely on the complimentary buttered, boiled red potatoes they serve before your meal. She sold us, and Deanie's didn't disappoint. We walked in and were seated at the bar immediately. Our server was friendly and made great libations. Our food was served to us in minutes. I enjoyed the Crawfish Etouffee, side salad, and their...

Barbecue Shrimp and Pasta was delicious, combo platter with Catfish & Shrimp was also delicious! Both had good flavor and well worth the price! Coconut Bread Pudding was the best I've ever had!

My wife and I dined here last night and were extremely disappointed. After waiting 45mins as it was busy, we were seated and not seen to for at least 10 mins then waited another 10mins before our order was taken. We ordered the fresh seafood platter which has no mention of being deep fried as other meals on the menu... More

NewcastleVon, We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your experience during a recent visit to our restaurant. We are best known for serving our signature Fried Seafood Platter, which is one of our top sellers, so we took a look and realized you're right - our menu does say "fresh seafood" (which also is true) rather than fried....

The building doesn't do this place justice! Great food, service and drinks. Not pricy at all. And be prepared to talk to your table neighbors 😁 everyone just kinda talks to each other and it's great.

The restaurant itself is light and inviting not dark like some places. The restaurant, including the restrooms, was nice and clean. There was a long wait but we managed to grab a table by the bar area. The serving size was generous and the flavors were not bad. My experience here is somewhat tainted by the service.
