The oysters were the best I have EVER had. I want some now. The boiled shrimp was too done and very hard to peel and the fried seafood platter was ok but not much flavor.

While in NOLA, we were looking for regional seafood dishes and saw several reviews for Deanie's. I had the crawfish 4 ways and was really pleased with my choice. The crawfish balls were a bit more spicy that I prefer, so I shared with my husband and he loved them. The crawfish Etouffee was wonderful...flavorful with an array of spices,... More

I really enjoyed Deanie's... AGAIN! I have come to Deanie's so many times, I have lost count. The food is always amazing. The service is great, and yes, like some of the other restaurants, you may have to wait on line if there is a big event in town, or if it is the weekend, but it is worth the... More

If you're in the mood for fried seafood, Deanie's is for you. The fried catfish was excellent. The salad with pecans and blue cheese was also amazing, and a nice break from the fried options. Service was good. Casual and good for families, and not expensive.

I was ready to be blown away from the reviews but I found it to be just like any other seafood restaurant. The staff was nice and food was decent but nothing to shout about.

Visited Deanies about a week ago and let me tell you I was impressed. The customer service was great, the portion sizes were overwhelming, and the food tasted delicious. U wont be disappointed. Also since this place is so popular, you may see a few celebrities. We sure did. :-)

We met a few friends in New Orleans and we decided to go to Deanie's for dinner. The place has great seafood at an excellent price! They offer a platter for less than $25.00 where four people could easily eat and be full. The seafood is fresh, the gumbo was good, however, the service was not the best. Location is... More

Located in French Quarter since 1961, I have enjoyed the restaurant since 1970. The ambience is much the same as a lot of the Quarter. The service is very good; but what makes it a favorite is red fish and cajun vegtables and spice. Draft beer is $4, and average meal is $22. I have never seen a celeb here;... More

I traveled with a friend for Essence Fest. This was my first time in NOLA, but she's been here a few times. Based on her recommendation, Deanie's was our first stop. There was a line so I knew this must be a great place if people were willing to wait. We were inside and seated in about 30 minutes. My... More
