Got the half seafood platter and gumbo. I loved the red boiled potatoes with cajun seasoning that came out instead of a bread basket, but couldn't figure out if they were supposed to be hot or if they were indeed supposed to be cold. Did not care for the crawfish dressing balls on the platter, but everything else was good... More

If your in the French quarter and want some good food without the noise and smell, then come here. We walked right in and sat at the bar. The food is a bit pricey but they give you huge portions. Bartender also gave us some complimentary baked new potatoes while we waited. Friendly staff and the place was very clean... More

I had eaten here before, not during the Essence Festival and it was a much better experience then. There was a long line and wait to get in. The food was good but not worth the wait. Our server was good and prompt.

After waiting 45 minutes without a place to sit or a place available at the bar we were very hungry. The gumbo for appetiser was a great choice and was very tasty. Everything else left a bad taste in our mouths. Extremely noisy, so many staff wandering around doing not much, definitely not serving you...For mains the craw fish quartet... More

A great place for seafood! There is nothing like the fried seafood platter at Deanies - Shrimp, crawfish, oysters, catfish, and soft shell crabs. They have some good beer on tap and a nice bar. They are always busy and at times can be slow. I prefer the Deanies in Bucktown! A great place for a meal with some friends.

Thank you for sharing! It’s easy to see why our seafood platters are the most popular item on our menu! Who can resist heaping portions of the freshest fried Louisiana seafood? Our original location in Bucktown is special and is known for its quaint family atmosphere. We appreciate your business and hope you will visit us again soon. More

The BBQ shrimp were put of this world. The portions of the food was good, you will have left overs. The seafood platters was good but wasn't screaming with New Orleans flavors.

We go there every time we go to New Orleans. The food is always very good. We had the fish of the day grilled along with calamari and oysters. The oysters were huge. Our meal was very good and our server attentive.

We went to Deanie's June 25th 2014. The food was excellent. We definitely should have made a reservation because It was packed! We got our name on the list and had to wait over an hour. However, we made friends outside that were very friendly. We did end up snagging a bar seat instead so we didn't have to keep... More
