Strange location, with a mix of 80s diner and old style restaurant. We waited 45 minutes, as said by the waiter, but in the meantime you can join the bar and enjoy free wifi connection.

We dined after the lunch menu was over but before the dinner rush began. We had a catfish police`boy and a crawfish police`boy very nice and less expensive than other popular`boy purveyors nearby.

We stopped in for dinner before a concert at the Saenger. We were told 25 minutes to get a table for 5. In 10 minutes we were seated. Poboys all around made from either catfish, shrimp or crawfish. All were excellent. If you get fries share an order. Just too much food for one person with a poboy. We had... More

Good if you like tasty red potatoes pre-meal. Average food. From the outside it appears to be a nicer the of eatery, but it isn't as nice as the better places to eat throughout the French Quarter.

We were there Essence weekend. The food was awesome as usual! Great food! Great food! However, the experience this go-round, was horrible. The service sucked! Normally, I would attribute it to being a holiday weekend. That's when you bring you 'A' game. The manager was a complete jerk that night. My friend and I traded with another group so that... More

Visited this during a first trip to NOLA, based on friend recommendations. So glad we did. Restaurant is professionally run by exceptional wait staff. They are very knowledgeable about food preparation, appetite matches, patron favorites, bang for the buck etc. The servings are enormous and cooked to perfection. Try the barbecue shrimp!!

Looking for a place for boiled crawfish..tried Deanies because it was close. They were out of crawfish. No drink menu which was disappointing for it being a New Orleans establishment seeing as libations are part of the experience. When I asked the waiter what Gin based drink he could recommended he said he's ask the bartender. ..15 minutes later he... More

Deanie's is a casual restaurant specializing in seafood. It is great for families, as they large tables and fast service. They do have a kid's menu- just ask your wait staff. It is hard to find on the vast menu, but they have crawfish and shrimp by the pound: just peel and enjoy!

Best place we ate in New Orleans. The seafood was cooked perfectly and wonderfully delicious. Platters were large and piled high.

The char grilled oysters are a must! Could have just made a meal of those things, along with the boiled redskin potatoes. The crab stuffed shrimp were good, but couldn't hold a light to the oysters.
