It's all about the frozen bourbon milk punch!

I ate lunch at this restaurant several times as I was attending a conference in the adjoining hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The meals were good, but the frozen bourbon milk punch was divine! There's a smaller size which is the perfect little dessert. I loved it so much I tried... read more

Original destination was Acme Oyster House but after seeing a ridiculously huge line & an oyster truck delivering the same oysters to every restaurant on the street, we opted for the Bourbon Grill. Ordered the Charbroiled Oysters with Crawfish.....one of the best things my husband & I have ever eaten in our lives. We went back a few nights later... More

The service at this restaurant was excellent. I had the roast chicken and it outstanding. It was the best meal I had during my short stay in New Orleans. One star knocked off for the drink. Even though I am a light weight, it felt like a virgin.

The Bourbon House is a charming staple in the middle of an other wise chaotic Bourbon St. They are known for a drink called the Bourbon Milk and it is absolutely DEVINE! If you like milkshakes this is right up your alley. Our server was Curtis and we were lucky enough to have him on both nights we dined here!... More

Went on the recommendation of a friend. The restraunt itself is lovely. However the food and service is really not on par with other similar frech quarter restraunts. Tried the sazerac and asked the waiter what exactly was in it he had no idea. It was the foulest thing I've ever tasted like NyQuil and ether in a hot glass... More

We both had the eggs benedict over crab cakes and they were delicious - no shells in the crabmeat which is always a big plus in our book! Our wait staff was delightful, the food arrived quickly, and it was a great atmosphere.

I enjoyed the food and the waitstaff but wasn't too happy with the hostesses. They just didn't seem friendly, they got snobby down pretty well though. With a lot of empty table by the window they wanted to seat us in the back. I frown on sitting anywhere near the entrance to a kitchen or busing area. When I asked... More

Acme is way to crowded and Felix's isn't fun anymore but right there on the corner is the Bourbon House. Sit at the bar and watch them shuck oyster, get a shrimp cocktail and the char broiled oysters.

We had been wanting to try the char grilled oysters we'd heard so much about. This was a great place to do that. EXCELLENT! Fantastic meal with a small batch bourbon flight, the oysters, scallops and braised pork chop. All were fantastic. I even got a little tourestie and had some gator boudin. Great service and wonderful food. It obviously... More

I was really looking forward to a wonderful meal with my husband, this was the only place in NOLA which disappointed me. First Open Table lost our reservation so we were not able to get the original time we planned to go. Then despite having a reservation, we were seated at a table next to the bathroom with no view,...
