Wonderful BBQ Shrimp Po Boy!

I've had two meals at the Bourbon House (albeit ten years apart). I was a poor college student on my first visit, and I remembered thinking "yikes, the prices!", but the experience left a good impression and it was always in the back of my mind to return. Funny how being gainfully employed makes... read more

Really loved the food and Burbon selection! Nice wait staff. Wish the atmosphere was a little more authentic NO. The food and drink won't disappoint but atmosphere needs work...random things stacked in weird places.

On a recent visit back to New Orleans and after a long day of tramping around the city and the French Quarter my wife and I just wanted a light dinner to cap off the day and decided to try Bourbon House. This is a very nice restaurant at the far end of Bourbon Street with a great atmosphere. The... More

Maybe its just America, but there were TV's everywhere which ruined the experience. Not good for Veggies but the only veggie starter, red bean hummus, was nice and was big enough to be a main.

Sit at the oyster bar, you will be glad you did! It is entertaining to watch the staff prepare the oysters while you wait on your food. I had the fried oyster and gulf shrimp combo which was DELICIOUS! Defiantly will be back next time I am in the NOLA!

The breakfast menu presents an ambitious selection but was not really worth it for a couple who just like coffee and eggs in the AM. The dinner however was superb. The emphasis is on sea food. I had the scallops and my husband enjoyed the alligator sausage followed by catfish, We sat at a table overlooking the street and enjoyed... More

The breakfast was wonderful and the service great. The dinner was wonderful, had the seafood gumbo, crab cake, and crab lasagna. The crab lasagna was just okay, the spinach taste was too much for me. It's good that they allowed full menu in the bar area, but that server was not as nice. I highly recommend.

Really loved my visit here and will definitely come again next time I'm in town. We ordered a bottle of wine and an assortment of things to nibble on. Charbroiled oysters, crab fingers, tomato bisque, a cucumber salad.....everything was divine. I loved the atmosphere; clean, classy, jazzy, wonderful New Orleans feel. It was a step up from the many hole... More

Where to eat in the French Quarter? You'll get a lot of recommendations, but make sure you put Bourbon House high up the list. It's unpretentious, fine dining on Bourbon Street. You can sit at the bar and sip a whiskey - their selection covers casual whiskey drinkers and connoisseurs alike. You can site at the oyster bar and watch... More

We were hot and tired, so we ended up at Bourbon House which was close to the entrance of Bourbon Street. It's a beautiful restaurant with a lot of wrought iron all over. The food was OK -- more like blah. We ordered the Cobb Salad, shrimp po' boy and a breakfast. There are better restaurants in Nola (and other... More
