The best part of our meal was the oyster appetizer. We had oysters with crawfish meat, garlic butter, broiled. Big and delicious oysters. For an entree we had the gumbo which was good and loaded with shrimp. The pecan catfish was nothing exciting but very edible. Their bourbon shake is rich and heavy. Only get this if you are still...

Wanted to go to the famous Acme Oyster house for dinner. When we got there it was closed for a private party. Went next door and discovered Bourbon House restaurant. Glad we did. The service was great, the food was delicious. Went with both baked and raw oysters for an appetizer. Very fresh. For the main course, had the steak... More

If you want a table in the fine dining room there can be a long wait. We were told it would be over 30 minutes to receive a text message telling us our table was available. Instead of waiting we found a table in the bar area quickly, the restaurant was very busy. We had 3 different servers to finalize... More

We went for lunch and the sandwiches offered some of the usual, but the shrimp po-boy is a bit different with a spicy brown gravy in a nice crusty roll. The portions are huge - I ate 1/2 and then dug the ample pile of shrimp out of the roll and ate just them. The restaurant is just up from... More

Had a delicious light dinner (yes, it's possible to that in New Orleans). Had the crab and corn soup to start, and it was more of a broth-based, with just enough kick. As an entree, had the truffled seafood salad, featuring Gulf seafood and vegetables dressed in a lemon truffled vinaigrette. Wonderful! Service was excellent, and the atmosphere is lovely.

We ended up at the Bourbon House by default. We actually intended to visit another restaurant in the French Quarter, but when we arrived there we found a line that stretched for almost a block. I'm sorry, but there are so many good restaurants in the French Quarter area that its just not worth standing in line for 30-45 minutes... More

We needed a table of 8 and were seated in less than 15 minutes on Saturday night! Service was great. Shrimp Creole was awesome! You have to try the Pecan pie!
