Excellent choice for late lunch

Our group of 5 women stopped here for a late lunch and cocktails. Our servers were friendly and attentive. Bread was placed on the table as soon as we were seated. We ordered cocktails and they were fresh and different from your usual cocktail menu. My favorite was the Augusta Club. We... read more

Located at the entrance to Bourbon Street, this restaurant is definitely the beneficiary of location, location, location. We had crab cakes, oyster bisque, a wedge salad, and combination seafood platter. Our experience was ruined by two major events. First, the restaurant has very little control of the dining room. The result was a party of heavily intoxicated people sitting next... More

If you are not raw oyster fan th e broiled oysters are great. The fish on the half shell is broiled from below to make the skin rigid and the seasoned fish fkakes off the top. Really good.

Walked into Bourbon House after being intimidated by the lines outside Felix's and Acme. No lines or wait here. Ok, yes, that should have been a red flag, but this place has Brennan's name on it, so we assumed a standard. Hmm. The front-of-house was so friendly and effective and the escort to our table set a high expectation for... More

Best meal this week. Everyone was raving about the oysters. I do not like oysters so I had the Blackened Fish on the night with potato pancake and a salsa. Dessert was Pecan pie YUM! But the biggest hitter for me was the Frozen Milk Punch. It was a milkshake with Bourbon. Service was excellent! Highly recommend reservations. We walked... More

We found this Gem during the New Orleans Festival, trying to dodge the afternoon rains. Going thru the main entrance, the lobby bar was pretty full. Unpon asking, we were directed to another Bourbon Bar, passing thru the dining room and next to or adourning The Crown Plaze Hotel. Wow, the bartender was very knowledgable and the Barrel aged Manahattens... More

We walked in about 6:00 on a Tuesday night and were seated immediately. We started with frozen bourbon milk punch which was much like a milk shake with a bourbon kick. So good, we ordered another. We also had the charbroiled oysters which were very smoky and flavorful. Our entrees were also delicious,sea scallops and blackened gulf fish. We split... More

We had a hour wait and was disappointed with everything. Our drinks stayed empty and the food was average. We won't go back again. If you want oysters go next door to Acme Oyster House.

We had a tasty lunch at this beautiful restaurant in the heart of the French Quarter! As my wife and I had plans for dinner already lined up that day, we decided to stop in for relatively light lunch options and glad we did. The menu was extensive with a wide range of choices available including regular salads, seafood salads,... More

As part of a large restaurant we were a little concerned dining here but liked the menu and heard many good things. The highlight was the food---delicious! Oysters were fresh and nicely presented. Swordfish was tasty and moist. Desserts to die for. The wait staff does move you thru fast but stops just long enough to converse. Recommend.
