Charbroiled Oysters were to die for!

Visited this fine establishment June 6, 2015 on a trip to NOLA with the family. Decided to go there because of the great reviews on trip advisor. We started with the Charbroiled oysters and they were beyond awesome! I've never had oysters any way but fried and never really cared for them but was... read more

Great Bourbon Milk drink and some of the best Barbeque Oysters I have had. Tried it with both crawfish and lump crab. Absolutely awesome.

We tried this restaurant for lunch after walking the French Quarter. It is a very nice restaurant with an excellent staff. My wife had the crab cakes and liked it though it wasn't exceptional. I had the shrimp and corn salad with an Iceberg wedge. The shrimp and corn salad was very good with enough shrimp to last until the... More

We visited the Bourbon House for dinner and it was fantastic!!! They get their name from the excellent selection of bourbons and I highly recommend that you enjoy a sample or two. Great atmosphere and a tremendous staff this is a must visit. For elegant dining and not so elegant prices, you won't be disappointed.

I tend to have the same thing when I eat here. The menu doesn't really encourage exploration. I like their fried seafood and it's what I usually order. I also prefer the restaurant a little later at night, when it's not so crowded. I've had good business dinners here.

The Bourbon House was a last minute dinner, and overall, it was tasty. My husband swooned over the scallop entree, and the Bourbon Milk Punch was amazing. They do offer gluten-free selections, but the kitchen put regular bread directly on top of my meal, which was frustrating as I have celiac disease--no can do. They immediately corrected it, but overall,... More

Great, one of our best meals in NOLA! Sat at the oyster bar and chatted with the shuckers and ate dinner. Well worth it. Blackened red fish was awesome. Great oysters.

Chargrilled oysters were small ( how I like) and tasty. Shrimp creole was fresh and had just the right amount of spice. Large group was a challenge for the staff, but they were always gracious and pleasant.

If you want to experience classic southern hospitality and service this is the place for you. The service was impeccable, the decor is inviting and the food was great too! Our server made some great recommendations for food and drink—we aren't bourbon drinkers, but that did not matter! Leave room for desert. You won't be disappointed!

I visited the restaurant with several co-workers during a recent conference. Even though there were 6 of us and we arrived at about 6:30, they accommodated us quickly. We had two servers - one was primarily for drinks and the other for food. This got a little confusing as we needed refills on drinks but ended up flagging down someone... More
