Alone on a business trip with only 30 minutes for lunch, I dropped by Bourbon House on Bourbon Street and sat at the oyster bar. Following in my tradition of ordering the "signature" dish at new restaurants, I decided to try "Our Signature BBQ Shrimp Po' Boy " even though I was dreaming of raw oysters as I watched a... More

This restaurant has consistently great food. It keeps me coming back. I had the corn and crab soup. It was served with fresh, still warm french bread. It was so delicious. The combination is perfect. I sat at the bar and watched the oysters getting shucked. The bar tender and Oyster Shucker are a great team at making patrons feel... More

Enjoyed a wonderful meal with a group of colleagues! Service was wonderful for a group of 12, plus the great seafood recipes and ambience made evening perfect. Blackened Gulf Fish was perfectly cooked, as was the crab and corn soup! A Bourbon Coffee was a perfect end to the meal!

Our group of four had dinner at Bourbon House, each ordering a different item from the menu. I had the crab crusted fish. It was very good but not something that fired my imagination. My wife had the petit filets. She says it was about the best steak she has ever eaten, juicy and tender with a wonderful flavor, something... More

We went there for both a pre-dinner appetizer, and lunch a few days later. The oysters were the best I've ever had. They were massive! Went for lunch a few days later and had a great poboy. Definitely worth checking out!

The atmosphere was great but the service was lacking in the beginning during the drinks ordering part and improved during the appetizers and finally better for the main course and desert. The food was excellent, but don't order the calamari is not worth it.

Attended a customer dinner and was very happy with the place. The bar has a nice bourbon selection -- not the best, but better than most. Had boudin balls and grilled oysters for appetizers -- both were great. Followed up with the Duck -- it was prepared perfectly and very good. Had the pecan pie for dessert -- good but... More

Seating was slow, service was slow and the food was average. My husband's duck was good, the cheese grits were amazing. My veal tasted like the flour breading, the smashed potatoes were in-eatable.Try the Bourbon Milk, it's excellent!!!

Great seafood and better drinks. The milk punch was very good. It also is a good place for oysters. It's also provides a nice location to escape the craziness of Bourbon Street
