The food and drinks are great at the Bourbon House. The set up of the service isn't to our liking though: one beverage waiter, one food waiter, one assistant that filled waters, and a trainee. All of them were very nice, knowledgeable, and helpful but it seemed there were still times we waited too long for drinks, appetizers, the bill,... More

We had a reservation for 7 girls and ordered 'family style.' We loved everything except the fries, they were over seasoned and very salty. Otherwise, service was spectacular, oysters were delicious, and the chocolate mouse dessert is to die for!! Highly recommend!!

We went to Bourbon House with a group of about 30. The restaurant was beautiful. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly. I had the barbecue shrimp. It was delicious!

My husband and I found ourselves at the Bourbon House on a recent business trip. We went after the lunch crowd. Around 3:00. The service wasn't the best in the world. But the waiters were nice. They seemed a little playful as if they were switching from lunch to dinner. The people watching off Bourbon Street was rather entertaining. My... More

Amazing food! Probably the best gumbo we had and the barbequed po boy was the BEST! Ridiculously good BBQ sauce. Rich, savory, sherry laced, I still can't stop thinking about it. Service was not on par with the food. Prompted, but not engaging. Not compared to other restaurants in the area.

We stayed at the Astor for a week and had breakfast here every day. The food was amazing! The service was not the speediest, but luckily we had plenty of time most days. They were just pretty laid back about everything. And it didn't matter which server we had, it was always slower than I would have expected. Got to... More

Went for a business dinner---the back of the restaurant has tablecloths and is a bit more dressy. Good food with lots of variety; I had the redfish which was excellent. Reasonable prices and good service. I love chocolate and even I had to admit that the chocolate dessert was extremely rich (but delicious!) My husband spoke with the manager about... More

Very busy fun place on Bourbon St but away from rowdy crowd. Wait staff acceptable but I was with a large group that is difficult. Food very good. Wine very good reasonable prices.

As much as I travel, I knew better than to stop somewhere on Bourbon to eat anything of quality. SO, its really my fault. BUT, a $30 plate of soggy fried food is NEVER an excuse. This place is WAY overpriced for the quality. We started off with calamari and the trio oysters. They might have been okay but by... More

Food at the Bourbon House was excellent. Fish was fresh and very well prepared - flaky and delicious! My wife had the redfish (house specialty) and I had red snapper - both were very well prepared and we each said we would have been fine with the other's meal! Ambiance - right on Bourbon Street - was also great. Price... More
