Tonight my husband and I dined at Bourbon House. It was our first visit. At first I was a little nervous, thinking we'd be turned away because we weren't dressed in upscale casual attire. However, we weren't turned away for wearing our casual outfits. Also, we arrived at the restaurant fifty minutes earlier than our reservation. The hostesses pleasantly accommodated... More

We stopped in here for a lunch because when we checked, the majority of the reviews were good so we thought we would try it out. Well I can tell you , the service was really good, the staff very friendly and happy. The food on the other hand, well it was average in flavor,( not worth writing home to... More

We hadn't booked but were seated within 5 minutes at around 8pm. Had the baked oyster trio and fried calamari to start - oysters were delicious and as good as I remembered from 3 years before. Calamari beautifully crisp - large portion! Mains were crab topped fish (drum fish I was told) and shrimp creole - although we were beaten... More

The veal and crab tasted more like country fried steak with some crab meat thrown on top. The medium steak was cooked nearly well done. The oysters were yummy, but you couldn't taste much oyster mostly tasted butter and garlic.

We ate here last night on our second visit in 2years - service is fantastic (thanks Kristee and Rachael). The food is amazing - we had the Roast Chicken in Jambalaya and the 12oz Steak, complemented by a Sazerac and Watermelon Mint Julip - will definitively be back again for more.

Absolutely great food in the centre of New Orleans. The baked oysters are divine, as was the shrimp combo. Great atmosphere and very attentive staff made this a great place to eat. Highly recommended.

Bourbon House dined on 6/13/2014 OK so I returned to Bourbon House last month after having dined there during a business trip to New Orleans in 2013. This time I had my family with me. We had a large group 8-10, but service was timely, accurate and polite. The food was off the charts good! MUST experience when in New... More

I was very pleased to "discover" this place on Bourbon Street. I don't remember seeing the Bourbon House on any of my previous trips to NOLA but it is my new favorite for breakfast. The shrimp and andouille sasuage omelet was great. The service was efficient and emjoyed the experience.

This is one place we will not go back to. The service was horrible. You can get better service from a fast food restaurant. The food was mediocre. The shrimp po boy was very very fishy tasting living on the Mississippi coast I know what a good shrimp po boy tastes like and this wasn't one of them. The steak... More

We live in NOLA and nearly every time we visit any restaurant in the French Quarter for Dinner, we swing by Bourbon House afterward for a Bourbon Milk Punch in a 'Go Cup'. If you visit NOLA and don't try this AT LEAST ONCE, then you have missed out. If you try it your first night, then plan on making... More
