The burger was everything that was promised and delicious baked potato as well. The beer was cold and the staff was very nice. It was crowded but the wait for a table was quick.

I stopped by Port of Call last night as I was walking back to my hotel from Frenchmen St. It was 11PM but Port of Call stays open til at least midnight. The menu is limited to burgers and steaks, and the sides are limited to baked potatoes and grilled mushrooms. The burgers are ground fresh as you order (who... More

Popped in here on the off chance. So glad we did. Great burgers, good beers, wonderful atmosphere. Quick service, really lovely food, reasonable prices. Leave behind the tourist traps of Bourbon Street and grab yourselves a delicious bargain.

The burger is great! Large, juicy, and flavorful. The baked potato the comes with it is fantastic. Next up is the Monsoon which is similar to a Hurricane. It is less sweet but still packs a punch also, it comes in a 32 oz cup. Dangerous... There is always a line. so be prepared. While you are there, visit to... More

This is my all time favorite place to eat! I moved away from south louisiana 15 years ago and miss this place! Went back yesterday and nothing has changed...just as great as ever. If you enjoy prime beef and burgers you will love the food. Cost more than your average burger but you get what you pay for!

Once again, I had the best meal of my entire trip here. I cannot say enough about how good the burgers and baked potatoes are. When we got there, we were told it'd be an hour wait, or we could find a place at the bar when someone left. We were sitting at the bar within 5 minutes... I would've... More

This was one of the best burgers I ever had. The meat was thick and juicy with a robust flavor. The baked potato was super great. If the food channel has not dropped in on a visit they need too
