BYOB sweetened the deal!

This place is amazing! My husband and I stumbled upon it off the beaten path of Bourbon Street. There is a liquor store a block away where you can grab drinks to take into the restaurant.

We visited this on a recommendation from our hosts at the Jazz quarters. Authentic Cajun & Creole dishes the right portion sizes and absolutely delicious. We liked it so much we went a second time when we came back to the city the next weekend from our side trip to bayou country. They didn't take phone reservations but we just... More

It does not look like much from the outside, but it has a very nice decor, good service (Andy was our server) and absolutely delicious dishes. Had an appetizer or salad with figs and goat cheese. Yummy! And the BYOB option is wonderful.

Of the six fabulous restaurants we dined at in NOLA, EAT was the sleeper of them all. Local staples are elevated to gourmet status and presented without fanfare in a wonderfully cozy establishment. The staff knows the locals by name and it looks like those 'in the know' come here quite often. We started with the Blue Cheese and Fig... More

Very friendly staff and clean, food was great, the fried chicken livers and chicken gumbo were a great start, fried catfish and stuffed peppers along with fried green tomatoes and a very unique take on Mac n cheese. We highly recommend this delightful eatery, BYOB and enjoy, we did

Had a friend recommend and after reading the reviews here, we were sold. Lucked out with a table by the window. So much variety to choose from. Heads up - no alcoholic beverages sold here. You can bring your own and many tables around us had done just that. Most choices come with a side ceasar salad. It was perfectly... More

Such a wonderful atmosphere, food, and service. So nice to have a casual environment where we could wear jeans for dinner yet have top notch service and food! I could eat every meal at EAT and the french quarter location is so convenient. Our favorite server, Andy, is top notch in EVERY way.

Crawfish boulettes, Deep fried softshell crab dauphine with fried green tomatoes, a biscuit the size of my head with a lovely blackberry preserve and excellent service from Debbie. Lovely atmosphere! I also tried my husband's pork belly - also perfect! Couldn't ask for anything more perfect on a Sunday morning in sunny, warm N'awlins!
