Étouffée and jazz

This is a very busy place, and for good reason. The house-made beers are good and so is the food. The gumbo was fine, but the étouffée was excellent. There was a three-piece jazz group that was entertaining too.

Enjoyed boudin balls and crawfish Mac n cheese. Both were good. For dinner we had th etoufee which was really good and had a good kick but not overly spicy. We also had th stuffed shrimp, also a winner. I was nervous about the jalapeño as I'm very sensitive to spice but again flavorful but not too spicy. The finish... More

This Microbrewery/Restaurant is outstanding. The beer is without a doubt the best i've ever had. Had a pilsner and a Red Stallion(Amber) and they were both outstanding. The food is most different then anywhere you will go in New Orleans. It is designed around the menu and fits very well with the beers. They only serve there own beers and... More

We ordered the BLT sandwich and a burger. The BLT was very different and very good. The burger was good. Our server was very nice and professional. The ambiance in the restaurant is nice and they were pretty crowded on a weekday for lunch. We will return when in NOLA.

Our server was very sweet and accomodating but the food was awful. My friend and I both had the fish tacos, and she spent the night in the bathroom and I had a very uneasy feeling. It is a shame to have a horrible meal in this city known for the food.

Excellent food and their brews are always top notch. I like the dark beers but I've tried them all. Had the seafood cheesecake (more like a seafood pate) that was awesome! They also do raw oysters!

The hostess was annoyed that we interrupted her phone session to be seated, but the oysters looked fresh , so we went in. The bartender took forever to get to us , and shrugged when I asked about the beer varieties. How does a brewhouse employ a bartender who doesn't drink beer?? I had a sampler, and they were quite...

We had eaten at this establishment many years ago and remembered it fondly. We had eaten lunch at the bar and had a brew with fresh oysters. We had so much fun then that we decided to repeat the experience. Much to our surprise, they did not do fresh oysters until the evening. We did have beers, which were quite... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
