Good lunch

We ate at this restaurant because it was in a convenient location. It was a good lunch. It was not outstanding, but it was a good meal. It is more casual that some French Quarter dining, but I had no complaints about the meal. They had a peanut salad dressing that was excellent. I would eat... read more

This restaurant by far was and is not only my favorite overall recommendation but my coworkers as well! Everything was great: the staff, the service, atmosphere and last but not least the food was delicious. The beer was amazing! We were even greeted by the restaurant manager who brought out our dessert and thanked us for our business!

We only stopped in for a couple of beers and the Wise beer was good and cold. The problem was that there were gnats around our beer. I know this is a brewery but I have not been in one where I saw gnats. There was spillage from the beer pour area for one. The mixer had gnats all over... More

Before leaving home, we had ordered the NOLA travel guide. It contained several coupons including a BOGO for the Brewhouse. This coupon is also available at those hotel card stands. We expected a chain restaurant - type experience, like an Applebee's or the like. We were very pleasantly surprised. The beer sampler, the crayfish mac and cheese, and duck breast... More

12 of us went for dinner, in town because of a large conference, while the French Quarter music festival was going on so it was hard to find a place. We were able to book 2 tables for 6 each using Open Table. They sat us promptly within talking distance of each other. We shared Boudin Balls as an appetizer... More

Beer brewed here is in house, and they offer reasonably priced flights which allow you to try all the brews. The beers here are brewed to be traditional german style, so the offers are your standard, Dunkel, Weiss, Pils and a few special seasonals. They do offer traditional "radler" style with 1/2 lemon-lime soda and 1/2 beer. Very tasty and... More

Popped in for a little snack ended up with a dining experience. In all our travels to New Orleans I have not ventured into eating crawfish...just couldn't it. Today seemed a day for first so here we go. To start I ordered the 5 beer sampler, it's a brewery had to try the wares. I'm not a beer drinker at... More

We tried the Calamari and Gumbo and both were average at best. There are so many wonderful places to eat in the French Quarter. Try those before this place.

After traveling all day we were looking for a "real" meal, something with substance. We found it. What a great menu, full of seafood which is what NOLA is famous for. However I jumped on the bar-b-que ribs and they were yummy. Thinking about the beans and mac 'n cheese sides makes me want them again. Of course it was... More

It was raining and we sought refuge in the Crescent city brewhouse. We had Weiss beer ( ask for a lemon) and proceeded to work our way through the appetizers. We had the Boudin balls and the meat pies. Both are excellent representation of Louisiana food as your grandmother would have made it. They're the kind of heritage foods what... More
