The pushy waitress asking about beers, appetizers repeatedly is the main reason for the average rating. The food was above average, however my red fish Pontchartrain, while good was a very small portion. Ample portions were provided on a Cochon poorboy with fries and they were able to make a vegetarian dish out of the Pasta Jambalaya. There was a... More

This brewhouse is across from the old Jackson Brewery , which is now shops. They have four types of freshly brewed beers on tap. They have a large first floor room and a smaller but better viewing balcony on the second floor for watching people going to Jackson Square and the French Market. Oysters on the half shell are shucked... More

We had for appitizers oysters 3-ways and baked bree w/apples and garlic, then shared the oyster club sandwich. All were very good, but the club was surprisingly good. Prices were about as expected for the area but not outrageous. The balcony faces the river, but the levee does restrict the view, though we could see the riverboat Natchez quite well.... More

We had a nice time sitting at the bar and enjoying a few beers and apps. Beer was OK and our food was great! Pretty standard menu but the food was good and the oysters were awesome!! Nice staff, lots of tables. Live jazz music was also great!

There is a small patio in the rear. Eat there if you can. It is quiet and very old Louisianna. I had a shrimp poboy and it was the best I had on this trip. My husband had the german saussages and loved it. All others praised the food too. The service is good and prompt.

There may be a line out the door, but the food is worth it. Crawfish etouffee, shrimp and grits, plus lots of options on oysters are all well done. Because this is a brewery, you can discover some excellent new beers on tap. Desserts are wonderful, but you'll probably need to share because you will be so full. Just to... More

We were seated upstairs on the outside deck overlooking the city. The pilsner brew was awesome and our meals were delicious! We had the meat pies to start, alligator bites and a crispy chicken salad. Desert was a chocolate pecan pie, yum! Wonderful waitress and atmosphere.

Despite a busy night they found us a quiet table in the courtyard away from the music at the front of the restaurant. The food was great, reasonably priced for what we had and the service was more than acceptable. The in house brews were just the job! More than worth a visit!

I can't say how many times I've been to Crescent City Brewhouse. Too many to count. And sometimes several times a trip to Nola. This trip was no different. We always seem to migrate here after the long drive-mainly for the fine selection of beer- and to just relax. So again this was the draw. This trip to New Orleans... More
