Catfish tacos -- Yum!

Stopped by after a walk along the river and had the delicious catfish tacos. Yum! Loved the exchange of cabbage for the more traditional lettuce. I would definitely return for those tacos.

This place has a wonderful atmosphere with the copper brewing tanks visible. They have a large selection of hand crafted beers which are brewed on site. I highly recommend the Cajun Micalada and the Chocolate Hazelnut beer. Both were wonderful. We only stopped in for a quick drink during shopping, but we would definitely go back and try them for...

While visiting New Orleans during the week of Thanksgiving, we decided to stop in for dinner. The gumbo was rich and savory. My son had the ribs which were absolutely delicious. I dined on the stuffed shrimp and seafood cheesecake which were yummy. The llive band was an added bonus.

if this were somewhere else it might be the best place in town but its only average for new orleans. the beers are good. location on the edge of the quarter makes it a little quieter than some ( although they did have a jazz band ). service was friendly. cost was reasonable. the oysters were very good. only complaint...

A ton of better places to eat, average food and brew. not enough shrimp on the poor boy. the waiter acted like - why were we there bothering him. so I would pick another restaurant so the staff could just talk among them self and not be bothered by tourism. The best thing was the artist made jellyfish lights hanging... More

Good oysters and beer. Located on Decatur where you can people watch and catch a glimpse of the steam boat. Great brewery and good oysters.

We were delighted by the suggestions that the waitress had. The food was spot on... she was absolutely right. We had the shrimp and grits along with the fish tacos. The live music wasn't overpowering. The decor was very nice, the service was great... all around a nice place to eat. The only concern is that food in the French... More

Had sampling of 5 micro-beers. Good, but nothing extraordinary. Main course was simple fare - crawfish macaroni-n-cheese. Crawfish tails were small and slightly over-cooked. Entree was small, too. Pecan pie for dessert. Okay, but certainly not worth a return visit. Would avoid - too many high quality restaurants to warrant giving my money to this establishment.

Nice place to eat, but it looks better than it is. The menu is very seafood orientated, so if this isnt your thing then stay away. The live music every evening is nice.
