Always good

Just finished lunch with greaseless fried catfish and onion rings along with great crusty bread. Crab and corn bisque was excellent. Portions very large. Sidewalk tables available. Come early or late to avoid crowds.

We found this by accident walking to the Maris gras parade. The portions are large and the quality is good.

Asked some locals about a good place to get a drink on Magazine Street and they suggested Joey K's. We were going to stop in a for 1 drink and then we stayed for 2 hours. Austin, Nathan, and the amazing staff was not only friendly, but suggested some of the best drinks I have ever had. The food was... More

Joey K's seems to have some strong gravitational pull because I somehow always end up dining there on every New Orleans trip I make. Last year, I introduced my NOLA-born friend to the deliciousness of this neighborhood restaurant and she really loved not only the food but the atmosphere as well. We dined here again last week and before ordering,... More

This place was recommended by a tour guide and well worth it! We sat at the bar stools so no wait for lunch. I had a terrific grilled catfish with seasoned vegetables and red potatoes. Also came with a salad but I declined it because I wanted a side of red beans and rice (which was excellent!). When we arrived... More

Went on the basis of a recommendation from our walking tour guide. So glad we did. They were absolutely packed when we arrived. BUT they had space at the bar (with full service) so we got seats immediately. Upon asking about the difference between jambalaya and gumbo, we got a small sample of the jambalaya to try. Seriously good stuff.... More

We had burned out on window shopping in the Quarter, so caught a cab to Magazine Street for the wives to shop, and Joey K’s was half way through our walk. We all had traditional Cajun food, and between the six of us we tried about everything. It was the real deal, and worth the detour. I could have eaten... More

It's just like the other reviews say....service is slow but the food is excellent! Had the catfish and cheese grits with mystery meat (one waitress said pork, the other said beef. I think it was beef). Good atmosphere, huge portions. Worth the wait if you're not in a hurry.

There was a great variety of people at this restaurant. Older couples, a group of 20-somethings, a youngish couple, a few singles. That probably means they are there for the food, instead of because it's trendy. There is a sign that says "Best in the World Beans and Rice", so that's what I ordered. It was very good and came...

My husband & I had Friday night supper here. It is a smallish neighborhood restaurant on Busy Magazine Street surrounded by local & national stores. West Elm is across the street. Lots of local color. Great for families, but about 12 tables on main floor.,Small bar where you can also eat. Large menu & nightly specials are offered on the... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
