Service uneven, Food fantastic

Its not fancy but it certainly is bright and cheerful. We hiked from the hotel in the heat to get there. We were seated promptly but then the waitstaff disappeared except one lady working her tail off at the counter. May have been a shift change, anyway we had walked too far to walk out and I... read more

A lot of locals visit this little restaurant. The food is average priced and average tasting, but it gave our four children an opportunity to try something outside their comfort zone without costing a fortune. Our meals took about an hour to get to us, but things are slower in New Orleans, so we entertained ourselves by taking silly pictures... More

We heard about Joey K's on the travel channel, and decided to dine here while staying in the garden district in New Orleans, first I like to say that our server was very pleasant and welcoming and that is where things go down hill from here. I had a shrimp Po boy sandwich and my wife had a bowl of... More

My husband and I went to Joey K's for dinner tonight, our first night of 2 in New Orleans. We saw that it was a Diner's Drive ins and Dives location and wanted to check it out. We had a fantastic meal! My husband had the jambalaya and I had the catfish tacos. They had to be the best fish... More

This seems to be a popular restaurant destination on Magazine Street (Garden District). The menu seemed fun with a nice assortment of lighter dinner fare in addition to some local favorites. There was a bit of a wait, as the inside tables were full but the outside tables were available. We were finally seated in the inside back dining room... More

This place is right in the Garden District and a must go to! Our waitress was Camela and she was wonderful, so nice. We had the veal and chicken and it was some of the best friend chicken I have ever had! I could have happily eaten at this restaurant for the rest of my trip. The place was decorated... More

I don't understand what the big deal is. The service is good; the staff is lovely; the food, eh. We ordered the fried green tomatoes, the rib-eye, baked potatoes, salads. The tomatoes were as good, but no better, than most Southern restaurants serve, and the rest was probably not as good as most restaurants.

"Meh....." is the best way to describe my experience there. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't that great. It was just okay. I ordered the Shrimp Magazine. It was alright. Good at first, but then it quickly became boring. The service was average. We didn't really get checked on a lot. Salads were brought out at different times. It... More

I've heard so many good things about this place, so I had to try it out. Unfortunately, my experience wasn't that great. Primarily because we had a terrible waitress. Overall, she was just a little rude and didn't care to provide us with a good service. It started off bad when I asked her if there were any special house... More

That I give this 3 stars is no criticism: this is a down home restaurant serving great New Orleans food like red beans and rice, crawfish, fried seafood, gumbo, as well as items like a great meatloaf. Very informal setting.
