Good value and very nice staff

Very nice staff, delicious food and that bread.... I had no intention of having a big lunch knowing that I was headed out for dinner that night but the gumbo was delicious, the fresh bread was flaky and hot, the redfish was divine and I somehow got talked into the out-of-this-world bread... read more

We saw this restaurant ranked high on Trip Advisor so had it on our list of possibles. It was then recommended by several collegues who frequent New Orleans. And they were RIGHT ON!!! This was a wonderful restaurant. We could dress somewhat casual and still enjoy fine dining!! And it was one of the best meals I have had in... More

Our first night was just spectacular. Our waitress was charming and professional making sure I had an exquisite pan blackened fish which accommodated my shellfish allergy. I wish I could recall her name. I know she had just returned from vacation and would be off the next day. We returned the following evening with a group of 11 for business.... More

We went and had reservations for a table but decided to eat at the bar. The night before we had drinks at the bar and spoke with one of the bartenders, Larry. He was very engaging. We were served this evening by Brett. He too was excellent. I had the Fig and Bleu Cheese salad and the Wood Grilled fish,... More

This was the busiest of all the eating establishments we ate at in NOLA. Dined here on the recommendation of a friend. We didn't wait for a table and were seated in the far back of the restaurant, near the kitchen. Tables are very close together. Daughter had the filet mignon and ate all but two potatoes. I had the... More

The food was very good but the seating was uncomfortable. We were so close to our fellow diners that we felt compelled to introduce ourselves. We went on a Saturday night. In spite of having a reservation we waited 35 minutes to be seated. Again ,the food was very good. It was the overall expierence that disappointed us

We had a rather large group, it was crowded but we were seated promptly. I had a shrimp and oyster combo. The atmosphere was great, food and service was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We were at the end of our long weekend holiday in New Orleans and heard some good reviews about mr b's so we thought we would try it. AMAZING! I couldn't fault the service. Our servers were so attentive and we never had to ask for anything. The food was impeccable. All 3 of us had different dishes and we... More

If you go here you HAVE to get the BBQ shrimp. I have tried them everywhere in NOLA and Mr. B's has the best. Always great service and food is perfect. Last time I was in town I wasn't that hungry so just got a half order for a snack :) Well worth the trip!
