Friendly, good food, great soft shell crab!

On our first night in New Orleans we had arrived at Muriel's ahead of our reservation and decided to have a beer down the street -- at Pere Antoine's. We sat at the bar and were served by a very friendly lady bartender, and enjoyed talking to a New Orleans native sitting by us at the bar. This was... read more

Food was fine, service pretty much non-existent. It explained why we were able to get a table for 5 on a Saturday night without a reservation. Desserts were awesome. Bread pudding and bananas foster beignets.

We had read a lot about this spot, by found out it is a case of reality not living up to the hype. I think this place is living on its past reputation as far as quality of food goes! The service however, was the best we have had anywhere, period. I believe our waitress' name was Tashonda, very attentive... More

Its hard to choose among the many restaurants in the French Quarter, but we read menus as we walked and liked what we saw here for lunch. The food was good, portions more than adequate, the service friendly and prices reasonable.

We (wife and two kids ages 10 and 8) were in New Orleans the weekend before Mardi Gras so there was plenty going on. We didn't realize it was Mardi Gras when we booked the trip but I'm glad we did. It was actually a very family-friendly atmosphere (during the day). For the restaurant - the location of this restaurant... More

Stopped by for a late night snack during a cold rainy night during Mardi Gras. Was relieved to find that they were still serving, but disappointed that I couldn't get breakfast. Apparently they don't serve breakfast during Mardi Gras. Nevertheless, my wife and I split a cheeseburger and had some spinach dip with tortilla chips. The cheeseburger was great, however... More

Great spot on the corner of Royal, take a seat at the window to watch the world go by while enjoying your food. We went here for breakfast and can definitely recommend the Jambalaya omelette - a ridiculous amount of food but oh so good. Very friendly staff too!

Stopped in because we wanted to watch some of the Krewe of Barkus parade, and asked for a seat near the sidewalk. The host advised it would be a short wait, and accommodated us. Started with fried green tomatoes and gumbo, the tomatoes were a little squishy but the gumbo was the best I had on the trip. We mostly... More

Love going here for breakfast when we visit the French Quarter. The meals are large, and actually can keep me full until dinner (if I start out late enough). The staff is friendly and cheerful, and you glass is never empty long.

My husband had been there as a young teen and wanted to return. The ambiance is like a cafeteria in the main room where we ate but there are other rooms to see in the back that are lovely. The food was uninteresting and unimaginative compared to our other meals.
