NOT a New Orleans Po-Boy

While I realize many French Quarter restaurants are "touristy" and not up to New Orleans' standards, I was particularly disappointed in the Po-Boy I got here. I ordered a half shrimp/half oyster Po-Boy. I will say the fried oysters were plentiful and delicious; really good (I wish I'd have just... read more

Skip this one- we stopped in as I figured most do- it is in a great location and probably gets a ton of foot traffic, this is it only saving grace. We ordered a Shrimp Po Boy and what we got was that. Kinda of- The sandwich ( which was ordered for my girlfriend and I too share) was not... More

We chose this place on the fly and it was a mistake. We waited too long for cold fries, cold shrimp and a burger that was just ok. Only giving it an extra star because our waiter was friendly. Considering all the outstanding options nearby, we're kicking ourselves for this one. Won't be back.

A restaurant can get by with slow service, being crowded, a bit "worn" in appearance --if the food makes the difference! The food was nothing but a disappointment- served lukewarm (etoufee/rice/creole) and seafood was rubbery, tasteless. Based on the appearance of the restaurant, this was not just a bad night, but status quo.

Fantastic Cajun food. Combo Po'Boy was excellent (catfish and osyters). Barbequed shrimp had head on so it had to peeled but more than worth the mess. Save room for dessert, especially the cakes. Our server was Lena, a true gem of the restaurant world.

After leaving our cruise ship we headed downtown to Bourbon Street and Frenchman Street since we had a late flight. I do not recommend dragging your luggage behind you up and down the sidewalks which are cobblestone and brick! :| We were starved and could not find a single place open for lunch on Sunday and finally stopped in at...

You can find a seat in this cool-looking, centrally located creole place for a simple reason: the food is terrible. The oysters on my Po'Boy were over-breaded, over-salted and over-cooked. Bread was - awful! Maybe go fo a drink while people-watching, but don't get seduced by the cool ambiance.

Came across the restaurant on a French Quarter shopping trip, menu looked good, we were not disappointed, open air restaurant with very good gumbo, the fried mozzarella appetizer was awesome! Friendly wait staff, quick service, highly recommend this restaurant.
