We went to Coop's because I read a few reviews which raved about it's food. We did have to wait in line for a few minutes to get in. Once inside we were seated but service was slow as it was so busy.It is a small, crowed, noisy place which amazing food. I had the fried chicken with the rabbit... More

I came here because a few locals told me the fried chicken was incredible and we were greatly disappointed. Not only was the waiter super rude (apparently that's their style) but their fried chicken was overly priced and there was nothing special about it. Was kind of embarrassed to bring my guests here. I can think of very few reasons... More

The food was absolutely amazing!!!! Best fried chicken I have ever ate in my life. I don't like cole slaw, but Coops cole slaw was delicious! The waiter could have been a lot more friendlier, but otherwise a great place!

Stopped by for a quick lunch and everything was great. Awesome service and the food... Jambalaya, fried chicken and gumbo.. All of it was amazing and we will definitely be back. Our taxi driver recommended this place when we left the airport, and so happy we made it!

I was recommended this place by a local, and now I return on every trip. Its a small bar with a couple of tables, and the food is great and the service is too.

The same servers have been there for 20+ years. The atmosphere is the same. The fried chicken, the crab claws, and the jambalaya are still delicious. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Highly recommended by locals in New Orleans. Was very busy when we arrived! Luckily we were able to get a table straight away! I had the tasting plate, which was a great way to try everything!! The service was great too, and everyone (patrons and staff) seemed to be all enjoying themselves!

On a tip from a local, we stood in line a short time to dine at Coop's Place. This is a pretty small establishment, and when they have 3 large parties at one time, that leaves less tables for 2 or 4. We arrived between 5-6, so we didn't wait too long. Our server was not real attentive but got... More

Several years ago on a trip to New Orleans a local recommended Coop's to us and I am so glad he did. Do not the the appearance of the restaurant or the gruff attitude of the waitresses keep you from the food here. The service is lacking which is why I only gave 4 stars. No one rushes here and...

My husband and I ate here for the first time recently and the food was really good. Very small place, but a cool bar atmosphere. Service okay, nothing special. I had the Shrimp and Grits, it was very good, my husband had a burger and fries, he liked it. We were very HAPPY it was smoke free!! A huge decision... More
