Cool hang out place!

You can order food, drinks, then sit outside and enjoy them at your leisure. No table service here you order inside then wait for your number to be called. Everything I tried was good including the muffaletta, the corn bites, and the gator quesadillas! Yum!

More beers than you can possibly drink.. Great atmosphere. Don't miss this gem. Play the game of naming all of the heads on the wall.

A little long to get to from downtown on the trolley, but worth the trip! This place has great character, great staff and the oysters are probably the best I've ever had at the right price. They are not trying to impress, just do the basics well. Get there!

If you take a ride on the St Charles streetcar, use the opportunity to visit Cooter Brown's. It is located at the big bend where the streetcar turns 90°. Get off at the turn, walk back across St Charles, toward the levee, and you will see Cooter Brown's on the left. Cooter Brown's is first a sports bar, offering over... More

My dad and I came here for some hangout time and had a great experience. We went into the back of the bar (the Snooty Cooter) and they had an excellent beer selection. Really good drafts from all over the world. The bartender really knew his beer and was able to offer insightful suggestions. While there, we also had some... More

Several of us visited this place for lunch, and asked the cook to fix us the best sandwich they had. He recommended the Bayou Philly. Wow! That was one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. It had gator sausage, grilled shrimp, was topped with roasted peppers, onions, Pepper Jack and American cheese.

I followed a crowd of locals in for lunch and enjoyed a grilled shrimp po' boy sandwich (probably should have gone with fried shrimp for some crunch). Good draft beer selection, extensive bottled beer inventory and plenty of televisions to watch sports.
