Cooter Brown's Tavern goes way back in New Orleans lore. It was open when I was in high school back in the mid/late 1970's, because many of my classmates would eat lunch there...don't get me started on that tangent... Anyway, it was a cool place for many years. Key phrase... Was a cool place. Now, not so much. The place... More

Not been here for about five years and can see why. Went for lunch at 1.30pm after finding my first two choices were closed. Staff were rude and unhelpful. I went up to the bar and asked for a menu then asked the barmaid for a po-boy and was told I had to go into another room to order it... More

Awesome spot at the end of the St. Charles streetcar line. Freezing beers, GREAT Po'Boys. Tons of TV's. Seems like a great place to watch the WhoDats, which we intend to do. Pretty fun to ride the street car out & have lunch and a cold Abita.

If you want to leave the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter for an hour or so, take the St. Charles Trolley to Carrollton Ave and get off at the bend in the tracks. The ride there is lovely and relaxing; you pay $1.50 correct change to ride on an electric trolley car along St. Charles Avenue. You can... More

This place ROCKS!!! Ordered oysters on the half shell and they were so big and fresh, I couldn't stop eating them. The guy who shuck them for us was so nice, didn't get his name but a big "thank you". We split a seafood platter which was humongous and so delicious, the catfish was fried to perfection, as well as... More

They have a diverse selection of beer both on tap and bottled and great food. I had a few pints of Abita and the Soft Shell Crab and was very happy with both. The crabs were fried with a delicious batter, and the bread (which makes or breaks a po boy in my opinion) was the way it should be.... More

Want crazy, awesome brews? This is the place. It has the feel of an old tavern, but it was not packed with people, the prices were very good for the uniqueness of the beer. We did not drink any drafts, but we really enjoyed some tasty bottled beers.

I ate lunch here today with a friend and was far from disappointed. I ordered the Cooter's Club sandwich, which was pretty solid and filling. The food came quickly and was fresh. Prices are not bad either. The only problem with it is that it smells of tobacco in certain parts of the establishment (I don't know if they allow... More

My nephew took us here after the Jazz Fest. More of a college or sports bar feeling but the "mudbugs" and beer were very good. Huge beer selection and after a day in the sun very welcomed.
