Best sports bar in NOLA

I can understand the mixed reviews about this bar. The service could possibly get under some peoples' skin if they're expecting first class. It's a bar, run by average people who offer 'bar' service. Their menu offers some very classic 'New Orleans'. I'm not from the city, nor do I live... read more

We enjoyed our meal here and it comes pretty quickly. No table service so come for lunch maybe, or casual dinner with friends. Cheap, cheerful and a good variety of beers.

This place is pretty unique. TVs everyone but not your typical sports bar. Great variety of beers and drinks. The food is really good. They have a large selection of Po boys that are made to order. Everything from ham, turkey, to shrimp and oyster. They are also Huge. Won't go away not full.

Uptown, near Tulane University, Cooter Brown's is an unpretentious bar/restaurnant with very tasty oysters and New Orleans fare and a great selection of tasty beers.

Sort of at the end of the University District and as close to the Mississippi River as you can get....nothing spectacular here but a decent sports bar and away from the gawdy sights of the Quarter....if you're visiting Tulane or Loyola or Audubon Zoo....this is a convenient spot......

My sister and I had dinner here on Saturday night during football season. The place was packed, there are (large/huge) TVs everywhere and the friendly crowd was enjoying watching 5 games simultaneously. The food itself was okay although my sis says that the oysters were good. We enjoyed our time here.

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!

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!
