This is a sports bar first and foremost but the food is excellent! Their raw oysters are the best. Fat, buttery and always ice cold. And great value for the money spent. The muffaletta is huge, only order half a sandwich unless your sharing. I have been to New Orleans many, many times over the years and accidentally came upon... More

Good sports bar uptown with good drink prices and oysters. CB is much better now that the bar banned smoking.

We were looking for a late night stop for grub and happened upon this gem. We both got po-boys, one Angola and one Bayou. Both were delicious (Bayou was better IMHO). Andygator on tap.

There are a bunch of long tables that everyone shares. It is a community setting at cooters. They have an extensive beer selection & serve bar food. Numerous tv's so you can watch pretty much any game you want. I can't put my finger on it because the place isn't unique but I always have a good time here.

Cooter browns is simple as they come but it does have its charm. the beer selection is huge! so many to choose from. the oysters are fresh, opened right in front of your eyes. you have to personally prepare your sauce if you like any on your oysters. they provide you will all the ingredients, you just have to mix...

It's not for everyone. I have fond memories of many nights here when I was much younger, so my opinion is biased. I still enjoy having poboys & oysters here, drinking beer, & watching football. After a certain hour, it very much belongs to a younger crowd. It's still great after nearly 25 years (in my experience).

This is bar. It has TV sets, pool tables, smoke, noise, and hundreds of types of beer. That being said, I love this place. Have gone there since college. Burger was excellent and the beer is always COLD!! Give it a try.
