Good place

Good po'boys and a lot of different beers (bottle and on-tap). Also very easy to access with the streetcar. I'd recommend to anyone that loves beer and wants a "real" New Orleans po'boy or oysters (or oyster po'boy.)

While visiting NOLA we were on the prowl for cheap happy hour oysters. This was one of our stops! What a disappointment. Oysters were $15/ dozen and while large weren't so great they were with a premium price for such a low rent feeling place. No drink specials. They boast hundreds of beers and a lot of screens for sports... More

Went into this place(Aug.2nd) with my wife for a quick eat and was so disappointed. I had gone there years ago when they were a really nice place to eat. My last visit was a nightmare. The tattooed cooks who were not so well groomed, did not use gloves to prepare sandwiches or any of the other food orders. The... More

I went with friends for dinner on our first night in town after one of them had heard about the draft beer selection. The food was good, although it got to the point that you just had to go stand and wait for your food because they were not displaying the order numbers for the orders that were ready on... More

It's one of those places that has a little bit of everything. Po boys, oysters, beer, pool. It was not the prettiest, but it was great. They served the biggest po boys n oysters I have ever had.

It's almost too difficult to select a beer they offer so many but it doesn't compare to the amazing sandwiches! It was so big my husband and I just split Manager's Special.

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 there, but from an outsider's perspective, I know where... 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.
