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!

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

Had some time to spare before dinner and drove past this place............decided to stop in and get a beer. They have an extensive selection of beer on tap as well as a wonderful selection of bottled beers. I know that they serve food, but we had dinner plans do we did not experience the food offerings. They also have numerous... 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.

Full of local college neighborhood patrons who want tavern/pub chow, lots of TVs and great oysters. Prices are fantastic. Just plop down in front of one of the screens, grab a pitcher of brew, get a plate of oysters and relax.

Located at the end of the St. Charles street car line, Cooter Brown's is a great little sports bar for anytime. Stopped in the other day to finish watching one of the college games and grab a beer with some friends. Immediately you'll notice the place is smoke free, which I like, but the smokers do have a outside area... More

yummy food. Something for everyone from salad to burger, muffaletta to seafood. Delish drinks. Inexpensive. Many TV screens - it IS a sports bar. The staff and clientele were friendly and fun.
