We chose this restaurant simply because it was just after 5:15 PM and we had not had lunch, only breakfast, and wanted to find something nearby. After checking out the posted menu we decided to give this restaurant a try. This restaurant sported a predominant bar. But it also had several tables on this level, an apparent patio (which we...

One of our go to places, if you eat oysters take the only two seats at the Oyster Bar / Steam table. Always a good meal, especially the seafood, good location too.

Although the restaurant was empty at the hour we were there the oysters char-broiled were delist. I am always leery about going into a restaurant when no one else is in the place, we were surprised it was so good. The beers were cold, there was full bar service, and the wait staff were wonderful. After a long day walking... More

We ate two meals here during our week but mostly it was out of convenience to where we happened to be staying. Plenty of other places around to try but not in the immediate one block radius. The service and food were okay but with what we had other places in NOLA it is average.

We were walking by and could smell the boiled shrimp boiling so we went on in. The only place to sit was at the bar. Starting out the bartender was not friendly. The drinks were only ok but the shrimp were great. The bartender overheard me say that he was not friendly and his attitude changed.

The menu offers all kinds of seafood, some sandwiches, pasta, steaks, and some Cajun/creole dishes. The emphasis is on the seafood. My husband had the jambalaya,and it was outstanding. I had the seafood platter (shrimp, oysters, deviled crab, and fries). Mine was good and well-seasoned, but the jambalaya is the thing to get. It's very casual, well lit, and large... More

having just arrived in NOLA, we were starving! Drawn by the music and outdoor seating, we decided to try it. I had a shrimp 'n oyster poboy with a tasty Bloody Mary (love the pickled green beans!) My daughter had popcorn crawfish, which she loved. However, even better than the food was the music. Old timers playing live jazz, N.O.... More

Hubby had gumbo or something and I had some kind of sandwich. Neither was good and I almost tossed my cookies while trying to eat. Finally gave up - no way could I eat it.

We walked by earlier in the day and smelled the boil and knew we had to return for dinner. The Snow Crab legs (boil) were absolutely amazing. The garlic grilled Oysters were similarly superb. The Shrimp Boil wasn't as good as the crab but still very good. Finally, the cheesecake was tasty but it's whipped and airy so the texture... More
