Great food and service!

Great choice of New Orleans food!! We loved the taste of New Orleans with small portions of Jambalaya, Gumbo and Crawfish. We also really like the beer sampler!! The service was really good too :)

We love this place. After taste-testing every po' boy we could get our hands on, Chartres House has our favorite shrimp po' boy. Try it with a Southern Pecan beer. It doesn't get any better. Very reasonable priced for the portion sizes. Cant' wait to go back!

My husband and I just happened upon this place while walking around the city. The interior was cute and the A/C felt cold so we decided to check it out! This was by far the best meal that I had while in town. I ordered the crawfish etouffee and my husband had the taste of New Orleans. Everything tasted better... More

I ordered the blackened red fish and if was a delicious choice. The sides were good as well as the bread pudding. The other foods I saw served looked good as well. One family with children had awesome looking burgers.

The place is a nice place to grab something to eat. The crawfish étouffée was ok (had better in the area), just a little land for my taste. The place, location and staff was clean and very nice and helpful with places Togo away from Bourbon Street.

There's a variety of food...whether you want to play it safe with chicken strips and fries or try some authentic Louisiana food! The service is fast and the staff is polite and helpful. The atmosphere is great. You can even sit on the balcony overlooking the streets.

Good food for a 10:30pm dinner. Got the friend shrimp and they were pretty delicious. Our server was helpful in directing us towards what things the kitchen would want to cook up right before closing....
