“Terrible, keep walking.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Food was terrible, bland, cheap, bad beer selection, lackluster service. In a small town fine but there are so many excellent choices in New Orleans, don't waste your time or your money.

“The staff could care less.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Stopped in here for a snack during a rainstorm. The wait staff could absolutely care less if you are there. No refills. No follow-up to ask you anything. Bad food. High prices. This is the definition of a tourist trap. Stay away!!!!

“Dreadful value for money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Stopped at the Corner Oyster Bar and Grill for breakfast. Food was very bland and disappointing and the orange juice was so little in a cup of ice, that it was tasteless. Compared with other eateries in the vicinity this presented very poor value for money.

“Great location, poor food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

My husband and I both had the sampler plate, it arrived at our table in less than 5 minutes after ordering. The jambalaya was a sticky blob of rice, little meat, the gumbo was thin and bland, the shrimp creole was blah with tiny shrimp, the red beans were the best part. Obviously everything was in the kitchen waiting to be scooped on our plate and microwaved, parts were warm, parts were cool, nothing was hot.

The bread pudding was a hard, solid, 1X2 inch square, part cold, part warm.

I had to check the menu on the website to see if the people who liked this place had the correct restaurant.

“Stop in for fried oysters wrapped in bacon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Live this little place! We've been back twice. We ducked in after hurricane Ivan several years ago and was impressed with the food, service and price. So we came back 10 years later to find the same quality of all. Cute and in a great location. Come early for window seats. It's a fun place to sit and people watch!
