4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This establishment is probably the most famous in New Orleans. The prices are inline with other establishments, the service very good, the food selection and quality is good and the entertainment as good as any other on the strip.

I live in New Orleans and when friends and family come to town, this is a must. Pat O's has the best hurricanes in town and the atmosphere is awesome. You can't miss this place if you are coming to town for a visit.

We had a blast here! The drink service was quick and the piano players were just awesome. Chris Z was especially great. He knew every song and just did a great job. Can't wait to go back!

In the 40's Pat Obrien came up with a drink to make use of the large quantities of rum available at the time. The Hurricane was born, and has since become not only a famous refreshment, but his bar a NOL institution. We wandered into Pat O’Brien’s on Peter street, luckily at a time when we could get a table... More

We made the mistake of sitting indoors on our first day in New Orleans at Pat O'Briens as we went back a few nights later and experienced the famous hurricane in the courtyard section with the fire waterfountain which was nice and relaxing and chilled, this was a welcome break from the crazy nightlife in Bourbon Street. The servers and... More

It's a definite tourist stop. The hurricanes are strong. I had the fried duck bites. Nice and tasty. We just stopped for a quick snack.

Stopped in late afternoon for the famous Pat O'Brien's Hurricane! Great ambiance, beverages, and music. Loved the people watching on the patio. It was the perfect way to spend a hot steamy afternoon. Loved it, pure New Orleans at its best.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
