The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Corporate. Lame. Slow service. Over priced. You can tell they don’t care. We went in a rainy Friday afternoon and it was clearly a meh experience.

Drinks are nothing special.

Our server was polite but handling too many tables.

We had to buy food to get a drink.

The website says they have dueling pianos. They don’t. Not since March. Is that just lazy website admin or a false lure?

Doubt we’ll be back.

My wife's bucket list included a visit to Pat O'Brien's and to have a hurricane. The experience did not live up to expectations. We stopped in on a hot day and found the bar to be hot, crowded, and loud. Drink prices were high and the drink itself was mediocre at best.

We visited Pat O’Briens patio as well as the piano bar over the Labor Day weekend (we had no idea that LSU was playing FSU on Sunday). The drinks were tasty as always but planning/staff need attention. There was one patio bartender trying to keep up with a packed patio. In the evening an unfortunate guest perhaps had a bit too much to drink and got sick in the piano bar. It took forever for the staff to take care of the situation. The poor woman that was tasked with the clean up was not getting help from the rest of the staff who just kept getting in her way.

Plenty of fun but standards are slipping.

We visited in early February, weather was pretty cold but the courtyard patio was comfortable with the heaters running. The famous Hurricane is actually not desirable, tastes like alcoholic fruit punch but ordered out of obligation to the signature drink. Free popcorn is a nice plus. Patio has a good atmosphere

Had the Jambalaya. It was again very dry, cold and bland. Had to send it back to have the cook zap it in the microwave. Had to use alot of Louisiana Hot Sauce to get it to be a little spicey. We then went into Dualing Pianos and that was a bigger disappointment. Was told they started at 5:00 but actually didn't start until 6:00. And one person showed up to start the show and about 30 minutes latter another woman showed up to play the other piano. There was dualing going on here.

Famous for their Hurricane drink (Sugar & Lots of Alcohol IMHO), but the greatest part was the dueling piano's. I will definitely go back. BTW, Had one Hurricane and then switched to more traditional drinks. Fun times!!

Came on a Saturday afternoon. OK I know it’s busy. Finally muscled our way into a table on the patio Could not get anyone to serve us for over an hour. Spencer who finally came to clear the table didn’t even ask if we needed anything. Had to go down to the bar to get our own drinks. Great place if you’re a college student. Not so much if you’re an adult. Wouldn’t even order food as they never wipe the table down and it was disgusting

We went here on our last night in New Orleans. Two pianos, but not a dueling piano bar. This pub is bigger than most in New Orleans and still filled up. GThey were good at playing popular songs and getting the crowd involved. Though they were very good at playing the piano, their singing was really horrible. I was surprised that such a popular pub couldn't find better singers. We still had fun singing and drinking hurricanes.

This place is a joke and should not be branded as an Irish bar. No draft Guinness or even draft beer for that matter. Just piss weak cocktails in plastic cups that American tourists like to walk around with before they finish half of one, throw up over their feet and go back to their hotel room at serious risk of wetting the bed.
Waiters are as thick as pig dollop dressed in stupid and scruffy green jackets. Zero customer service just pushing for your order for their next undeserved tip.
Do yourself a favour and go around the corner to Mollys for a proper drink.

Love the piano bar! The music, the atmosphere, top notch! We got there around 7, and only left around 10 because there were people vaping in the bar...even after being reminded that it is not allowed. The staff could have taken care of this but instead, turned a blind eye. That was disappointing.
