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.

Stopped in here for a quick bite not expecting to find anything more than "bar food." They have great creole style food. We tried the shrimp creole, shrimp and grits, and blackened chicken. Everything was delicious. We sat in the bar while waiting for a table and one of the servers told us we didnt need to wait, he could... More

I wish I could say something about the food, service, ambiance of the restaurant but I simply can't! I must confess that I was only there for the "world famous" Hurricane and I wasn't disappointed! Thanks to my friendly and helpful bartender, Steph, I learned about many places to visit while in New Orleans and enjoyed the tasty "Hurricane" that... More

My wife and I had dinner here. The drinks were good the service was good and the food was ok. Several places to sit but can get confusing depending on what you are there for. It was packed so they must be doing something right. Server was very nice.

This place is none for its Hurricanes and famous patio and piano bar. I highly recommend this place to all those visiting the bourbon street area and wanting to have relaxing evening with a nice atmosphere.

I have the fish and shrimp special and it was a great choice ! The portion size was lager and to share if you just sampling NOLA food. The fish was flaky and seasoned just right. I love that the tails was removed from the fried shrimp. Great atmosphere for couples. The service staff was friendly and efficient.

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.
