Give this a try!

On a street full of touristy spots, we were pleasantly surprised. The food was great--alligator bites and fried chicken salad. Just what we needed.

Excellent beers. Delicious food and great staff. We arrived in New Orleans wondering where to go for lunch. We walked and found the Crescent City Brewery. Tried the sampler of all the beers currently on as they all sounded good and they were! Had a delicious lunch Shrimp and grits, and split a slice of cheesecake for afters.

Great food and great servers. I had brewhouse ribs and it was delicious and huge portion. My fiancee had jumbolaya pasta and it was also delicious, little bit spicy. We used coupon from visitor center so one entree was free.

Red Stallion and Weisse beers were outstanding! Had baked Brie appetizer which was good but may choose something different next time we're here. Sausage platter was good. Pulled pork sandwich was excellent!! Worth a return trip next time we're in New Orleans!

On a recent visit to NOLA, my sister and I were starving but couldn't decide where to eat. We popped into some shop in the French Quarter, and they recommended this place....even gave us a coupon. I'm glad we listened. I had fish tacos and my sister had a lovely salad topped with grilled shrimp. The shrimp were beautiful! I... More

If you are on Decatur street, you should expect touristy. We stopped in for a drink and some food on a hot summer day. Tried the 6 beer sampler, oysters and shrimp and grits. Some of the beers were great and some were just ok. Oysters were ok. Shrimp and grits were really good. The service was nice and helpful.... More

From online research, we were debating about eating here or going further up Decatur street to Jackson brewery. This was closets to our hotel, so our first stop to check things out directly. It was nice and cool inside, several items on the menu looked intriguing, the beer list seemed fine and since it was after the lunch crowd, there... More

This place is located on Decatur- which is the highest tourist area in the French Quarter. We only stayed for one drink, the service was OK at best, and food was bland. It has a great balcony for people watching. And you dont get to choose your beers when you get a flight.

Was there on vacation. Nice staff and pleasant surroundings but pricy menu with smallish portions of food that was unremarkable. Also tried the 5 beer sampler. Again, unremarkable beer. There is a Brewry behind the bar where the make beer but couldn't see much. Too many other places to go for good food and atmosphere.

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.
