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.

We just sat at the oyster bar and had a beer here. The beer was good, but the price was more than I expected. We had fun joking with the Oyster Shucker who was friendly and gregarious. We had a few oysters that were quite fresh and good. The shucker was entertaining and gave my wife helpful, educational tips on... More

We were headed to Jackson Brewing when I checked trip advisor one last time as we got close and Crescent City Brewhouse came up with better ratings, so that's where we went. Bryan was such an engaging waiter that loved the food and beer he was selling. He was incredible. We got a sample of 6 beers and enjoyed all.... More

We went with my wife to have a very unformal lunch, we just got there walking. Beers were very good and the place was good looking. We had an oyster sandwich, and at night me and my wife were intoxicated. A very unpleasant surprise.

This what the Big Easy is all about, warm atmosphere, good craft beer, mellow music. Having a tall Red Stallion, the signature beer at sunset on an early autumn evening.

Had lunch here. The seasonal beer was great. Brewed on the premises. The crawfish mac and cheese and the crispy chicken Salads were fantastic. Great balcony overlooking the river and steam paddle wheeler boat.

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.
