I had to try this place after reading some of the mediocre reviews. I'm glad I did! I have been to happy twice in a 5 day span! The happy hour menu is is small, but the items are great! The chicken nachos are a step above, and the wings have a sauce that is thick like molasses! You can... More

I travel a lot and look for authentic creole/cajun cuisine everywhere i go and I'm always disappointed. Nora Lee's did not disappoint!!! They make their gumbo with a delicious rue and their po boys remind me of home in New Orleans. I am definitely coming back before i leave Delaware!!! The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great!

Great place for music, food, and drinks! Nice and varied cocktail menu and they have a great happy hour too. The food specially the gumbo is awesome. Definitely go for some of their New Orleans specialities!

If you like the tastes of New Orleans, you cannot go wrong with Nora Lee's. This find of a gem in Old New Castle County serves up delectable Cajun and Creole food. The beverages are awesome and you cannot beat the ambience or the location.

Cajun food? Yep a nice variety of nawlins favorites. Prompt friendly service but no crawfish etouffee! Blackened fish was cooked well, nice flavor not overpowering. Mashed taters had a little "kick" and were creamy. Worth a second visit.

I always love visiting Old Newcastle. Found this wonderful New Orleans style restaurant. The food was delicious. My hubby had the meatloaf, he said it was so good. I had the blackened catfish and alligator jambalaya. First time I ever had alligator and it was delicious. Everything is made to order. The desserts were yummy. The server was very friendly....
