Great beer list, wonderful food, engaged service. It has great character and a wonderful staff. I have not been disappointed with anything from the menu. If I had a complaint it would be that they give you too much food.

We visited this bar between a wedding ceremony and the reception. Being from the south, I've been to NOLA half a dozen times and I must say, the proprietors of this establishment have done an excellent job imparting the spirit of the Crescent City into the air of this place!

You cannot get more authentic Cajun cuisine than that offered by Moe Joe's. Prices have been elevated recently, but it is worth the cost.

My husband and I went out with 2 other couples. We love going to Moe Joe's. We have been going for the last 11 or more years. The food is delicious and the cocktails are tasty. My husband likes the beer selection and I like the martinis! I recommend the gummy bear martini! The staff is friendly and accommodating.
