The selection of seafood is great. The oysters were very fresh. Great variety of beer on tap. Servier was a little confused with the order. I would still go back anytime

We were in town as the visiting team so we didn't have a tailgate. This is a great place to drink before the game. Lots of options! I didn't get to try the food but it looked good! Definitely get your beer in a crowler.

The blackened alligator is... More

The atmosphere is the one of a cafe with nice music, quite noisy but it's ok, and the waitresses are taking care ok. We ordered one of the house's specialty, shrimps in a spicy creamy salsa, with some kind of pie, that was still frozen inside. As I'm used to to spoil food, I did not mention this, but I'm... More

So, I recieved a graduate degree from LSU and wanted to come help after the floods. I worked a 10 hour day doing "mud-outs" on homes with a volunteer group and afterwards needed a cold one. It was perfect. As usual, the chimes was the spot where we laughed loud, told stories, had wonderful food and fantastic drinks. Go for... More

Whether you are looking for a bar scene, a great meal, or both, the Chimes is a definite. In the heart of LSU's campus, the chimes welcomes parents and students alike. I was in town visiting my daughter (an LSU student) while she participated in the pageant. After the pageant, my family, and two other families decided we'd all go... More

I work on campus and can walk to this location (and do a lot). They always have 2-3 young ladies at the door to greet and seat you. Very few time have I had to wait for a table. The servers are knowledgable and friendly. The menu has a wide variety of food. This will continue to be my go-to... More

Chimes is known as a great place to go eat before a Tiger's football game. It's also a great location to go after the game. We were immediately seated. The restaurant was full but not packed. Our party of four was immediately seated. We arrived ~30 minutes after the end of the game. While the restaurant was busy, our waitress... More

I took an old friend of 30 years to this place. I have been going for years. Very popular. A couple of locations. One right at the gates of LSU. My favorite is two things. Great variety of tap beers and the marinated crab claws are my favorite. To e, very authentic South LA food.

It was started in the early 1980s, near the main campus of LSU. It's known for comfort food and drinks. Nice selection of appetizers and entrees. Fried crab fingers are a must. Seafood poboys or fried platters are delicious. Price is reasonable and worth the visit.

Thank Wazir M
