That's all you need to know. Skip the one in the quarter, they aren't as good. Go to the Deanie's in Bucktown and order bbq shrimp. I swear every time I eat them, I love them more. And I've had them many many times.

This place should be a must for everyone visiting the French Quarter and looking for a restaurant that has tasty food, large portions, at a good bargain. Try the Voodoo cocktail. We also recommend the seafood and poboys. We were also very impressed with the bread pudding; My husbands favorite dessert. We enjoyed it so much, we returned several nights... More

Does not compare to the French quarter location! Service was rather slow, staff not very friendly. The shrimp po-boys in the French quarter have twice the shrimp for the same place. Probably wouldn't return to this location.

Best food and definitely the best price in the area! You can't beat the quality of their seafood! Hands down the best onion rings I've ever had! My favorite dish is the crawfish quartet and I get it almost every single time I am there! From the complimentary boiled potatoes to the fried seafood, Deanie's is the best!!!!

We stopped by here on a Saturday night when staying a few miles away in Metarie - had heard about it on Travel Channel and were not disappointed. Old school, rustic feel and the place was packed, with what appeared to be almost all locals, always a good sign. Despite an overcrowded lobby we waited only about 30 min and... More

You won't find better fried shrimp in NOLA than at Deanie's Seafood in Bucktown. Service was very good, food arrived timely and hot even though they were very busy. We have never been disappointed dining at Deanie's at either of their locations in NOLA.

The BBQ Shrimp at Deanie's is one of the best things I've ever tasted! I don't know how else to say it...sometimes I dream about it at night...It's super messy, but if you don't leave shrimp all over your face, you did it wrong!

I don't even know where to start. Everything was great! Service, drinks, the food...wow. It's odd I've never been before, even though I'm local! I'll be back for sure! The best fried seafood I have had aside from home made!!! Kudos!
