This place was a winner everything was good and I loved those spicy onion rings. I only got the half platter and couldn't finish it. Great choice

I love the hot potatoes that provide instead of bread. Plenty of great seafood for a reasonable price. Glad to see they haven't lost anything since Hurricane Katrina blew us out of town.

The best thing about Deanie's is that it is reliable and consistent. Their fried seafood is always good, and while their BBQ shrimp is good, the portion has dramatically changed over the years. It used to be served in a large cast iron skillet with...More

We came here our first night in town. I heard the gumbo was the best so I had to try it. I got the seafood one and I enjoyed it. Just a bit of spice at the end to warm you up. Nice flavor though....More

Delicious seafood platter. Highly recommend. It gets a little busy. Might have to wait for a table but completely worth it. Best fried seafood ever!

Depends on size platter, Giant is about $60, feeds four, Half about $30. Combo seafood platter is about $20.
Do you offer a BBQ shrimp sauce mix in packages? like in 1.5 sizes New Orleans Style? Or some other type? Thank you.

Deanie's Seafood is loved by locals as one of the "Best Seafood Restaurants in New Orleans" (Gambit Weekly, Times Picayune), "Best Place for Crawfish" and the favorite place for fresh Louisiana seafood prepared in our signature Creole seasonings. For over 50 years Deanie's has been serving huge portions of the best boiled, broiled and fried seafood. Its two restaurants in Bucktown and the French Quarter earned a Zagat food and service rating of "very good to excellent," and its French Quarter private dining spaces are perfect for special events, rehearsal dinner and weddings.
