My brother was visiting and we walked in without a reservation around 5 PM on a Friday night. We were immediately seated outside since it was nice out. My brother got the Jambalaya which he said wasn't great, but he's very picky. I had the crab and shrimp pasta, which was absolutely fantastic. The cooks are all from New Orleans... More

We had a weird experience... this place looks really cool from the outside and the decor/band was awesome but the hostess was really awkward. We stopped by around 10 pm on a Saturday night and she stopped us halfway inside to ask if we needed a seat, we replied no, we were here for a drink. She then proceeded to... More

Our server (Matt) was courteous and took good care of us while we were there. We had po boys, the crab and the fried catfish. The catfish was very tasty, crab was okay. The batter on the onion rings was very salty, couldn't eat them. It is a Mardi Gras themed bar for the most part, not exactly family oriented... More

So back here on business so I thought I would stop here again. Foods good but pricey and not great. Maybe it's because I've been to the French Quarter. So if have nothing to compare it to its good. But if you've been to the Bayou then you know authentic Cajun when you have it.

Almost all the good places in downtown Wilmington have a waiting list for Sunday lunch. Bourbon St wasn't at all busy. Now I know why. The burgers were just barely edible. The Bloody Mary had no garnish whatsoever. I rate the service as just adequate. There are many great restaurants in downtown. Skip this place.

We came for lunch today. Had a great time. Blackened oysters were amazing. Gumbo and jambalaya were very good. Shrimp was great. Nice selection of beer. I wish we had room for the beignets. Servers were so much fun. Staten Island lady made us feel like family.

We had the shrimp po'boy, a burger, and kids chicken tenders. They all turned out great and tasted delicious and fresh. Beignets for dessert were excellent too. The restaurant has a pretty authentic New Orleans vibe right down to the bathrooms :-/ May not be suitable for really young ones, but at lunch time it worked well for us. The... More

We decided to eat here as they advertised oysters and the location was convenient to our hotel. Drinks took 15 minutes (a Monday night; 5:30 pm. ; maybe 5 tables occupied) They had no raw oysters so we ordered their charbroiled oysters. These took at least 20 minutes to come out and were lukewarm but tasty (possibly this was because... More

Stopped in Bourbon Street last night around 6 pm. Surprisingly not crowded at all. Our server, Addison, was great. My friend raved about his friendliness and helpfulness. He was very accommodating. I had the crab cake appetizer which consisted of two large crab cakes with lots of crab and very little breading. I also ordered a house salad, which was... More

Just hands down yummy. The oysters totally rocked, had a shrimp app that was out of this world. Great wait staff and the decor was a lot of fun too
