I think I aged while I waited for my drinks - meaning it took way too long. And $16 for a bloody mary? C'mon now. Anyway, the only thing I'd go back for is for Jeffery's service on the oyster bar.

Got in to town late and walked in 45 minutes before closing. Great service and got an outstanding plate of a dozen chargrilled oysters and an oyster PoBoy. The oysters were great and the PoBoy was top notch!

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port

well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Not many places in NOLA are what I would call kid friendly. They all allow kids but you might want to take a look at their menu. They have a great burger which might be of interest to kids depending on their ages.
