Lovely atmospheric bar for a late night drink, or, in our case, to grab something to eat if you turn up in the district late at night when other places have stopped serving food. The service was friendly, the atmosphere good, and the food just right.

Stopped in here because there was a vegan option for my daughter. The food was good and service was wonderful. Not overly crowded or loud.

They have a half sandwhich and soup of the day special for $8.00. The tomato soup was great. We got 1/2 a grilled cheese and 1/2 a philly cheese sandwhich. They have a good selection of local beers. Frozen Irish Coffee is fabulous-$5.00, for a small and $6.50, for a large.

It was obviously a locals bar scene with lots of foot traffic coming in for a drink and then leaving to presumably hit another bar down the street. The iced Irish Coffee was a popular choice.

This is definitely a locals place. It's a dingy bar with food. A person in our party was vegetarian and spotted this place. What a disappointment. I was tempted to walk out which I should have done. The place smells of something that isn't good. One person was sick for a day and our vegetarian was rather embarrassed.

Went here on the rec of a bartender at O'Briens -- quick lunch on a weekday, it was dead but the food was great! Highly recommend for a quick lunch on Frenchman street with a wide array of options - we aren't vegan but noticed a lot of options!

Heard about this place from a local and it definitely surpassed my expectations. Not only is the food extremely reasonable in price (my wrap and chips were $9), but the food was absolutely AMAZING!! I highly recommend this place.

Neighborhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
