My husband ordered the Grand Isle breakfast skillet and he was very pleased. He'd never had shrimp for breakfast. I ordered the Acadiana breakfast skillet, which had boudin, eggs and potatoes. Both came with a huge, delicious biscuit, as well. We also got an order...More

We came in here based on trip advisor reviews. Boudan balls were excellent! We both ordered the blackened redfish with etufee on top. OMG! Fabulous! Our server was fun and fast. Loved this place. We will come again.

I've had red beans and Rice at many places here in New Orleans but these were the best. The atmosphere is good and the service matched. Great jazz playing in background which added to ambiance. Good location close to good shopping and sightseeing.

It was 9:30 pm on a Sunday night. Poor service and average food. Guess the staff was tired after a busy Friday and Saturday night. The only good thing about this visit was there was only a five minute wait.

I came in with a group of friends starting at 6 but the staff was easily accommodating growing our seating number to 12. The food is OK. The cajun bloody Mary is to die for.

I ate here with a few friends for dinner and we really enjoyed what we ordered. We all split an appetizer, a burger and salad, and an order of the beignets for dessert. I would like to give the restaurant 4-stars, except they were out...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Management responded to my review of Huck Finn's. In the response it was stated that I was disappointed by the longer wait for service on the weekend. It was not on a weekend, it was a Thursday night. My husband had to order a burger because the only thing he could eat on his plate was the fish. The burger never arrived. We gave up and left.
