3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Used a Groupon for lunch to grab a quick bite. Try the Shepard's Pie it was very tasty. Disappointed in their "Coolinary" menu which was a grill cheese and with fruit and pickles. The sandwich didn't appear grilled but had cheese melted in between two slices of bread. Serve was slow and there was hardly anyone in the place.

We really enjoyed the Irish menu with a New Orleans twist, and the pear cider was outstanding. It felt very much like pubs we had visited in Ireland, albeit a little quieter. We would recommend this restaurant for a hearty meal in a very friendly, fun place.

Cheers to your health indeed as the sign above the door proclaims, Slainte! The food is scrumptious and gluten-free menu available. My grilled chicken salad was enormous so I bagged part of mine for later. My husband is happy wherever Guinness is served so he wouldn't have complained if his bangers and mash hadn't been grand. We hit the night... More

Used a Groupon, highly recommend if you're on a budget, they also have great happy hour specials from 3-6 with small bites of fish n chips, bangers n mash and shepherds pie so you can try them all! Also half priced beer, wine and wells, I love getting a deal! However our first visit was at night using a groupon... More

We visited this establishment again after remembering how nice it was on a previous trip several years ago. Unfortunately it has gone downhill drastically. The restaurant was 2/3 empty which seemed odd to us on a Saturday night; that should have been a sign. The food quality was how we remembered, quality bar food. However the service was deplorable.

After reading reviews, I had to stop! There was a huge, delicious smelling, buffet going on; so I didn't eat. I requested a Irish coffee from Betty, though. Then the gentleman next to me had to have one, too! Make sure you stop!

My hosts suggested the Irish House as a lovely place to dine but I wasn't sure. Why would I get Irish food in New Orleans I thought. But from the time Aria greeted me at the door, to the time I left, my experience was unforgettable. Inside is a beautiful Irish themed restaurant mixing the feel of an upscale restaurant... More

Visited as we were walking the Avenue. Had a beer after the bar tender offered samples. Had an appetizer. Bar Tender mentioned that on Tuesdays, they offer 2 for 1 fish & chips. Decided we would be back to try. Glad we did, as the meals were simply delicious. Also have trivia on Tuesdays, makes for an enjoyable evening.

They have a very extensive beer menu that includes at least one gluten-removed beer. Their food menu also indicates gluten free, paleo and vegan meals. In the past I've found their food somewhat average, but my most recent meal (the full Irish breakfast) was excellent. I ordered the eggs over easy, and they were cooked perfectly. Everything on the plate... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
