Our plan to eat at a nearby establishment fell through and since we were pressed for time, we decided to eat at Copper Monkey. Atmosphere and service were great! We ordered wings, a burger and a grilled chicken sandwich. The tater tots were delicious (crispy...how I like them) , chicken seasoned and tender…definitely glad we made the choice to stop here. The 80’s music was an added bonus!More

After a long day walking around the French Quarter, we dropped in here before heading next door to our hotel. The staff is absolutely fabulous and so welcoming. If it wasn't for the bar maid, we would've never found jazz music at Cafe Benet. It...was nice to walk in to a place that made you feel at home, when we were visiting this city.More

Found out right before my trip last week, that the CM was open again, and I couldn't wait to go back. Enjoyed sitting at the bar. The kind lady who works the bar late in the afternoon makes one of the best Hurricanes in NOLA;...she tailors it to my taste, and I really enjoyed my drink. Had a fried shrimp poboy, but lightly dressed, as I cannot taste lettuce and tomato since the Covid fiasco. Still a great sandwich, with good bread, lots of shrimp and delicious, fries, too. They do make a good beignet dessert with banana sauce, but I was too full after finishing my plate, this visit. Grabbed my drink, and headed the half block back up to Bourbon Street, to enjoy the night. Well worth a stop for a poboy, gumbo, dessert, and a great drink!More

Great little bar with good food. We walked right in for lunch (past the crazy Oceana Grill line) and had amazing catfish po boys. Definitely recommend stopping in here for a quick lunch and some drinks.

Bar is OK but I ordered the $14 bowl of gumbo and I got a paper plate with about a cup of gumbo over a little dab of rice. Just enough to excite my appetite, very disappointed.

This is just a few steps off of Boubon Street and frequented by the locals. It has a bar with seating and about five tables but the food is delicious and reasonably priced. Open for lunch and supper.

Good burgers made to order. Fast, friendly bar service. Easy to converse without shouting over loud music. Good place for casual dining after a busy day of sightseeing.

I had the peanut butter burger with sweet potato fries & it was all amazing! My husband had the steak quesadilla, and he said the steak on it was so tender! The place had great service as well! Check it out!

Walked right past all of these people standing in line for another restaurant. They are all missing out on a gem. Great local food. Great drinks and a fun staff.

Bartender was having a lot of fun despite having to take care of everything out front. We stopped here for dinner and stayed a bit because of a downpour. My wife thought it was very clean. I wanted an Oyster Po Boy and Copper Monkey’s...was excellent. My wife enjoyed her meal as well- a loaded bowl with chicken, cheese, and potatoes. Most definitely would go here again...to avoid some of the craziness. Nice little bar with good food.More

Food came out fast and hot and with a smile. Good service is really hard to come by in Nola. Great Value. The jambalaya and etouffee are made in house. My burger was actually medium rare as ordered. Love the sweet potato fries. Definitely will...come back.More

The bartender was great. I travel alone and it’s nice to have company. The place was really slow on a Monday after the saints played. I tried the jambalaya from another reviewer. Really good. Not too hot but it creeps up on you. Reasonably priced.
