We asked a few locals where to go for great food (away from tourists) and a few recommended this place. We went there twice last summer and twice our last visit in June 2016. It turns out the bartender actually went to school in my home town and we have mutual friends. SMALL WORLD! Love the food and awesome service.

My wife and I were staying next door and wanted a quick appetizer & drink one night and decided to try the Copper Monkey. The place was very clean, the food was good & plentiful, and the bartenders were great. On our first visit I ordered a vodka gimlet and was pleasantly surprised that the bartender ( I can't remember... More

Funky in two ways. Good and bad. It's a dive bar so expect the basics with inexpensive booze and dive bar atmosphere aplenty. They do have a nice courtyard out back though if you want to get away from the masses.

The food was good, not fantastic, but good enough that you wont mind eating it. We had jalepeno poppers, crawfish poppers and crab cakes. None of them stood out as the best of our trip, but none of them were bad either. The place can be a bit noisy, but not loud, and compared to bourbon street, it's downright quiet.... More

Had the crawfish etuflee and it was very good. Jalepeno poppers were good too. The bartender was funny and served the entire place and she was pretty too. All was good until a roach ran across our table. Luckily we were finished eating. Decent place off the tourist thoroughfare. I would go back.

We were hungry for a Poboy....the bouncer at Erin Rose pointed us to the Copper Monkey. We each ordered a Catfish Poboy...our favorite! I ate half of mine, my boyfriend ate all of his. 3 hours later we were wide awake with stomach cramps & taking turns in the bathroom. We were sick the last day of our vacation unable... More

When in Rome do as the Romans but when in Nola, do as you please. So we did. And it was good! Get yourselves to this place.

Nothing much was open after 11 p.m. for a late night snack other than Bourbon Street. So we lucked out at this place. Berger was delicious and salad too. Even though he was busy, bartender was fun and attentive. Nice snack. Would recommend if you get the late night munches.

We stayed next door at the Hotel Le Marais and our first night we finished the night here, left the bar at 5am. It served good food and good drinks and very close to our hotel so overall it was great for us.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
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 of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
