We left one place still hungry with a much thinner wallet, and found this place. Wish we had stopped here first! Great service & food. (Best so far on trip). Alligator sausage with potato salad had lots of flavor. Crawfish dip gave comfort! Will return.

Visiting at a conference. Wanted a place that was good and reasonably priced; this fit the bill. Quick service, good food, moderate price and no long lines to get seated. Not gourmet fair, but good, hearty meals. All my companions were pleased.

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

So sorry, didn't notice about the TV. I think there may have been, but no volume. You are correct, prices in line with other nice restaurants. Maybe $100 per person, but we had both drinks and wine.

This was the worst dining experience I have ever had in the French Quarter. What a disappointment! I can't remember what you call what I had but it was a seafood dish that was supposed to have several types of shellfish. It was $38. What I got was a plate with what appeared to be and tasted like a generic can of tomato sauce with a few bits of shell fish in it but most of that was just claws and shells that I had to pick through. There were a couple tiny shrimp and two tiny mussels. You could literally fit what actual eatable shellfish meat in in a shot glass. I'm not exaggerating. So, what I got was basically just a dish with some generic tomato sauce and two little pieces of bread. My wife had a steak costing about the same my dish. It was so tough and so full of gristle that it was almost inedible. She couldn't eat it so I tried some and I could hardly cut through the gristle, let alone eat it. Only a couple ounces of the so-called 14 ounce steak were edible and that was tough and tasteless. In short, we were ripped off. It's as simple as that. I have never had an experience in the French Quarter like this in all the years we have gone there. It was unbelievable. It made me wonder if perhaps they were planning on closing down soon and didn't worry about making customers satisfied anymore. It really was that bad. You've been warned. On the other hand, the waiter was OK - nothing special but friendly. When we left, we actually had to find another restaurant to eat because we were still hungry and neither of us are big eaters.

One more thing: Someone said we may have just had a "bad luck night." There should be no such thing as "bad luck" at a restaurant. The restaurant should not depend on luck! And, again, both our meals were terrible. That's... More

I agree, check out the website, but my recollection is the entrees are $20-30 or more. Don't remember if that comes with a salad but I don't think so.
