The service here is amazing. Everyone is so nice and friendly! The local beer on tap are huge and nicely priced. However, the food was just ok. I had the blacken chicken jambalaya which was nothing special, I thought it would be a lot better. My fiance had the seafood platter with fries, and it looked like a seafood poutine.... More

The wife and I had dinner here on a Sunday evening and both the food and service were great. The crab cakes were very good as was the blackened redfish. No complaints.

This is an unassuming bar where you can watch the Saints play and enjoy a variety of New Orleans specialties and wash them down with your favorite adult beverage. We had the sampler and it included jambalaya, crawfish etouffee, and another items that slips my mind. We added red beans and rice and split the four cups for the two... More

Decent food but the service ruined the entire experience. Our waiter could have cared less about helping us. Our food came out at different times, cups stayed empty, one drink didn't come out until halfway through breakfast. Very disappointed, especially since it's rated so well on Trip Advisor.

Everything was delicious! We ordered the red fish lightly blackened, lightly blackened grilled chicken jambalaya and the crab cake appetizer. Glad we ordered the blackened light as it had tons of flavor without all the salt. The atmosphere is warm, inviting and fun... but not crazy Bourbon street fun! My husband claimed it to be his favorite restaurant this visit... More

We liked the lunch menu for this place so we decided to go in. Our server was pretty slow but my crab cakes made up for that. They were so meaty and flavorful! They came with this delicious orange sauce. My boyfriend got the shrimp po-boy, his cousin got the BBQ shrimp and her husband got the roast beef po-boy.... More

Ordered roast pork po-boy. Pork was in chunks too big to eat. Meat had no seasoning. Was tough. Tried to cut it up but it was still not edible so I just ate the bread and fries, which were good. Daughter ordered a side salad. About 6 leafs of mixed greens, 2 huge slices of onion that nobody could have... More

Just enjoyed a good meal! Blackened shrimp with jambalaya was great! My friend enjoyed the chicken alfredo pasta. Prices were good for the area.

This place is comfortable and casual with lots of options for food. It's centrally located in the French Quarter. I like it. The service was good.

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.
