I felt like we were back in time with the heavy dining tables and old world feel here. We were greeted immediately and taken to a table for two. Our server was great, and he was very attentive checking in on us often. Started with...a couple of Bohemian Julep's (and later got two more!) and the fried green tomato/shrimp remoulade appetizer. The appetizer was tasty, we had just had shrimp remoulade at another place that we preferred more. I am guessing that remoulade is like salsa (I am from the southwest what can I say) and everyone makes it a little different and everyone has different expectations. I ordered the Seafood Pie, my friend ordered the Red Beans & Rice (he was mesmerized that it had alligator in it). I will start with his take on his meal -- he loved it, said it was super tasty and flavorful. For me, I had struggled with my choice of Seafood Pie, as I was leaning towards the Chicken/Waffle. I wish I had leaned more. The Seafood Pie was okay but overpriced @ 27 as I barely found the crab. What my issue was, was the biscuit. The bottom of it was rock hard (overcooked) and it had that texture of having been reheated in a microwave. It was a bit disappointing, but everything else was good.More

Excellent customer service and my family was immediately helped. The food was great! Our waiter Damon was amazing and he gave us history on quite a bit here in New Orleans.

Enjoyed a Monday morning brunch. No wait for seating. Best service ever! Damon Sam knew the menu, answered questions, entertained us with song, and even brought us special Birthday crowns! Would definitely recommend!

We came to New Orleans on a friends trip for our birthdays. Our waiter was Damon and he was awesome! We ordered bottomless mimosas and he made sure our glasses stayed full. He also sang happy birthday and gave us a birthday gift. He made...our brunch very special!More

This restaurant was recommended by our Travel Company, hence we went here for dinner. Not to be recommended. Freezing cold under the all-too efficient air conditioning. It was our waitresse’s birthday, which she seemed much more interested in celebrating than attending to her customers. The...mixed mains of various local dishes were average at best. Bread was stone dry. Service was rushed and inattentive. When we asked for a bottle of wine, our waitress literally shouted across the whole restaurant, ‘what, you want a BOTTLE’?? So rude. And she forgot our fries. This place lives on its past, it needs a good boot up the backside to bring it into the present.More

We came across this restaurant in the French quarter and decided to go in as it was quite busy. A bit if a mistake even though the atmosphere was good. We waited about 20+ minutes before we were attended by a waitress and another 20...minutes plus for the food. My husband had a beef Poboy which did not look appetising but tasted better than it looked. I ordered the seafood platter which was tasteless. I have had much better in less expensive restaurants. Due to the slow service 15% was taken off the bill unasked which was a good gesture. However, I could not recommend the food here.More

Visited this restaurant with the family, including 2 small ones. The food and atmosphere was great but the hospitality and the staff were AMAZING!! From the first greeting at the door to the server to the other staff, it was fantastic. Our server, Damon, was...over the top from welcoming us to offering his personal suggestions from the menu. The food was also exceptional. Typical cajun/New Orleans dishes that did not disappoint. Will certain return there next time we are in NOLA>More

the restaurant is clean, the service is fast and friendly, the food is great. we had the pleasure of having damon as our server, and he was absolutely wonderful. he made our experience better after we had terrible experience trying to dine elsewhere prior. we...stopped here after having an awful experience at another restaurant, where it was filthy and the hostess rolled her eyes at us because we wanted a table, not the bar. so we decided to get up after waiting a while for a server to even greet us. that terrible service and bad attitude, wound up leading us here, where we couldn’t have been happier! thank you damon!More

I can't remember her name, but the woman who was a server was fun and wonderful. She's been there for years, so I'm sure I'll get to see her again. The food was good, not the very best we've had . . . but good!...It was all that we needed for a tasty, filling lunch. They also have good Bloody Marys!More

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
