Worth the wait!

Great food and a great server. I'd never had whole boiled potatoes as a side to my beer before but they were some of the tastiest potatos I've ever had. We shared a salad and shrimp platter which was more than enough for two of us. Excellent. There was a line up but it didn't take that long to... read more

Very reasonably priced seafood, although quite popular. The lines start forming early in the afternoon, but it is worth the wait. Don't miss out on the potatoes!

It was ok. I have had better. I got the crawfish, shrimp, and crab pizza. It was ok but not great. My husband had the fried oysters and shrimp and he seemed to like it. We sat at the bar because the wait for a table was way too long. I don't think we will go back.

We learned from the server that this location no longer is owned by the original owners . Perhaps our dining experience would have been better at the smaller one along the riverfront that is apparently still in the family . Although the portions were generous, our plates consisted of mostly greasy food that wasn't even tasty so, I now know... More

When I travel, I like to get the opinions of the locals when it pertains to food. I asked several local Louisiana natives and they all pointed me in the direction of Deanie's. This is definitely a restaurant that won't disappoint. The flavor of the food will have you dreaming of their gumbo on your flight home! If it's too... More

I don't eat seafood but I was pleasantly surprised at how good and spicy the burger was! Fries were awesome! I'll go back even though I don't eat seafood!

I've been coming to this restaurant for years but lately it seems to have lost something. The raw oysters are great but the chargrilled oysters are unimaginative, especially considering the other options available locally. The new orleans bbq shrimp is good but the pasta bbq ship was not good. Basically 4 or 5 shrimp or shrimp pieces in a bbq... More

Didn't care too much for this place. Felt like a cafeteria, food was mediocre and the service not the greatest. Our waiter was ok, but the woman that actually served the food needs a few lessons. She looked completely miserable and threw the dishes down on the table. She also forgot to serve a dish, we had to hunt down... More

My wife and I ate at Deanie's, based on a suggestion from a local, and boy are we glad we listened. Now I travel all over the world for work, and I would have to say the Seafood and Deanie's was one of the best I have encountered. Again, based on the suggestion, we had the BBQ shrimp...AMAZING! the homemade... More

Went to Deanie's to see what all the fuss was about. We were seated in an area that was not the greatest. Our waitress seemed to want us to dine and dash. No small talk what so ever. We decided on the soup of the day- shrimp bisque and a spinach salad with fried oysters. The soup was a huge... More

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.
