We were recommended this restaurant by a few people during our stay but honestly were disappointed following our visit. The menu mainly featured fried platters of catfish, oysters and shrimp, soup and gumbo and po boy sandwiches. We went for a shrimp/catfish platter and gumbo. The gumbo was okay but we had way better at other restaurants and the fried... More

Went to this place based on reviews. It was very good. The place is big and very busy. Be warned that men must have sleeves on their shirts to come in. Weird, I know because there were a lot of woman dressed highly inappropriately and they had no problem with them. The temperature outside in August was over 100 degrees... More

First impression is that it is an upscale kind of diner, but not snobby or needing to dress up. The seafood on the menu is listed as fried but can be requested as broiled (which we did) and came out quite well. The boiled potatoes at the beginning were delicious and I could have easily had more if I wanted... More

This is definitely not the spot to grab a "Quick" bite. But they do know how to do seafood great. Just one block from Bourbon Street in the French Quarter it's a great refreshing lunch or dinner spot while you're exploring the French Quarter and some of the great things the city has to offer.

This is one of the restaurants practically around the corner from Chateau Orleans, where we stayed. The prices were moderate ($$-$$$), the menu interesting and the portions just about perfect. Most importantly, the food was delicious. Deanie's was one of the restaurants that came highly recommended and did not disappoint.

We visited New Orleans three years ago and voted Deanie's charbroiled oysters the best in the city. Nothing has changed. No more to say, just make sure you visit. Fried fish dinners are great too, portions are enormous and should also mention Victoria on the front desk, she is lovely and the perfect hostess.

That creamy, cheesy crawfish casserole has left fond memories for my husband and I. The boiled potato appetizer was a real surprise as they were cooked as my grandmother had done . Great place to spend a first night in NOLA to get a real feel for the city. What a fun place to visit!

Simply put, if you want some of the best-fried seafood in the New Orleans area, go to Deanies. My parents lived in New Orleans for about 15 years. Whenever we went to visit we went to Deane’s. Large portions and very tasty

We always make it to Deanie's on every trip to New Orleans. Start with the fresh Oysters and move on to the various seafood dishes. There is nothing on the menu that we have not tried and loved.

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.
