Went for lunch for our last meal. Inside recently redone for an update, but old New Orleans ambience remains. Our food was outstanding--raw oysters seafood gumbo, fried shrimp, red beans & rice. Service was okay and kitchen was slower than slow. Our server did not timely update us and we were informed of the problem by another server. Took away... More

My husband and I ended up here accidentally. The restaurant we intended to visit was closed. Frankie and Johnny happened to be in the neighborhood and we were starving. I didn't want to go in because it looked like a run down bar, but we were too hungry to want to keep driving around. Wow, were we surprised! The food... More

I didn't actually eat there but I had cause to contact them for some copies of receipts to process for an expense report. I'm sure they have a million better things to be doing than hunting down weeks old receipts but they did it quickly, efficiently and with great customer service. I'm going there to shake Dave's hand and have... More

I'm a local and have had this on my bucket list to try, so when my husband had to work late we met up for supper here. We went on a weeknight so I was able to get a parking spot in the parking lot and not have to do on street parking. We ordered onions rings (thicker cut-good) and... More

We visited for dinner on a saturday night. We sat at the bar and ordered appetizers and drinks. The food arrived quickly and everything was wonderful. I especially recommend the oyster nahos and the seafood gumbo. The service was excellent from Mark the bartender. Great place to mingle with locals.

I had lunch at the bar, the new remodel looks wonderful, the place is nicer, but still down to earth. Everyone was friendly and the service was spot on. The shrimp platter was classic, way too big for me, but I made a dent in it. I really have always loved this restaurant and glad it's still around.

I'd definitely eat here again if I found myself in this area, but I wouldn't go far out of my way to do so. The food is good, the service good, and the price fair.

Was seated and waited 45 minutes before someone even bothered to take our drink(we had to hunt someone down), food was average seafood. I wouldn't bother going out of your way when you can eat the same food downtown

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
