We happened upon this place while in New Orleans. The food was great. Our server, Tom, was very attentive and was friendly. We had to have two tables due to COVID regulations but the employees didn't miss a beat. Would recommend this to all.

We sat at the bar on Christmas Eve and had a great time. Our bartender was awesome! His knowledge of bourbon made my husband very happy with something a little different. The oysters were fresh, plump and juicy. They were shocked perfectly with no shell.

This was our 2nd visit here and we tried the Rib Eye and man we were so happy we did. When you eat here you have to have a Boubon Milk Shake they are to die for!!!

Food was good, service was great. We had a party of 16, and were accommodated splendidly. The restaurant stayed busy, and we were treated well.

Great food and beverage. Fantastic happy hour deal for oysters ($1 per). Jeremy is the best server on staff. He made our dinner just a great experience. GIVE THIS MAN A RAISE!

We had dinner reservations and this highly recommended restaurant did not disappoint. The crab fingers were amazing. Our waiter, Connor,was very attentive and checked on us often. We will definitely eat here again whenever we're in town.

We ordered take away Thanksgiving dinner, the order wasn’t filled correctly we were missing 2 of 4 salads. The salads we did receive had an alcohol dressing that was awful and ruined the 2 salads we received. When we called to have the “manager” resolve...the missing and poor food, the offer was come back and we’ll give you an appetizer and no offer to resolve the inaccurate order or poor food. If you’re feeling lucky in New Orleans try the casino over Bourbon House.More

This was the first place we ate while in NOLA, and overall was the best place!! It was clean, fairly upscale, impeccable service—but the charbroiled oysters, was the best I have ever eaten!! This will be a regular stop for us from now on.

Planned to go elsewhere but ended up here, happy accident! Enjoyed broiled oysters, small plates of shrimp and Cajun potatoes all very good. Husband had the shrimp and grits, said they were delicious. Had 2 different old fashioneds, one regular, one with chicory liquor. Actually...liked the plain one best.More

We had an amazing meal here. Their happy hour was amazing. Our server Ken was great. The chocolate pecan tart was amazing. I’m not a big oyster fan, but here they were the best I have ever had. Will go back again

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
