Very good dinner. We tried the filet and the burger. Cozy place to have dinner. Would definitely eat here again.

Best Burger in NOLA!! The baked potato is awesome as well. There is a reason they don’t have many items on the menu. What they do, they do super well.

We had heard from a local that this was a place to go. We tried going during one of our last trips but the wait was over an hour long. This time we only had about a 15-minute wait. They have set up outdoor dining...areas in front of the restaurant but we were seated in front of the bar which was nice. The tables were nicely separated to allow for social distancing. The burgers, potatoes, and drinks were great. This will definitely be a place we visit again the next time we are in New Orleans.More

Have been going here since I was a kid and still leave here in awe at how good the burgers are over 40 years later. This is a must if you want a break from cajun, creole, seafood cuisines.

We stopped by Port of Call our first night in town and it was wonderful. We ordered the Red Turtle and Neptune’s Monsoon to drink. We learned the first night that NOLA knows how to make good drink, generous with rum and tequila. With these...drinks, you get a big cup to take with you that is great souvenir. We also enjoyed the baked potato and the hamburger!! Very yummy!!More

We were referred to Port of Call during our 2019 NOLA vist by our hotel, Rathbone Mansions. The food was so good that we had to return this year (2020) with our friends. Great food! Pam

Truly one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. I highly recommend it ! The baked potato was stuffed with cheddar and sour cream and was excellent as well. No question a return trip !

I guess I shouldn't be surprised bi it's number 1 rating. Tourist trap. Much better burgers available a lot of places.

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

I don’t think so. Because it is a kind of bar we almost don’t see children but I heard they can get in.
