They have good salads and sandwiches but my favorite thing on their menu is the French onion soup. It is delicious.

Overpriced food and not very well done either. The "seafood plate" is basically deep-fried everything, with chips, which were only warm.

... but the food and service were mediocre at best. Although hyped as “where locals eat,” it was disappointing. Three cold scoops of dry rice (with a few beans and very sparse sausage), and cold banana bread pudding. Service was painfully slow and it wasn’t...More

Although I hate to admit this, we actually stopped to eat here because I needed to sit down after walking a lot and we knew it was going to rain soon. My husband did not like the muffuletta, but we did like the rest of...More

Love the environment. We always sit at the bar and always order a French onion soup. Foods good too. It's a great place to stop in and have a drink while exploring that side of the quarter

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

well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
