This is a popular garden district cafe. On Monday, late lunch time after a garden district walking tour, it was busy, but they moved folks through with friendly efficiency. We waited maybe 10 minutes for a table. It is obviously popular with locals; recommended by our guide, and sweet to see more than one elderly lady or gent greeted by... More

This place is not one people will tell you about, but it is my favorite place to take my family from out of town. They have the classic New Orleans dishes but for those who aren't as brave they have some great classic American dishes as well. The Eggplant Parm is my favorite and my husband loves their fried chicken

For starters, the place was nice. My wife ordered shrimp and fried green tomatoes, she said it was ok. I ordered creole jumbalya and it was so dry. The meat I thought was chicken, my wife tasted it and she said it was pork, it was dry. Not enough sausage in it either. The young man that was our waiter... More

Stopped into Joey K's for lunch while browsing Magazine St. I had one of the daily specials of Fried Fish Tacos and was very pleasantly surprised. Best fish tacos I've ever had! However, they were a little difficult and messy to eat. A lot of food stuffed into a small tortilla...but totally worth it for me! There were also many... More

We went to Joey K's on a Friday night and was seated immediately. For the appetizer we had the fried artichoke hearts. Those were served with marinara sauce. They were amazing. My guy and got the red beans and rice with sausage and the fried chicken. I enjoyed the red beans and rice but the sausage was no that good.... More

After hearing about Joey K's from our tour guide, we were convinced to try it out. I had the Thursday special "meatloaf" and he had the shrimp po boy. Both of us were happy with our choices. Average service, not rude but not friendly. I was there for the food not the staff. Haha

We stopped in this place based on a friend's reference. What a great call. Authentic down-south dishes, nice portions and reasonable priced. We ate outside; had great service; and the waitstaff could not have been more helpful and friendly. You must try the fried green tomatoes with shrimp and the red beans and rice. We will definitely return for more.

Simply one of the best meals I've eaten all week in New Orleans. This place is legit! Ordered the trout, which melted in my mouth. Staff was great. Reasonably priced for the amount of food they serve. Would def come back when traveling this way again!

Joey K's is a great place to stop for lunch while shopping on Magazine. The food is tasty and the employees are very friendly. Keep in mind, depending on the time of day you stop by, you may have to wait to be seated and wait once you've ordered. It is worth the wait. Enjoy!

This was our first dinner in New Orleans. Warm hospitality. The food is wonderful. The shrimp napoleon is rich & flavorful. Really good prices, most dinners are around $11.00

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
