I had the Eggplant Napoleon appetizer. It was a tower of delicious! Fried eggplant was stacked with shrimp in a crayfish sauce. It was a unique dish that was well done. The portion was enough to make a whole meal. Very enjoyable meal.

We wanted a reasonably price, family friendly,come as you are restaurant within walking district from our Garden District hotel. Joey K's was a great find and exactly what we were looking for. Prices ranged from $10-$20 per entree. Service was good. I asked to change the fried catfish to boiled in my tacos and they were happy to make the... More

After listening to much fanfare about this place we visited with high hopes. Although the waitress took our drink order quickly she proceeded to let 15 minutes click off the clock as she chatted it up with one of the patrons at the bar while putting our order together. Apps came out in a reasonable time but soon after our... More

Server was a little sleepy and didn't bring out our friends cup of gumbo as a starter like he promised and robot'd his way through the polite enjoy your meal/thank you for your custom speeches. Shame as this place is a local favourite. So I guess they let that slide for the good food. Ordered tenders which were huge and... More

We stopped in for a mid afternoon bite on the recommendation of the guide we had on a Garden District walking tour. We were seated promptly by our friendly server. Not being very hungry we asked her about some appetizer selections, and she suggested the Eggplant Napoleon as a good start. We went ahead and ordered that while we considered... More

Found Joey K's when we were looking for a local spot for dinner. We were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent. We had a shrimp remoulade salad that was prepared with grilled shrimp and a very good remoulade sauce. We also had a corn and crab bisque, fried shrimp, and, a last minute add on when we saw...

Overall it was a nice place to try. We took the bus from canal street to the restaurant. We got off right at the restaurant and had immediate seating on Friday evening at 6:3pm. We had a bowl of gumbo which was just okay. I wouldn't rate it super high, but it wasn't bad either. My husband had the Friday... More

I've been here twice, and I wasn't disappointed either time. This time, I had the red beans and rice which was outstanding. I will go back here next time I'm in New Orleans.

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.
