This place has a nostalgic quality. The woodwork and decor is very old school campy..... it now has a lot more tvs (way too many) The beer selection is great (extensive before beer was cool.) Great bar food... fried deliciousness ... One gripe... the fries here used to be legendary .... like very thick potato chips ... in circles ....... More

So many choices but only tried one, a brown sugar infused Lagunitas. Large portions on appetizers. I had fries and fried pickles while watching college basketball on one of many screens. Parking not easy, but great bar and easy to see why the NOLA college students come here.

We stopped in with our out of town guests for some mid-afternoon oysters. Cooters is near our business so it was convenient for us, but I would have driven across town if needed. The oysters were shucked by hand after we ordered and they were as good we have ever had! Our guests were very pleased with the atmosphere and... More

Came here for a beer and it just happened to coincide with Happy Hour and game 6 of the world series so one beer turned into more. Oysters on the half shell were also on happy hour prices. They were amaaaazing. Fun place for a sports show, beers and snacks.

This is a tavern/bar environment. Many fine choices of craft beer and absolutely delicious food. Fried oyster platter with a large mixed green salad; Jalapeno burger (quite large); shrimp and oyster po-boy which was jam packed and excellent.

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
