AMAZING selection of draft beers at great prices. Check out front and back bar! Mostly $5 some as high as $8 and pitchers are a real bargain. Between the front and back bar must be 100 different ones. Food is ok, fried oysters. I ordered the fried oyster platter which comes with fries and a salad. They told me they... More

Fun, casual place for lunch or dinner. You order food at one register, check out, and then go into the bar to order a drink if you want it. Not like sitting down and being served, but the hamburgers are very good!

Met friends for drinks and food at Cooter Browns. Ordered habanero wings, fries w/ debris and curds and muffalata. The wings were very hot but still had good flavor. The muffalata was top notch and the fries fill the empty spots. They also have a very large variety of beers. Before the night was over we split a dozen oysters.... More

We always make a stop at Cooter Brown's when we're in New Orleans. Great food, drinks and beer selection. Get out of the French Quarter and make a visit to Cooter Brown's!

Friendly bartender and lots of TV's so you can watch the big game. Too many beer choices to mention. Lots of local craft brews. Surprising twist, strawberry rosemary lemonade - summer special - very tasty. Above average sports bar with some personality.

My husband and I went here based on a recommendation by our tour guide. Its a dark bar but the food is good and the oysters are great! The beer selection was really good and the bartender was friendly on a quiet afternoon lunch time.

Get ready to cozy up with your fellow patrons and enjoy delicious perfectly cooked French cuisine. The service was good, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was so local. We ordered the lentils as an appetizer. Delicious. Be sure to get there early because they run out of their mouthwatering made daily desserts

This is a local tavern that has excellent food! Though out of the New Orleans typical tourist area, it has a varied menu of expected New Orleans food, & is very reasonably priced. Well worth going & is loved by locals.

I live near by and every time I'm back in town, this is the only place I go to for Shrimp Po-Boys. Nice little bar, with great food, friendly staff, lots of TVs and Pool tables.

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.
