Our tour guide recommended this place for the seafood. However, when we arrived, we had other entrees. My husband had the grilled chicken po boy ($12) and I had the corn, potato and sausage boil ($8). We had the blackened alligator for an appetizer. Everything was good and the service was spot on (THANKS LACY for the best service I... More

Stopped in here after a recommendation from a friend. We were not disappointed! Had good service, food was served hot and there is huge portions. The fried fish was some of the best I ever had. A must try when visiting the area!

We stopped here because it was close to where we were. The building didn't feel as authentic to New Orleans as I would like, but the food was very good. We had bbq shrimp, fried alligator, and gumbo. Prices seemed a little high for amount you got especially on alligator appetizer. However the bread pudding was roped with a praline... More

Great restaurant. The BBQ shrimp was delicious as well as the shrimp boil. Too bad the crawfish were out of season. We would have loved to try them also. One of our party had the salmon with a side of grits and enjoyed it. Service was great also.

We are visiting New Orleans with our two grandchildren ages 12 and 14. I selected this place because the children showed an interest in Crawfish. (We found out they were out of season upon arrival so went with other items on the menu.) We arrived at 13:00 to find the place full with the exception of one four top to... More

Near the Cafe du Monde sits this restaurant that has been around since the early 1800s. We started with the garlic-herb char-grilled 1/2 dozen oysters & knew we were in for a treat! They were exceptional! The shrimp- oyster fried combo was good but we saved room for desert. Their praline white chocolate bread pudding was a home run! Come... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living 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 across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
