This restaurant is located on the corner on Chartres street. The menu is “vacation mode affordable” if you are one to splurge a bit. We had fried green tomato chips which were delicious. We also had cashew crusted redfish with a praline sauce, steamed vegetables...More

‘Can we eat at the bar?’ Hostess: ‘I don’t know’ * blank stare*. So we get a table. Middle of the Quarter and Bon Jovi is blaring. Waitress was very pushy. We finally ordered after a bit of arguing about what we wanted. (Us arguing...More

Super-friendly staff, even at a late hour. Its a great location to soak in the French Quarter ambience with cocktail or beer in hand. We didn't eat, but the food looked great!

Good vibes. Good service and excellent food. Satisfied my tastebuds after an afternoon of walking around town. Stuffed crayfish filet with potato and fresh veggies. Sooo good. My gin and tonic perfect. Try this place out as an option for lunch or dinner.

I had the Blackened Shrimp Jambalaya as an entree, and the Corn and Crab Chowder, for an appetizer. Normally I’m not an Jambalaya fan, but I figured I couldn’t go wrong with it, in NOLA. It did not disappoint at all!! Delicious! Only thing I...More

Love this place. Should I ever return to New Orleans, I would revisit. Staff incredibly friendly and good suggestions re: cocktails/food. We had several appetizers instead of entrees, and then followed with dessert. Nothing disappointed us. Our mouth watered at everyone's food orders as they...More

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

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively

I don't think so. We went the evening we arrived and just walked right in. If you had a large party it might be different.

Chartres House is a local favorite—a French Quarter landmark serving casual dishes and classic drinks in an intimate, historical environment. This antebellum building, once a favorite haunt of Tennessee Williams, is now home to a menu featuring duck quesadillas, classic New Orleans BBQ shrimp, muffalettas and more. Dine on the balcony or in the intimate courtyard, or join the local crowd after hours for quick bites and cocktails.
