Food was excellent and you get a lot of it! I ordered the fried fish and it came with fries and onion rings! A lot of food. Several pieces of fish were included. Definitely enough to share. My husband got a specialty drink - the...Sweet Charlotte's Lemonberry Strawade. It was scrumptious! We were seated out on the balcony. It did not face Bourbon Street but you could still people watch. The balcony slanted and I was questioning whether it was safe but we didn't hit pavement so all is good.More

This was our go to restaurant in New Orleans. We vacationed 6 nights and ate here 3 times. Other nights included a wonderful $$$$ place and a forgettable place. You can wait here for a table or eat at the bar which is open. Nice...$24 to $28 dollar Cajun and Creole dishes. Id recommend ordering the nachos and taste of New Orleans and splitting them. For me,…nice tvs at the bar to watch March Madness but not a sports bar. Jazz played softly on tape. Its a nice open place, not loud. We loved it here. Excellent food and service.More

I had the roast beef po'boy and a lemonberry strawade. The sandwich was delicious but the bread was very chewey which made it impossible to eat without cutting it up, which was difficult with a dull knife. An employee snatched my napkin/silverware off my table...to give to another table, and I had to get up and go find a replacement. It also took a long time to get the check. There's certainly a level of customer service that's lacking, which is a shame because the food was really good.More

We had a bad experience this evening at this restaurant. We went there at 8:30pm and the server gave us a lecture about our small well behaved service dog. In 30 minutes, they let us know as we are eating dinner that they need to...close at 9pm and we need to pay our bill. It's a rushed awful experience and we could not even finish our dinner and was told to wrap up. We are unsure if we will revisit here againMore

This was the first place we stopped in New Orleans, female server was fantastic, really friendly and helpful; but the male bartender with long hair has an awful attitude - really rude and as though we’d ruined his day by even considering buying a drink...in a bar. Shame as we would’ve stayed here for a few more but it put us off. Imagine on other nights this is a lively place, as it’s in a great location with a good menu.More

Not my favorite place to eat in the French Quarter but that may have been my fault. I ordered the fried shrimp dinner which wasn't bad. It was dry however. There were plenty of deep fried shrimp piled on a bed of french fries with...a side of tarter and cocktail sauce. Like I said, wasn't bad, just dry. I would certainly try this place again and choose something else from the menu.More

Nice place, but the service we received wasn't so good. Our server didn't care too much and the restaurant was really cold with the windows opened. The food was good but nothing special. Cuisine not properly local, mixed and a bit expensive for what we...get.More

This is just your average restaurant inside a bar. I went here with friends as they both raved about the Blackened Chicken Alfredo, which we all three ordered. It was a very tasty dish which included parmesan cream sauce, penne pasta and the blackened chicken...breast. I really liked the fact that the parmesan cream sauce was not a heavy alfredo sauce. It had just enough sauce (very light) so that it did not overwhelm the entire dish. Although the food and service were good, I cannot recommend the alcoholic drinks that were made that night. The waitress asked it we wanted "doubles" when she took our order and we all agreed. When the drinks came, all three of us said we could hardly taste the alcohol. One friend said since they put the "double" in a tall glass that may have diluted the alcohol content. However, I had a martini in a regular martini glass so there is no reason why my drink was this weak. I asked the waitress specifically if these drinks were doubles and she said yes. Although we enjoyed the meal, we did not order anything further as we all three felt short-changed.More

Ordered a seafood platter but everything was breaded and deep-fried. Huge portions. Fish had no taste what so ever.

Sorry that you were mislead about the seafood platter. They are generally fried though. I hope to have you back to try one of our other delicious menu options that may better suite you.

We went here based on a recommendation from a local. We thought it was going to be more of a restaurant type place rather than a bar. But whatever we had a nice meal. The location is on the corner on the junction of Charters...and Toulouse, so it is in the heart of the French quarter and they keep all the doors/Windows open around the sides of the bar, so the atmosphere is busy and full of sound. The staff were friendly and efficient. They serve the typical meals for New Orleans, the red beans were particularly good. I went for the seafood platter and it was too much for me, good but in a large quantity. They had the best range of draft beers we had seen in our four nights out in town. All in all a very good place in the centre of town.More

Walked past this place after our late night ghost tour & were glad they were open until 1 while most places in the area closed at midnight. They sat 7 of us right away & service was great. The gumbo was delicious, but a pretty...small cup for $7 & gator bites & fries were pretty tasty as well.More

Stopped there before taking a great Lewd Spirits tour down the street. Great drinks, an amazing infused vodka for Bloody Marys and a clean restroom that was easily accessible (not a joke, that's a thing in the French Quarter). A little haunted history thrown in,...it is a great stop to relax a bit.More
