The best char-broiled oysters in NOLA and a unique atmosphere. It's rustic inside, but in an interesting and clever way. Our server was incredible and the dishes we had included shrimp and grits, beans and rice with andouille sausage, and shrimp etouffee. Every dish was...great, but the char-broiled oysters were so buttery and smoky that they get the number one spot.More

The duck was outstanding! Perfectly cooked, great flavor, sides were delicious, and paired perfectly with Hurricane 3. He had Taste of New Orleans, also great and let him sample jambalaya, crawfish etouffee, shrimp creole, and red beans and rice. Went well with is Hurricane 4...which has the spiced rum. Blair took great care of us. So friendly and attentive. Thanks!More

Ate dinner here on March 30th. It is one of our must go to each visit. They never disappoint. Hubby loves the Shrimp Creole. I had the Pecan crusted Redfish this time and it was wonderful. Then came the Bannana Foster bread pudding...the pudding had...bananas in it, then deep fried. Served with a dust of powdered sugar, carmel sauce and the smoothest vanilla bean ice cream. We shared it and still left some behind. The service was great. Everything was timely, hot and visually appealing. Jackie, our server, was professional, engaging and had perfect suggestions on what she thought we might enjoy. We highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.More

We had a table on a lovely patio in the courtyard area. Fountain and live music. Service was very slow, but maybe that's just the times we are in. Etoufee was served barely warm with only about a dozen crawfish pieces and lots of rice....Spicier than described. The fried oysters were hot and good. Nice but not great experience.More

The man outside encouraging people to enter was great. We joked with him and after changing at the hotel we went right back. I asked if if we’re still allowed to eat there and he pulled me inside. We ate in the courtyard and really...liked the atmosphere. My shrimp and grits were delicious. My wife loved her red beans and rice. So many places to eat in NOLA but this was very solid.More

We sat outside in their beer garden area today and had a delicious lunch. We ate with our teenage kids and everyone loved their meals. This was just what we were looking for - a quiet place to have lunch outside before continuing our exploration...of the French Quarter. The service was great and we definitely recommend!More

I saw the old reviews about bad service and still gave this place a shot. We arrived a few minutes past our reservation time and they still sat us (thank you!) However, we were sitting inside for a good 15 minutes without anyone coming to...us. I alerted the host stand and a very nice gentleman overheard and immediately took our table and he was great! I wish I could remember his name. He was so tentative and made our experience better! To start we had raw and chargrilled oysters. Ok the size of the oysters! Big, fat oysters- these were some of the biggest ones I’ve ever had! I’d say great quality! The chargrilled oysters were so good! Not over powered with all the toppings, it was just enough and really some of the best ones I’ve had yet. Entree: The pecan crusted redfish. I was disappointed. I did like the crunch of it but It was dried out and it needed more sauce. Maybe a cream sauce would have been better with it. My sister and stepmom got steaks and they enjoyed them. My niece got the Ponchartrain (fried fish with hollandaise) and this was tasty. Our server was also able to get my kiddo some grilled/sautéed shrimp as a kids meal And those were really good! The satsuma margarita was very good too!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
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

The creole cookery was an amazing place. Everyone was so friendly and service was great. They do have a large room there that could probably seat 50, you might need to call soon to make a reservation. The Natchez dinner... More
