This wonderful gem sits on the high side of the waterfront and features an outdoor patio, great New Orleans style menu and decor and on lucky nites a live band. The putine is amazing and enough to hold you down for their wonderful cocktail libations....More

Nothing to write home about. Service was lacking even though DJ had a nice personality. Food was OK, nothing special. So close to the river but not much of a view. Overall a nice venue but nothing to get excited about.

Have had numerous meals at BrewRiver, and have always been satisfied. Service can be slow when they are busy, which is true of most places this popular. The food is hardy and satisfying, especially the mac and cheese. The patio is a pleasant dining environment...More

Sat outside but got there early. Very busy even at 5pm. Everyone got something different and it was all very large and tasty. They were understaffed so it took awhile for us to get our food.

We had a family dinner. I had the Muffaletto and was just right. The rest of the family had a burger, Portobello mushroom and shrimp po boy. The waffle fries are an acquired taste and are crunchy. Ample parking is across the street.

Really good food in a laid back restaurant. It's kind of in the middle of nowhere but worth finding. Great beer selection, full bar, and a simple menu reminiscent of a decent New Orleans pub. Try the poutine or the truffle fries or the burgers...More

We had reservations and were seated at 7. The server stopped by and said I'll be right back. I did not have a beverage until 738. Yes I was timing it. We ordered truffle fries for an appetizer and they came out cold and were...More
