“Very good Po-boy.”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

A hole in the wall find. Great oyster poboy. Much better than many of the more famous joints like Cassamento or Verti-mart, just order to go, $11, dressed with hot sauce and enjoy.

“Best food we had on a road trip”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

We have 6 people on a road trip and this is the best food we had on the way. We found the restaurant on google map. It’s close to French Quarter. There are plenty of free street parking outside. Most seafood and potato, corn are boiled with a little bit spicy taste. We just love it. Since it’s the end of 2011, someone in our group even rated it as the best food she had in the whole year. It’s a kind of carry-out restaurant and we occupied the only two tables. We almost tried everything on their “boiled” menu and we love the taste of every food we ordered. Owner is very friendly and considerate. We also ordered something to go and she packed the food very carefully and gave us a roll of paper towel to use when serving the food.

“DELICIOUS”
Reviewed April 28, 2009

I've travelled around the world more than once and this is my favorite restuarant bar none. It is not a nice looking place but the food is fantastic. Due to the location, I only recommend making the trip if you like crawfish or turkey necks. If you do, you absolutely must eats there. There have been a number of times that I have sat at my computer (in Seattle) debating whether or not I should buy a plane ticket to New Orleans for the weekend just so I can stuff myself at Broadview Seafood.

“Delicious Fresh Local Grub”
Reviewed May 2, 2008

In a city where even the most basic meals are of the highest quality, this little gem stands out. Unfortunately, it is off the beaten tourist trail and it's scope of selections is limited, but of very high quality.

We found it after hearing it recommended by several locals on our treks out to the New Orleans Racetrack for Jazz Fest, we decided to head over for a look. It is not that close to the French Qurter and we had to take a ten dollar taxi both ways.

It specilizes in fresh seafood and other delicacies like stewed turkey necks and pig's feet. We snagged a shrimp po boy ($7.99) that was top shelf and a pound of crawfish ($2.49). Both were very fresh and done to perfection.

It is a no frills place with service to match. The clientele was constant and the efficiency of the staff matched the traffic with ease.

It is a worthy greasy spoon in a city filled with them if you are in that part of town.
