“Something for everyone”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

I loved Pat O'Briens! We got in just before the dueling pianos began so we got great seats and boy did that place fill up quickly! I would try to get their between 2 and 2:45 to get a good seat. The atmosphere was great and we had a lot of fun in our afternoon adventure. There were bathrooms all over so no lines and they even had attendants in the afternoon. The hurricanes were passed along and when we finished we returned the glasses to the bar for a $3 refund, making the drinks $5. Excellent price! What I loved most is that we stayed for about 3 hours because there were different scenes. You had the dueling pianos, the hotel bar scene (without the hotel) , and an outdoor patio area. We were able to get a nice environment to fit all of our personalities. They also had souvenir shirts and glasses for sale.

“Go for a Hurricane and that's it!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We stopped for a cocktail and then decided to stay for dinner. The drinks are infamous and yummy. I ordered the Shrimp Remoulade and my husband had a burger. His burger was decent but my shrimp was awful. The sauce, which should have been creamy, was lumpy and almost looked curdled. The bathrooms were filthy. With all of the great dining options, I would highly recommend choosing another restaurant.

“Great food and drinks!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Went here for lunch - had fried shrimp (Amazing!) and the shrimp gumbo which was good (not a lot of food though) we also had all of their drinks which were fantastic but after that I stuck with the Hurricane. The lady bartender there was awesome to talk to for NOLA tourist advice.

“Too Much Fun!!!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We went to Pat O's on Friday night and rocked in the Dueling Piano Bar. Being from Texas, of course, we had to request 'The Eyes of Texas!' It was played not once but twice!! and the UT students we had the pleasure of being near to our table and us had the best time dancing and partying! The obligatory, lol, hurricanes were soooo good!! We each had two! Thank you Pat O's, we had a smashing good time!

“Great Place”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Go here if you're a little older and want to have a good time without a 21 year old giving you a hard time. Of course the Hurricanes are mandatory in the courtyard setting
