“Excellent dinner by the river!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

My mom and I were looking for a first night dinner in New Orleans, and we saw good reviews for Poppy's. We were not disappointed! I had the crab cake plate, delicious! The cakes were meaty and the sauce they serve with them is just the right amout of kick. My mom ate the jambalaya and was very happy with it, much better than we have in Missouri! Meagan was our server and she had knowledge of the menu and kept us happy as clams. There was a great breeze and live music on the patio, fantastic feel to it. We might be back before our trip is through!

“Great food, great service, what a fun spot!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We had the seafood bucket: 2lb lobster, snow crab, crawfish, shrimp, potatoes, corn! It was excellent! Great service, the live music was really good, would be a fun spot for a large group of people.

“Underwhelmed”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

I am a citizen of New Orleans so I'm used to eating out at many different restaurants. First thing I noticed were the price, the lobster was fair but 5 dollars for CRAB CAKE!!! When we ordered our drink, we got basic sodas, 3.00 for a drink and no FREE refills. Then the waiter comes back to tell us that they were out of crab cakes. The atmosphere was so-so. I think the portion sizes are awfully small for the prices they charge. Needless to say we paid for the drinks and left. This restaurant is truly a tourist spot, because only a tourist would be dumb enough to pay for they offer.

“Great Catfish and Music on the River”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

When you 1st walk through doors you might not be that impressed with the resin chairs and old tile floor. Its probably not the best place for a Germaphobe. Once you settle in and feel the breeze of the water and hear the music while enjoying a drink all of that goes away. My hubby and I had the fried pickles and split the catfish. Both were great. The catfish was very tender white meat. The service was really great. We both enjoyed the meal and relaxing atmosphere.
