While my girlfriend and I were down in New Orleans, we decided to eat lunch here since we wanted to watch pro football and they had the NFL Sunday ticket. The only good thing I can say about this place is that they had a lot of TVs and every game on at least one them. You could watch whatever game interested you and you could watch 3 to 4 games at once from just about any seat in the restaurant.
The waitress that we had was horrible. She was infrequent in visiting our table even though we mentioned that we would be ordering food throughout the afternoon while watching the games. When we were able to order, it took a considerably long time for us to receive the food. The order was incorrect on 2 of the orders that we placed.
The food was average at best. We ordered the sliders and the meat for the 4 sliders was one hamburger that was cut into fourths. One slider only had a burger on it that was the diameter of a quarter! The chicken tenders were dry and overcooked. The queso dip had a film over the top of it.
When we finally were ready to leave, we received the bill and it already included a 17% gratuity even though we had all of these problems with the service and orders.
I am not going to go to this place ever again and I would advise anybody else to do the same.

This restaurant is attached to the Wyndham French Quarter & hopefully it will be renovated as well when they do the hotel. Our waiter had a hard time multi-tasking which made the service very slow. Breakfast was fair but one day I went in the restaurant to use their restroom & the dining area smelled of sewage yet the bathroom smelled fine. Odd & unappetizing!

Bathrooms need to be gutted and re done! Cheesy at best. Unattentive staff, cold beer at a decent price. Spend your money elsewhere.

We had breakfast at this restaurant for one morning. The staff was friendly. I had the double waffle and it was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant for you. I was told by others they had had drinks in this restaurant and stated they were reasonably priced as well. Enjoy.
