“Dinner at Deanie's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Had dinner at Deanie's last Friday. The place was very busy. Decor was nice as they were decorated for Xmas, but basically the place is a slightly upscale diner. Service was fair since they were so busy. The food was good but the BBQ shrimp were a real challenge to peel since they weren't split down the back.

“Fried Shrimp Dinner was excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Ate here tonight and the Fried Shrimp Dinner that I had was excellent. They serve you a ton of shrimp and it was just too much for me to finish. Had an awesome Hurricane here as well. Would definitely go back here.

“Don't Do Take Out at Deanie's”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

My friends liked Deanie's Seafood Restaurant and raved about it, so I went there to get a quick take out order of seafood gumbo before I left New Orleans. My "bowl" of gumbo looked more like a "cup" and with a small soft drink my order total was almost $15. Something is not right here. I don't recommend doing a take out order at Deanie's Seafood.

“Good shrimp, better company”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

What I loved most of this place was the atmosphere, as you can read in my blog: http://allhailthemantisshrimp.wordpress.com/2013/12/15/do-you-know-the-difference-between-the-in-laws-and-the-outlaws/

I ordered the famous BBQ shrimps and they were yummi, though I had problems peeling some of them (problems with the cooking?), but they were tasty nevertheless, and sitting alone at the bar I just kept meeting new people to chit chat. It was really great.
