“Old School charm”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

The dining room is like a trip back in time but in a good way. Be sure to make a reservation for dinner or you likely won't get a table. Hard to make a bad decision on the menu, provided you like fish or steak.

Very popular with locals and tourists alike, so try to arrive before 7pm. The fish is amazing with many selections.

Another not to be missed cafe, great food and music. Housed in a very old charming building make sure to get reservations early. By 6 oclock the place was full!

“Real New Orleans!”

Cozy and traditional creole and cajun cuisine with classic NOLA atmosphere on Magazine Street just off Poydras toward Canal St. Brick walls, nice ambiance. Professional down home courteous service. Excellent turtle soup and crawfish etoufee. Famous for their bread pudding. Very reasonably priced wine list withnice choices. We had a great lunch!

“Old school and over priced”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

If you are looking for a restaurant time warp -- this is the place for you. The food is average but the atmosphere and people watching (at least the lunch crowd) is interesting. The "waitresses" wear white uniforms circa 1965 and are super helpful and charming
