“Great place for a drink/oysters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

For a bourbon lover like myself, this place is a must when visiting New Orleans. Home of the local bourbon guild and 100's to choose from was one of the highlights to my recent visit. They also have an nice menu with good oysters (a bit pricey for the quality though). Definitely a place to come for a good glass of bourbon while in town though

“A terrific restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

There's so much hub-bub around the restaurant that I didn't expect it to be all that great, but a good friend recommended it so we tried it. I'm so glad we did. We started out with a trio of oysters... each prepared differently and delicious. We then shared a salad that was so fresh and good. For an entree, I had drum fish that was grilled; my husband had catfish with an amazing light sauce on it. Everything was absolutely delicious and for all the noise outside their door, the restaurant was quiet and the service was perfect.

“Oysters and ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Certainly lots of "oyster houses" in New Orleans, and most serve great food. None, however, are as capable as Bourbon House of delivering something special. Smoked, fried oysters were amazing, service is top notch, and the restaurant is beautiful.

“Oyster Happy Hour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Stopped here three times. It is right next to the oyster house where the line was down the street but we were able to get a seat at the oyster bar. The guys behind the bar great shucking oysters and very accommodating on the size of the oysters and your preference.(with a nice tip of course) We did not eat dinner but we I did have a gator po boy and we managed to eat 5 dozen oysters that were delicious.
