“A great place to chill w/ friends.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

During my visit to NOLA my girlfriend took me here because I'm a beer drinker and Cooter's has an excellent beer selection. The tap selection was pretty good but the bottled selection was excellent.

We did not eat here but I'm told the food and the oyster bar are great.

The decor of wooden carvings of famous people w/ a beer in hand was interesting and cool.

I'm from Denver where smoking isn't legal in bars. I was concerned I would feel suffocated by a smokey atmosphere. Completely the opposite.

“Taking a college bar to whole new level”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

A college sports bar with a huge beer selection, fresh raw oysters, and the best sandwich grill in the city!!
Though the price of oysters has gone up in the last years - a dozen for $14 is still darn good - and they are about the juiciest in the city and they do much better holding on to the juice than most shuckers in the city. It also has one of the best sandwich shops I've ever been to - a mix of PoBoys and northeast deli with some fun fusions.
Lot o TVs to watch the games and lots of Tulane and Loyola students.

“Wonderful Beer selection”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Full of TVs, digital jukebox, and a huge beer selection (bottle and draft); not to mention the food, delicious!!! Stopped in per recommendations from a friend and the place did not disappoint. Great place to hang out and have some beers, eat some good bar food, and watch a game.
