We were committed to getting recommendations from locals in where to eat and Steve, the parking lot attendant recommended this place. We made our way through the rain and wind of Cindy the tropical depression to get here. It's a neat little place, loved the...More

Big portion size and great tasting food. I had the shrimp poboy and Cajun fries. Service was great, about a 15 min wait, which is usual.

This place has great tasting food, but the location is cramped and the portions are relatively small.

We enjoyed the food here. Crabmeat cakes and gumbo were very good. Grilled redfish decent bit pricey for the portion. Nice bread pudding. Lots of other choices so we would return for another try.

Nice atmosphere for a traditional NOLA dinner. I had the Best of New Orleans. It was good. I like mine a little spicier. A little hot sauce and I was good. Bread pudding was excellent.

We sat on the narrow, precarious balcony, with a view of things going on in the street! It was entertainment! The gator bites were great, as was the beans and rice and the gumbo. Definitely recommend!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Hi. I haven't been to your restaraunt since Katrina. But I remember it well. I never had a trip to NO without stopping by for your BBQ shrimp. As you can see I'm totally additcted to this item. We are coming down in March and I popped online to see if it is still on your menu. Sadly I didn't see it. Can you tell me if you are still offering that dish? I will certainly be there if so! Thank you.
