The food was very good. I got the chicken & waffles and my wife got the blackened chicken pasta. We both enjoyed our meals. The building is old and historic. We will eat here again.

Some of the best food that we ate during our whole trip! Recommendations from our waitress were, the pistolettes, and my favorite, the Seafood Pot Pie! So awesome! And not at all "fishy".

Stopped in for lunch with my dad on the recommendation of our hotel's concierge. Extremely pleased with the quality of the food and service. The étouffée was phenomenal; it was perfectly spicy, paired with just the right amount of white rice. Dad had the Crescent...More

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
