Ate here on a Sunday night. It's a very large restaurant, and the ambiance (wood interior, etc.) is great. Even though it's a big place, reservations are needed to avoid a long wait. The food itself was just average. The highlight was definitely the BBQ...More

Great place for a pre-Thanksgiving week lunch. On the corner of Royal and Iberville Streets, MrB’s is a cozy, wood paneled, soft lighting kind of place with a strolling trio consisting of bass, banjo and clarinet that provide just enough jazz to complement your meal....More

Had such a great time having my dinner at the bar alone that I came back next day with friends. Bartenders are great food is better and everyone enjoyed ourselves. Do try this Brennan Family establishment! Great steaks, fun and delicious appetizers and generous cocktails!

We saved Mr. B's for our last night in New Orleans, as we'd visited previously and had a fantastic time. Our food was great, but the service was seriously lacking this time. We came to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, and we did get some balloons,...More

Stopped to get out of the cold rain. We were looking for a light lunch and the Autumn bisque and gumbo were just what the Dr ordered. Also, a couple of cranberry margaritas helped a lot too. Very good food, service, and bartender Dean was...More
