Our dinner experience here was great. Our waiter, Len, was great! We had a 2 year old with us and Len brought balloons and was very patient with all of our orders! Pork chop is great! Tuna was excellent. A great all around experience.

Great lunch spot. Their gumbo ya-ya is fantastic. Super dark roux and very rich. Had the special (muffaletta) and it was great.

This was one of the first places our Uber driver suggested. We had a variety of items around the table and it was all very good. They have a full bar and decent wine selection. The desserts were good too.

Went to Mr. B’s on a recommendation from our hotels concierge. Service was slow and disinterested. Did the bare minimum to serve us. No recommendations, no specials. Just are you ready? Food was good but not great and not worth the price that we paid....More

Had been a favorite, a place for celebrations. Bar is still good, but menu, food quality and servers are now just average. Too much better food and service nearby to recommend again.

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

Not sure if they have a private area. When you come in the front door they have a bar on the right side with a dining area. They also have a larger dining area on the left side as you walk in. We dined on the left side and... More
