Stopped in for a quick bite during a conference lunch break, found my muffaletta to be a little boring. Olive dressing could've been a little more vinegary and lacked the 'twang' i'm normally looking for. Bread was a little dry, but the meats and cheeses...More

Raining, windy not many people out in the Riverwalk area; pleasant place to have a cocktail. Atrium area very quaint, but rained out. Just good Pub food. Pleasant place to "recharge" in a central location.

If you are thinking of Pat O'brien's for a night out this is the place! Piano bar with funny and live music. Great drinks! Watch out the staff is a little touchy when it comes to ID's so make sure you take proof of age!

First time at this restaurant, really friendly staff. Bartenders were very knowledgeable making drinks as well explaining us the house specialty drinks. Food like gumbo, jambalaya and shrimp creole were better than expected. Server was attentive and gave us an excellent service.

Entrance and Piano Room are pretty dark and dank. I really enjoyed the Pat O's Rainstorm...great drink!

Even though it does not have a view of the Riverwalk, it was worth it because the food was that good. Shrimp cooked to perfection. Drinks nice and strong. Absolutely no complaints! Check for a Groupon!
