Have tried various combinations. Love the deafood gumbo and any sandwich goes with the gumbo. I prefer the shrimp or oyster or roast beef sandwiches the best If you prefer salads their seafood salad is surprisingly better than one would expect

WOW, the food was awesome just as the service. I highly recommend the sea food platter. The iberville location was like impossible to get to due to the annual bayou classic weekend traffic, so we decided to make that drive.

I had the seafood gumbo and a soft shell po-boy. The gumbo was thinner than I remember from numerous visits to the restaurant in the french quarter. The crab po-boy seemed to have too strong a flavor. The red potatoes served gratis were very good...More

Deanie's Seafood is loved by locals as one of the "Best Seafood Restaurants in New Orleans" (Gambit Weekly, Times Picayune), "Best Place for Crawfish" and the favorite place for fresh Louisiana seafood prepared in our signature Creole seasonings. For over 50 years Deanie's has been serving huge portions of the best boiled, broiled and fried seafood. Its two restaurants in Bucktown and the French Quarter earned a Zagat food and service rating of "very good to excellent," and its French Quarter private dining spaces are perfect for special events, rehearsal dinner and weddings.
