I came with several people to watch the LSU Football game. I had a good time. The hamburger was a great size and was good. The bartenders were quick with my drinks. The TV's were all set to the game and they had sound throughout the bar of the game. I will be back and watch my favorite teams play... More

There are 2 "go-to burger joints" I have here in NOLA: Yo Mama's in the Quarter and here. Burgers are some of the best I've had and I always order the steak fries with cheese & jalapeños (note: the orders of fries are huge, 1 order will feed 2-3 ppl) Great atmosphere, plenty of space, good drink prices. If you... More

I've eaten here quite a few times and the food is equally good every time. They have incredible burgers and the chili cheese fries and onion rings are delicious. The atmosphere is more like a hole in the wall with booths, places to sit at the bar, video games and pool tables. But extremely good food and stiff drinks

I prefer quality over quantity when it comes to food but we were all three very happy with the quality of the burger and its size. It was actually TOO big. The bar is simple a great place to enjoy a few drinks with your buddies. We will keep coming back to this hole in the wall neighborhood bar.

This place was recommended by friends. Dark, they've got tinting on the glass, it's a shock when someone opens the door. Good bartenders though, but they'll serve you iced tea if that's what you want. The Swampburger is what drew me here, $7.75 for a 10 oz burger with cheese and toppings. A big side order of onion rings was... More

The swamp room serves great food in a wonderful environment that reminds patrons of how things were before we all got crazy. Fast service, good selection of casual and bar specialty foods and a good loud and appreciative party minded crowd. Go early and nurse your hangover or late and get started on one.
