Great gourmet NOLA cuisine is attached to this amazing WWII museum. And the Screen Door canteen has entertainment as well. The music is great from the 40's and 50's! They also have Gluten Free options which is hard to find in New Orleans.

Moderately priced but convenient while visiting the WWII museum, we enjoyed our lunch. Presentation and taste was good. I had the orzo which was so good and my friends had Po-boys and hamburger. Everyone enjoyed their choice. I would go again.

Friendly and helpful service, good food and atmosphere. A movie of USO shows was constantly running over the bar. An unusually classy museum restaurant!

I just ate here due the convenience of being attached in the Second War Museum. I asked a chicken fried and came a beef. My cranberry juice was terrible! If you want good food, try another place. Not recommended.

For a quick meal the pot roast on toast with mashed potatos and gravy was very good. Quick service for a dine and dash scenario. Pleasant suprise!

I've eaten at this restaurant a few times when in the WWII Museum. There are several options to choose from and fresh ice cream and other treats.

I was skeptical because it was a restaurant inside the WWll museum, I was wrong! It was hard to get a table but we went to the bar and found two seats. My oyster with pork belly was out of this world, my husband's lamb chop was huge even if it was appetizer size, very good. Our bloody Mary's were... More

We were going to the WWII museum and the weather was very cold and rainy. Since we were coming from somewhere else, we took the cab straight to the museum and opted to eat in the restaurant. The food was good. The service was good. We cannot say anything bad about it, but we would not have chosen to eat... More

We were able to be seated immediately since it was a little after the lunch crowd. Service was very friendly. My wife had Meatloaf & I had a Shrimp PoBoy. Both were excellent. The fries were nice and hot & crispy. Good way to sit down for a while to break up a 6 hour visit to the Museum.

Stopped in here since I was at the WWII Museum and didn't want to leave. Sat at the bar and they're friendly and helpful with the menu. I decided to have an appetizer... the crawfish boil fritters... Simply EXCELLENT. So many I didn't have to order lunch!

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
