This is a great restaurant in a FANTASTIC museum. The shrimp po boy is as good as what you can get in the French Quarter.

Amazing food. Very underrated and not very full of patrons. Very well kept secret in Nola. We tried 6 items and they were all outstanding. Do not miss the oyster blt app. Great beer list as well.

Service was slow, never had a waiter come back to refill my tea. The place is clean with nice outdoor dining. The food was delicious! Nice place!

The museum's restaurant offers much better than the average museum fare. There are WWII vintage choices. For a light lunch, we opted for excellent oyster salads. Had them again the next day.

We were here for lunch while visiting the museum. We were disappointed in the menu prices. We tried the Hot Pot Roast plate. $14. It was so salty it couldn't be eaten. We did tell our waitress, she more or less said too bad write your comment on your check. We also tried the cheese burger also $14. It was... More

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.

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.
