Stopped in on pre-cruise saturday afternoon. Nice little bar with a back patio. Not a lot of room in the bar area but a lot of stools. Very laid back atmosphere at that time of day. Only one bartender and a cook/bar back. Bartender was a little slow getting to you and didn't seem to be very personable, but he... More

Decent sized bar (about 20 stools) along with tables across from Preservation Hall and Pat Obrien's. Has all the elements to be a fun place, but too much attitude and lackadaisical behavior behind the bar. We went across the street to get to go beers for the Preservation Hall set. Took bartender near 5 minutes to acknowledge us when she... More

The drinks were great and the noise level good for conversation. We also had the onion rings (very crispy) and the chips and salsa (salsa was surprisingly good. I'm from Texas you know) Highly recommend.

Can't beat the deal of two for one. They were good, but I understand Pat O'briens makes the best and Lafitte's blacksmith shop makes then with real juice so no sugar hangover.

We arrived in NO late ad this was one of the last places open for a meal, but being that the food was below average and everyone was in a hurry to close anyway, I should have saved the $100 I dropped there ate from a vending machine and waited till morning...

Since this bar is on St-Peter and not Bourbon Street, it<s much less crowded than Bourbon Street. The food is great but the service of the staff (Hayley and Riley) is absolutely top notch. Next time im in New Orleans, this will be my first stop.

Finnegan's Easy is right next to the Haunted History tour starting point. It's a great bar to go into and get a Hurricane or two, before starting your tour! Good prices and the drinks are strong!

Great Hurricanes and friendly bartenders. As this bar isn't on Bourbon St, it wasn't as crazy full as other places we stopped but that was just fine by us. Jukebox and TVs provided entertainment the day we were there. We didn't try the food.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
