The lunch specials are really reasonable and plenty of food. We got the citrus chicken wrap and the citrus salad and they were excellent.

We babysit my nephews that live very close to Olive Branch on Gen DeGaulle. So we frequent this establishment many times. The pizzas and calzones are delish. I love the citrus chicken wrap or salad. I have enjoyed the chicken and bacon ranch wrap as well. And the shrimp and corn bisque is totally worth a visit!! The food tastes... More

My husband and I got seafood pasta dishes and garlic bread. They were excellent. The atmosphere was a little noisy and the tables are close together. But the food makes up for it.

Olive Branch continues to offer wonderful food. This time it was a quick pick-up for dinner. The shrimp carnival was wonderfully hot, full of shrimp, sausage, onions, peppers all in the BEST sauce that adds a little flavor kick. It is then served over penne pasta (whole wheat pasta is available) and the remain sauce can be 'cleaned up' with... More

Just drove past and saw the sign so I decided to stop in. Not many there, so I was kind of wary. However, I was impressed by the food I got. Had the Becky's pasta. Very good. Add the garlic bread, which is actually a small cheese pizza

We went here on recommendation from our hotel staff and it was great. Quality food and down home service. They don't serve alcohol but let us bring our own bottle of wine in to have with dinner. Would recommend the lasagna for red sauce fans and Pasta Jambalaya for chicken and white sauce fans. Would recommend to anyone who wants... More

Staying in Algiers

Neighbourhood Profile
Algiers
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
