Description
Welcome to Hobnobber's Variety Bar & Restaurant. We cure huge appetites in New Orleans, LA with our homestyle flavors and portions. Our bar is open 7 days a week from 10am-3am. The restaurant is open Monday-Saturday from 6am-2pm. Some of the favorites include the Po'Boy Special (choice of shrimp, oysters, or catfish) with gumbo and steaming French bread, massive breakfast plates, fresh coffee, shrimp and crab casserole, crab claws/legs, buttery grits, bloody mary, delectable hash brown special, hot biscuits, and peach cobbler. Our bar has exactly what you need for prices that leave more cash in your wallet! Our crowd is split between locals and tourists. People stroll through our long hallway because the food is cooked how it should be in NOLA, you won't leave hungry, and they usually can't resist the appetizing food aromas from our homestyle cooking. Dine in with us and throw on your favorite tune in our jukebox, watch some TV, play pool, or internet poker! We provide take-out, off-site catering, and free bicycle delivery! So come on down to Hobnobber's where the food is fresh, drinks are cheap, and faces are always smilin'!
