One word: delicious. I've visited the Destin, FL location before and fell in love with it. When I was in NOLA, I had to go. I was on a short three day vacation here, and it's so good I went twice! One day we had...More

My first lunch in New Orleans was delicious! I found this place on Trip Advisor and couldn't pass up their chargrilled oysters. Wow such a treat and wish I would've ordered double! I also tried the soft-shelled crab po-boy which was also delicious. Don't mind...More

Stopped for lunch to get the raw oysters and po'boys. Had a short wait in line outside the building, but service was fast and friendly. Abita beer available, along with full bar.

The food was good but the line to get in was down the street. The service was very good other than the drinks where slow to come from the bar. It was also a bit more expensive than I thought it should by.

My daughter's crawfish were great, my other daughter and I ordered crab cakes and they were deep fried. My husband thought his dinner was just ok. There was a line to get in, service was ok.

Four of us ate here, each having a different meal. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the excellent service. They pack them in tight so be prepared to bob and weave to get seated.

This is a signature place to eat in NOLA. And the servers know that and are rude. We ordered 4 meals including the grilled Oysters and nothing was that good. Much better at Dregos. Expensive here and not that good. Skip the line.

Tried the Seafood Etouffee with crawfish for the first time. I thought it was extremely good and would certainly recommend it. Also had the red beans and rice as a side and it also was very good. If you do not want to wait in...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

I don't think they take reservations. You would have to call and ask. Sorry.

Yes, you can bring children. I honestly didn't see a children's menu. However, the restaurant was clean, the wait staff friendly, and accommodating. When my daughter was small , we often shared a plate when a child's plate... More
