    Old school New Orleans food. There's probably 3 ounces of whiskey on the bread pudding.

    Wonderful, authentic New Orleans restaurant. Amazing service, food and decor. Try the shrimp jambalaya and the speciality Red Fish Bon Ton.

    Crabmeat Au Gratin was pricey but excellent! Buttered Potatoes were O.K. Bread Pudding with rum sauce and butter pecan ice cream was delectable! If I was Catholic, I would be heading to confession.

    Old school restaurant. Old school decor and service. Go for dinner. Lunch is for people that work not tourists.

    Cajun classics done right. If you need an introduction to cajun cuisine, this is as good a place to start as any. Étouffée, jambalaya, gumbo, the list goes on and on. Great fried catfish too.

    The best meal I had in NOLA. Order anything and everything: the shrimp, crab and okra gumbo, crab au gratin, crawfish étouffée and DEFINITELY the bread pudding a la mode are all winners.

    The bread pudding may be the best in town. Watch out for that whiskey sauce. It's strong!

    Cajun: Bon Ton is an awesome throwback to another generation's restaurant. It's all about the tradition. They won't share the recipe with the diner. They do great dishes the old way.

    An old school creole/Cajun restaurant—checkered tablecloths, etc. Been around for 110 years because it's just that good. - Chef John Besh (crab bisque, crawfish bisque, crabmeat au gratin)

    Treat yourself to the crab meat au gratin. You'll think you might as well die and go to Heaven afterwards. It should be on anyone's bucket list. Also the only place you can get a Rum Ramsey.

    The crabmeat au gratin is out of this world! Catfish tid bits are stellar too - very lightly battered.

    The bread pudding is excellent. Split an order between 2 or 3 people. The whiskey sauce is very strong... get it on the side or substitute the caramel sauce.
