    Get the BBQ Shrimp, life changing! The assorted oyster and shrimp appetizer is also a good start.

    Best seafood I had in NOLA! Charbroiled oysters, alligator, blackened red fish and pecan pie with Tabasco pecans were all delicious. Everything has great flavor and the waitstaff was very friendly.

    The bourbon milk punch was amazing! Like dessert,but with a smooth kick to the end of a sip. So good. And the service was excellent.

    Oysters kind of the best, the sea food in general is pretty commercial. Don't expect any high end quality here an you will be ok

    Great oysters, but horrible pork sandwich!! 1/8" thick pounded out pork that's really dried out!! Horrible for the price.

    Frozen bourbon milk punch was legit, but service wasn't up to par. Gumbo was bleh, but the seafood gratin was good and the fried shrimp was pretty darn good.

    Stephanie Lewis · May 25, 2014

    Good food, right on Bourbon Street. A bit noisy for my taste, but worth a visti

    Steve Wellmann · May 17, 2014
  • Troy T.

    A bit underwhelmed, but ordered pretty common meals--fried oyster and catfish. Tasted very fresh, but most are in NOLA. Service a bit confusing (3 diff waiters), but overall really good.

    Oysters from Area 13 Grand Isle!! Delish with a little natural salt flavor from the ocean!

    This has always been one of my favorite places but recent lunch service at the bar was probably the worst I've ever had in New Orleans. So disappointed!

    Great gluten free shrimp creole! Would come back again.

    Crappy service, mediocre food. Make sure to return your whiskey glass to the front for a $5 refund (no one tells you that the glass is either yours to keep or is refundable).

    For the price I'd rather go to Borgne or Dominica

    Great bourbon selection, great oysters Rockafeller, good food. make sure and get a glencairn with your bourbon, they have their logo on there and it's only 45, which is $2 less than retail.
