    The only place that has a buffalo sauce I like. Wings are spicy and awesome.

    Head to Cooter Brown's to watch the game! Stocked with TVs and a feasting menu of po-boys, burgers and fried goodness--not to mention plenty of beer--you can't go wrong.

    The cheese fries are sinfully delicious, but only if you eat them right away.

    Hate the name, hate the frat clientele, but love the poboys. Try the fried shrimp poboy, with cheese fries on the side.

    This place is great and has the NHL Center Ice package. One of the few places we were able to find in New Orleans to watch NHL games. Beer selection is awesome and food is good too.

    They have great raw oysters for a excellent price.

    Both the Looter's Philly and the fried oyster po'boy are exemplary.

    Kat Robinson · September 30, 2014

    No gravy fries on the menu, but just ask and they'll pour gravy on your fries for you. Grab a fork.

    Meat pies, raw oysters, and shrimp poboy: Saints Football Trinity. One of the best sports bars on the planet.

    My preferred muffaletta

  • James P.

    Being 2000 miles away from Chicago, the Chicago dog is surprisingly inauthentic. Still a good place

    Here for the pool tables and nearby big screens...

  • Manny F.

    Might be my favorite place to watch games. Plenty of tvs including a wall-sized one. Oyster bar and lots of beer variety. For regular bar food I recommend the bayou po-boy

    The bartender was sweet as pie! I had the snakebite (cider & lager) and it was delicious. Got a grilled chicken caesar and it was tasty as well. So glad I went with my gut and stopped by!

    Tasha Burton · July 12, 2014
  • Larry L.

    If you get the surly female bartender who won't ask you what you want and just stares at you with a stupid look on her face, don't bother to leave her a tip.

    Larry Lovell · May 25, 2014
  • Jeff W.

    10.75 or a mix with frambois aand hoogarden

    Jeff Wilson · April 8, 2014

    1 pond of crawfish plate and 1 dozen of raw oysters did the trick!

    Order beer at the bar, oysters at the side bar towards the main room, and food just to the right as you walk in the front room. Like 3 different places to order/pay.

    40 craft beers and po-boys

    The most optimistic, uplifting (women's) bathroom graffiti. And meat pies.
