    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

    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.

    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 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!

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

    The best place to watch the Champions League in town. Also, the food improved a lot with the menu revamp!

    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.

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

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