    Kinda exspensive for a NOLA sports bar. Seen the Creatinous kitchen staff assault people for no reason. Not much to miss here.

  • James P.

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

    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

  • Kat R.

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

  • Geoffrey G.

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

    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!

    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.

    10.75 or a mix with frambois aand hoogarden

    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.
