    I'll add another tip...if you want an appetizer, and are the type that gets full fast, ask for the app size BBQ Shrimp (best thing on menu). Crab cakes are divine! Best service!

    The Mr. B's Orang Julius drink is amazing. Tastes like a creamsicle/dreamsicle. Very sweet, a sweet tooth is a must. Plus, make sure you get the bib for the barbecued shrimp.

    Best service in the city. Tasty food, affordable wine, and worth every penny. Scallops were perfectly cooked. Pork chop was stellar and can feed a giant!

    Definitely one of my all-time favorite meals.The scallops and fried oysters were fantastic. Order the seasonal entrees - the rabbit and grouper were so so good. And get all the desserts!!

    The wood grilled fish was amazing! Got them to do a jasmine rice with it instead of potatoes. The sauce was a a lemon butter sauce, green beans still had their crunch! Definitely coming back here 🐠

    Incredible! Service was immaculate, atmosphere very authentic NOLA. The table split: the trout pecan, lobster risotto, truffle butter filet mignon, lump crab cake, lemon ice box pie (best ever!)

    Best in town! This is the only place in NOLA that I have no concerns to recommend to anyone. The seafood gumbo is insanely good.. one issue only, the drinks are not their specialty..

    We watched a delivery guy scoop live shrimp from his cooler into a container. Asked where they were going.... ummmm all I have to say is FRESH AND DELICIOUS

    We went just for the highly-rated pecan pie. It was the best pecan pie we've ever had, with a thick layer of crunchy pecans and the caramel layer soaking into the flaky crust.

    Really classy place for a bite to eat. Tasty bloody marys and delicious gumbo. Servers are very classically dressed and it gives the impression of being back in the 20's.

    Every item I've ever ordered here was great! Always get dessert, the bread pudding is one by which to judge all others. The service is spotty. Sometimes great. Last visit our waiter was super slow.

    Pork belly is so good! But the Mr B'a shrimp BBQ is definitely killing it! Remember to keep the sauce for the bread!

    Brunch is great. Best Shrimp & Grits I've found. Made with Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, Creamy Grits and Red-eye Gravy. The Crab-cake was solid too, very little filler.
  • Mike V.
    Amazing crew and atmosphere but the best thing is the food. They know their flavors. Excellent choice to go for this one.

    Gumbo Ya ya, shrimp & grits, short rib, oysters on the half shell and all the drinks - fabulous! Bread pudding great - and dessert drinks - to die for!

    This place is the best. Anything you get will be excellent. Get the three sample soups for an appetizer so you can try them all.

    The food, staff, and atmosphere went beyond my expectations. Pricey entrees but very chill, with sports bar option, in case the game is on. Waiting with or without reservation is reasonable.

    Great atmosphere, did not enjoy the gumbo ya ya, it was actually offensive to the taste. The rest of the my party raved about their meal.

    The garlic truffle infused French fries are so addictive. Highly recommend the wood fired fish-flaky and succulent! They accept walk-ins.

    The food was great, I had a medium rare filet mignon for my main. Unfortunately the ambience was not my thing, reminding me of an old school American diner/steak restaurant with a lot of drunk people

    For a fine and hearty meal, the wood-burning grill adds smoky flavor to a pork chop glazed with honey and ginger. Read more

    Skip the gumbo, crab cakes, etc. and go for the pork belly and figs. Follow up with the lamb chop. Win, win.
