    The building's history oozes from every dark corner of the bar. Go for the pedigreed Sazerac with wormwood.

    Ask to sit outside on their patio, it's a nice cozy environment. Otherwise we tried the gumbo and poy-boy for the first time, and we loved it! Everything was fresh and delicious. Worth stopping at!

    A pims cup and a muffuletta sandwich are you need. Both are insanely delicious. My best friend grew up eating here and she said it's as good now as when she was a kid.

    They are famous for their Pimm's Cup. That fame is well deserved.

    This is where they invented the Pimm's Cup. An absolute must have!

    Slow service!

    I spy roaches. Strange music selection too, but the Pimm's Cup and Sazerac are damn good.

  • Kathryn I.

    Stick to the NOLA classics: jambalaya and muffuletta with a Pimms Cup, to stay safe on menu.

    Great for drinks

    There is reason why they are famous 😛

    Once you are in, you feel you have a time travel to 200+ years ago. The people are mostly welcoming and accommodating. The muffuletta was good, along with the always-good Zapps chips.

    eat fried oysters, gumbo and lobster

    Loved the Muffalata sandwich here. The courtyard has some serious heaters in the winter.

    If you go for the Sazerac, you gotta top it with Absinthe. So good.

    The whole muffuletta can be shared up to 4 people. Then just order other sides to share such as the rich and awesome gumbo!

    My #1 favorite place in all the city. I like the roast beef po-boys & their just-spicy-enough Bloody Marys.

    Melanie Turner · December 5, 2014
  • Latham B.

    The muffuletta is great. Also enjoyed my Pimm's cup and the cheese platter. I didn't care for the jambalaya, but I find restaurants have problems getting that right.

    Great Pimm's Cup, Sazerac, Muffuletta. The patio is a nice mid-afternoon retreat.

    The Pims Cup is a must try.

    The Pimms Cup was the highlight of this restaurant, though the seafood gumbo was solid.

    Bruce was an amazing waiter. He guided us to their famous Pimms cup, slight variations, and entrees. Loved the jambalaya, and my girlfriend had an amazing po boy with beans/rice. A great spot! Great $

    Great veggie sandwich. Old fashioned was delicious. Bartender had a mighty mustache. Old school Caribbean vibe. Great place. Highly recommended for locals or tourists.

    LOVE the setting -- the building has a lot of history, and there is a wonderful courtyard in the back. The service is great, and the food is good. Get their Pimm's Cup.

    You might wanna try the 'Pimm's Original ' in this bar, one of the oldest in NOLA.

    Definitely reasonable and good food! Five of us ate for around $40! Sit outside under the heaters if you can, it's great for a cool day.

    From Roksolana's dad.

    Peter Lada · October 23, 2013
  • Raven C.

    Bad: Canned food - tomatoes veggies and beef broth were carried to the kitchen as we ate. Good: patio, cheese plate, and Pimms

    Raven Catlin · October 16, 2013
  • Tina L.

    Pimm's Cup 👍

    Tina Latino · October 14, 2013

    Delicious Pimm's Cup. Have your beverage and/or food in the hidden garden. Beautiful restaurant since 1797.

    Colan M · September 14, 2013
  • Rebecca C.

    Ask for a Pimm's Cup, be polite, and enjoy one of the best cocktails in New Orleans. Ask for a Pimm's Rose or any other misguided, stupid or confused ordering you might as well go back to Bourbon St.
