    Reasonably prized breakfast. The pain perdu (french toast) with sausage was amazing, the french bread was delicious and soft. Hash browns were good, but the biscuits were average. Coffee was good.

    Started with a Hurricane, and then another. A bowl of Gumbo with two spoons. (To die for) Then I had the Fried Shrimp Platter. GREAT! My wife had the Shrimp Fettuccini Alfredo and two Hurricanes!

    The tuna special is the way to go. Blackened tuna stuffed with a crabcake topped with crawfish and a sauce served with a side of jambalaya and a vegetable. The service was great ask for Ben.

    The chicken fettuccine Alfredo is top class! Spicy Cajun sauce served over a delicious fried chicken breast. And you should really try the Gator bates. Surprised me how tasty it was!

    Crab cakes & alligator tail both amazing!! Fried seafood platter is huge! Lots for what you're paying for. Family of 5 & only waited for 15 mins or a table at 730 on a busy Tuesday night

    The Oceana oysters were the best oysters I have ever had. It seems touristy bot don't be fooled. It's worth the wait to get in the food is amazing.

    The Redfish with crawfish étouffée is great. Had gator bites and oysters Rockefeller for appetizers. My husband enjoyed his classic martinis, too. Creme broule was a good choice for dessert.

    Blackened chicken was great. Had me sweating just enough to know I was in New Orleans but not enough to have me on the toilet. The rice was also phenomenal! Two thumbs up!

    Gator bites served with a spicy dipping sauce. Mm! Surprisingly tasty. Also try the chicken fettuccine Alfredo. Deliciously fried chicken breast with a spicy Cajun sauce and fettuccine. yum!

    Wow - I did read through the reviews but lost some trust in my fellow foursquarers. Had high hopes for oceana, but basically seems like chain restaurant food. Didn't hold a candle to other NO fare.

    I suggest Crawfish Etuffee and Taste of New Orleans, very tasty, no digestion problems. If you take lemonade you don't pay.

    Blackened Redfish... Seasoned and pan-broiled in a searing skillet. Served with jambalaya and sauteed vegetables with a big glass of southern iced tea?! Yes, please!

    Usually this is the best place to go for chargrilled oysters but this time it was horrible. Oysters were undercooked jumbalaya was way too salty and they even charged for bread. Slippery slope...

    Delicious! One of the best places we ate at in New Orleans. Tried the turtle soup (100 year old recipe) and it was good. Tasted like chili.

    Johnell is a great server. Very attentive to the customer. Get the chargrilled oysters the ocean way. Perfection! A seafood gumbo also a win!

    Great Good. I recommend the chargrilled oysters (either Rockefeller or Oceana), BBQ Shrimp & Red Beans & Rice. Throughly enjoyed our experience.

    If you're starving, take the Maw Maw's Cajun breakfast challenge... Also the Eggs Melanaza are as good as touted. Bloody Mary is a necessary staple.

    Seafood gumbo and crab cakes are both musts!! Crab cakes have a sauce over top - table favorite!

    Crabcakes & BBQ shrimp combo on the appetizer menu is a great customized main dish. Ask for Jaycee! Best service in town compliments the food

    Get the red fish it is a big portion for the price and taste delicious. Bread pudding was pretty good not the best I've had but worth it.

    Spice up your life with the Ragin Cajun Bloody Mary paired with the alligator bites. Then cool down with the Spiced Apple Mojito. The mint & rum blend will feel like you took a sip of heaven

    This place has the best gumbo I have ever had. Get the bowl because the cup isn't enough! The blackened oysters are also amazing!

    Food was excellent. Also, the upstairs dining area was very quiet and a welcome change from the hustle bustle of bourbon

    Bar seating is good and the service is great. The hurricanes are great and the blackened catfish Poboy is amazing!!!

    Blah! Nothing special. Had to add a bottle of Tabasco to make the Crawfish Ettouffé interesting. Also, the bar smells bad. Needs cleaning. Scent takes over the whole place.

    The vegetarian red beans are made with pork. Eggplant Napoleon is soggy and gross. Service is unbelievably slow. But other than that - it's awesome :-/

    Messed up our order, brought out my meal, then my husband's meal and our appetizer last; horrible gumbo and lackluster shrimp creole. Never again!

    One of the better bloody marys in NOLA. Served with pickled beans and a jalapeno garnish, it's got a good bite.
  • Christopher M.
    Slightly overpriced, but this casual tourist spot is a solid stop for tasty jambalaya and crawfish etoufee
