    Do what every does and grab a Hurricane from the originators ...but keep in mind there are plenty of fresher more original recipe versions available throughout the Quarter.

    I don't know what the fuss is all about. Yes, they have hurricanes, but there are plenty of places that do them better.

    The door is not swinging! What a disappointment! I came here all the way from New York for the swinging door for nothing!

    Return your hurricane glass for a $3 refund or you can keep it and they'll box it up for you! Don't leave it on the table!

  • Gabriel G.

    Creole shrimp and a sunset for a drink was a good choice for dinner. Classic NOLA place for dinner and a drink.

  • Campbell B.

    Don't order a huge hurricane and compete with other tables to finish. Or do, and pay a $75 deposit on the glass alone.

  • Graham G.

    Nothing special but outdoor day drinking is always fun and not always this easy.

    Graham Geiselman · March 26
  • Tessa

    Much more beautiful interior than I expected. The hurricane is a must do for first timers!

    Tessa · March 23

    You get $3 back if you can return your glass in one piece.

    Hurricane was yummy but expensive... Guess it's worth it as a NOLA classic

    Sahana Kumar · March 17
  • Jess C.

    Lemonfish was yum! Don't be afraid to try other drinks besides the hurricane. Piña colada was delicious!

    Be sure to get a Hurricane! The patio bar in the back has the fastest service. They will box up your souvenir glass when you leave.

    The hurricane. Enough said.

  • Laur L.

    What isn't there to like about Pat O'Brien's? Came here for a hurricane and some piano bar action and we were seated fairly quick maybe only a 15-20 minute wait total. Definitely worth coming to!

    Laur Lo Ski · February 17
  • Joe B.

    Hurricanes, obviously. Also the piano bar is well worth the wait.

    Joe Barber · February 17
  • Gabriel H.

    Best Hurricane I have had in NOLA. Only a dollar more expensive than the beers

    The piano bar is where it's at. The hurricane glass is great to take home, but I'm a french 75 kind of gal. Walk around this bar, it's gorgeous.

    Have a hurricane in the back courtyard...they have heaters so no dramas coming here during the cooler months

  • D.j. S.

    A must stop on Bourbon St and the French Quarter for a classic hurricane. They are deceptively strong so sip slow.
