The renovations they did to the restaurant are good- BUT they should have created a waiting area that allows patrons and wait staff to walk freely without bumping into people who are crowding the door... Waiting to come in. While we were sitting down, eating, near the Hostess stand, people were standing so close to our table, it was rather... More

My overall experience was good at the restaurant. The only thing that threw me off was the entrance was on the side of the building and not the front. I went with some family and because all the menu items seemed good we had trouble selecting but the waitress was very helpful with making our final decisions. For appetizers we... More

We met here for a mini family reunion. They seated us all around a round table which enabled us to visit. Several had the shrimp/catfish platter and portions were so large they wished they had shared. One had the grilled pork chops and another had the special for the day which was grilled catfish with a sauce of shrimp stew.... More

I went this past weekend for lunch on Sunday and enjoyed my meal so much!! We had a group of 6 and everyone couldn't stop talking about how great everything was. The oysters are fresh and super tasty as well as the blackened fish. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND EAT HERE!

I guess we are creatures of habit as we visit New Orleans Food and Spirits every time we return to New Orleans. Our party of six was seated quickly. The server was very polite and efficient throughout the meal. I had Shrimp Remoulade salad (large) that was served with an abundance of boiled shrimp (you can select hot or cold... More

We had an appointment near there, and hadn't eaten lunch, so this was recommended. We were quite pleased with both the lunch and service.

I typically enjoy restaurants and have very few expectations with one exception: if you are serving bread, don't give me "whipped spread." I had a bowl of gumbo and got the spread in individual serving pods. The experience up to that point was great, and the rest of the food was decent.
