The giant seafood platter can feed 3 or 4 easily. It is a great deal. So is a scoonerr if beer. Specializes in fried seafood but has a good variety. Try their seafood gumbo; it is very good. Get there early. Very popular with locals.

Deanies was the goto seafood restaurant prior to them expanding a few decades ago. Their fried seafood is ok. The bbq shrimp is good. But id stick to that. Everything else is marginal. Don't get boiled shrimp or crawfish. Normally small and not seasoned well....More

Deanie's Seafood is loved by locals as one of the "Best Seafood Restaurants in New Orleans" (Gambit Weekly, Times Picayune), "Best Place for Crawfish" and the favorite place for fresh Louisiana seafood prepared in our signature Creole seasonings. For over 50 years Deanie's has been serving huge portions of the best boiled, broiled and fried seafood. Its two restaurants in Bucktown and the French Quarter earned a Zagat food and service rating of "very good to excellent," and its French Quarter private dining spaces are perfect for special events, rehearsal dinner and weddings.
