After leaving the Saints game, we stopped by to pick up dinner. The food was awesome and fresh. The seafood platter was the best and we had food for the next day and then some, we'll worth the price. They always have given a generous portion of quality food. I have been eating here since I was a little girl... More

I really want to rate this visit as TERRIBLE however the server was super sweet and apologetic. It was the Manager who was the problem. My friends and I went to Deanie's during our visit to New Orleans for our school's homecoming. We planned, months in advance, to visit this restaurant as it is one our favorites when we're there....

Delicious and really casual. The portions are huge- possibly even ridiculous! Our family of four ordered four dinners and left with half of it in doggy bags! Yum! The crawfish nachos are special!

I am living in Texas, so occasionally I get homesick for some good NOLA food. I just had a muffaletta. Oh... my... goodness! That's some good food!

We always get the bbq shrimp and, if available, soft shell crabs. Love the boiled potatoes at the table instead of bread. I was able to substitute cauliflower (which was perfectly cooked!) for the french fries for an additional $1. No big deal and worth it. Bread pudding was okay. Service was fine. We'll always go back.

When I visited the Deanie's in Metairie, I expected good service, pleasant management and fresh fried food, well that wasn't the case. I took my friend who is a very elderly person and I want her to enjoy some great seafood, we waited over 45 minutes to get served, the order was taken promptly but the wait on the delivery... More

We always enjoy our visit to Deanie's Seafood. Love, love the crawfish balls. The potatoes they bring as an appetizer were seasoned perfectly. Plenty of food to go around.

Easy to find, reasonably priced and nice atmosphere for families. We shared the half seafood platter and had some to take home. Add to your places to try!

This was my first time to Deanie's - so I had to go with their specialty - the barbecue shrimp. The first surprise was the potatoes that are brought to the table - they are boiled and have a fabulous flavor & are a great starter to the meal. Then came the main event - the barbecue shrimp. First of... More

Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, the server staff eager to assure your dining experience is fantastic and oh, such great New Orleans high quality food. We had a group outing and chose to splurge and go for the Full Seafood Platter. Seven of us were in the group and we thought we could eat everything on the large platter. We were... More
