Food is still good, but the restaurant is under construction making dusty and noisy. But be sure to visit when the remodel is complete.More

Sorry, we are in the process of making Huck Finn's an even more appealing restaurant. We have a few more projects, one which involves adding an oyster bar. This week involved some flooring replacement in one of our three rooms, which was a three day...More

We loved Huck Finn's! It was our first meal during our stay in New Orleans and we were impressed and pleased. We shared the Taste of New Orleans and would highly recommend it. The Crawfish etouffee was especially good.

I don't even like seafood, and the catfish was delicious! Also recommend the red beans and rice. Best bar service ever from John Joseph Johnson Jr! His lemon drops are the best in the French quarter!More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
