Crab stuffed redfish was to die for! Our promised twenty minute wait was only five. The house red wine was sublime and the service was excellent. This place came highly recommended and it did not disappoint.

They sell variety food and very tasty. The pickup truck parked outside of the restaurant impressed and also made me curious what kind of place this is. Inside of the restaurant is also interesting and I got excited. Overall, I had the great food (fried...More

Overall food was good and the complimentary garlic cornbread was delicious! There was a long wait, but they're popular so that's to be expected. We sat in a drafty corner with creaky windows that let in some cigarette smoke from the people waiting outside because...More

We were disappointed with our meal. The food was ok. Typical for a bar and not a restaurant. Expected better. The prices were reasonable. The service was good.

A friend recommended Jacques-Imo as an option if we do not want to get all dressed up for an exquisite dinner. Her recommendation hit the spot. JI served one of the best Grouper I've ever had. It was grill with a slightly sweet sauce over...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s

I went there with locals who were born and raised in NOLA and we went to a really great jazz music bar after dinner which was right next door. The neighborhood seemed artsy so there may be other things going on too. We took... More
