Two days in a row we are at Turtle Bay. We were introduced to this place as the best Crawfish boil around, we certainly cannot disputed as this was our first ever! Mike, the gentleman in charge of the Crawfish was very pleasant and welcoming....More

Stopped in here per recommendation. The drinks were amazing- well worth the money. We started with the potato skins which were cheesy, bacony goodness. I ordered the pizza which was good & my boyfriend got the special sirloin. The bartender/waiter was amazing! Hilarious & paid...More

Wow! This place deserves -5 stars for horrifying service. The male server on 3/27 at 6:30pm was the worst I’ve experienced in this town. Short tempered, offered zero input and had a serious attitude problem. Too bad because the 16oz ribeye looked good. Had to...More

I stopped in for dinner and sat at the bar. Bartender was friendly. The place fills up supper fast but it does clear out quick too. A lot of people stop in for a drink and then take the drink with them to continue touring...More

Good service is the only positive I have for Turtle Bay. Hamburger was ordered well done and it wasn’t even close. More rare to medium rare. Pulled pork nachos were not good. Gumbo was bland. Beer was cold. Left 3/4 of our food.

I came here for a few drinks. The Moscow mule was mediocre and the margaritas were extremely sweet and not very strong compared to some nearby spots. Setting was pretty good though. Overall an average experience.

My husband really enjoyed the crawfish meal from here. It was 2# of crawfish, potatoes, and a small corn on the cob for only $13. The drinks were great and the service was pretty good for a touristy type bar! The draft selection was surprisingly...More

We also loved this bar in New Orleans. Again, open 24/7. Friendly and helpful staff. Really good bar food. Great vibe.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

I truly don't know about AAA discount. If you have 2 drinks with your meal, plan on spending about $15 per person for middle of the menu items. I remember this as a sports bar with mostly burgers and appetizers but someone... More
