Found this little neighbourhood place in Fromer's guide when we were looking for an afforable place. It was worth the cab ride over. You know it's good when all the customers know each other, as it's a neighbourhood favorite. And the fried chicken.... made to...More

This is one of the best places for brunch on the weekends and its out-of-the-wayness ensures that it is generally a local's only kinda place. Excellent drinks, great food, and friendly service, this place is a gem.

Waiter's can be totally forgetful, or just rude, the food varies wildly from plate to plate and day to day. Worst pizza ever, never could bring myself to try it again.

We visited this place for the first time on a weekend trip for our anniversary. It's a very casual, laid back atmosphere. The waiter was very nice and our food was great. They have a great BBQ sauce recipe. Very tasty.

Overrated. The (relatively) nearby Joint is much better.

Bywater's daily specials are always great so I almost never order anything from the menu. Their Mexican food, served only on Tuesday, is pretty good too. The pizza is popular with some unusual combinations.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining
