Had not been to New Orleans in several years and went to Mr. B's for Sunday brunch. The barbecue shrimp was as good as I remembered. One of the richest, most savory, delicious things I have ever eaten. And the bread...both alone and dipped in the bbq shrimp...just delish. Truly an eating pleasure.

Excellent food and service a block off Canal St. The place is busy but without lines for lunch and dinner - always a good sign in my book!

Why write a review? Everone knows the Brennan name means Quality, Taste & Service. Mr.B's is a perennial favorite of mine. The BBQ shrimp, the crab cakes, the gumbo Yaya starts your feast followed by entrées of seafood, lamb chops, and steaks. Great New Orleans flair, big bold tastes, great table service. Put it on your list of "don't miss."

This was one of my favorite places to eat in New Orleans. I ordered the steak, and it was one of the most delicious steaks I have ever had. The spinach was so fresh and cooked so perfectly I was elated. The portions were perfect. Please save room for dessert. I ordered the chocolate cupcake thing and it was out... More

This restaurant was right across from our hotel. We got into our hotel around 3 PM and were hungry and were told to go across the street to . Mr B's. The dining room was closed for lunch so we went to the bar. The bartender was great as was the food. Great place to relax, have a drink and... More

My wife and I started with chicken gumbo and the scallops. Honestly both of these were average or below. We were disappointed until the main courses. I had the bbq shrimp and my wife had the pork chop. Both were beyond fantastic. Both were individually the best we've had of each. Dessert was pecan pie. Again, fantastic. 4.5 stars despite... More

So my husband and I were walking around on a Sunday morning around 10am and wanted to get a quick bite to eat. The first couple of places we went had at least a 45 minute wait. We saw Mr. B's right across from our hotel and thought we'd give it a try. We enjoyed eggs & lamb sausage on... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
