This place offered a large variety of taps and the food was delicious; good if you want a quick bite and some great beer.

I have eaten many good seafood platters across the gulf coast and I would rate this very good. Only 20 dollars and my wife and I couldn't eat it all as a shared meal. Highly recommend 😎

This place certainly qualifies as a "dive" but the food is good and they have a huge selection of beer. They have some outdoor seating which is nice as the inside is full of TVs and the night we were there, full of locals and...More

If you take the street car, get off where the St Charles line turns onto Carrollton. Very carefully cross back over the tracks and through traffic. They boast 400 beers. Draft specials and bottles galore. While I do enjoy a good beer list I found...More

Called whilst waiting for the return streetcar to the city based on previous reviews. Plenty of draft beer choices in a moody, dark bar with a local feel about it.

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

fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
