I'll start off by saying the prices they provide online aren't the same prices on the menu in the actual restaurant. Which for me isn't that big of a deal but if I was budget conscious that would piss me off. This was my second...More

We have been here twice now and so far we have loved everything. Gator bites were why we came and they were worth it. Crawfish broil was a heap. Catfish was a huge, thick portion. The fried chicken is what I would recommend to just...More

I'll start by saying this place is small and what I consider to be a "hole in a wall." There is not a ton of seating. We were promptly seated. The food was soooo good! We had fried oysters for our appetizer and they were...More

We visited the restaurant with a group of friends. Ordering was a bit overwhelming and food came out at very different times. I was done with my meal before my husband received his. Other than this issue, the food was great. I had the fried...More

I don't like cajun anything, at all. HOWEVER - I came to visit Lady N'awlins for the first time this past week and let's just say it wasn't my last time. Oysters? I greatly dislike. HOWEVER - I had them twice this week. Every 'cajun'...More

Friends recommended I'd try this place because I was on the hunt for some rather tasty Shrimp & Grits. I was definitely not disappointed!!! Everything was great! The food, the drinks, and the service. Upon entering the establishment, it appeared to be just a cool,...More

This popular restaurant/bar in Richmond's historic Fan District is known for their Cajun/creole menu. I've ordered their fried oysters before and thought they were quite good. However, this week we visited and I ordered the Oyster Trio as an appetizer and what a disappointment. I...More

Lady Nawlins is a typical bar with chalk art on the ceiling and small booths. The reason I will be going back is because they have great beers on tap and amazing food inspired by New Orleans! Bacon wrapped plantains, oysters Rockefeller, shrimp and grits...no...More

The restaurant is just below street level and small, so it's somewhat dark and intimate. Brick walls as I recall. Not really upscale looking or anything. A bar takes up most of the interior space.
