You can't go wrong by stopping here for a meal or a drink and music. Everyone was extremely friendly, service was very good, bathrooms clean and after a five day visit I hated to leave. Everyday I found myself thoroughly entertained by every musical performer...More

This is a regular stop on our New Orleans trips and as always the courtyard dining at Bourbon Heat allows for a great overall experience. A great place to take the kids and the food is always really good. This time we did experience issues...More

Very nice servers. We got an assortment of appetizers and dinners to share. Food is just ok but service is good. Nice place to visit on Bourbon but nothing great on the food. Reasonably priced for being in the middle of everything.
