For a restaurant that has been around since 1971, I had never been to this long time establishment in the Lakeview area. I ended up being pleasantly surprised and thought to myself, I could come here again. The restaurant and bar area are spacious, with...More

Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake
Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for
family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans
Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel
Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush
Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and
the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix
of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond
