For a restaurant chain the food was a lot better than I expected. We got it immediately and I recommend the etouffe. My server was super efficient and friendly. Fun place to go for a birthday if you like attention.

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
