I have been eating here since 1987. The quality of the food has stayed high and never disappointed me. If you don't here, you have deprived yourself and your tastebuds! You must eat at Deanie's.

Went there with high expectations. Ordered the jumbo shrimp with crab meat. Unfortunately the shrimp were not large. Portion was huge and service was very good.

We just happen to stumble on this place. Got here about 6pm before it got packed. Lots of locals. Free delicious boiled potato that my wife loved, boiled with crawfish, so naturally favored. Everything was good portion. My wife tried the crawfish etouffee first time,and...More

Food was ok not as good as I had heard. Although you get potatoes instead of bread at the beginning of your meal.

I ordered catfish. It was generous and delicious. Loved also their fresh bread. Was disappointed because they had no hush puppies.

One of the top five (in my opinion) restaurants in the French Quarter. Excellent Cajun recipes and halos steeped in history. This is a "can't miss" choice for dinner in the Big Easy.
