Best experience and food. First time eating crawfish with the kids. Oyster and shrimp Po boys we off the chart. Service was great and cold beers helped wash it all down. Worth the trip if you are in town.

Came here on a week night with out of town friends. Was not crowded and Paula seated us right away. Ordered Boudin Balls and Combo appetizers, then asked for the main courses to be held until we were ready (boiled crawfish, dozen raw oysters and dozen chargrilled oysters.) Everything came at once - we sent the oysters back until we... More

I frequented Frankie & Johnny's years ago in law school. I visited again on a trip to New Orleans and it is still the best. The gumbo is wonderful, the oysters are perfect, and the shrimp/oyster po boy can't be beat. They've cleaned it up and brightened it up a bit since my last trip. It will always be my... More

The Chargrilled oysters are the best I have ever had!! Better than Acme to me. Great atmosphere, service, and food.

I want to be kind because I'm a New Orlenian who grew up and moved away. My wife and I have a home in uptown so I thought, "Let me show off a hometown favorite that I went to as a kid. Well this place has seen better days or perhaps the new ownership is still trying to right the... More

Visited with a large group during Mardi Gras season. I had the fried catfish, and it was very good. We also had boiled crawfish - tasty. I don't know of anyone in our group who didn't enjoy their dinner. Out of the way if you stay uptown or French Quarter but worth the cab ride.

We have eaten at Frankie and Johnny's three or four times and have never gotten a bad meal. The fried shrimp platter was wonderful as well as the meatball with marina was delicious. Love the sweet potato fries!

Frankie and Johnny's is a neighborhood joint, a little off the beaten path in Uptown (not too far from Audubon Park and Zoo). Friendly atmosphere, good service, and really good food. In addition to the oysters we tried the red beans and rice (with a fried pork chop!) and had a shrimp platter. Would recommend any and all. One of... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
