Had such a great time having my dinner at the bar alone that I came back next day with friends. Bartenders are great food is better and everyone enjoyed ourselves. Do try this Brennan Family establishment! Great steaks, fun and delicious appetizers and generous cocktails!

We saved Mr. B's for our last night in New Orleans, as we'd visited previously and had a fantastic time. Our food was great, but the service was seriously lacking this time. We came to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, and we did get some balloons,...More

Stopped to get out of the cold rain. We were looking for a light lunch and the Autumn bisque and gumbo were just what the Dr ordered. Also, a couple of cranberry margaritas helped a lot too. Very good food, service, and bartender Dean was...More

From cocktails to dessert the food and drink were spot on. Local flavors, beautifully presented and excellently prepared. Our server was sweet, but not very responsive or anticipatory of our orders. Brunch took 2 hours at our table, it was nice and relaxed, but other...More

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
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
