Mr. B's is a high end restaurant with menu of many great options. But if you don't want splurge and spend a lot of money on a dinner. They also serve lunch. Which is a little bit more reasonably priced. But the bread pudding alone...More

Don't waste your time trying any other BBQ shrimp. Mr. B's makes the very best for dinner. I loved it when you could get he crabcakes as an appetizer but they weren't on the menu last visit. The gumbo is good too.

Went here on our last night and thankfully, this Brennan property was superb! A lovely restaurant vis-a-vis decor, service and food. Everything came at an appropriate time, service was great and most importantly, the food (as appropriate) was hot! We started with oysters on the...More
