We never come to Nola without at least one stop here. After lunch we stopped for our lunch fix. It never fails to please. Great place, we’ve never been disappointed. We eat at the bar often because the place is always full.

Great meal and a wonderful jazz trio. We had the grilled Mahi-mahi and shrimp & grits and recommend both. The Magnolia 75 is a tasty alternative to mimosas.

of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
