Cooter Brown’s remains my favorite place in the New Orleans area for oysters and beer. With a huge quantity of beer available, they move through it fast enough to keep it fresh. The oysters are always excellent. Order at the counter and open a single...More

Went with family and had to have the kids wait at the tables outside while we ordered (21 and up bar) the food inside. But well worth it. Food was excellent. Best burgers, poboys, chicken tenders and cheese fries in town.

The barman was superb, chatted to everybody who came in. Knew a lot about the beers and his recommendation hit the spot. The oysters were superb but watch out for the horseradish sauce as it is really hot.

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
