Success! Thanks for posting your review of Dooky Chase Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Don't let the name fool you, great food & great service!

This legendary restaurant has so much history & the moment you step in the doors of Dooky Chase you see amazing ambiance, smell spectacular home cooked scents & immediately feel like family. I wasn't a huge fan of the Mac & Cheese, however the jambalaya, red beans & rice, shrimp, grits & bread pudding more than made up for it. The original owners just had their 60th wedding anniversary & still... view more

Worst restaurant experience

We arrived at 1:30 for Lunch and there were 4 parties ahead of us waiting in the holding area. A young lady took our name. It looked like there were about 10-15 tables open but none clean. We waited for 10-15 min and were the last waiting. The hostess was clearing tables. The staff and manager were rarely seen. People sitting at their tables with dirty dishes in front of them. I saw one man chase a staff member acros... view more

Dooky Chase Open for Take Out - March 2008

I will be visiting New Orleans for the first time in a few days and Dooky Chase was highly recommended. Sadly, all internet searches resulted in temporarily closed or no information at I call for myself. As of today, they are OPEN. They have take out only, but may be open for sit down service as early as Tuesday, March 26th. I am very hopeful about having the Dooky Chase experience on my soon visit to N'awli... view more

I'm so glad I got to savor this restaurant before the storm. If ever they open up, imagine you're having the best soul food in town set out as if you were fine dining. Good ambiance for business dinners wanting a taste of a New Orleans kitchen.

Dooky Chase is one of a kind!

I was in New Orleans last week after attending a family reunion in Biloxi, and my mom and I stopped by after other tourists recommended it for dinner. I was floored by the gumbo and enjoyed every bit of the paneed veal. My mom had the prime rib which was done to perfection! After dining across from Patti Labelle (who randomly ate their that night while she was in town) we bought the Dooky Chase cookbook, by Leah C... view more

Excellent fresh home-made Creole and seafood !

Dooky Chase's is a great place out of the hustle and bustle of downtown and the french quarter. Chef Leah Chase's personality shows in her signature dishes. I had the Chicken and Shrimp Creole. The chicken and shrimp were so tender and flavorful. The creole sauce was very fresh tasting and light. You can tell that this dish was made fresh to order. The ""House"" salad dressing is out of this world. It is a wine and o... view more

User review by wadejina

Chef Chase is a warm and wonderful lady, she came out to see us and talk to us, that was the best food I have had in ages. The service was great and value is moderate. I went to about 5 restaurants while I was New Orleans, it is the best out of them all, funny enough it is not listed in the hotels books nor Where magazine. I will also recommend this place anytime.

Dooky Rules

Leah Chase defines warm, graceful hospitality. Her cooking is first rate -- greaseless Southern/Creole cooking is a rarity, even in New Orleans, but she manages to pull it off with flair. The crab bisque was heavenly, the lake shrimp wonderfully light, the shrimp clemenceau remarkable, and the pecan pie flavorful without being overwhelming. Leah's grandson, Trevor, offered us the most professional yet engaging ser... view more
