No Frills, Just Good Steak

Decided to try it although some reviews here were mixed. The place is VERY retro, tile floors, juke box playing Mob Hits (Sinatra, Como, etc), and modestly decorated. Wooden tables with wooden slat-back chairs.
Don't come here expecting a lot of flash and ambience; this is a modest steakhouse, serving GREAT steak-it's prime dry-aged beef which will tend to be a little tougher than choice wet-aged beef served in nearly all steak houses these days but dry-aged is about 100% more flavorful.
Menu, as in most steak houses, is ala carte. I chose a NY strip medium rare, sauteed spinach, and au gratin potatos. Had a scotch and water before dinner and it was served in an old-fashioned diner water glass. Glass of wine with dinner, and the manager made me his version of New Orlean's famous Sazerac after dinner. Your basic eat-and-get-the-hell out kind of place. Would go back in a heartbeat. Great meal and a great value. I wish Virginia Beach or Richmond had a place like this and this good. Seems like some reviewers here have limited knowlege of beef and steak houses in general.

The Only Bad Place We Dined At in New Orleans

We recently went to New Orleans for the first time and of all the amazing places we visited, I simply cannot understand the good reviews for this place. It is over priced, the service is mediocre and there is no atmosphere to make up for any of it. There were 17 adults and we were given 5 menus. Everything is a la carte, including the garlic bread. $25.00 for the steak alone which requires a steak knife. And the salad is ridiculous. Lettuce, 1/8 slice of tomato and dripping in dressing on a small plate for $4.50. Would never eat there again. Can't understand it being a local's place at all.

The worst steak we have ever eaten

Though our review is date in 2010, we went to this restaurant in 2006. This was the worst food we have ever eaten. The steak was thin, tough and fatty. We could not eat most of it. We had heard of the great food for years and were shocked at how at the poor quality of the steak. We will never go back to this restaurant. If we could give it less than one star we would.

I like steak. I love this place's steak.

I went here back during hurricane Ike. Me and about 14 friends came in from Houston and were knocked back by the food here. They put us in a back room and we were taken care of. The food was awesome. The place is no frills and does not try to impress you with the decor or some fancy wine list. It just has serious steaks. I am taking my wife there this weekend.

CRESCENT CITY - BEST IN TOWN

Crescent City, as the locals refer to it for short, has been around and owned by the same family since 1934.

Their three little private booths with privacy curtains are a thing of the past. The dinning room still has tile floors and walls and looks like it is out of the 40s. Great ambiance. The staff is very personal and as another customer wrote they make you feel like you are the only customer. For a steak house the prices are affordable.



Oh and the food. The best steaks in town. Cooked just as you order and hot and sizzling when they place it on your table.



Hope I made you hungry. If so, go and enjoy a great steak where the locals go.

No frills, No BS, Just a Damn Good Steak

This is my family's favorite steakhouse for years. In contrast to Ruth's Chris or the other fancier steakhouses around town, this place cuts through the BS to make the most amazing steaks I've ever had. The casual atmosphere makes for a great family dinner, or bring a buddy for a steak and a beer while you watch the game on the big TVs. If you're in for the romantic bit, there are private booths.

I've moved north for graduate school and I miss this place unbelievably. When I come home to New Orleans to visit, my family celebrates by going out to our favorite place - Crescent City.

The steaks are affordable and absolutely unbelievable. The wait staff and owners are polite and attentive, and we've made friends over the years. If you don't mind skipping all the ceremony of having your napkin folded when you get up to take a leak (what real man actually likes that?), but you want a great evening with family or friends over mind-blowing steaks, go to Crescent City. It's a landmark.
