This use to be one of the best places in New. Orleans to eat. And top of the line.But, with the sad and untimely death of the founder Miss. Betsy. It has really gone down hill. It is like they do not care any more.The food has really gone down hill the most.Anything that should be hot comes out stone cold and what should be cold is room temp.Catfish is nothing more then breading. Meat cut thin. side dishes very small with little taste.Desserts without taste.Tea and coffee weak.Wait staff have to be asked to get up from tables with friends they are chatting with to wait on you.Paid about $17.00 for two but all we really got was stale bread and weak ice tea.Gave it another try for Breakfast and it was not any better.I am told that IF you know them you get better food and service. That is NOT any way to run a restaurant.Miss Betsy would be rolling in her grave if she saw what her dream has become. Nobody could of cared as much as Miss Betsy cared about this place. It was reported that even on her "death bed" she told them to leave and get to work.They promised the city to keep it alive. So her dream would live on. But, they seem not to really care to even try to come as close to a knock out, affordable place as Miss Betsy did.Her dream died with her. And we miss them both ;(

... Best meal I had in New Orleans. Now, I've only been there once, but I tried some classics -- Galatoire's, Mothers, Cafe du Monde...A little off the beaten path in the prettier sections of the French Quarter (read: away from Bourbon), Coffee Pot is run by a group of charming older ladies. Service is SLOW, so don't have any important appointments waiting. Waiting to order takes forever, and silverware is an afterthought. But once you do get your food, YUM. Don't come here to order something "normal" like omelettes or a salad -- those things are perfectly fine here, don't get me wrong, but it's the regional fare that sings here. Lost Bread is a requirement. Like a beignet, but made with Po Boy bread and probably the most delicious thing I had on the trip. Also amazing are the The roast beef Po Boy is to die. Meat is tender, bread is crunchy enough to hold up to the sauce, and the sauce is a perfect mix of tangy and sweet. Also amazing are these rice and cinnamon cakes -- can't recall the name, but so good. Go and spend some time!
As a native of New Orleans, I know how seafood support to taste & look, I know all about Southern Hospitality, but what I didn't know was about "Superior Seafood and Oyster Bar on 4338 St. Charles Ave. I was told by some friends to check it out. My husband & I went during a Sunday brunch, which was very busy to say the least, but the service we received was passed 5 stars; from the time we sign in, until we left, The person who seated us to the manager him self (John Michael Rowland) we were treated as a very special guest, While I was waiting on our food, I notice that the manager (John Michael Rowland) and the entire staff was treating every guest special, so if you want some great seafood, and want to be treated as some one SPECIAL; check out "SUPERIOR seafood and oyster bar". We shall return. (The McClouds)
In town on vacation. I called for a reservation and was told I could be put on the wait list if I could tell them when we would be there. Good thing since there was a long line that would have been ahead of us when we got there. Following our GPS to find Landry's, we didn't know the waterfront drive was only one way on the weekends. It was after dark and we got stopped by a policeman. When we told him we were from out of state and were lost he gave us a police escort to Landry's. Since this location is right on lake Pontchartrain we wanted to sit outside to enjoy the view and warm weather. Our server couldn't have been better. We both had Red Fish meals and both were delicious. The price was reasonable and it turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend this location.
Two of my friends were in town from Denver over Labor Day weekend and my BFF, who's another local, recommended we all eat there after partying all night in the French Quarter. I ordered the bbq roast beef poboy with potato salad and a drink. The poboy and potato salad was absolutely delicious! I felt like I swallowed the whole meal in whole without even inhaling :-O. I was reluctant to try their seafood gumbo because after having homemade seafood gumbo from my dad's girlfriend, doubt anyone else can touch that. I will be going back to Gumbo Shop real soon and try something else. Hopefully their other food items is just as good as the bbq roast beef poboy that I had.
My two friends from Denver were in town visiting me over Labor Day weekend. We stayed at the Hilton Riverside New Orleans hotel where I ordered the half dozen of charbroiled oysters. One of my friends do not eat oysters but I kept telling him to try at least one because they were so good. I know good seafood as I am a native of westbank Nola. He tried one and loved 'em! Those were the best charbroiled oysters I ever had in my by far. Drago's is really pricey though so I won't be eating there a lot but it'll be a once a year thing for me maybe. My star rating is solely on my judgement of their charbroiled / chargrilled oysters.
As a frequent visitor to New Orleans on the quest for the perfect shrimp & grits, my search ends here. First off, the staff was so friendly, super-attentive & entertaining. They had so many helpful suggestions and even at times joked that they hope I didnt like the food - so that they could eat it instead. One of the best suggestions for a meal was the jumbo shrimp & grits (wrapped in bacon)! The grits were AMAZING & the gravy -- changed my life! LOL The menu is a little pricey but the ambiance, service & food is more than worth it!
NOLA is one of my favorite places to visit for the good food and great atmosphere Of all the cities I could have gone I brought my mother here for the Stevie Wonder concert. We rode the trolley through the Garden District and stopped at another (over priced) place up the street. We decided to keep looking and walked up on this restaurant. After reading these reviews we went in for lunch. Friendly staff, festive atmosphere and GREAT food. I got the eggplant and crab cake stack. The price was just right too. I'll be back.
On top of the high prices if u have 5 or more even a baby you pay 18% gratuity. Then they bring you a check asking for more gratuity. It wouldnt be so bad giving it to them.if the service was better. If you complain the manager shelly will surely come and make excuses and be defensive without hearing what you are trying to say. The experience was not worth the bragging rights people have this place. Long line, poor service, big cost... No thanks
I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was out of this world. Every member of the staff went above and beyond for us. The kitchen rushed our food since we were so famished and it started pouring while we were eating so the hostess made us some ponchos. The General Manager was phenomenal. He arranged an order of the beer flight holders for us and even found a lost earring. Aces in my book.
