We recently visited here during the last weekend in June. We order Hand Grenades and sat on the patio during the day. The drinks were good. They are $10 but if you save your cup, they will discount the refill. The woman bar tender upstairs...More

On bourbon street this place is King of the souvenir cups. Try the frozen hand grenade, but sip it, don't chug it or you'll be in a world of hurt.

Stopped in here to get out of the heat. Ordered water and the signature drink, hand grenade. 7 hours later we left after making new friends from Minnesota, Colorado, Chicago, and Scotland. Nicely priced drinks. Fun bartenders. Live band. And, this was a Thursday. The...More

Get a shark attack. That is all I will say. I don’t want to ruin it. After that get a hand grenade on the rocks.

This place IS a tourist trap BUT our large group had a great time here. The bartender was great, the band was really good and the hurricanes were dangerous. We would go back.

Let’s be honest, if you’re looking for a way to smash back drinks in a good atmosphere at a cheap price, this is your place. While the cocktails can be $10 they are a large serve and fueled with alcohol. Famous for their Hand Grenade...More

If you have not had a Hand Grenade then any description with words will fall far short from even approaching the delight you will find.... This is a "bucket list" place....

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Never had a cover any of the times I have been there, but with everything these days -- you should call and verify for yourself if it is a concern. Hand Grenades are the best!
