It was your average seafood place until my friend pulled a hair out of her baked stuffed shrimp dinner. It became a little less appetizing after that. The baked stuffed flounder was acceptable but nothing great. Wait staff was great even though it was one...More

Met family here and had a tasty and very filling seafood dinner. Favorites were the platter, crab quartet, stuffed sole, and crawfish etoufee. Not inexpensive nor fancy -- but plentiful and fun.

The wife and I drive from Youngsville La to come eat here. This location is much more convenient than the NO location, the boiled potatoes appetizers are very good and we really enjoy driving to Metarie to eat here.

Deanie's Seafood is loved by locals as one of the "Best Seafood Restaurants in New Orleans" (Gambit Weekly, Times Picayune), "Best Place for Crawfish" and the favorite place for fresh Louisiana seafood prepared in our signature Creole seasonings. For over 50 years Deanie's has been serving huge portions of the best boiled, broiled and fried seafood. Its two restaurants in Bucktown and the French Quarter earned a Zagat food and service rating of "very good to excellent," and its French Quarter private dining spaces are perfect for special events, rehearsal dinner and weddings.
