This casual restaurant in Metairie, just outside New Orleans, has good tasting seafood for the whole family. The portions are very generous. The staff was very nice and had quick service. The price was reasonable.

The food at Deanie's is great. Ordered the half platter along with a long island iced tea. The bartenders really know how to make drinks and the wait staff is courteous and friendly. Very nice dining experience.

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.
