Best softwhell crab I've ever had, and the fried corn and fried pickles are to die for. The Crazy Lobster is located at the River Walk Mall area. Even outside dining, enjoy the Mississippi River while river watching!!

The food was good. The waiter was great. This is not the place you want to sit for 2 hours to have dinner. It took forever to get the food. You order desert, a management person wants to talk to our waiter before the order...More

Very bad food and very expensive. They do not use real butter, they give you some type of oil. The food is not seasoned and has a old fishy taste. Two of us ate there and it cost over $100. The service is poor. We...More

We stopped for appetizers and a beer. When the credit card only receipt came back for over $50, we asked for the itemized bill which was $30. We were given a lame excuse that it was mixed up with another table. We would have bought...More

My title says it all, except to say that if you're up for a down and out frat boy experience, you should look no further.

Visited the restaurant as we wanted authentic shellfish Cajun style. Upon arrival we were seated only to wait for 10 mins before we were waited on. Ordered two beers and a shellfish dinner - the snow crab was excellent as were the prawns. The waiter...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
