All very good except the greeter/hostess....maybe she was just having one of those "don't want to be here" days. Server was on spot, good recommendations. Bountiful portions at a reasonable price.

I went with a friend hoping for a good experience by the river. The food was just alright, the tables small.

Had the small stale crab cakes and the ambiance was cheap. Go for drinks and head somewhere else for dinner. You are nest to a mall which is great.

My wife and I had the opportunity to have a port side drink at the Crazy Lobster. Even though the Bloody Mary was not in-expensive it was one of her best ever. It was served exactly to order and even came with a large shrimp....More

This place was awful! My stuffed lobster was cold, and the stuffing was flavorless. My husband ordered the jambalaya and it was mushy with no flavor at all. I should have been wary.... for I purchased a Groupon for $60 worth of food for $31....More

Right around the corner from the Hilton Riverside Hotel, this place is wonderful. You can sit outside and enjoy the river. Warning - house salads are huge! Have the Banana Foster cheesecake!

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
