Had shrimp and grits dinner, was amazing. Think I ate my dinner with my eyes closed the whole time. Washed down with a blue Hawaiian. Delicious. Staff was fantastic.

The service was OK. The food was mediocre. The drinks Were excellent. Nice view of the river. We made reservations however they were not necessary. It wasn’t very crowded compared to other establishments.

Came here because we found a Groupon. Food for the most part was really good. The shrimp pasta was amazing. The shrimp in the shrimp and crab boil was very over cooked and chewy. The fried shrimp was excellent. Would go back here again!

Family of 5 stopped for a dinner! While we didn’t fit at most tables of 4 they accommodated us under the cover when it started to sprinkle. Fish tacos, shrimp & grits, shrimp P.O. boy, and shrimp pasta Orleans! One refill & $150!

Okay. You walk up to this place and say 'tourist trap.' It has the right location and look. But ignore the instinct to walk away. You will miss innovative drinks, fun food and the best view of the water of any restaurant I've been to...More

We had a little date night to cap off our vacation. Location is right on the water, very romantic. They also had a live band a plus. Food was delicious and plenty. We ordered 2 starters and one meal and still had leftovers for lunch...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
