I had the great fortune of visiting this eclectically decorated restaurant, outfitted with a photo booth and a grocery cart on the ceiling, to take in a fantastic dining experience.....or so I was told. I ordered a shrimp po' boy and let me tell you-I was told correctly!! This po' boy was teeming over with shrimp, the bread was really... More

Took the Canal St Street car Jefferson Davis and walked down to Parkway...the line was out into the patio but we heard it moves fast. Pick up a menu if you're in back and start planning. A good po-boy depends on the bread, and this bread is amazing! I had the bar-b-q beef and husband had roast beef - so... More

My brother-in-law's office is just up from Parkway Bakery and Tavern, but it was not until his daughter suggested it, some years ago, that we first went. Each visit has been great, but the last revealed an expansion to the restaurant, with an expanded outdoor dining area. In the past, it could well be crowded at lunch, but it seems... More

At the time I went, there was a bit of a line, but man, it was so worth it! I had the surf and turf. It is messy to eat, but man! Would eat this every time I'm in town! Also, if you get a chance try the boot, its a nice local beer and very good. Just let the... More

Went to Parkway for the first time on a Sunday for happy Hour. Not only were the drinks great but the food was awesome. Shared a shrimp poboy and gravy debris fries. The shrimp were large and plentiful. I have had many poboys all over Nola and this has been the best! We also tried the shot of the month... More

Best po-boy sandwiches in New Orleans and probably all of Louisiana. President Obama has eaten here in the past. Family owned and operated for over 100 years. Free parking is plentiful.

I ordered the Parkway surf and turf, which is their roast beef and thin gravy with fried shrimp. Very hard to eat though, falls apart. Wife ordered the meatball sub, she said it was OK.

On my recent trip to New Orleans, I was most excited to get a Po-Boy at Parkway Bakery & Tavern. I walked here from City Park, after exploring some of the graveyards and found myself at the end of a rather long line. I went on New Years Eve, so I do not know if the wait is usually long,... More

Went here based on TA and other recos and was not disappointed. It was a Wednesday at noon and was braced for crowds, but we got a high top right in the bar area. Mike was very attentive as he took our orders and even made recos for non-touristy things to do in NOLA. We had the shrimp, oyster (only... More

Maybe I live too far north to be an expert on po-Boys but I didn't find this place amazing or all that good. I have had better po-boys at other places inside and outside of New Orleans. The po-boy I ordered was a shrimp po-boy. The best part about the po-boy was the bread but I found the shrimp not... More
