We try to eat lunch instead of dinner at the really expensive restaurants so we can try them without the huge check. The bloody Mary's are just $1.50 at lunch. They were pretty good but my husband wanted to come here to try the BBQ shrimp and he was not disappointed. He wore the bib and I was glad because... More

Both cocktails and food are very good. Love the $1.50 martini's and Bloody Mary's for lunch. Gumbo YaYa is wonderful and so are the fried eggplant. Only complaint is for $6 you get 4 measly small sticks of eggplant 🍆. The BBQ shrimp are great and very messy, crab cakes are okay but, Houston's Restaurant are so much better. The... More

This restaurant is right across the street from Hotel Monteleone if you're staying there. The food is excellent. It was recommended by a friend who went there in the past. I tried the famous barbecued shrimp. It is jumbo gulf shrimp in a buttery sauce with many flavorings such as Worcestershire sauce and others. I was told by our friendly... More

During our recent visit to New Orleans, we had the opportunity to dine at Mr. B's. Boy are we glad we did. Here's what we saw: Our appetizers, - The crab cakes are the best we've ever had, anywhere. Period. Lot's of crab, not "mash potato-ey" in texture, nor over breaded nor dry. It was very thick and it held... More

My third visit here, first with a group of tourists who'd never been. We had a small hiccup with the reservation (not the restaurant's fault), but had a short wait on an incredibly crowded Wednesday night - where do all these people come from ? Wine, warm bread, shared appetizers, steak, pork chop, shrimp & grits - nice spread from... More

Went in with my wife for a late lunch appetizer. Crab cakes. Fantastic. $1.50 bloody marys. That's right. So good we went back for dinner. Everything was spectacular and not overly priced, considering the location. Very nice restaurant. Warm, dark wood, classic san francisco style interior. Highly recommended.

We had eaten here a few years ago and remembered how wonderful the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp and Grits were, so we came here specifically for that dish. It is just outstanding. The grits are the creamiest I've ever eaten and the shrimp were seasoned perfectly. The waiter said they add mascarpone cheese to get that creamy taste. And the red... More

Loved this restaurant. Incredible service at every point of the meal. The food was fantastic. The restaurant is in a nice location with a good atmosphere. It is expensive but worth every penny!

Great service and varied menu including many New Orleans specialties; Bloody Mary's seemed especially popular. The prompt service will give you extra time for sightseeing so good choice for lunch. Convenient location.

Must try the BBQ shrimp dish. Good thing they give you a bib as you will need it. Highly recommend this as well as the crab cake and lemon icebox pie. Won't be disappointed.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
