The food was excellent! I wish and wish that some of the items on the mardi gras menu were included in the regular menu. The drinks were delicious! The music was good and the place was lively. I coconut cake was too dry. The appetizers and entrees were excellent! The service is a bit slow, which is something that I have experienced in the past too.

I would have rated the food a 5 but the chicken tender appetizer was very dry. Also, I am not crazy about sitting at high tables with bar style chairs.

My reservation was for 7pm and we came on time. It took about 30 minutes before we got seated because our table was not ready yet. It was a very cold evening and we were freezing while waiting. The food was not that good for the price. On the positive side, the service was good.

I'd been to Bourbon street a few times before and enjoyed it, but always thought it was a little pricey. Regardless, we took my cousin there for her birthday and did not have a good experience. My catfish Po'Boy sandwich was tasteless and mushy so I sent it back and order the BooCoo balls appetizer instead, which are usually amazing. This time they were frozen in the center. I sent those back and the manager apologized but I was a little surprised she didn't offer to comp a round of drinks or anything like that. At that point, everyone was finished with their meals and I did not want to order a third meal, so we left. Needless to say, we wont be going back.

Everything was great. I went there to celebrate my birthday and I loved it. Food is a little pricey. I ordered a burger and my friend ordered a steak. Both items came out basically a little rare. Would have preferred for the meat to be cooked a little longer. The mac and cheese is amazing! Would absolutely have that again.

I enjoyed the brunch food. I had French toast and bacon which was cooked very well. Drinks also were pretty good. I loved the ambience. I love the southern feel. Service was pretty slow. It was very hard getting a server (there wasn't even that many people). Definitely will come back. Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.

Everything was excellent. My friends and I each enjoyed what we ordered. I had the marinated skirt steak was was flavorful and tender. My friend loved her shrimp Po Boy and my other friend greatly enjoyed the Cowboy shrimp. The portion sizes were huge and we all had leftovers to take home. Even the "bread basket" had good treats in it. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Delicious food with real flavor. There are a lot of choices and I have never yet had a bad meal. The Cajun Sampler and any of the steaks are some of my favorites, but only try the Cajun options if you like spice as they have a real great kick! Servers are always attentive and pleasant. I am so glad this place has been a neighborhood staple for many years and I hope it continues for many years more.

I went with a group of friends for a birthday. We ordered from their Saturday brunch menu. There weren't a lot of people there at the time and the atmosphere was nice. The food was just OK; The omelette, taco, and french toast weren't anything special, but the crab cake benedict was good. Overall, this place was decent; food can be slightly improved.

When seated at a table, people care to talk. And not have to scream at their dinner companions to be heard. There does not need to be obnoxious, loud, non-discernable "music". Keep it in the bar. And not in the THREE dining rooms. Food is good and plentiful. And service is above average. Add flavor to your calamari which has none. LOVE your tuna wrap, but try a whole wheat, spinach or tomato wrap (not white flour, which I left on the side of the plate).

Absolutely the WORST service ever. 2+ hours for lunch. Food took forever. Terrible excuses. No discounts for how awful it was except for a plate of dessert that no one ate and the check was wrong. This place just couldn't get it right that day.

I have frequented Bourbon Street many times for a variety of occasions (N Y Eve or Holiday time) and casual dinners or weekend brunch. Love the variety of the menu and the bar drinks are done right. The revamped rooftop makes this place more enticing. My only comment comes down to consistency of the food and the service. It is very hit or miss on both fronts. The things they get right generally are brunch, Cajun flavors and burgers. I've gotten food where while on the same plate, the temperature of the items are inconsistent (ie, fried mac and cheese, hot on the outside, cold on the inside). Service is case to case. If you have a large group, one server is fine but offer more "support staff" to help the server with clearing dishes or refreshing drinks.

Overall, a great place to dine and hang out. Excellent music and comfortable seating arrangements...great space for parties!

My friends and I wanted to try someplace new for our annual birthday outing. We made the 1:45pm reservation and checked the rooftop for seating. Only after being seated did we see a sign that read two hour limits at the table (we were planning to eat and drink for about five hours). We went downstairs and had our meal (great service his name escapes me) then returned to the rooftop for drinks. We asked Jackie if there was anywhere we could sit and drink for more than 2 hours we were told take the seating on the side of the rooftop this was at 2:45pm. There was another slightly more mature lady there who spoke to us and explained the set up; she was pleasant and helpful. We sat down and were served water, after 6 mins of no follow up or menu provided we moved to seating next to the door also in the outside sitting area. We were then told that there was a party coming in at four and we would need to move from all of the outside sitting area (not even two hours later); in addition there was a sign posted stating to sit in the area is a $50 minimum per person. After 15 minutes of not being served we walk over to an open tables to sit down. Jackie I feel wasn't helpful throughout this entire time then told us we needed to get up because she's giving the table to a couple that just came in. At that point we decided not to waste our time spending another dime at this venue. What started out as a nice meal turned into a very dismissive and uncomfortable experience. We were ignored and embarrassed. I wouldn't go back here or recommend it to my friends.

I must say, the service at Bourbon Street was superb. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by a friendly hostess and then served by a wonderful waitress. I wish I remembered her name! There were plenty choices on the menu to satisfy everyone's palette. The food was tasty but could have been a bit warmer. I recommend the Hurricane for a mixed drink. Overall, a great experience!
