Geen wachtrij. Vol maar niet te vol. Aardige ober maar hij maakt te veel uren, hij was al 10 uur aan het werk. Eten was prima maar de wings heb ik beter gegeten en risotto vonden we beide droger dan we van risotto gewend zijn.

Redfish not good. Dry, harder Han it should be, must have been older or frozen or both

A very nice lunch experience. Lunch for two ran us ($80) for beer, tea, gumbo, oyster club, salad, seafood cheesecake, and a cheesecake for dessert). The gumbo was OK, the club was very good, my wife like the seafood cheesecake, and the cheesecake for dessert was outstanding. I would return knowing it was a $40 lunch per person.

Had reservations for 12 people. Arrived to restaurant and was seated at a 10 person table. Waiter begrudgingly pulled up 2 more chairs. When we asked if we could possibly add one more table he rudely said ‘No!’ So 12 adults sat at three 4 top tables with 12 chairs while four 4 top tables set with 12 chairs sat empty behind us..waiter was extremely rude throughout meal. For a larger party 18% gratuity was already added despite us having such poor service. 15% is understandable but 18% is absolutely ridiculous when our waiter is rude. Food was mediocre at best. Way over priced and portions were tiny. Would not recommend and will not be returning.

Great service and the beers were pretty good. Food was only ok. I added shrimp to my salad for an extra $4 and it came with 3 small shrimp which according to our waitress was standard. Disappointing food but good location and good service.

We have been here a couple of times in the past and liked the food. This time around, the three of us couldn't say anything good about each of our separate entrees that we ordered. The only saving grace was the order of oysters on the half shell.

The food was fantastic, but a bit pricey for the portion sizes offered (reminded me a bit more of an upscale dining location, as opposed to a microbrewery). Luckily the NOLA Visitor’s Guide had a BOGO coupon to use, so the overall price paid was great. The ambiance was perfection with jazz playing at the front of the restaurant (next to the street) so the sound was at a perfect level to have a conversation with your dining companions without having to speak above a normal level. Will definitely go back if ever in the area again!

Excellent food! We had shrimp and the Brown Sugar Glazed ribs. Both were delicious. Service was fast and friendly and ambiance was great. The only negative was despite having reservations for over a month, we were not “checked in” to our Open Table reservation despite my telling them that and the hostess verifying the reservation. We were given a table by the door on the aisle despite their being many empty (and better) tables. We did ask to move, which we were.

We will be back!

Food and service were good. Like many restaurants in the French Quarter, they leave their doors wide open, which means it can get hot in there. Request a table under a fan if you don't like sweating.

This is the best restaurant in New Orleans and I’m SHOCKED more people don’t talk about it. The ribs were definitely the best ribs I’ve ever had in my entire life. Do not pass over this place!

Never been to a microbrew in my life that you do not get to select your flight. We were sat by the service station in an empty restaurant.

The menu was pretty varied, we ordered the oyster appetizer which was quite good, however the alligator tidbits came in a sauce that was overwhelmed by a dill flavor. Best to order with the sauce on the side.
Main course of shrimp stuffed with crabmeat was delicious and filling. The strawberry shortcake was a bit dry.
Be warned - no decaffeinated coffee available, but they use a Keurig to make the coffee so if you really have a need, bring your own pods.

Came in just before 2 large groups of 30 each! They had fixed menus.
So service a little slow...food took awhile...but attentive. I had tagliatelle with mushroom ragout, she had the grilled redfish evangeline and both had fried alligator bites as appetizer. Food was okay...too salty (possibly from seasoning) and small portions (for the price paid). More alligator bites at Creole House and Coterie (very good portions). Skipped the bread pudding cuz saw (like last time) it was small & heavy/dense. The best bread pudding so far was also at Coterie!

Service was excellent. Server was attentive and his suggestions were on point. Food took a little time to come out but was worth the wait. Drinks also took a little bit of time. But their craft beers were excellent. The ambiance was just right.... originally sat in courtyard but was too windy... hostess was more than accommodating to move us inside. Manager was on floor and touched every table and was very friendly and attentive to everyone's needs....the busboy was attentive and helped prebus tables. Very clean as well.
