Excellent experience. The service was excellent as was the food. Creative, tasty dishes. Recommend the seafood cheesecake and the wings. Good mix of NO standards and new items. Good beer as well.

The food was wonderful. However, our server was terrible. He would barely speak and would shake our plates at us when he brought our food and drink. He was very rude and I was unhappy that we were made to leave an 18% tip for him bc we had 7 people in our group.

We ate here Sugar Bowl day, our table was ready, our server was excellent and food arrived quickly was very good and everything hot! It was a fun & festive place to be. I thought the cost for feeding 7 guys plus me was excellent. Will definitely go back!

Will not be returning to this brewery for beer or food. Granted, we had reservations at 8pm on NYE, but took an hour for us to be seated. The beer is rather sub-par and the waitress and wait time between ordering was terrible.

 (Birmingham)·Dined on January 1, 2018

Don’t let the word “Brewhouse” fool you, they have 6 types of beer on tap. I have more selection at my local pizza place. Made reservations a month in advance and had to wait 30 minutes for my table. Host was too worried about fitting people in that had no reservations in between those of us that did. Food was good but took forever. Not worth the time and wait. Recommend going to almost any other dive bar in the location for better service just as good of food and less wait.

Celebrated New Years Eve there - Jay took great care of us, even with a party of 12. Food was delicious and the in-house-brewed beer selection was awesome. One of the burgers Cafe out overdone and Jay quickly replaced it, no questions asked. An overall great experience!

What a great find! While it may be a Brewhouse, the quality and presentation of the food is more on par with a 3-4 star restaurant. The Wings are an absolute must for the appetizer and my main dish was the shrimp stuffed with crab meat! OMG, i want it again right now. It was so delicious! The restaurant is in a great location, right by the water so definitely take advantage of the patio seating upstairs to people watch and to enjoy the view. Cant wait to go back the next time I am in town!

Felt like a chain restaurant. It wasn’t very crowded but our server was not as attentive as we would have liked. We ordered a flight of beer that was pretty good. The food was also decent but we wanted to be wowed. This place just missed the mark.

We chose this place because of the brewery. We were pleased with the choices of beers available. It would have been nice for some of our friends to get a more traditional bottle beer. The food was very good. I had the crab cake and it was excellent. I don't recommend the shrimp beignets. I didn't taste any shrimp.

Had a quick lunch here while working in the area. Gumbo was good and the bowl was a reasonable amount for lunch on its own if you are not too hungry. Looks like it would be a good bar for after dinner. There is a nice space upstairs and a few tables on the balcony.

We visited the restaurant for my 40th birthday. The hostess seated us beside the serving station in the back of the restaurant. We couldn't hear the band and listened to servers discuss customers. Our server was attentive and helpful. The food was good. Oysters were excellent. Salad with shrimp was small and I was still hungry after the entree. We tried the beer sampler. The seasonal beer was out. The other 5 beers were good.

The server was great, the food was not good. The BLT was on a burnt roll, the French fries and skirt steak was served on a plate with lemon juice, the duck dish was ok. The gumbo was waterey with no sausage or meat and my husband was sick all night after the gumbo.

Had a great time eating dinner in their outdoor court yard. They sat us near the fireplace which was nice as it was a cooler evening. I got the beer sampler and all 6 brews were great examples of each of their styles. We will definitely eat here again next time we are in New Orleans.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on November 9, 2017

We had a large group for a birthday party. The server continued to up the price by suggesting add ons to each person ‘s selection. She would say, “would you like to add gumbo to that?” Etc. She would not bring a birthday cake without a special order. She did not refill water glasses but always brought drinks right away. The prices seemed to be very high for a casual place. I️ am guessing many would call this place a “tourist trap “. The worst thing was that they added 18 percent gratuity to the bill and did not give us a chance to express our annoyance with this waiter through the tip. I️ will only go back to drink the beer. That was very good.

This food was a disappointment. No one in our party of 9 likes anything that they ordered, with the exception of the boudin ball appetizer. I personally ordered a pivot and it tasted like chemicals. The fries on the side were so hard and over cooked I couldn't eat them. The drinks were terrible as well. Over all I was embarrassed for bring my friends there with the experience we all had. I am not sure if it was an off night or this is all of the time. All I will say is eat at your own risk.
