    We went here for my graduation celebration dinner. The food was excellent the staff were so kind and friendly. It was loud, due to loud customers and the awesome live band. I had the IPA and it was a very smooth tasty IPA. It was family friendly, my three year old has the shrimp and fries and was happy coloring with the crayons they gave her.

    Food came out almost too quickly, obviously the food was already prepared and kept warm. The quality of the food was just ok, the jambalaya was underwhelming. But the gator bits were good! Service was great from our waiter but the hostess staff were not polite and seems disinterested.

    Out sever was awesome, but the food did not impress. Jambalaya was $29 for a little more than a scoop…it looked more like a side and was nothing special. The wedge salad didn’t have chunks of blue cheese and the dressing was very runny.

    Still as good as when a local friend took us there in 1991, but missed the catfish with pecan roux I had back then. Water service a little slow. Didn't realize our po'boys came with fries, so a couple added potato salad and mac & cheese. Might want to have and mention that po'boys come with a choice of sides.

    The beer was decent, but took a long time to come out. The apps were pretty good. But the service was terrible, and the jambalaya was super salty, and tasted like spaghettios. It cost us $200 for two people to have a mediocre dinner and two drinks each. Absolutely not worth it.

    Our group of 7 was very underwhelmed with Crescent City Brewhouse. We were seated upstairs on the balcony and that was the best part of our visit! Service was extremely slow (just to even get water refills) and our food came out hardly warm. The food is overly priced and none of us were thrilled with our lukewarm entrees. In todays era, we try to be extremely forgiving, but everything fell short. We won’t be returning.

    We had eaten in this restaurant in the past and had enjoyed the dining experience and had recommended the restaurant to others. After the renovation and reopening, we can no longer recommend this restaurant. Two orders were placed for the rib dinner at $29 each. The food should have been identical and both dinners consistent. However, one order had large meaty ribs while the other were small tiny bones with no meat. There was a tablespoon of Mac and Cheese and collard greens each that would not have fed a small child. There was no cornbread or rolls provided. Several times we asked to speak to the manager, and he refused to come over to talk to us. Please note we had the same rib dinner in the past and prior to renovations and reopening had enjoyed the same meal. The waitress agreed that the meal was not up to standards, but did nothing about it. Finally, a female employee came over and while agreeing, by looking at the bones, that the meal was inconsistent, she was extremely reluctant to do anything about it, including offering anything additional to eat. She finally asked if we wanted the small beers to be removed from the bill. Since we were not satisfied, she finally agreed to take one dinner off of the bill after we insisted. We left hungry and will never return.

    We had a part of 11. When we arrived and tried to order appetizers we were informed they had no oysters. They also had no chopped salad and several other things on the menu. Our food took forever to arrive and when it did was mediocre at best. Definitely will not go back.

    This was a last minute booking on our part, and maybe just an off night, I don't want to paint with a broad brush. But we had pretty bad experience. Shared a pretzel to start, the dough definitely needed more salt. Pretty bland, and the pickles that came with weren't great. The pimento cheese wasn't what you expect, it was like a shredded cheddar tossed with pimentos. The mustard was fine. My wife got the shrimp poboy, and it was served on a bread that was so dry and stale that it kinda turned to dust when you bit into it. The shrimp themselves were okay. Rest of the sandwich felt like an afterthought. I had the BBQ ribs. They were incredibly fatty and greasy, and the bones were broken into a lot of shards. The smothered greens tasted a bit like ash, really bitter, off-putting. I will say the mac and cheese was okay. The two beers we tried were alright. All night most of the staff were pretty dismissive or felt like they didn't want us there. For what we paid, we definitely didn't feel like we got our money's worth. The music was pretty good, some fun jazz standards. Wouldn't go again, but maybe I would say to just drop in for a beer, on your way to somewhere else.

    Overpriced tourist trap for food. The jambalaya was mostly a dried-out rice dish. Prices are high! BEWARE an unexpected “convenience charge” on the final bill. When questioned, it was explained as an add-on for paying with a charge card. Will not return.

    I appreciated that we were sat right away and they were able to accommodate our large party, we were underwhelmed at the service and the food - the server herself was amazing, just overworked. But the food was just very mediocre, I don't think anyone cleaned their plate.

    The location is great. Their brewery makes a good beer. Food was marginal at best, pretty bland, and our service was awful. Really awful. We saw our server a total of three times, to take our order, deliver our dinner (again, average food, but I were there for the beer), and deliver our check with a handheld credit card device. And, when I went to the bar to order another drink, I was told that “…since I was dining at the restaurant, I couldn’t order a drink at the bar and that I had to order it with my server…” (seriously, even when I offered to pay separately - the bartender wouldn’t even sell me a refill). Stay away, buy the beer to go.

    The food was mediocre and expensive. It took too long to be served, they forgot items from our table, music was too loud and they did not split check as requested. Location charged $2 for a slice of cheese for an $18 burger that was over cooked and had no flavor. Would not recommend to anyone.

    This place has a great location. The upper gallery has amazing views. But it was closed. We decided on a wedge (add shrimp), jambalaya and their Bavarian pretzel for my daughter. They were out of the pretzels and jambalaya. Our server was haughty and seemed annoyed with any questions. He couldn’t make a recommendation. The “add shrimp” for the salad was $6. We got three shrimp. We requested the burger medium. They murdered the poor thing. The boudin balls and gumbo were decent. The beer was tasty. The music was good. Ultimately it was a sub-par dining experience with service that clearly didn’t want to be there. On the plus side, it was also quite expensive for what we received.

    This restaurant didn't plan well for New Orleans hosting the final four. They were out of most appetizers and some beers. The food took an incredibly long time to arrive as well. The food itself was just ok. We did enjoy the jazz band at the restaurant.
