Waitstaff were great. We were in New Orleans and eating as a group. They had a mix of regular food items and New Orleans favorites. Beer selection was great. I loved all 6 beers on the sampler even ones I don't normally like. Right near the riverwalk in the french quarter. Ambiance is great but building feels newer compared to historic feel of other restaurants in the french quarter.

Need to carry bud light for those that don’t drink craft beers. Other than that, very good place to eat.

The bridal party next to us was obnoxious, lewd, rowdy, and loud. I finally requested that our party be moved to a different table, which they honored. We were not able to even have a conversation before the move. So not a good start, but improved with the move.

It was a really cute place with great prices and the wait staff was excellent. Its a mixture of pub food and nola specialties.

Ate here a few evenings ago. Just two of us at a high-top near the bar. Admittedly, the setting is really interesting. The bar is awesome, and the place has a nice vibe. We purchased the 6-beer sampler, which included the seasonal. The beers were generally fine, each more-or-less true to its style. Nothing notable, but all pretty well crafted. The food was just ok. More than anything, the food was served cold, and the server was completely indifferent to us-- to the point of rude. I get that this place is really busy; and perhaps the staff is overworked. But it's not as if we got a discount for that. We paid full price, and we would have liked competent, professional, and friendly service. We got none of that. As a caveat, let me say this: If you love the NoLa waterfront; if you enjoy the area where the French Quarter begins to transition into the French Market area, then you'll probably dig Crescent City Brewhouse. I personally think NoLa is kind of a dump; and this place didn't do anything to improve my impression. So again, if you really like NoLa and are fine to sub-par service, descent beer, and cold food, then you may really like Crescent City Brew.

The food and the service were fine. The beer selection was bland. That day I visited three other brewpubs, and their beers all exceed the Crescent City selection by a wide margin. If you improve the beer list, your visitation rates will improve.

Sit on the upper level patio if you can! Great view where you can people watch and see the steamboats. The Oyster Club sandwich was great! Also loved the Sangria! Great variety of menu items, there’s really something for everyone! Can’t wait to come back here!

Booked an Easter reservation so I could eat some awesome food while I waited for the annual Chris Owens easter Parade. Awesome food, service, no pressure to eat-and-leave, got to watch the parade and take some great photos. Highly recommend the Crescent City Brewhouse to locals and tourists. You can’t go wrong here, try the Seafood Cheesecake and Shrimp and Grits, my two favorites! And, if it’s a nice day, sit outside on the balcony under the umbrellas!

We were entertaining guests from out of town and chose the Brewhouse for their Cajun cuisine. Good overall! Waitress seemed a little short with us and the food took a while to come out. We sat on the balcony which was too loud to be able to hear the band inside.

The alligator and pork sausage was good but the shrimp po’boy was only so so. When I asked for cocktail sauce they brought me about a tablespoon or so and said that was all they had! Surprising in a restaurant offering a lot of seafood dishes. Overpriced for the quality of the food. But the beer was really good.

We were first time diners. We brought our 8 year old child after researching kid-friendly restaurants in the area. We were able to walk-in 15 mins before our reservation and be seated right away, which was nice. Our server was amazing. She was very knowledgeable of the food and drink menus. She made wonderful cocktail suggestions for my husband. We started with the Brie appetizer and it was wonderful. My husband ordered a fish entree (I don’t remember which one) and I had the Shrimp and Grits. Both items were well flavored and the portions were just right. We finished with Bread Pudding for dessert and this item was the only thing I did not really care for. It was not heated all the way through and there was really nothing overly special about it. Overall we enjoyed our experience and would dine here again. I agree with the reviews that this restaurant is very kid friendly. We also enjoyed the live music.

The play we were attending before dinner was later then we expected so we arrived 30 minutes late nearly at closing time. The restaurant staff was gracious and seated and served us anyway. The food, beer, and service was great, as always. We have been customers of this restaurant for many years and would recommend it to anyone visiting N.O.

Had reservations and came early for a drink. They have their own brew which was very good. Our table had oysters, baked brie and fried gator for appetizers, all good. Shrimp and grits, ribs and the gator Po-boy were all also very good. Topped it off with deserts.
