This was our first visit and we how to have the opportunity to go back. We both had the shrimp and grits and it was excellent. The live band we great and they offered seating on how loud you liked the music. Definitely worth the stop when in NOLA!

Love this place. This is one of my go-to spots in New Orleans and I've never been disappointed. The food consistently tastes great. I got the shrimp & grits this trip & it was perfect. The creme brûlée for dessert finished off the great meal!

The service was great and the wait staff was so much fun and nice. We had a group of 28 people over the Mardi Gras weekend and they were so busy but handled us so well. We used to go to the House of Blues for this yearly luncheon but we are going to stick with Crescent City Brewhouse because the experience was so nice.

Had the beer sampler. Awesome! My husband had a dozen oysters and be loved them. I got the baked shrimp which were delicious and came with perfectly cooked little potatoes and a pretty side salad.
Our waitress was super nice and laid back.

We were very happy to get a reservation for 11 people for dinner. The restaurant is fun and the menu has something for everyone. I had the duck and it was really good! The beer options are also great and our server was very accommodating even when we told her at the last minute that we needed separate checks.

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.

 (Houston)·Dined on December 31, 2017

We came here on New Year's Eve and honestly, I was a little disappointed with the food. Granted it was extremely busy due to the holiday. We ordered the crocodile which was really delicious, but for my main, I ordered a BLT. The bacon was burnt (black and charred) and there was a really random chunk (large slab) of mozzarella placed inside the sandwich which we all mistook for an egg white patty. The 'salad' that accompanied the BLT was literally 2 pieces of lettuce placed on top of another with some cheese and dressing in a cup on the side. I was really hoping for a great food experience because we had heard so many good reviews about the place. Next time I go, it will be for appies and drinks only I think.

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 December 31, 2017

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!

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.

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 8, 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.
