My family & I, which includes my husband & our 12 and 18 year old, were on vacation in New Orleans, looking for a place to eat close by the Audubon Aquarium near the river. We were out of the aquarium 2 hrs earlier than we expected and milled around in 90+ degree heat while waiting for our reservation time. Eventually I moved the reservation to 4:45pm. The staff were welcoming, atmosphere very nice. THE FOOD. WAS. AMAZING. Exactly what we needed for our last night in New Orleans. HIGHLY recommend! Next time we’ll try to get there later for the live music!

Overall a great experience! The food was decently price and everything was in my husbands own words, “delightful”. We’d most likely dine here again! The brews are by far the best drink options they offer. Our cocktails came out a little different than we are used to but the food was delicious! Definitely order the truffle fries and the gator bites! We had the risotto and a trio that they were offering.

this place has something for everyone. From thoughtful, finely crafted meals, fo trademark quality brew itll definitely be a go-to spot anytime im here. And the service is the icing on the cake, or should I say, "the rum sauce on the bread pudding!" (trust me, get it) Neshawn is the kind of server who transforms it all from a meal to an experience. All of the staff is warm and fast. I love it here ♡

Amazing food! I made a reservation day of for a large party and then had an issue and needed to cancel it because of a timing conflict. It didn't say anywhere online that they would charge me $10 per guest to cancel, however the host told me I would have to pay to remove my reservation I made a couple hours earlier ( i did put down a card to make reservation). I was able to adjust a few things and the host found us a later slot that worked. She was very helpful, our server was amazing and the food was fantastic! I only wish they had communicated the fee clearer prior to our booking.

Food was very good, and service was great! My husband loved the red fish, and we both thought the boudin balls were some of the best!

Beer was a 5 for sure. If you just want to go for beers - great choice. But food was “meh” at best. Nothing special.

Not great. Server definitely didn’t have knowledge of the food she was serving or drinks available. It wasn’t a great choice, New Orleans has so much to offer and in the future I wouldn’t waste a meal or time coming here again.

We were late on booking reservations for lunch and needed to get out of the elements from a passing humidity storm... Crescent City Brewhouse was the closet place that had a reservation available and it was ok... Got seated fast and from there it was just ok... Food was average and service was below average... The restaurant had a really nice vibe and had live music for lunch...

The service was great!! We had the Redfish and the wings, it was good but compared to Curio, it was not anything to write home about. The beer was delicious and the explanation from our waitress on the flight was excellent. Definitely try the strawberry shortcake!

I had the Weiss beer and it was delicious, wish there was a way I could take some back to NC. We had the shrimp poboy it had bread, shrimp lettuce and tomato, but no sauce, this was very interesting considering I have had Shrimp poboy twice since I have been in New Orleans and this one was way different, not bad just plain. We also had the gumbo which was more like soup, again not bad just different.

First time dining here. Vacationing at New Orleans. Great choice. We dined late and chose to sit outside and it was really nice. We ended up being the only party out there so it was nice and romantic. I ordered the redfish, green beans and potatoes and it was delicious. First time eating redfish and I am a fan! Definitely recommend.

Service was good and food was ok. Our server had two other larger parties and us. One of the parties was complaining about everything and sucked up a lot of her time. We were taken care as quickly as she could get to us. I had the NO trio. Shrimp and grits were good as was the jambalaya, the red beans and rice were not as flavorful as I expected. My SO had the shrimp and grits. He loved it! The beers are pretty tasty.

I ordered the crab cake entree. From the description it should have been a meal, I only got the two crab cakes with a bit arugula thrown on top. The waiter used the word no for almost every request. It was the worst dining experience of our vacation!

Our waitress was AMAZING! We had a terrible day, waiting for hours at other restaurants so by the time we found City Brewhouse we were ALL HANGRY, and the team at City Brewhouse could not have been more accommodating, totally turning around our last day in New Orleans. Food was great, live band, fun atmosphere :) THANK YOU! :) :) :)
