    Another great dining experience at Mr. B’s. We selected a bottle of Shramsburg bubbly to accompany our meal which consisted of five dishes from the Starters section of the menu. The sparkling wine paired well with each selection including the chocolate brownie for dessert. The team of Steven, Kendrick, and Justine provided the perfect amount of service and attention without intruding on our evening. We can’t wait to return.

    I went there for the advertised Coolinary lunch. After I ordered the meal that had the bistro salad and Buster crab, they brought me the salad immediately. I was half way through the salad they came out and told me there was no more crabs and to order something else. I would have ordered the smoked chicken chicken Caesar salad, bit at that point I did not want two salads. It really messed up my lunch.

    The one BIG thing missing for Sunday brunch is the live 3 piece Jazz Band!!! Y’all advertise it on the web but don’t offer it? Confused why this has stopped happening as it is a huge draw for everyone in town looking for good food and live jazz for brunch. Please bring it back!

    The food was fantastic! The service was exceptional. We had a mobility challenged person with us and I have never seen service like Mr. Bs offered before in accommodating her needs. I was impressed that I didn’t even have to ask. The GM just said Mr X will seat you and I will escort to the handicapped entrance and to the table. I will be going back.

    Best barbecue shrimp in New Orleans- Very refined taste and better than the ones at the Home of the original barbecue shrimp. The sea food gumbo was also perfect. Service was impeccable - Request to sit at Brett’s table. You won’t be disappointed. Must go there if you are in New Orleans.

    Been there many times when I’m in town and will go back probably. It just seems like the quality of service has dropped. Not that it was bad but just didn’t have the extra attentiveness I was used to in the past. Had the bbq shrimp. Was always some of the best I’ve had in New Orleans but it just was not as good as in the past, but again it was fine. Just hold this place to a little higher standard based on past experience. I’m just going to write this one up as an off night.

    Food was delicious per Usual. Highly, highly recommended the crab cakes. We've started ordering two because they are that phenomenal. Service last night was a little lacking compared to previous visits. Our server was trying to help a new hire so she was running all over the floor. She was very nice and apologetic, but things were much slower than normal.

    We visited for my husband's B-day. We arrived early for our reservation and seated early without a wait. We were greeted fairy quickly after being seated. Water goblets and a warm French bread were served quickly. I ordered the Royal St salad and my husband order the seafood gumbo. There wasn't a long wait for our food to arrive to the table. Our waitstaff graciously provided 2 types of hot sauce for the Gumbo. For our entrees, I ordered the wood grilled fish which was delicious. My husband ordered the BBQ Shrimp which we've heard was the best in the city and frankly the reason we choose to dine at Mr. Bs. My husband tried peeling the first shrimp and it was extreme hard to peel. He tried the 2nd and still it was hard to peel. Not wanting to be disappointed he asked our waiter if anything could be done. The waiter said no problem ill bring you our another BBQ shrimp dish. Shortly after another dish arrived. He tired peeling the 1st shrimp of the 2nd dish and it was still tough to peel but a slight bit easier than the first dish. As he continued to attempt to enjoy his meal the shrimp appeared undercooked and did not come out of their sheels very easy. Really not at all causing my husband to consume part of the sheel. Disappointed with this dish my husband did not ask for a 3rd replacement and just tried to salvage what he could. Mr. Bs unexpectedly delivered my husband a complementary bread pudding dessert with a birthday candle which was very nice. Although our waiter came around after the 2nd BBQ Shrimp was brought to the table asking if the 2nd dish had improved, there was no visit from management to ask how our experience which was also disappointing. The BBQ shrimp was the underwhelming part of our experience. And dimmed our evening because my husband was so looking forward to trying Mr. Bs signature dish for the first time. And again was the whole purpose for choose to celebrate his birthday at Mr. Bs. Otherwise the rest of our evening was nice.

    Whenever we take a trip to NOLA, we make it a point to eat at Mr. B’s. Their food are high quality, delicious and full of flavor. It’s the kind of food your palate dreams of. Their service is world class excellent. Our server Dwayne was beyond amazing. His explanation of the menu was spot on and he makes you want to try everything they have. He is a gem. Mr. B’s food and service never disappoints. Once you experience their food, your palate will begin to dream about it. They are that good.

    We go to Mr B’s every time we’re in town. The shrimp and grits is the best I’ve ever had. The desserts are incredible and the cocktails are always excellent. The service is top rate. We had Dominique yesterday and she was amazing. She was attentive, very kind, and was right there any time we needed something. I highly recommend this restaurant. I bought the cookbook to try to make their recipes when I’m home. I’ve recommended Mr B’s to everyone who travels to New Orleans and they’re never disappointed. We’ll be back!

    This was my third time eating at Mr. B's, twice within the past 12 months, the prior time ~30+ years ago. The service was 5star, the cocktails were spot-on, the brunch was delicious, the ambience was comfortable and not fussy. It was an occasion to get together with friends and I look forward to my next dining experience at Mr. B's.
