I’ve been to Mr. B’s a couple times before. It is a MUST every time I’m back in town. BBQ shrimp..so ridiculously good. I started with the fried oyster appetizer which was very good. Ask for Clearance when you go. Very nice and good server👍🏻

Husband and I went while on vacation from Philly. The food was delightful and was exactly what you’d expect from such an establishment however the service from J.C. was exactly what we didn’t expect. The entire vacation we felt like tourists, rushed to eat, pay and leave every other place we ate. But J.C. … really went out of his way to make us feel like locals and it did not go unnoticed. Thank you for such an amazing evening. We will sure be back to visit the other establishments of the Brennan family.

Pork belly was amazing. BBQ shrimp was so juicy and flavorful. The crab cakes were the best in the world.

Nice atmosphere. Gumbo YaYa was good but not as exciting as Beyond Bourbon St podcast made it sound.

We enjoyed ourselves! Our waiter just happened to have two large tables so our little table of two was a slightly forgotten at times. We watched others seated after us have their entire meal before our entree arrived. Otherwise, it was delicious!

This was such a great location to go solo or with a group for a great meal (shrimp & grits are hands down the best thing I've ever had in a very long time).

I had the shrimp and grits which were very rich and very good. I paired that with a MrBs salad that was seasoned and dressed just right. My wife had the red snapper which she thought was very good as well.

Made a reservation for my elderly mother’s birthday. Received a text the next day asking me to confirm my reservation. I confirmed it. Went all the way down there, paid for parking, walked to the restaurant, got there and it wasn’t even open. It was so disappointing. We’ve been going to Mr. B’s for special occasions since I was a child.

Some of the worst food I have ever had. Both my fiancé and I could not eat our entrees. Everything tasted like it was soaked in soy sauce. Our server was excellent, however, and took very good care of us. With all of the amazing restaurants in NOLA, I expected more for the price point.
