What a special evening at Mr. B'S! Our waiter was very helpful and took good care of us. Cudos to the chef for great food; their super, not-too- spicy shrimp in a yummy butter sauce, served with plenty of sopping bread, delicious salad with fresh romaine, and our Main was duck breast prepared perfectly, which included veggies. The bread pudding was a special treat which we could not finish. Thank you Mr. B's. We shall return.

This is a decent place but nothing outstanding. The gumbo yaya has a bitter taste that we did not like. Shrimp was okay but some taste not fresh. Crab cake was on the saltier side. Bread pudding is overly too sweet.

Been there many times, but this was the first time since Covid. Felt safe and adequately spaces. Must show proof of vaccination to enter.
Everything was excellent, reasonable prices for what you get.

Brett and JC took great care of us! The gumbo yaya, the duck spring rolls, the barbecue shrimp and the gulf fish were fantastic! The pecan pie for dessert was delicious. The bar drinks were very special.

Mr. B’s is one of our favorite places in NOLA. The food is always authentically Nee Orleans and delicious- especially the BBQ shrimp and the bread that is to die for. Discovered a new favorite drink - the blood orange margarita. The service is 2nd to none.

We had such a great time at Mr. B’s bistro. They have some of the best gumbo and barbecued shrimp in New Orleans. Christina and Karen were outstanding servers and made our visit so pleasant.

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.

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!
