Even during covid and social distancing, Mr. B’s was incredible as always. We missed not seeing the jazz trio for Sunday Brunch and can’t wait for their return when it’s safer. Ken and Doug did a fantastic job serving and they were both very entertaining. Mr. B’s is hands down my favorite go to restaurant.

Exceptional service! I took my husband for his birthday and Mr.B’s had our table decorated with a birthday banner and balloon! The bbq shrimp was absolutely every bit as delicious as the reviews say! The bread pudding was the best I’ve ever had ... and I’ve had A LOT of bread pudding! Mr. B’s is our new favorite place to dine!

Always great food and great service! Started off with the gumbo, then fish of the day with green beans and potatoes. Then finished it off with a slice of pecan pie and a cup of coffee.

As usual... an amazing experience. Appreciate all the covid precautions. Tables were at least 10 feet apart(maybe even 12 feet for some tables). The wait staff maintained their masks the entire time. Plenty of hand dispensers for customer use.

Shout out to Terrence, Devon and Ron for not only providing excellent, safe service but also quite entertaining.

Although the menu decreased some, I’m not sure what was missing bc all my favorites were there. And the food quality was excellent as usual.

Plan to be back soon.

Went for Father's Day brunch shortly after reopening from quarantine. All of the staff wore masks. Hand sanitizer available.

Food was OUTSTANDING! Gumbo YaYa and the crab cakes were the faves.
Drinks were OUTSTANDING! Pimm's Cup was so refreshing
Service was PERFECT.

Restaurant was probably 25% full - very quiet. Hope more people start to venture out - safely - and support our fabulous restaurants.

I have been there several times and I always stick with the shrimp and grits because it is my favorite and has always been great. This time two of us got the shrimp and grits and it was served luke warm at best. The bacon wrapped shrimp was dry and overcooked. My wife had the filet which she ordered medium rare and it was burnt on the outside. My friends wife had the BBQ shrimp and they were overcooked. Needless to say I was extremely disappointed in the food, which was a big surprise, since it had been great before. I was also embarrassed because I have talked this place up to my friends and family and when I took some friends their experience was not up to the expected standards. The service was great as usual and the atmosphere was great as usual. I would recommend based off my past experiences alone. I am hoping it was an off night but for how much we spent I don't like paying for off nights.

Our first time experience was great. Food was excellent and our server Shea was fantastic. She was engaging, courteous and professional. We live in NOLA for four years and have been back many times staying across the street at the Hotel Monteleone each time, but never ate at Mr. B's. Wish we had done so sooner.

Everything was AMAZING. The food was so so great, and food arrived promptly. We tried the Crab Cake (PLEASE GET IT), Seafood Gumbo (best I ever had), the Truffle Steak (was undersalted and so-so), and the bread pudding (also the best bread pudding I've ever had).

Also, note this restaurant is off right in the heart of the French Quarter so make sure you Uber!

We could not have asked for a better service staff than Ken, Margaret and Ashley. We had an amazing dinner! From the appetizer of BBQ shrimp, to each of our entrees (red fish of the day, shrimp and grits and the best pork chop), to the desserts (cream puff, chocolate molten cake and pecan pie). We enjoyed every bite.

The food and service were excellent! Our family ate scallops, wedge salad, and the wood fire grilled redfish. Excellent dishes...next time I will ask that the salt be left off the side of arugula that came with the scallops.
