The Gumbo Ya Ya was a delight. Bacon Wrapped Shrimp and Grits was Amazing. Highly recommend and was suggested by our server JC. He was absolutely the best. Finish it off with the Pecan Pie and you CANNOT fo wrong. Thanks for a great meal. See you next time we're in town.

The food was out of this world. The gumbo yaya was off the mark, but everything else was excellent. The service was extremely good. All of desserts were great. We were celebrating my father's birthday, and they made very memorable. Overall, excellent experience.

I have visited Mr. B's several times over the past few years and it always delights. It is a great destination for high quality, genuine Nola cuisine for a reasonable price. On this visit I enjoyed jerk-rubbed pork (ok, not genuine NOLA) and cheese grits. The service was attentive and professional and the bill did not break the bank. I enthusiastically recommend Mister B's for an authentic NOLA experience.

Had grilled red fish and it was very well done. The garlic fries appetizer was the best. Double fried, I think. Green beans were a little too al dente for me, but the popcorn rice/almonds was very good. Ended with homemade butter pecan ice cream which was perfect. Best dinner of the week in NO.

Overall great experience! We went for an early dinner with our 4 and 6 year old and the restaurant was so hospitable even giving the kids coloring pages and crayons. The fresh fish hit the spot and my husband enjoyed the BBQ shrimp. You must try the amazing pecan pie!

What a disappointment. The food was good — definitely not great — but it was brought out so quickly that it’s clearly not made to order. The overall service was inattentive. Water was never refilled, Bread was taken away even though we had ordered additional dishes finding ourselves hungry after the meal. We decided to cancel our reservation for the following night at one of the partner restaurants after this underwhelming experience.

Mister B's is a landmark restaurant in New Orleans. We go there specifically for the barbecued shrimp. Delicious! The creme brulee was also top notch. The service was, as usual, impeccable. Josh, Renata and Ted were personable and efficient.
If you find yourself in New Orleans, you should try Mister B's!

I LOVE Mr. B's, it is consistent with cuisine as well as service! Every time I get to NO, they are top of my list to dine. My favorites are the BBQ Shrimp and Gumbo YaYa, which is a chicken and andouille gumbo. Always on point!

Shrimp & grits are always on POINT! Plus the Signature Bloody Mary drinks were only $1.50. How could I be disappointed. I also order the Salty Dog. Dean accommodated my request and turned it into the Sweet Dog. Thanks for never letting me down Mr. B’s Bistro. Oh, last but not least, the fried crawfish salad was phenomenal.
