About

Ole Saint Kitchen & Tap combines the culinary expertise of Executive Alfred Singleton with legendary New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister. Located inside the Wyndham New Orleans - French Quarter at 132 Royal Street, Ole Saint is just a few steps off historic Canal Street in the French Quarter.

Designed to capture the warm ambiance of New Orleans, the decor embraces the essence of the city while featuring the memorabilia of Deuce McAllister's career with the New Orleans Saints and Ole Miss Rebels. "I think this is the perfect place where friends can gather to watch games, or where people can relax and unwind after work, whether wearing their favorite team jersey or a suit and tie," says McAllister.

Executive Chef Alfred Singleton features Southern Coastal Cuisine, such as Gulf Fish Amandine, Pecan Wood Smoked Baby Back Ribs, and a Soft Shell Crab BLT.

So disappointed in this restaurant. We were seated quickly despite arriving late for our reservation, I tried to call to say I was late but no one answered the phone, should have took the hint and gone elsewhere.

Service was awful. Our waiter was so slow, took forever for drinks. Appetizers arrived with our meals. I noticed others leaving lots on their plates, again should have took hint and left. Food was not good. Shrimp and grits had chemical taste, waiter took forever tookreturntoaskabout food.

Do yourself a favor andnever eat here.

Awful, the only good thing about this place is the beer selection. The service was terrible and the food had no taste. The worst of it was there weren't even 20 people in the entire place and it seemed like there was a line down the block with the wait. Definitely do not recommend.

The hostess was very pleasant and welcoming. That's all I can say positive about our experience. Everything else went wrong.
We were a party of seven. First were our drink orders. Three people order sparkling water: two wanted bottled Perrier, one from the bar tap. Ten minutes later, they came out with three glasses from the tap. My beer wasn't served for 20 minutes. When we were ready to order, someone ordered one of the several oyster items on the menu but the waiter informed us they had no oysters. Really? A restaurant in the French Quarter with a half dozen oyster menu items had no oysters!
When the food came, one order was completely wrong. Someone ordered the "Sausage Assortment" (2 sausages with two bready pretzel sticks) but it came out with only one piece of sausage which looked like it had been left in the oven about an hour too long. The worst was one of us ordered the catfish. It did not come out with all the other orders. We kept asking when it was coming out and the waiter kept reassuring is out would be right out. The rest of us were all finished with our meals and we asked again. Finally it came out. When he served it, the waiter said the bill would be adjusted. When the bill came, the catfish order was doubled!
The manager came over and said that he'd give us a discount and took 20% off.
And the food quality was just edible.
What a disappointment.

This was the first restaurant I tried in New Orleans, and I was extremely glad that I did. I had the Shrimp Poboy and it was delicious. That, along with the service being great, and a great selection of local beers turned out to be an amazing experience. Will definitely look to go back the next time I'm in town.

I was shocked that our concierge recommended this to me. Although our waiter was cordial he was not attentive. It was not very clean and the food selection was very limited. Our food was bland and just overall, I was unimpressed.

The food here is alw.ays good!! The issue is the service! We've eaten here three times and every time it is always ten minutes before a server comes to our table. It is laughable since we know how bad the service is, we watch other customers try to find their server for assistance, even walking around with their wallet in their hand. They've got to figure this out! Somebody make some changes!!

Somewhat disappointing. It took the wait staff several minutes to seat us and there were plenty of tables. It was almost like they were confused. The remaining of the service was just ok and the food was average. Nothing special. Probably wouldn't recommend or return.

The food was a happy surprise. The space wasn't at all supportive of the menu. We almost left before *seeing* the menu, thinking it wasn't for us.

Nice surprise, I guess?

We enjoyed the casual feel of the restaurant as well as the food which was perfect for lunch. I have enjoyed dinner at Ole Saint before and was surprised how quiet it was for lunch as it was very "vibrant" at night. I would recommend the restaurant to friends and will return again.

we ate our Christmas Dinner here this year, and it was really great! My husband and I got the Christmas dinner; ham, turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, bread pudding, all was great! My boys ordered off the menu, and their food was also good. The service was great, and the beer menu extensive! I can't wait to go back.

I had a group of almost 40 come in on Sunday, November 8. I will admit that I was worried about not being able to get seated but Ole Saint Kitchen & Tap came through for us. Granted, we did make a reservation on OpenTable.com but the restaurant admitted that they usually didn't do this during football season. We just got lucky.

The restaurant was ready for us. They had tables set up for us and the two servers were on top of it. The server that I had basically gave everyone a number and that was how she kept tabs. For example, my husband and I were number 5. When we asked for something she said, "What's your number?" Boom, she was able to add it and kept tabs. She had not issue when she gave everyone their bills, as well. Right on!

As Randi, in the review below mentioned, breakfast ended too early! We actually had a few of my friends leave because there was no breakfast. I was told that they would have it until 11:30. I wish I had gotten the name of the person who told me this so that when the restaurant called to confirm I could have sent them, but honestly, I just assumed (bad me) that there would be no issue with breakfast.

The breakfast fiasco was disappointing. I was more embarrassed than anything because I told everyone that this would be a brunch (not lunch) based on what I was told. Once I saw that my friends were content and ordering, I was able to relax. I ordered the Crab Maison BLT. YUM! It was delicious!

I would definitely recommend this place for large parties.

If you want to catch a game & just hang at the bar for drinks, sure go ahead. I'd never eat here again nor would I recommend it due to their service (or lack of. )and low quality for food. There are far too many great places to go for food in NOLA.

We tried the place because it's connected to the Wyndham French Quarter and was convenient. The restaurant/bar looks directly onto Royal Street. The bar features a sort of grownup sports bar meets old world charm ambiance with multiple flat screens and 50 craft beers on tap. The service was excellent but the biggest surprise was the food. We had one of the best pork chops we've enjoyed since the Varanese on Frankfort Ave in Louisville. We'll come back even if we're staying elsewhere in the Quarter.

Our flight got in late on a Wednesday evening so we just popped over to Ole Saint for some beers and casual dinner after we were settled. Beer list is pretty extensive with some good local options. We had the fried pickles green bean app and it was absolutely delicious- the sauce was spicy and perfect for dipping. Burger was ok. Fries were good, too. Our server was really attentive. Royal street on this block had some seedy characters later in the evening.

After reading reviews, I thought it would be an OK spot for a quick dinner after a long drive with no wait. I know it's New Orleans, and I know it's a beer joint, but the smell was pathetic. As for the food, it was mediocre at best.The shrimp cocktail was the best item and it wasn't a great presentation. The rabbit pot pie was Ok, but I thought the sage gave it an unusual flavor not to be expected in a pot pie. My crab/blt was Ok, but extremely greasy and the fries inedible as they were soggy with grease. I expected more out of a Wyndham Hotel chain restaurant! Sorry, just telling the truth.

We made reservations for late one evening after a Ghost Tour of New Orleans, and we showed up a few minutes before our reservation time to a completely empty restaurant. The bartender who allowed us to pick our table said that he wasn't even working that night, but he was filling in since he was in the neighborhood. The waiter who ended up working our table (not the bartender) seemed overly interested in us completing our meal and getting out -- to the point of trying to remove plates before we had completed several times.

The food... hmmm... the last time I was at this restaurant (back in July), it was very good -- to the point where we ate there twice in a week. After this time, I won't be going back. The food was greasy and somewhat rushed, which was the exact opposite of the last time I was there.

While visiting during NYE, some friends and I made reservations here based soley on the large local beer selection. (brews we can't get in SD) We were impressed with the great service and the perfectly plated foods that only complimented our great beer selection.

Thank you for making our last meal of 2014 absolutley phenominal!
