“Arguably the best oyster bar of any white tablecloth restaurant in New Orleans” per the Times Picayune, Dickie Brennan’s Bourbon House is all about local seafood. If it’s not in season, you won’t find it on the menu. Enjoy authentic New Orleans dishes and oysters on the halfshell in a lively atmosphere overlooking Bourbon Street.
Dickie Brennan and his culinary team have created an incredible menu of classic New Orleans dishes complemented by new favorites. Signature favorites include Gulf fish on the Halfshell and New Orleans style Barbeque Shrimp.
Bourbon is a central focus at the bar with 200 bourbons on the list. Bourbon House is the perfect place for a specialty cocktail or a straight pour of that hard to find small batch whiskey.

Blood mary was good and well dressed. The slaw on the oyster poor boy was sweet and over powering. The fish poor boy was bland. BBQ shrimp poor boy’s sauce was sweet and distracting. The French fries were crisp and tasty.

We visited Bourbon House for my birthday and it did not disappoint! The service was excellent, from the host to the servers. The food was top notch and I even received a complimentary slice of king cake and their signature milk punch. I would definitely recommend to everyone!

Very good waiters but the food was a bit hit or miss. Got the raw bar shrimp and they were fine, but not super flavorful and the sauces were odd. The cocktail sauce was more like tomato sauce and the aiolis weren’t much better. The house salad was similarly just fine. But the desserts and cocktails were delicious. The bourbon milk punch was transcendent and the creme brûlée was surprisingly one of the best i’ve had!

The final night in New Orleans was our finest, food wise! Bourbon House was elegant, yet comfortable, with an excellent array of food choices! For the non-fish person, lovely filets, for the fishmonger's pet, a whole fried fish, perfectly cooked , and, of course the iconic oysters. Drinks, salads and desserts were also marvelous. Our service from Kyle and Caitlan was spot on! Reservations are highly recommended!

I only ate here to get the crab fingers and they were so-so. The waiter seemed annoyed and pre-occupied. I don’t recommend. Too pricey and not worth it.
