Seafood
“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 half-shell 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.

    Excellent food. The steak was slightly overdone, but still very flavorful. Our server was very attentive. The bourbon milk punch for dessert was incredible!!!

    Very disappointed in the food at the Bourbon House. The quality for the price was terrible. The menu was very small. We’ve eaten there before and the quality was much better than it is not. Probably won’t return.

    Hostess was great, service ok. Food is below average and ridiculously expensive. There are dozens of better options- the night before we went to the very casual Creole House and Oyster Bar and food was three times as good for half as much. Bourbon House is a huge ripoff.

    It was my first time trying seafood gumbo! It was good, although it was a bit short on seafood. (Plenty of sausage!) Nice decor, food came quickly, and our waiter was nice.

    Atmosphere was very touristy, like a Hard Rock Cafe. Bourbon list was so-so. The food actually was surprisingly pretty good though. The service was just ok.

    Great evening. As it is on bourbon st., it is louder than a restaurant of simian at quality would be elsewhere, but tolerable. Excellent service from Nickie. Food food excellent bourbon for a fantastic price.

    I was excited about this place because of reviews but was not impressed with food. I had corn and crab soup with no taste, didn’t know I can come to NOLA and have to season food, I had the seafood platter also not seasoned. The best thing was the Bourbon rum punch!

    Our server Jeremiah was amazing he made our first visit to the restaurant worth while we traveled here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and fathers day as a group of 8 during our visit we had the charbroiled oysters by far some of the best I've ever had also tried the sausage and shrimp gumbo it was OK flavor wise but not what I would consider gumbo. Also had the gator wings ok also not spectacular everyone at the table ordered a different entrée everything was standard nothing really amazing nice restaurant overall a nice experience

    Great atmosphere, menu somewhat limit for gluten allergy. Food was very good. Several of the bourbons I wanted to try were not available, but there were plenty to choose from. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and bourbons, very refreshing the depth of her knowledge. I would recommend to anyone look for a more up scale place to have a meal.

    Me and my fiancé came from out of town and had been told this was a great restaurant. The food was not anything special. Our waitress was awful. She didn’t check on us at all after taking our order. This was the first time I’ve ever not tipped someone. I do not recommend this place.

    Restaurant looks like it has a staff shortage and it is relevant to everything, service was ok, food was okay. The chard oysters are good and the banana’s foster cheesecake was also good. Overall, it was a one and done restaurant. Not worthy of a second visit.
