In the middle of the Manhattan Theatre District, the Bourbon Street Bar and Grill is an authentic restaurant. Reasonably priced, its a good lunch option, on a quieter street slightly away from the touristy center

Love the ambiance. Would go back.

As New Orleaneans visiting NYC, we chose this restaurant as a “Saints friendly” place to watch the Saints/Falcons game and were pleasantly surprised at the authenticity of the food flavors. We are skeptical of any place outside of Louisiana that boasts Cajun or Creole flavors, as it’s typically overly spicy and tasteless. But Bourbon Street Bar & Grille got it right. Authentic creole flavors with just the right amount of kick. And the decor is lovely. Captures the spirit of the French Quarter without going too far.

The burgers were great. Unfortunately we had a table next to the entrance which made it a bit uncomfortable but overall it was great.
The only thing we didn‘t like, was the permanent television and sports tv everyboday was constantly starting at.
I expect this for a sports bar but not for this restaurant.

Our family visit to New York was filled with sightseeing, shows and an eclectic list of dining adventures. Luckily, we hit Bourbon St. on our first night since we got in late and it was close to our hotel. The food was fantastic and portions were huge. Hush puppies were to die for! This is a find in NY as other restaurants we went to had minuscule portions that were outrageously priced. Of course you want to experience top rated and much talked about scenes, but after one such “chic” place we left with a huge dent in our wallet and our tummies were not even close to full. For example, a single taquito cut into 4 pieces with some kind of cranberry sauce that cost $28. Guess it’s food art, right? It was recommended we purchase 8 similarly priced and sized “tapas” for our great dining experience. Being as we had our 22 and 24 yr old sons with us, we didn’t order much more and went back to Bourbon for a satisfying great meal that filled us up. Highly recommend.

This is basically a large party space. All the tables are high-top (not a low table in sight - at least not on the first floor.) There are at least 2 floors of dining space, and 2 bars just on the first floor. While the food is Cajun influenced, it's pretty much bar food. If I were throwing a party this would be the place. For a pre-theatre dinner, it met the requirement of being quick, but I wouldn't bother to go back. I had the gumbo, which was hearty and flavorful, but nothing novel. My husband had the catfish sliders and his comment was "they were ok." Great service, however.

We ordered calamari, shrimp poboys, mini cheeseburger sliders & Cajun jambalaya. The appetizer came out hot & quickly. The cornmeal coating was pretty good & could have used a little more kick in seasoning. The bread for the poboys was soft & tasty. The decor was festive & the service was excellent. Also the bathrooms were clean.

I went here on 11/18/17 for my birthday. Overall, I was very satisfied. I made the reservation two days earlier and called to inform that I was running late. When I arrived they were already clearing off our table and did not take long to set for us. I like that they have an unending happy hour, where the drinks were very affordable, as low as $5(I tried the swamp water and hurricane drinks, very good!!!). I had a really good and attentive host. I will definitely come back her again.
