A STORIED HISTORY OF NEW ORLEANS STEWARDS AND STORYTELLERS
Longway is a tavern that still views New Orleans’ French Quarter as a neighborhood. We are a third place for everyone living, working, and playing in the French Quarter-a casual spot with an open-air courtyard where you can grab a bite and a beer before heading off to other destinations, have dinner, or to savor a nightcap when the party is winding down. Our menu offers creative twists on nostalgic tavern fare, while Liam Deegan’s cocktails give the same treatment to the French Quarter classics that we all grew up drinking.

Living Uptown, we don't make it into the Quarter all that often and when we do, we're always looking for places with good drinks and good food that aren't too touristy or too formal. Longway fits the bill on all counts and it's right between Bourbon and Royal. I am also personally pleased to see that they have great desserts (seriously, too many places make magnificent starters and entrees but then phone it in with a lackluster bread pudding, crème brulée and ice cream).

Everything was amazing. The bartender recommended great cocktails and the ambience was beautiful. My favorite thing I ate was the watermelon salad. I hate watermelon and cucumber, but this made me second guess that. Loved it all!

Fried squash, and butter chicken. Both very good. The waitress was friendly and accommodating. Drinks were made well and priced right. Would recommend and would go back.

We were recommended this place by a couple people. We saw our server once and that was it. There is definitely way better food in New Orleans.

One of my favorite new comers to the French Quarter, serving late night shared plates, with a full bar. Come for a small intimate meal, or get their "one of everything" (a steal at $199), for a large party. Expect a gorgeous, yet unpretentious space, welcoming, knowledgeable staff and outstanding food and cocktails that never disappoint!

Perfect place to grab a bite in the French Quarter. The outside patio is beautiful! We had the roasted squash as a starter, its a must have. We also had the chop salad and the fried calamari which were both excellent portions for shared plates. Service was outstanding. Longway Tavern is a fun, casual place with great food, we'll be back.

Everything we had was phenomenal. And we literally had everything. Alex and the entire serving staff were on point. We sat in the courtyard and it was a perfectly magical evening. Can’t wait to return!

Our best meal on a recent trip to NOLA! Try the pina colada with rum and green chartreuse. We had a bunch of veggie dishes... they happily accommodate vegetarians: creamed peas with crispy panko, chopped salad (soooo good), radishes with butter and salt, and a side of amazing grilled bread, fried acorn squash with a Korean spice breading and homemade ranch. Every bite was more delicious than the last. Our server Allison was amazing and every person we interacted with was delightful and helpful. Beautiful patio. You can buy a 6er for the kitchen staff for $6 (menu item), which obv we did. They kindly reciprocated with a gift from the kitchen: Fried potatoes with creme Fraiche. Perfectly cooked and so sweet. I want to come back to NOLA just to eat here again!

We went for my partner's birthday, and it was everything we hoped for and more. Great food. Large but manageable and shareable portions. GREAT ATMOSPHERE - we ate out back in the courtyard, and it was the perfect setting for a date dinner. She loved it. Definitely lived up to its reputation and hype. We will return.

The food and drinks are amazing. We were visiting for Spring break and ended up eating there 2 times. Did I say the food was amazing?? The wait staff was friendly, helpful and answered any questions we had about the menu. If you go be sure to check out the happy hour. Will be making the 8 hour trip just to come back to this great place. ❤️❤️❤️
