It was our anniversary trip to New Orleans, so the whole thing was incredible. But the service and the small bites we got here sent us over the top! Do not miss the pork skins, or the crab beignets and bisque. Fried green tomatoes were great too! Their bartenders were attentive and good, and made very lovely suggestions! Their prices are very reasonable even though you get big price tag service and ambiance. Will be back. It’s extremely photographable, so cute!

One of eh most fun and quirky places I've been too. The setting is beautiful, sleek, chic and welcoming; the staff is terrific seemingly genuinely enjoying themselves and having guests join them for drinks and/or a meal. Now the food: truly delicious. Husband and I shared several small plates, tapas-style and each was a delight in creativity, taste, presentation and zing. Absolutely worth the visit.

Loved our bartender, Tim! He made great cocktails and is very personable. He elevated the experience overall. The food is consistent and delicious. Fried green tomatoes, truffle Mac and cheese, pork cracklings, fried oysters, sesame cauliflower...you can’t go wrong! This is a must when visiting the Bywater.

Pros:
Excellent service from Kyle at lunch👍
Brandy milk punch 👍
Brussels sprouts 👍
Mac & cheese 👍

The corn and crab bisque had wonderful flavor, however it was very salty, and my companion could not eat it. They were kind enough to take it off the bill.

Overall a great experience ; I’ll be back!

The door man attempted to refuse service to me since I didn’t have an I.D. to prove that I was +21 YO. Funny that they allowed the other 3 in my party to enter the restaurant. The security guard attempted to emasculate me in his attempt to determine my age...which is 60. The food was average to poor.

The Country Club
Responded on May 8, 2021

We are very sorry to hear this! Everyone must have a valid ID to enter regardless of age. Unfortunately, this is a regulation we can not get around as it could cost us our license. Even still, I'm sorry to hear that your experience with security was so unpleasant. Please send us more details so we can look into it further. We encourage anyone with any difficulties to please ask for a manager on duty so we have a chance to resolve issues while they are happening.

Poor experience. Food was not very good and everything was fried. The service was very slow and the drinks were terrible not to mention the extremely limited drink menu they offered.

The Country Club
Responded on April 27, 2021

We are sorry to hear about your experience and wish you would have asked for management so we could have made it right for you at the time. We are confused by your review as the majority of our food is not fried and we have a full bar with over 100 wines, 35 beers, numerous specialty cocktails, and our bartenders can make just about any drink requested. We apologize if this was not communicated to you or if your service was slow, and we hope we get the chance to make it up to you in the future.
