They’ve really made the most out of their pool space for outdoor seating. It was a hot day and I had to keep myself from diving in but I’m glad they took responsibility early on in covid and shut down the pool. The Bloody Mary brought me back to life and I had leftovers for a whole other meal.

When we arrived we were so excited but slowly things went south. We had someone with dietary restrictions and the server didn’t take it seriously and made a joke about it and said “this is New Orleans” when the day prior we went to 2 different places that both had items on the menu to accommodate the diet. When our food arrived, the diet restriction was not noted and the food had to be sent back. The bride of our party did not get her food until 30 minutes AFTER ours was delivered with no explanation from our server. Lastly, the shrimp and grits and wood in it — most likely from toothpicks, but that could’ve been dangerous. The server did not tell the manager until after we had said something to the manager ourselves. She was amazing and so nice and apologized for everything but the whole thing should’ve been handled differently.
The aesthetic of the building is amazing, beautiful, so full of character and the drinks were fabulous! Overall, I think it’s a great place just lack of communication and rude employees sends a big message.

The Country Club
Responded on October 6, 2020

We are so sorry to hear you had this experience and will be following up with management and staff on it. Due to Covid we are operating with a more limited menu than normal but do have numerous vegan and vegetarian options available during dinner. Other dietary restrictions are usually no problem with notice and we sincerely apologize for how you were treated and sincerely hope we get the chance to make it up to you in the future.

I may be biased because I've loved The Country Club for a long time, but I finally took my parents to dine poolside and they immediately understood the magic of the place. The food is simple but sophisticated, the staff is always so welcoming and kind, and the place is just gorgeous. My father, who's a chef, was really impressed with the tastiness and the presentation of the food. 10/10 all the stars

What a lucky surprise! As you know our drag brunches are normally booked out months in advance so it's wonderful that you were able to get in. We try to remind people to check back a day or two prior just in case there are cancellations or new seats open up. We also have about 30 seats around the bar which are available on a first come, first serve basis a half hour prior to each show.

I read a couple of write ups in New Orleans publications on The Country Club prior to reserving. Reviews stated that the food was delicious and the "girls" were gorgeous. While both of those statements are a stretch, it was enjoyable. First, absolutely love the house that the restaurant is located in. Very quirky, yet well put together invigorating decor. We were excited from the minute we walked in. Given a lovely table and the bottomless mimosas were delicious and indeed bottomless. The food on the other hand was very meh. The guys in our party ordered the chicken and waffles. We have sampled chicken and waffles in many variations and this one was about the most lackluster we've experienced. Flavorless fried chicken on probably the toughest, driest excuse for a waffle we've ever eaten. I ordered the fried green tomatoes with egg, etc. Suffice it to say that someone got very excited with the garlic in the kitchen. I took one bite and thought maybe I had just gotten a clove or something. Had a second taste and was done. Couldn't taste anything but garlic for the duration of the meal. Eggs were cooked perfectly and I think the other flavors would have been great, but just could not surmount the mountain of garlic...and I like garlic. We ordered the boudin but never received it. They asked if we still wanted it, but we were done eating by that point so we said no. They said they would take it off the bill no problem, but lo and behold when the bill arrived, we were charged for it. Truffle mac and cheese was delicious though. The girls were entertaining and fun, but the beauty I had read about wasn't really on display. Having been to other drag shows, they weren't as refined as previous experiences and didn't really perform nearly as much in terms of dancing as I had hoped. All in all, a fun experience, but not sure I would repeat again based solely on the lackluster food. Maybe just drinks in the future.
