Excellent lunch in a beautiful setting with very attentive service. The Country Club is a beautiful converted residence in the Marigny with stunning hand-painted accents (a monk parrot room, a magnolia leaves & blossums room, another floral room. etc/) that are basically mural-esque effects. A very large, roomy attractive U-shaped bar in the rear with knowledgeable bar staff. Simply a delightful venue. Good date night or special event venue.

Wonderful experience and delicious food! Our qroup of 7 sampled several things off the menu and highly recommended the crab beignets, sticky cauliflower, and the parmesan oysters as appetizers. I had the chilaquiles and couldn't finish the whole thing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dishes but the roasted duck was the star of our table. Service was perfect and the ambiance was stunning! We stayed for the pool experience which deserves its own review. It's like an oasis in the city. It's clean and welcoming and will definitely return on our next visit to NEW Orleans.

Went for a Bachelorette party prior to COVID and it was a blast! The queens were so incredible and energetic. An amazing performance with a great cozy atmosphere and delicious food (albeit a little on the pricey side). Fast forward to Oct 2021 - the Queens looked a little sleepy. It was like mediocre lip synching, minimal (if any) dancing, and minimal interaction with the people in the restaurant. A far cry from my first visit. The food was still great, but the entertainment factor was lacking - especially after I was already familiar with how amazing it once was. I was a little disappointed. I think I will be trying another drag brunch next time I'm on the hunt.

Had dinner in a Monday night. The decor is beautiful, the service was friendly and professional. The food was 5 stars without being too fussy. We had the crab beniets, fried oysters, whole duck and swordfish. Finished with the flour less chocolate cake. Everything was delicious but the favorite bite of the night was the duck in the cherry au jus. It was cooked perfectly. So juicy. I also have to shout out for the Bartender's bourbon cocktail. The LA Old fashioned, the Creole Cocktail and the house Manhattan were the best we had in New Orleans. We will be back.

The food and atmosphere are incredible. Our service was terrible. I've never received such terrible service and energy from a waiter/waitress. We mentioned to her there was a problem and instead of apologizing, her attitude got worse.

The Country Club is a unique place in the rapidly gentrifying Bywater neighborhood. Known for their colorful drag brunches on weekends, it’s also a great place for a special yet casual dinner. Beautiful dining rooms, classy bar, first rate service, fair prices and flavors that just pop. Don’t miss anything with their house-made boudin and if they have the Indian-inspired corn, curry & blue crab bisque with coconut milk, get it – as pretty to look at as it is delicious to eat. Dinner reservations are a must, but it’s possible to grab a happy hour drink (with full dinner menu) in their bar as a walk-in.

Though renowned for its busy, high-energy, weekend Drag brunches, the Country Club offers a relatively quiet place to get a reasonably-priced meal during the weeknights as well. The staff is friendly and attentive, the environment is relaxing, and the food is superb. Would highly recommend this place and fully intend to return in the near future.

I attended the Drag Brunch on Sunday. The food was wonderful. The ambience was great, beautiful venue, nice bathrooms. Unfortunately the service was poor- we had to flag down our waiter to get the check, place orders, etc. Unfortunately it seemed like they were very short staffed.
Additionally- and this was perhaps the most disappointing part- the drag performances were very lack-luster. I had to assure my guests, who were attending their first drag experience, that typically the production would be more coordinated, the queen’s more polished and energetic, and the mimosas bottomless. None of those were the case so unfortunately, I give the drag brunch that’s “sold out months in advance”, a poor rating.
As highly marketable as this restaurant is- with a rich history and welcoming and fun environment- I expected much better.

My husband and I came here for our weekly date night and it did not disappoint. We had the Crab Beignets & Boudin Balls to start, which I highly recommend. Our entrees and service were also amazing. It is extra impressive when you consider we just had a hurricane and are still in the middle of a pandemic.
