Loved the food and the restored house where the restaurant resides. Service was excellent and it is great southern dishes that shared. The Mac & Cheese was the best I have had. We will return on our next visit to New Orleans.

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 6 days ago

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.

Words can’t describe what our taste buds experienced. The flavors especially with the bisque caught us off guard and surprised us so much that we had jaw-dropping emotional looks on our faces. At first you don’t know what to expect from the old antique southern hospitality structure but once ordered dishes arrived we were astonished that every course was better than the last. Highly recommended for value, exquisite taste, and atmosphere. The staff was five star plus and very caring about their customers experience. They were attentive but unobtrusive.

The only critique is this is located in a semi-shady looking neighborhood but don’t be fooled. Once you walk in it’s very safe, charming, and unforgettable.

Two days before dining at the restaurant, I was told via phone about a 20-ounce ribeye for two, which was taking the place of a steak special I had previously enjoyed. However, at the restaurant we were told there were no specials, including the rib eye, and the menu was quite limited. I ended ordering a hamburger which was not very good.
It's a shame because I have previously enjoyed eating there in the past but no more.

The Country Club
Responded on March 8, 2021

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed and would have loved the chance to make it right. We had a Valentine's day special with a Ribeye and kept it on the menu until we ran out. We have since replaced it with a Char-Grilled Veal Porterhouse. We do have a limited but fairly diverse menu due to COVID (20 items), however, we continue to expand as capacity and demand allow. We're sorry if availability was miscommunicated and will speak with our hosts to prevent misunderstandings in the future.
