The fried green tomatoes and eggs...to die for!!! It's a must.
I want to redecorate my entire house like this restaurant. The ambiance is so lovely and drag brunch was a blast! They thought of everything too - loved that a guy came around with ones we could buy to give the queens. They were happy to pose for photos after! Food was great, bottomless mimosas were great, 100% will return.
So much fun and great food!
A fabulous dining experience- beautiful bar and wall murals
Incredible Sweetheart Meal, and we went and soaked in the hot tub after. Couldnt ask for a better Valentine's Day Date Night
Loved the food and atmosphere. The place was breathtaking and the food not overpriced.
Zach was great !
Staff wasn’t very friendly. Crab beignets and the shrimp entree were overly salty. Overall experience was boring and underwhelming. Not likely to come back
AMAZING LOVE SO MUCH
Drag brunch was so fun besides the drinks and amazing food the show and service was amazing. We loved every second and would highly recommend.
Undercooked food 2 other tables in the place occupied yet a draconian cancellation policy
Music far too loud to have a conversation with my partner seated right next to me
Yet with only two other tables they chose to put us all together.
Food was tasty until you run into bloody chicken or uncooked fish
Quaint environment - hand painted artwork interesting mouldings etc
My daughter said we HAD to try The Country Club for dinner while visiting NOLA, and we’re so glad we did. The decor is unique — charming, eclectic, and so funky yet stylish. The corn and crab chowder enlivened with coconut milk was one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted, and so hearty that we were glad we’d had them split the bowl for the two of us in the kitchen. Also delectable almost beyond words the grilled fish, which was drum that night, served over crisply roasted Brussels sprouts in a divinely dreamy, creamy sauce. Only sorry that we were too stuffed by then to dive into a dessert... or into the swimming pool out back. Maybe in warmer weather. We will just have to go back!
Thanks for your review. It's always fun to hear from someone who loves the food as much as we do! We look forward to seeing you when you come back.
It was great!!!! They definitely have the whole brunch thing for large groups figured it out! Service was great. So fun!!!!! Will go back
Thanks for your feedback! We are thrilled to hear you had a wonderful time.
Our bachelorette group had the best time ever at The Country Club. The staff is very friendly. Our bottomless drinks were constantly being refilled, our food came out quickly and was delicious. But the pièce de résistance was the drag queen show. These performers were awesome and very entertaining and so fun!!! We got lots of pics and even made friends with other tables around us. It was an experience we will not forget! We all agreed this is a MUST-DO for anyone visiting NOLA.
We are so thrilled to hear you had a wonderful time with us recently and hope you'll visit us again in the future.
No one smiled. Seemed like the receptionist, bar tender and waitress all had something more important to do. And the food was just very average.
Thank you for your feedback. We strive to provide exceptional service and food for our guests and apologize that we did not meet your expectations. We will send your feedback to the manager on duty for that date and will be sure to address this matter with the staff directly. We hope that you will give us a chance to make it up to you sometime in the future.
Very interesting place, decor is spectacular, menu is on point, bar area is huge, artwork is gallery worthy, service is quick and friendly.
We are thrilled to hear you had a wonderful time at The Country Club recently and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Food was poor quality which was really unexpected. Truffle Mac and cheese made my gf and I sick
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you felt ill after eating with us. The Truffle Mac & Cheese is an extremely DENSE and rich dish and can be a bit heavy for some people. We do wish that you would have brought your concerns about the poor food quality up to the manager on duty while you were still there so we could have made it right for you then. We pride ourselves in providing delicious, high-quality food and are deeply sorry to hear that was not your experience.
I cannot recommend this place enough!!! The restaurant itself is BEAUTIFUL! The wall murals are breathtaking. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the manager spoke to us, we were very well cared for. The food was SO GOOD. We had 13 girls and the crowd favorites were the chicken & waffles and the macaroni and cheese! The emcee was engaging and fun, the drag queens were so nice and interactive. We truly had a blast. I will never miss a chance to do this again whenever I go to NOLA!
We are happy to hear you all had a wonderful time with us last weekend! We look forward to seeing you next time you are in town.
We’ve been here several times, usually for brunch or lunch. So this was our first dinner experience. The appetizers were good, as well as the mussels and baked chicken. The fish special “white drum” was not. Overall we enjoy having brunch/lunch here vs dinner.
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you weren't happy with the fish. We encourage all of our guests to bring any concerns up to the manager on duty so we can make it right. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional food and service and are sorry to hear we let you down. We hope we get the chance to make it up to you in the future.
Such a fun place to eat! The design scheme of the restaurant is amazing and it is impeccably detailed. The ambiance was nice, and the menu was on the smaller side but full of amazing dishes. My group had the Chateaubriand, Duck fat Roasted Chicken, and the Pan Seared Shrimp. All were amazing, our server was incredibly nice and accommodating, and overall we could not have had a better dinner! We were so charmed.
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your meal with us and look forward to seeing you again in the future.
So much fun!! Food was good and the entertainment was even better. Definitely a great experience!
We were all disappointed with our entrees ..they were ok at best and the staff wasn’t friendly at all. I’m sure everyone is overworked at this point but it was a birthday celebration that was flat.
We had a great time Celebrating New Year’s Eve at The Country Club. Enjoyed the food and the live band. Very festive atmosphere. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating. Thank you!!!
The staff could not wait to get us out of there. They never smiled, we were chastised several times at the table for not calling ahead about a gluten intolerance, and they literally turned the lights off outside on everyone at 12:44.
If your staff is disgruntled about an event, don’t sell 140$ New Year’s Eve tickets. It was embarrassing to demonstrate such poor hospitality, especially to our visiting friends.
We are very sorry to hear that you did not have a wonderful NYE experience. We have sent you a private message to follow up in more detail and will address this matter with management and staff asap.
New Year’s Eve was spectacular! The service...the food...EVERYTHING!
Año Nuevo , cena rica y servicio muy bueno
Such a wonderful atmosphere. Food and service were awesome.
Visiting from Atlanta and came for brunch. Read reviews about a drag show that we did not see. The game was on so music only played during commercials but the vibe was very energetic. Had a great rum punch and the crab cakes were amazing!! Service was pretty good but nothing to write home about. Chicken and waffles left something to be desired. Fries green tomatoes were pretty good as well. The sauce that came with them was really good!
We go to the Country Club every time we visit New Orleans. The food and service is always top notch! It’s a great place for a group to celebrate and have fun. Definitely recommend.
Best brunch I’ve had in Louisiana. Awesome to see such a queer friendly space with great quality food. I’ll definitely be back.
The drag brunch at the country club was outstanding! We expected the show to be fabulous but did not expect such a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The customer service was exceptional - they offered us mimosas to drink while we waited for our table to free up. The food was absolutely delicious and the waiting staff was attentive and very friendly. Would recommend this to everyone I know!
Thank you for the wonderful review. It's always great to hear our guests were met with exceptional service. We are happy you enjoyed yourself and hope you'll visit us again.
Definitely a fun brunch! Food & drinks were excellent. Would recommend
Always a great time
Loved the coconut milk crab bisque! Restaurant was a little slower than usual but still same fun vibe and music
We had a great meal at the Country Club. I would highly recommend the crab balls and the chicken entree!
I got the Fried Green Tomatoes w/eggs, side of bacon and biscuit. It was soooo good. Service was great and fast.
What a lovely surprise! We love the Bywater neighborhood and usually go to Elizabeth's for breakfast/brunch, but read that The Country Club had a great brunch, too. We ordered the Boudin Boulettes, which were huge, meaty and delicious. The arugula salad accompanying them was perfect. I had the eggs on fried green tomatoes in a lovely tomato and pepper sauce with cherry tomatoes on top. I thought the sauce would make the fried tomatoes soggy, but they were still quite crispy and the eggs with hollandaise were decadent and yummy. My husband had the Chilaquiles and as this is a dish we make ourselves at home with green chiles, we're a little picky and he ate every single bite and wouldn't share! The side of biscuit with jam was divinely buttery and flaky, and the bacon we ordered extra crispy was as crisp as a potato chip and not burned at all. A wonderful way to end our visit to New Orleans. We'll be back next time!
The show/entertainment was awesome. The costumes and joyous interaction with guests made it so exciting. Staff kept the bottomless mimosas coming. Well worth it. Food and atmosphere were great. Absolutely love the butterfly paintings and butterfly wall with random faces.
Everything was awesome! It was perfect for our Christmas Brunch!
