    My food was served cold even when I ordered coffee it was served cold as well. The show was old and dated, the Queens need to be updated especially the music. I will not return

    We went to the drag brunch for my sisters bachelorette and had an absolute blast! Everything from the drag show, decor, food and service was amazing! The food was some of our favorites from the whole weekend! I will definitely be returning next time I’m in Nola! Also, following we went to the pool and it was such a good time! Love this place!

    My husband, friends & I all came for the Drag Brunch & LOVED it! Our table really got into it & had a lot of fun! The mimosas do not skimp on champagne & the carafe is a great deal to share w the table. We all enjoyed our food, which was very hard to choose from, because everything sounded good. We tried the fried green tomato starter, strawberry salad, mac n cheese, crab cakes, shrimp & grits, fried green tomato Benedict, & goat cheese grits. Everything was eaten up! The entertainment was really fun & music was loud, but we enjoyed it since we knew it was going to be a show & not too easy to talk, but there is a break in the middle of the show to chat a bit. Overall, highly recommend the Drag Brunch here!!

    Went for drag brunch. We thought it was the best around NOLA but it was just okay. Nothing crazy, the rooms are all separate so you only see the queens for a few min. It is not a show it is just a few drag queens performing songs. Also the menu is very limited. Hopefully next time is better.

    I don’t usually write reviews and I know how hard the service industry can be so even though our service wasn’t extraordinary, it was seemingly at a level I expect as a bare minimum most places, and as such, I’m going to focus on other parts of the experience. 1) it’s a personal pet peeve but I hate QR code menus. Leaving my house and going out face to face with people is a reprieve from our lives glued to our phones and making everyone pull out their devices and stare at our tiny screens as we try and decipher your menu is annoying. It immediately puts me in a bad mood and gives me immediate bad taste regarding the establishment. And that’s if it goes well. At the country club, the QR code link took me to their website which I then had ti navigate to find the menu and then it was slow to load and not even the whole menu loaded. We were visited 4 times by our waitress who once explained how it was slow; was concerned we wouldn’t be able to load it and even suggested we get on their public wifi to go faster (no thank you, and out of desperation, we finally did and it wasn’t any faster). Eventually she relented to inform us that they had paper menus. JUST GIVE ME A MENU WHEN I SIT DOWN! 2) the food: the food was fine. Nothing to complain about but also absolutely nothing yo write home about. My wife really enjoyed the Mac and cheese. And it was good. Nothing was bad but for the prices and the flare and self importance of it all, I’d expect better. 3) the ambiance and setting are fantastic. I have no idea what it would be like when busy and if it would be loud but the building and decorations are beautiful. The staff was VERY nice and outside of the menu nonsense, our service was timely and very attentive.

    We have gone several times to the Country Club of New Orleans for the Drag brunch because it is always a fun time with friends. On this visit there was a new entertainer added to the lineup and she was fantastic as are all the other entertainers. Keep in mind this isn't a Las Vegas show but the entertainers are definitely talented!! The food is pretty good but we go for the entertainment with a group of friends primarily. The service is uniquely different due to the kitchen and wait staff having to attempt to get everyone's order's and drinks at the tables in between performers and fun so expect delays a bit but we have noticed the wait staff really put forth thier best efforts despite the obstacles. We got our drinks right away but because the waiter takes orders for appetizers and entrees all at once for his/her entire section things tend to come out depending on which end of his/her section they started at! However the entertainers keep you busy so it isn't that big of a deal. We didn't care for the Bellini's too much but the Mimosas were okay. We enjoyed the Boudin Bullets as an appetizer and the Salmon dish was very good! The desserts were decadent and good! Definitely would recommend this establishment!! An open mind and determination to laugh and have a great time is all you should bring with you -- No Negativity at all occurred while we were there which was refreshing now a days!

    The food was delicious and service excellent. The only complaint I have which is no fault of the restaurant, there’s a bar Next door with very loud intoxicated people yelling on the street. We ate on their patio. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you eat inside and not on front porch.
