    Consistently excellent! Ye Olde College Inn was able welcome and accommodate a large party of 17 with only one hour notice. We were welcomed with open arms and drinks from the bar (thanks, Mike&Kevin!) Service with Alex and backup team was on point! We enjoyed a wide sampling of appetizers, salads, soups, poboys, daily specials, steaks, entrees, and desserts. Each course was delicious, served on time and hot. All 17 of us enjoyed a terrific, comfy, memorable evening with the Ye Olde College Inn family! Thank you!

    We are devout regulars to college inn and have never ever been disappointed in the food or service. All the wait staff is wonderful but Jimmy is the greatest waiter of all time! Not only do we eat there probably once a month, but it’s our go-to for out of town guests. It’s fun and lively and the food never disappoints… Very “New Orleans”

    Great service and ambiance. Typical New Orleans nice neighborhood restaurant. Great atmosphere. As far as the food goes it was hit and miss. App of sautéed crawfish over warm Brie was greasy and surprisingly bland, and the bbq shrimp had an unusual sweet flavor. Entrees we’re all hits! Mahi mahi fillet sautéed and placed atop crawfish risotto with sautéed shrimp…excellent. Sautéed trout with crawfish sauce… excellent, as was the grilled chicken over orzo pasta with lemon and butter. Service was excellent, good timing, friendly and informative.

    Really great food. My only comment was the gumbo and Mac and Cheese came out cooler than I would have liked - but they were still very good. The Poboy Green tomatoes and Remolaude was awesome as well as fish of day. Very well done. Always a fun place.

    This was my first visit and I will be back. We were seated immediately. Service was prompt, engaging, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food was fantastic! The drinks were generous and reasonably priced. Ambiance was casual and comfortable. You must try the sticky toffee cake for dessert. Yummy!

    I loved dining at this establishment... a great atmosphere and the food was delicious - a special note on onion rings - perfectly fried, not a drip of excess oil! (I think that is hard to do! - so congrats to the kitchen! ) topped by prompt and friendly service!
