    I liked how they carried over their restaurant week menu to this week. We had some great meals and great values. Our waiter. Jeremy was awesome very attentive and we were lucky enough to actually sit down and talk with Nathan Henderson, the front house manager.

    We had the 3 course meal during restaurant week. It was a good price for three courses. Appetizers were baked oysters for one of us and the scallops for the other. Entrees were pork chop and whole fried fish. Very good. Coconut pie is always a winner for dessert. Bread pudding is really good too.

    We were encouraged by our waiter at Ruby Slipper to go to Pelican Club for dinner and it did not disappoint! One of the best meals we ever had. We both had the three course meal. My husband added a shrimp bisque to his courses. We shared baked oysters, an heirloom and tomato salad, both had the 1 1/2 lobsters with shrimp and scallops and finished by sharing coconut cream pie and an amazing flourless chocolate cake! Our server was great, and the manager Leslie checked in on us regularly. We also added the bread service as recommended and that was decedent focaccia bread. Yum! We will be back next time we visit NOLA!

    Seafood martini is back yay! This visit was perfect. Staff, menu, food prep all outstanding. It’s the best menu in town. The last time I was there it was almost too loud to have a conversation so I appreciated the atmosphere this visit. See you again before the seafood martini disappears!
