Our server was 5+ stars but the hostess was disrespectful and rude. Almost left after driving an hour to get there, but we stuck it out and a very good experience because of our server. Food was very good. Loved the desserts.
Pricey aps ($6 for 6 fried onion rings?) And $38 for soft shell crab seemed crazy. Food was good. Drinks were good and wine list was reasonable.
Never disappoints!! Looking forward to new menu items.
Consistently excellent! The soft shell crab and grilled shrimp over crawfish rice was incredible, as was the turkey andouille gumbo! Best and freshest crab in town, never frozen. Welcoming service is always like none other. Southern hospitality at its finest.
Delicious food, always.
Classic old school.
Great fun and great fresh food. A wonderful local favorite for many years. Excellent friendly service. Great bar, great appetizers like oysters blue. Many New Orleans favorites. Everything is good. Crawfish Delacroix, shrimp and grits, steaks, and l love the veal cutlet. Good parking. Rock and Bowl steps away for a complete experience.
Such a neighborhood feeling every time we go. Food is great and the staff always makes you feel like a regular no matter how long between visits.
One of our very favorite places!!
New Orleans fare. Tasty and timely served. Great service! Waiters wore masks the whole time. Restaurant goers did only to enter. Delicious grilled drum bayou catch of the day w crabmeat in top. Personally I could do without the sauce on the fish. For me, less is more on fish, but I just scraped it to the side. Delicious seafood gumbo. Some of my table mates’ dishes looked heavier but that’s what they like too. Steak/potatoes, chicken fried steak are not my orders but they enjoyed them. Delightful dinner. Drinks. Friendly family kind of place. Not intimate /more hearty. The poboys are divine there. Before I changed my diet their fried shrimp poboyvwas my go-to. Very cordial place and right next to RockNBowl.
Service very good. Friendly hostess with a local vibe (inside). Food served promptly; if you order appetizers hold off with ordering main course until appetizers arrive.
Cuisine and service was fabulous as always. Ye Olde College Inn never disappoints!!!
Dined al fresco - it’s noiser inside. This is classic old New Orleans - a locals place - with a variety of well-prepared dishes including seafood and land food, po-boys to delicious entrees. The liquor drinks are impeccable
Always good, always consistent.
Super tasty, fresh food! Wait staff knowledgable and had great recommendations. Their outdoor area is nice on a night with good weather; it is part of their parking lot but you don't feel like you are eating in a parking lot if that makes sense. Make a great beverage as well! Definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting or have guests in town.
Always a great choice!
Great place for a dinner. Fast and great service.
We always love it here. Food, cocktails, and service. That’s what it’s all about.
Always a lively place with enough menu items to pleas anyone!
Outstanding as always
We always eat at YOCI when we are in town the food is consistantly yummy and the staff is awesome!
Great food. Chad was our waiter and he was great. All around, an excellent experience!
Ye Olde College Inn has quite a reputation for being a place worth going to both for its food , service, and staff. The other night we went there for my Wife's Birthday Dinner and they exceeded that reputation.
Over the top fabulous! The skirt steak special was divine- best steak I’ve ever had.
We come here often and everything is always outstanding! Service is great and the food is always perfect! I have never had a bad meal at Ye Olde College Inn
Absolutely amazing, no misses the whole service. It was special to watch a group of individuals who obviously care dearly about their craft have so much fun while doing so.
Dinner at Ye Olde College Inn is always wonderful. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating from the moment you enter. Jimmie is the best making sure all dining needs are taken care of and adding the friendliest personality to the whole experience. Of course, this is the icing on the cake with the delicious food and excellent drinks.
Awesome place. Great server. Loved all the memorabilia and the food was fantastic. Go for the seafood dishes.
Martinis are 🔥
We have been coming for decades. Always great. One of the few restaurants that gets better every year. Great food and service. Everyone had a favorite dish. All are very good. Excellent bar and wine as well. Good parking. You cannot go wrong. Enjoy a New Orleans classic
We have been to College Inn many times, over the years. This is the first time we ever had Jim as our waiter. He was delightful! He was professional but very personable. He was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He really added another positive to the evening
The food was great. And service was excellent. But it was very noisy. It was a little distracting.
Really great food, great atmosphere. Will definitely dine here again!
Our server Jimmy made our experience absolutely perfect! He was warm, friendly and engaging. He knew the menu like the back of his hand and he made great recommendations. We will be back and we will request Jimmy! He is beyond excellent!
Mardi Gras canceled this year but not a total loss as we had a delicious meal at Ye Olde College Inn! Great service, cozy atmosphere.......an all around great experience! We will be back! 💛💜💚
Mardi Gras lunch
Wonderful Mardi Gras lunch! Excellent service and tasty apps, salads and sandwiches.
Food was absolutely fantastic. I can’t wait to go back and try more of the menu.
The dinner was outstanding. My wife and I had the shrimp and grits and they were wonderful - very tasty but not overly salty or seasoned. Our granddaughter had the breaded veal cutlet which she loved - the portion size there was extremely generous. The service was great and we were finished our dinner in an hour without feeling rushed at all. Really great meal.
