Ye Olde College Inn Ratings and Reviews
This place is hard to get into. It's very popular. We managed to get last minute reservations for 4 last night. I'm sure it was because of all the Mardi Gras parades. All of us ordered the brisket and were quite pleased. We like to go to this restaurant for dinner and its food is very consistent.
Phenomenal restaurant with exceptional service. Ask for Jimmie for your server and you will have a memorable experience. The oysters blue appetizer is a must try. Great onion rings too. The veal cutlet/fish/brisket are all super good choices for your entree. And whatever you do, don’t miss out on the award winning fried bread pudding dessert.
Excellent traditional New Orleans food with a vibrant bar and the best dessert in New Orleans. Have some gumbo, shrimp any way you want, onion rings, oyster loaf or hamburger steak and drink a stout old fashion. Head to rock n bowl afterward and check out the nightlife. Enjoy.
I've been a regular at Ye Olde College Inn since a child. It has remained a family favorite for good food either mid-week or for the weekend when getting family and friends together.
Whether you're looking for a classic New Orleans restaurant dining experience or new to the city as a local or visitor Ye Olde College Inn will definitely please all.
If you're looking for Great Service just ask for Jimmy as your waiter, he's one of the best.
I was there on vacation with my father. It's a bit out of the way from the French Quarter but not that long of a drive. We got there a little early before our reservation so we took a seat at the bar (it was completely full but 2 people left as we were standing by the bar) and ordered 2 Abita beers. Interestingly there was memorabilia on the walls with Chicago Cubs references, my city.
We got seated at a table and shared the gumbo, crawfish delacroix, and fried bread pudding po-boy. Our waiter was attentive, atmosphere was lively, and chef came out for something behind the bar and we gave him our compliments. Everything was excellent and well worth the drive out. I'm glad we went here on one of our 3 nights here for a taste of Louisianan cuisine.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this restaurant. Service and food are outstanding. Have had several family/friend get togethers here. They have an upstairs loft that will seat 8 to 10 people that is perfect for being able to talk and visit. All the food is so good. You can get a fabulous oyster poboy or a full dinner with amazing side items. The wedge salad and onion rings are amazing too. Service is always good.
