Mixed review on our dinner. Place was incredibly loud with people yelling and more people than space at the bar. At our table, server disappeared frequently, especially when we needed him. Took 35 mins from drink order to ordering food. Food was great, however the experience was very less than great.

Me and my boyfriend went for a late Valentines Dinner. For both of us, it was our first time dining in. The service was exceptional, and we will definitely be back soon! (I even got a single red rose to take home for the occasion.)

Fantastic as usual. College Inn is a great place to stop in for a drink and a quick bite or an evening meal with the family. But, don’t tell anyone or they’ll get too busy!!

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.

We enjoy Ye Olde College Inn very much. It's just a stone's throw from our house, so it's very much a neighborhood favorite. Great food and service at moderate prices.

Had to wait a bit to get our table. Delicious though. Ordered a vegan dish and it was just as good as any other. Always consistent and just classic New Orleans!

College Inn remains one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Fantastic drinks at the bar. Excellent new crab and brie appetizer. The new duck dish is also great. Fantastic service with a smile. Good parking. Always great food for many years.

Us olde hostess wouldn't honor my open table reservation and said they were trying to block the slots, but couldn't. Put me last in line for a 9:00 rez. We left and the 2 of us spent our $250 at Ruth's Chris. I guess they don't need my patronage.
