“Ordered lunch to go for five. Fried shrimp salad scary...small peices of pre-breaded shrimp way too salty so I tried to peel off the breading but impossible because they were so overcooked.

The Harbor Bar and Grill

 5 star(s)  (06/13/2011)
“I'm in New Orleans once a month for business and I make it a point to stop into the Harbor every time. It's got the best burgers (I'm thinking there should be a Food Network Challenge between the Harbor and Port O'Call) and the best wings in the French Qtr. It seems crazy to give a bar 5 stars but... ”

“7:17pmComing back from Bourbon Street with some friends late hours of the night, we saw this place called Daisy Dukes. We get a table, our menus and I see something that caught my eye. A burger that was called "Double D Burger". I'm not joking, that's what they really call it. So the waitress ca... ”

Daisy Dukes Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (12/30/2010)
“The fact that Daisy Dukes is a dive and two doors over is a very seedy strip club I was very reluctant to give it a try. Needless to say I am glad to have overlooked that and gave tried them out. The food was great and the servers actually seem to like what they are doing.”
