“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. Not as described on menu, lettuce looked fresh but tasted like chemicals. Waste of $10.00. Did not have time... ”

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... ”

Charlie's Steakhouse

 5 star(s)  (01/24/2011)
“The bar was dimly lit and packed with people. I was having doubts, but then we were seated. This place way INCREDIBLE. The steak was the best I've ever had, the blue cheese salad dressing was pretty close to it, our waiter was one of the most personable people I've ever been served, the whole staff ... ”

“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.”

The Harbor Bar and Grill

 5 star(s)  (08/24/2010)
“Came to the "French Quarters" in New Oleans for our honeymoon. N.O Saints and Houston Texans were playing a pre-season game that night so we wanted to find a sports bar to hang out and watch the game. Wondered upon the Harbon Bar and Grill where I met the most wonderful people. Bartenders were alway... ”

“Went there for the Boil Shrimp ($5.00) pound. Not dissapointed at all. Shrimp were very nice size and spiced right. 2nd time back had the Red Beans & Rice. This is a real treat, real ham hocks and all the trimmings. Don't miss this on Monday's. Going back again.”

Saltwater Grill

 5 star(s)  (05/27/2009)
“We loved everything at Saltwater Grill - especially the food. The poboys were some of the best we have ever had - they were well worth what we paid for them. While located in a small strip mall, once you walk in you forget all about that - we loved the feel and the look of the inside, very warm and ... ”

Chubbies Fried Chicken

“I use to be assisant manager of this place about 14 years ago. Their food is rolling. I need to go get me some chicken, home made red beans and rice & the best onion rings around. They have po boys, daily specials, their rice dress beats all others, mashed potatoes and homemade gravy, homemade biscu... ”

Daisy Dukes Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (03/31/2009)
“For a 24/7 hour Diner I was quite impressed. Brought my family in and every one loved it. We got the shrimp po-boy, wings, burgers, breakfast, gumbo, and red beans. The portions were huge. The best part about the restaurant it was right across from the hotel we were staying at. With the 3.99 ear... ”

Big Easy Billiards & Sports Bar

“Daily specials the way to go. Red Beans and Cochon d'lait are outstanding. Burgers are big and juicy. I eat there regular and have not been dissapointed with the food. Sometimes a little too spicy for me, that's why the 4 stars.”

Chubbies Fried Chicken

 5 star(s)  (03/02/2009)
“This is one of the best poboy shops in the metro area. Call ahead with your order to save some time, and they frequently close around holidays and are closed Sundays so check ahead. If you manage to find them open, you're in for a treat!”
