Fodor's Review

On one of the French Quarter's busiest corners is Dickie Brennan's biggest and flashiest restaurant yet (he also owns Palace Café and Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse), and it's a solid hit with seafood aficionados. The raw bar is prime real estate, with its sterling oysters on the half shell, chilled seafood platters, and antique, decorative oyster plates, but the elegant main dining room is more appropriate for digging into the Creole catalog—oysters Bienville, catfish pecan, and Gulf fish on the "half shell" with lump crab meat. Take your frozen bourbon-milk punch in a to-go cup. Why? Because you can.

Gotta do it

My hubby and I were in N.O. this past weekend. On the first night we wanted a good variety of seafood, after looking all over Bourbon Street we decided on the Bourbon House. Excellent decision!!! We got Callamari, stuffed crab, alligator soup and the gumbo for appetizers(we like a fine sampling) everthing was our favorite, I highly reccomend the alligator soup(my first). For the entree we split the seafood platter. This was more than plenty for

us, and we left STUFFED. Turns out the next night my husband had a dinner meeting again at the Bourbon House, we were thrilled. We got the same things except that we got an extra entree, the stuffed redfish. Of all of the placed that we have eaten in N.O. this has to be our fav.

Fantastic in every sense

Three weary travelers went on our first night in NO. We had our best meal of the trip. Deviled crab app, redfish on the halfshell, barbeque shrimp, and paneed veal for the entrees and dessert of chocolate chunk bread pudding and amaretto strawberry cake. The redfish (get the lump crab added on) was rated the best by all three of us; the shrimp were a close second! And the bread pudding... had it a few times during the trip and this was by far the

best! Our waiter Ryan was knowledgable and extremely personable and helpful. This restaurant will be on our must list the next time we go.
