Fodor's Review

"Real food, done real good" is the motto at Elizabeth's, where the vinyl-print tablecloths look just like grandma's and breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The menu offers everything from po'boys to a stellar seared duck. The fried-oyster po'boy is huge and irresistible. The staff is spunky, and so is the Bywater neighborhood clientele. Weekend brunch is served from 8 am to 2:30, and includes "lost bread" (also known as French toast), "red neck eggs" (fried

green tomatoes with poached eggs and hollandaise), and a traditional country breakfast with a smoked pork chop. The praline bacon is a must. Breakfast is served every weekday as well, from 8 am to 2:30 pm, and has almost the same options. Reservations are accepted only for dinner.

Don't always go with a good review

It may have been an off day, but our experience at Elizabeth's was definitely forgettable. They biscuits were barely warm and too dense, the fruit looked like it had been sitting in a salad bar fruit bowl, the coffee wasn't fresh and the famous bacon was "eh." The location is also in the midst of a strange area that reminded us of a slightly brighter version Mad Max (if you remember that movie). We read so many good reviews though, so I'm wondering

who the reviewers actually were and if Elizabeth's knew they were coming if they got some excellent stand-in cooks.

Get There Now !

Fantastic dinner ! They have moved beyond the nothing over $10 entrees into some over $20 category, but worth it. Side dishes are amazing, must try Praline bacon, even with dinner if you can't make weekend brunch, Sweet Potato fries YES, incredible mashed bourbon sweet potatoes, deep flavored greens, smashed potatoes, the list goes on and on. The Corpse Reviver,their take on a Sazerac, was my favorite drink in all of New Orleans. Lunch was good,

but poor service, and they ran out of specials too quickly. Wish I could have eaten here more than twice during my trip. Tell the cab drivers to obey and take you there now ! One got completely lost and refused to believe any tourist would want to eat dinner in Bywater !It's also a nice walk from the Quarter during the day. Check out Dr. Bob's art studio on the trip back - of the "Be Nice or Leave" fame. New hours and meal service. Closed Mon and Tues. Breakfast only on Sat & Sun. Lunch & Dinner Wed- Sun.
