Shrimp Boil at Mr. Gregory'sShrimp Boil at Mr. Gregory's
150 reviews
Creole / Cajun / Southern | French Quarter, New Orleans

Mister Gregory's Shrimp Boil provided a one-of-a-kind dining experience for our group. The food was amazing. We ended up having the top floor to ourselves which looks out at Louis Armstrong Park. Pretty awesome spot. They even brought in a local performer to sing a few songs for us. Couldn't recommend this place enough. More

Steakhouse | Madisonville, Northshore

We moved to Madisonville a little over four years ago and this was our first visit to Keith Young's. My wife and I visited for our (combined) birthday celebrations, and could not have been more pleased. Although we can and do enjoy all sorts of dining experiences, from rustic beach bars on up, we are somewhat spoiled insofar as food is concerned, being born and raised in New Orleans, and in restaurant families. We can always find something we would improve upon, but not tonight, however. Each dish was prepared to (our personal) perfection, and fault was not to be found in seasoning or preparation. The stuffed mushrooms balanced the crab and bread well, and the seared scallops were perfectly done - that is to say seared and not cooked, and the beurre blanc well balanced between sweet cream and tart. And of course the beef filets were brought to us just as ordered, no confusion as to what medium rare was, with a slight smoky sear flavor and exceedingly tender. Even the warm bread was surpassingly crispy and soft. We are now planning to get certificates for our (6) children and spouses for their anniversaries. This was truly a dining experience not to be missed. J & A More

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
