Unfortunately there was only one worker available due to another server quitting earlier in the day. He was the bartender and server for every guest which was unfortunate for him. He did what he could but to manage the entire restaurant by himself. The food and drinks were decent for the price paid.

We were a bit underwhelmed by our dinners. My jambalaya was good but two of us ordered the gumbo and it was very disappointing. It was served with a big amount of rice in the middle of a soup bowl with an embarrassingly small amount of actual gumbo/soup around it. A dish that's over $20 shouldn't leave you walking out still hungry.

Very french quarter like, this bar/restaurant really does try to immerse you in what they think New Orleans is like. With hanging potted plants to the jazz music(that you can hear for down the street) they really did pay attention to detail with this place. I really enjoyed the food and would most definitely suggest this spot to ppl within the area!

Food was amazing. The dessert took forever but the server apologized and took it off the bill. The walls need some new orleans themed art!

They reserved a table with 4 chairs. I was alone and sat down waiting for DJ Dan to arrive with the Karaoke equipment. More people arrived and I relinquished my table to them and sat at the bar (after eating). All night long? PACKED! I sang one song in the beginning and one song before closing. A lot of nice people, and a really good time! Highly recommended!

Food was wonderful, however sat for 10 minutes before getting a server and the another 20 before getting our drinks then another 10 before we could order. Told us she would pay for second round of drinks but then put it on our bill. When getting our dresser a large party came in and the had us move to another table. Very strange.

My wife an I was excited to go after reading the menu. Once their our waitress brought us the appetizers with no utensils to eat it with. She waited until I was half way done to bring the sauce I had asked for. The food was over battered with no flavor. The chicken entree my wife order was turned into a sandwich instead of what we ordered. Upon leaving we had to again go look for someone to get a bag for our to go boxes. Oh, and the drinks tasted seriously watered down! Never had a dirty martini that tasted like water. Will most likely never return

The waitress was very nice and attentive, only thing is she forgot to ask about dessert and I hear they have some that is to die for! The ambiance is really decent, it was a little loud in there because they were watching the game, but that doesn't too much bother me. I guess it depends what your looking for. I ordered the Goulash, but was not pleased at all with it, I can make better at home. However, the waitress since my obvious dislike for my meal and she comped my drink for me, which is definently a wow factor! My boyfriend had the Lamb chops and he said they were pretty good and he would order them again. The crab cakes were absolutely delicious, I will go back for those alone!!. The only thing is, I feel the appetizer menu was more appealing then the Entree menu, thus why I ended up with goulash.. Also I don't think it would be a bad idea to add an appetizer size bowl of Gumbo for tasting..! Overall I would go back. Next time though, I'll order multiple appetizers!!

I had ordered delivery from The Quarter during the pandemic indoor dining shut down and it was excellent so when I saw that brunch was being offered I couldn't wait to try it. I was not disappointed!! The food was creative and excellent!. I had the shrimp cake eggs benedict and it exceeded my expectations. I will definitely return often

My 2nd visit and I must say I am way less impressed. Food was ok. Table could use an extra wipe especially now during Covid. Server delivered plates and left us without silverware. That was absolutely embarrassing. Music was loud and restless, especially on Easter brunch. Toilets needs to be cleaned, your vents are disgusting!! Not sure if I will be back.

It was ok
Food was good and fast

I will go back after Kent when choice options are more numerous to us.

I had the shrimp tacos which were good

Should have other options available than fries.

They nailed the hurricane

The food was not bad but it wasn’t good either(except for the beignets but I’ll get to that later). For 25-30$ a plate I expected something that didn’t taste like I made it at home. The salmon was way over cooked, and the risotto was way under cooked. The jambalaya was alright if it came from a box. The beignets were burnt, and not like over done. I’m talking charred black. I thought “maybe it’s just chocolate sauce. Nope. Tasted like burnt toast. They did reimburse us for them but not without a snotty remark from the waitress that they were “a little crispy for our liking”. I even had to look on the Yelp website pictures to make sure I wasn’t going crazy. But they were definitely charred. Would not recommend

I started with the shrimp trio as a appetizer, it was ok. The grilled shrimp was good, the shrimp tempura was as expected, the bang bang shrimp was underwhelming. I had the Cajun salmon which was delicious! I would get that again! The bananas foster was also delicious!
My husband had creole bbq wings, which were very good. He has gumbo as a meal and it was just good.
