Went here to wait while my wife was shopping. It was very crowded and noisy place on a Saturday afternoon. Lots of space though. Two bars. Quite limited selection of local beers. Not my favourite.

The folks at Cooter Brown's did a great job putting together their sandwiches. Simple and fresh, just the way it should be. While you are there take a walk up on the Levy, just outside the tavern.

It's been awhile since I've been here. Menu changed and the food definitely is not what it use to be. I ordered extra blue cheese for my ok wings and it was watered down so bad it wouldn't stick. Very sad used to love the...More

This place is an easy walking distance pitstop for a cocktail after your breakfast or lunch at Camellia Grill. It's dark inside, air conditioned, clean potties (at least at the time we were there) has a pool table and a nice bar tender. It's tradition...More

I tell everyone this the best place to get raw oysters in New Orleans. The beer selection is stupendous as well. It's a dive bar, dirty, dark, but the employees are great. The other food is mediocre too. Go for a very good beer and...More

Nothing fancy here, but does offer an incredible selection of beer. Sit and watch a game and order some oysters. Go into the back area for the beers and a bit of solitude.

The food was mediocre. However, the raw oysters were excellent! Great beer selection. The bar it's self it somewhat dark but it a cool low key hole on the wall.

My family and I visited the Crescent City for my 50th birthday and my sister and brother-in-law 's 32nd Wedding Anniversary. They had never tried a muffaleta sandwich so I knew to bring them to Cooter Brown's. This place has a lot of history here...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
