Description: Deanie's Seafood is loved by locals as one of the "Best Seafood Restaurants in New Orleans" (Gambit Weekly, Times Picayune), "Best Place for Crawfish" and the favorite place for fresh Louisiana seafood prepared in our signature Creole seasonings. For over 50 years Deanie's has been serving huge portions of the best boiled, broiled and fried seafood. Its two restaurants in Bucktown and the French Quarter earned a Zagat food and service rating of "very good to excellent," and its French Quarter private dining spaces are perfect for special events, rehearsal dinner and weddings.

“Fast Service on a Tuesday night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

We ate here on a Tuesday without the usual waiting time. The food came quickly and was good and hot. Fresh seafood. The seasoning wasn't as good as the French Quarter location but close

“Fresh Seafood YUM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Always love eating at Deanie's their food and service are top notch! My favorite location is in Bucktown because of the family dinner atmosphere and actually eating here was our reason for stopping in New Orleans driving back to Houston from Florida. Geaux there and eat something you'll be glad you did :-)

“BBQ shrimp, baby!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

The BBQ shrimp is divine. We loved the crab balls, stuffed crab balls on the platter, the French fries were well served and the seafood platter is the best.

“Celebration”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We went to Deanie's to celebrate a couples anniversary. The service was very good, and the server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Well not realizing it my husband and I ordered the seafood platter each despite the warning from the server. There was so much food we each took some home. Despite the amount of people there, everything was kept clean. We had a wonderful time. Our party was quite large, she took real good care of all us. My husband and I will go back again just my husband and I. Love the food!!!
