Lucy's is a fun and friendly place. We were tired and didn't want to dress up but wanted a light supper. We were in the warehouse/art district looking for an easy place and this place was perfect. Food was very good, started with the smoked tuna dip - yumm then the fish tacos. Both were fresh, served quickly and delicious. This is great little find.

Awesome po-boys and catfish chips. Great drinks and a neighborhood bar vibe that is New Orleans

Watched the Saints (unfortunately lose) and the Giants Divisional playoff games here, they projected the Saints game onto the building next door and had a lot of outdoor seating even though it was January. Definitely a fun spot, great atmosphere. Very laid back. The Queso dip with taco meat was awesome. Heard the oyster Po Boy was great too. Relatively cheap beers and mimosas in the morning.

Great local bar, lots of regulars, good prices for food and drink. If you want local, traditional New Orleans food this is NOT the place. They have great breakfasts, quesadillas, burgers, and the like. Gumbo and poboys are not available. Full bar pouring stiff drinks accented with a small plastic mermaid or monkey dangling on the side of your glass. Fun atmosphere.

Needed a quick lunch between meetings and were a bit disappointed. The manager was friendly and helped us get a high chair for or son, but the waitstaff was scattered and unattentive. There was much confusion about a very simple order of baja chicken tortilla roll ups. At first the kitchen told our server they were out of this item, but then before we could decide on something else and before our appetizer of chips and fresh salsa arrived she returned with new news that they were not out of our requested dish. Once it arrived the salsa and fresh chips were tasty and probably the best thing we ate. Our absent minded server returned with the baja roll ups and we were disappointed. The decor of the place was fun and inviting and the scene was more lively later in the day.
