We came for dinner as this was the only place open within close walking distance from One Shell Plaza. We all ordered different Po Boys and v=we were all happy with our order. I took the fired oysters off the buns and enjoyed them. THE Servce was marginal as it tool forever to find our waiter to pay the bill and head back to the office.

I'm not really sure how to ride a bad review. The place was not very clean. Our table was dirty. And our napkins, our cloth napkins, were also stained and dirty. This was our waitresses first of night, so I can't really fault her. She had only been on the job for three hours. Our order took over 30 minutes for sandwiches and hamburgers. When the order arrived, our food was warm at best but not at the right temperature. It was cooler than it should've been. The busboy was having a bad night evidently. By the crash of glasses and dishes that he made when clearing the tables and by the slamming the tub down when he was done. And I don't think that he ever smiled. Maybe he just hates his job. There are so many places to eat down here in New Orleans, there is no need to stop here. Move along. Nothing to see here.

Buffet breakfast 16.50, runny eggs, sausage (no bacon) biscuits and gravy, grits and cold cereal. Very poor selection for the price

While my girlfriend and I were down in New Orleans, we decided to eat lunch here since we wanted to watch pro football and they had the NFL Sunday ticket. The only good thing I can say about this place is that they had a lot of TVs and every game on at least one them. You could watch whatever game interested you and you could watch 3 to 4 games at once from just about any seat in the restaurant.
The waitress that we had was horrible. She was infrequent in visiting our table even though we mentioned that we would be ordering food throughout the afternoon while watching the games. When we were able to order, it took a considerably long time for us to receive the food. The order was incorrect on 2 of the orders that we placed.
The food was average at best. We ordered the sliders and the meat for the 4 sliders was one hamburger that was cut into fourths. One slider only had a burger on it that was the diameter of a quarter! The chicken tenders were dry and overcooked. The queso dip had a film over the top of it.
When we finally were ready to leave, we received the bill and it already included a 17% gratuity even though we had all of these problems with the service and orders.
I am not going to go to this place ever again and I would advise anybody else to do the same.
