“Great New Bar and Lounge”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This is a great new place to have a drink and watch football games. The beer selection is plentiful and the service is very pleasant. The fries are amazing. I would have to say that they were the best that I have ever had. It is nice to have a new, clean, and fun place to watch the Saints.

“Seriously, the BEST Gumbo”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

I was on a mission for gumbo and a new place called the American Sports Saloon was by far the best we had (BIG surprise!). Chef Robin has a passion for the region's food. If given a chance in a different format (not a sports bar) he could be the next Emeril. Bartender Mary was fantastic, too. Great place to spend an afternoon.

“Fun Bar!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

This bar has such a nice feel to it. During the day the doors are open to the street and the music is pumping and the drinks are flowing. I don't see this as much of a sports saloon as the two times I visited in a couple days it was about having some drinks and listening to some great live music. Stop in, this is a very friendly place to be!!

“Amazing ”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

Stopped in here for a quick drink and stayed for the amazing food and service. The owner came out and talked to us and gave us samples of sauces that he created himself. It is a very chill environment and all the workers love their work and will talk your ear off. Prices are also extremely reasonable and beer selection is amazing.
