I stopped here during my visit to New Orleans. This and Stein's was a nice change of pace from the usual beer offerings around New Orleans. You can only drink so much Abita.
It was a Sunday afternoon, with the football game on. Everyone was going bananas over the game. I didn't care much, but at least I knew I was getting the real deal here.
I ordered a hamburger with a side of fries and a NOLA Hopitoulas. The beer was good and the food was good (although, screwing up a greasy burger with fries is pretty tough). The service was fine, if you're a regular it's probably a bit better.
Cigarette smoke was waving around the bar. I didn't mind, but I can't say the same for the people I was with. They are too used to Wisconsin life I suppose.
This is a must stop place in New Orleans if you're after a good selection of beer and some good food. This place by far had the largest selection of beer on tap.

Great selection of draft and bottles. I've been traveling around the US and have been looking for any type of de Struise beer for awhile (either bottle or tap)--they had Weltmerz on tap. Definitely a world class beer list.
I went on a Friday night around 9:30 PM. Place was busy, but not packed. Service upstairs was slow and impersonal. Downstairs service was better. Nice that they could keep my tab at both bars. I went for the beer list, not the service, but would have been nice if the bar staff demonstrated an interest in what they had available.
Atmosphere was what you would expect from an older NOLA bar (i.e., older building, creaky stairwell, mismatch furniture, low light, etc.). Crowd the night I went was mostly college-educated late 20's, early 30's. Was able to easily find a place to sit with my wife.
Did not try the food.
