What a unique place. I have been here a few times, and have always had a great time. An ultra chill place, but you have to know the rules. Order food from the right bar, only certain beers are served at the balcony, the main menu is served later at night. Anyway, none of that seems to bother me because the bartenders are great and explain everything. Two main areas, a downstairs that allows smoking, and upstairs/balcony that is smoke free. I cannot get enough of the old world French/Cajun look and feel of the place. Just perfect for a laid back and enjoyable session. I can people watch and sip on great beer all day on the balcony.

The service is great, everyone is very Knowledgeable and enthusiastic about what they have to offer. They know beer and how to serve it to a T. The food I had was very good. Smoked sausage, pulled pork, and pasta salad. Everything was great, and the rest of the menu is available later.

The selection is awesome. A handful of LA locals, but none of those are any good outside of NOLA. They do a cask Friday which is great. Happened to be Saint Arnold Endeavor. The rest of the tap list ranges from Green Flash, Saint Somewhere, Dieu du Ciel, and Prof Fritz 1809. All are in good to great condition. Believe it or not the bottle list is even more impressive. Cantillon, JW Lees, Drie Fonteinen, Evil Twin, etc, etc.

One of the best places to have a beer in the Country, period. Just awesome, and I can't recommend this place enough.

Although this place looks like a dive, it is absolutely the best bar in New Orleans. The bartenders know their stuff. The selection is unmatched and if you are hungry, grab the dump truck fries. The pub also hosts frequent brewery events and special keg tappings.

"Divey" is the wrong word. So many places try too hard for divey but this place is homey in a more genuine way than so much of the more touristy section on nola. Beer selection is not the best I've ever seen anywhere but pretty respectable, including sours on draft (mucho bonus points for me) and again, the other places nearby are pretty limited. Food is a mixed bag; less pretentiously French/creole but high quality for what there is. Will definitely be back.
