Visited New Orleans with my wife and made a stop here. She here for a conference and while she was in a meeting, I took a quick visit here.

I came in and was greeted by the hostess and and I asked if I could just sit down at the bar. She informed me there was a bar upstairs as well as the one that was right there on the 1st floor.

It was a pretty cool bar overall. Semi-dim lighting and good sized (upstairs and downstairs). Really cool music (as most of the music in the city), but it got better. It was actually live music, there was 3 guys playing stand up base, electric guitar, and a clarinet, blended nice, it was cool jazz/blues style music. There's also a beer pick up window right on the sidewalk. For those of you who don't know you can drink in public in New Orleans, so you can just goto the pick up window and order a beer and and just keep walking, pretty cool I guess.

I sat down and one of the bar tender came I asked for a flight of all the beers. She gave me a piece of paper explained the beers and after a few minutes she poured them and brought them over. It was a little slow for not being very busy.

She brought a flight of 4 beers. A pilsner, an amber/red (red stallian), a dark Munich beer (Black Forest), and a seasonal which was a bock. The beers range from ok to pretty good. I think my favorite was the Black forest then the Bock, I really didn't care much for the other two.

I didn't get any food, but the people around me seemed to enjoy theirs. They had more than just pub grub, plenty of steak and seafood options as well. Overall it was a pretty good place, I'd say it was expensive, I think I paid $12 bucks for the small samples, but it was ok based on the city prices. It's worth stopping in.

Pretty chill place. They only have 5 of their own beers. 1 outta 2 of those that I tried were good. Very mediocre food. Nothin too crazy. Plus everything was WAAAAAAAAYYYY overpriced!!! For me and my girl to get the cheapest thing on the menu each, and three drinks each, it was 80 friggin bucks!! Plus they messed up on my food and her drink. Won't be goin back.

Was here in August 2013. I thought the beer was very average, we had poor service, and the food was average at best. We attempted to do the tour at NOLA but it was cancelled upon arrival. This was the closest place to it, so we went here instead. It is in a great spot, but was disappointed overall.
