Scenery for this place is nice. On Decataur, usually busy, nice random art on the walls. But, this is a very average joint at heart. There is nothing fancy or out of the ordinary about this place. Wasn't real impressed with our waiter, who was not very attentive. Selection was small, with about 5 brews, average styles...none very good or worthy of much exclaim. The good was alright, but nothing to write home about.

We went on a $50 gift card, and have 1 more. Good for getting trashed before going to the Dungeon.

We walked into this place (crescent city brewhouse) and the first thing they said was that they're known for their beer. I can categorically agree, though probably not in the way they want. Probably in the worst 5 breweries I've visited.

One of our favorite stops in NOLA. Not a big fan of other beers in this town, but Crescent City does a solid job with beer and food.

Was so pumped to stop in here when I was in New Orleans as it was literally a block away from hotel... What a disappointment. We finally got in right before a cocktail tour we were going on that met up nearby and sat at the bar. Bar tender came up and when I asked about the beers he started to talk to me about all the other brewery beers. I had to explain I wanted CRESCENT CITY beers. He said oh, here, and showed me a little plastic ad stand with 4 beer options in it. I had their "special" which was the IPA and it literally tasted and smelled like Bourbon Street. That being said, by the time I was done I was actually enjoying it, but was a bit disappointed. No clue about the food...

Pretty standard old school, chain brewpub vibe, near Jackson square, right in the heart of the French quarter. The beer is ok at best and they only had 4 varieties on tap when we were there. Service was decent, but I'm sure it gets a bit dicey when crowded. If this were located just about anywhere else it would struggle to justify its existence, as it is it's about what you'd expect in the most touristy part of the city and the out of touch, lackluster beer is almost a decent option for the area.

Bartenders were the rudest I have ever encountered. New Orleans is more of a PRB and a shot city. Embrace that philosophy and enjoy yourself!

Centrally located in french qt. large bar and dining hall. On a
hot NOLA day, their Hefeweizen will do you right. They also offer a togo window with a couple select drafts

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.
