This place was right on the main road off of St. Charles place. The interior was dimly lit, a lot of wood and very brew pub. There was a live band playing (and could be viewed through open doors on the street) and the place was busy for a Thursday early evening. We chose to sit up top on the balcony (worth it on a warm night). The server was knowledgeable on the brews and very friendly. I had a sampler (will be reviewing from notes). There were only 5 choices (not many) and they were not that great. The food was awesome and for being right in the heart of the French Quarter the price was very reasonable. Definitely worth the time to stop and if you need to eat the food was even better than the beer.

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.
