Very crowded and noisy place on a Saturday afternoon. Lots of space though. Two bars. Quite limited selection of local beers. Not my favourite.

More of a sports bar/pool bar. Selection used to be world not quite as good. Seem to really concentrate on the local stuff which I applaud. Those coolers just used to be a lot more full of different beers.

Little bit of a locker room type place but not bad overall, real casual, all long wooden tables and such. Oyster bar, yay! Convenient to the end of the St. Charles streetcar.

Stopped in while I was killing time before my flight home. Very much a gritty college bar type of vibe. The good: the draft beers we had were very fresh. Also an above average tap and bottle list. The bad: the service was indifferent at best... seemed more interested in talking to one of the beer reps about their fantasy football teams rather than serving customers. Also, the one bottled beer I had was ridiculously stale. The ugly: the bathroom (a single stall) didn’t have a lock on the door or any toilet paper. Overal, the draft beer was fine but there were major issues with everything else.

OK so I’ve been here before many times and just went back so I thought it was time to do a review. The place is pretty cool. Kind of trashy looking but a nice beer selection. People say they have the biggest beer selection in town but I’m not so sure. I think the Bulldog may have them beat. The food was pretty kick ass we had some oysters. I had a Abita Amber which tasted a bit off. I know that particular beer sells well so I pretty sure it wasn’t an old keg but I do question the draught lines. Overall a great place for college kids looking for good beer. But I’m no longer a college kid so hmmm.

Went to this place on the St. Charles trolley on a sunny afternoon. Only a few people in the place when we got there. Fairly dark and roadhouse like atmosphere. Lots of games, TVs, tables, bar space, food area, etc. They had several banks of taps with a decent selection of local, regional, macros and imports. I shared a ’gator sausage sandwich and it was ok. Most of the beer was pretty good except one line apparently hadn’t been properly handled and was totally dominated by bleach. Maybe it was the glass. Prices and service were reasonable.

Love this place. The caricatures, the tremendous beer selection, the crowd, and the laid back atmosphere make this one of the best bars in New Orleans.

Located in New Orleans where St. Charles and Carrollton meet, Cooter Brown’s has an amazing selection of beer. The choice is overwhelming and comprehensive. The food is average bar food and I’ve been amused at the cooks blasting death metal in their open kitchen. Pretty loud when the place is full, it’s definitely better for enjoying the brew than having an in depth conversation.

Ah, Cooter Brown’s. I’ve been drinking in this joint for almost three decades. What was once a dirty, divey beer bar, has become a respectable, clean beer bar, with loads of widescreen TVs for sports action. The draft selection is unparalleled in New Orleans, as well as their absurd level of bottled brews. The menu is pretty much unlimited. I highly recommend the local brew, but the sky’s the limit with these guys. Food is not what it used to be (read cheese fries) but it’s still above par as far as bar fare goes.

I recently started going to Cooter Brown’s for football gamedays. As someone who enjoys good beer this place is the cream of the crop when it comes to sports bars. They have over 30 taps of local, domestic, and international beers, as well as hundreds of bottles from around the world. The service is great considering the usual large crowds and the food menu offers a nice variety of items with some east coast flair. The oysters are also delicious and reasonably priced.
