2012-03-XX. The beer itself is actually a bit disappointing. It was okay, but a bit bland for my tastes. The schwarzbier was my favorite of the bunch today. I had the Oyster Club sandwich which was quite good. I asked for my sauerkraut on the side since I am not always a fan of sauerkraut, but that was a mistake because it was delicious and I spent half my meal putting it back into the sandwich! Service was decent but unexceptional. We were there for brunch/early lunch and got a good sized group seated after a short wait. I think we just beat the rush. Location is great in the FQ/near the waterfront. Its worth a stop if you are in the neighbourhood but not worth going out of the way for, at least not just for the beer, imho.

Being right in the middle of the most touristy area of the French Quarter might, for most, be a good thing, but for me it was not - because of its location, it seems to accentuate style over substance - the fact that they make their own beer probably draws in a lot of tourists, but for the beer "expert" that can tell their beer is ho-hum, it isnít a big draw - good service, though - a tourist place, what more can really be said?

Nice location with great food. Short distance from French Quarter and TN river. Atmosphere was nice with brewing equipment right behind the bar. Beers are nice for LA though nothing fancy about them. Many could be nice if tweaked a bit. Service is good but always this same corporate feel. Food was delicious. Better to get there in mid afternoon before the place gets packed.

This is the only brewpub in New Orleans (I guess the 2nd, if you count Gordon Biersch) and it is located in the French Quarter. For these reasons alone it is worth stopping by, but that is about it. They serve predominantly German styles. The 2 I tried (the spring bock and dunkel) were ok, nothing special. I didnít try any of the food, but it is your typical NOLA offerings. This place is mostly for tourists, but they do have live music starting around 7pm, so thatís another reason to stop by.

A large terrific restaurant brewpub. Some cool local art on the walls (when we were there, there was a Christian-Voodoo themed bunch of pieces around us very intersting). Check out the neon jellyfish above the bar very cool. Excellent wait staff, good food (our large table shared 6 appies and we all had a main and none of use were disappointed). I was very disappointed that 2 of the 4 beers I tried were heavily tainted by unclean lines. I politely talked about this with our server, and she said sheíd pass it on. Definitely willing to give it another shot if/when we return.

Not impressed at all. People were friendly enough, but when I visited, there were only three beers on tap. Asked for a sampler. Got three beers and the offer to have a dupe of one I liked. Fine. Total was still $8 for 4-3oz samples. Rip-off. Hopefully, their seasonals are in better shape than the daily offerings.

Stopped in on a Thursday evening. Parked several blocks away, as I was just exploring the area. It looked like street parking was available when the streets arenít blocked off. There was a decent blues band playing while I was here and that was enjoyable. It took several minutes to be noticed at the bar, despite it being less than half full. The server didnít know what their special beer on tap was and there wasnít a draft list anywhere I saw that said what it was. Maybe I missed it. The beers were all mediocre. I canít speak to the food, but I was given a taste of their cocktail sauce just for being at the bar. It was quite good and unlike any I had tried previously. My five beer sampler was about $9.50 before tip.

Bare bones, open air brewpub/oysterhouse. The beer is OK, not great. The raw oysters are terrific. Great location in the French Quarter, right down from Central Grocery. If you order oysters, theyíll be fresh, but youíll get the small ones unless you ask for the LARGE ones. Most people like the smaller ones. I like the BIGGIES. If you order them BIG, youíll get them that way for no extra expense. A little smoky. Again, the beer is not the reason to go.
