By New Orleans standards this place wasnít all that bad, but if you look hard enough you can do better. Avenue Pub or just hit up the Sidneyís Newstand Liquor store located a few blocks down Decatur St. (towards the French Market and Cafe Du Monde) and buy yourself some beer, put it in a plastic cup and be on your merry way.

December 2010. Visited on a blustery afternoon in December, and it was still warm enough to sit on the balcony. This place offers some solid Germany style lagers along with pretty decent food. Wife had some crabcakes that she devoured with much vigor. My burger was good. The beers were true to style and sturdily made. Bit pricey overall, and they seemed anxious to move us along, but it is New Orleans ... (Brewery #521)

Got dinner and drinks here my first night in a long weekend in New Orleans, and I was happy to get a chance to sample some beers at one of the cityís breweries. The building is awesome; a great restoration in an old building along Decatur Street, which otherwise has a lot of tourist trap spots like Hard Rock and Bubba Gump. There arenít many beers at any given time; they have one year-round brews and generally keep just one seasonal going. I got the 5-beer sampler to try them all along with my German sausage platter. Itís a little expensive for the entrees, but there are a lot of menu options. I was with a buddy whose sister actually had just quit working here and was with us for dinner so we got great service; otherwise, they seemed a little understaffed for a busy night. The door said the kitchen was supposed to close at 10 but it appeared to go to at least 11 or so- seemed pretty loose and easy with how they ran the place, pretty much like every other place in New Orleans. The beer isnít the greatest in the world but the atmosphere is a nice reprieve from the tourist traps around it and itís worth a visit if youíre in the French Quarter.

I agree with several of the other commenters that this place is a bit of a tourist trap. The beer isnít that great and it is a bit overpriced. The food is passable, but not as good as other places throughout the quarter. The fact that it is a bit overpriced doesnít help. On the plus side, it does have a decent ambiance to it and the staff were very friendly. If you want beer, catch a cab to the Bulldog which has a decent selection.

Crescent City Brewhouse opened with much fanfare, ushering in the first brewpub in New Orleans, right at the start of the craft brewing craze. From the start, their beer was fabulous, and the food primo. However, over time theyíve become more of a tourist staple than a beer-drinkerís destination. I suggest the sampler, if anything. The gator bites used to be pretty good, too. Personally, I have a few other choices in the quarter that would surpass this location.

A lot of people hit this place up because they hear itís the only true brewery left in the quarter. That worked on me too a few times when I first moved to the city. If you enjoy beer this place is not for you. While they do brew on site it doesnít seem they put much effort into it. The brewing seems to be more of a gimmick/novelty to bring customers through the door than anything else. They usually have five different brews, none of which are anything special, available on tap. They serve nothing else and charge absurd rates for the beers. The food is average at best but for the prices it should be much better. Just an example - I got a german sausage and sauerkraut meal with some potatos last time and it was nearly 20 dollars for the meal alone. The ingredients probably cost 2 dollars. The markup is wayyy too high! Avoid this place.

I enjoyed a meal at the brewhouse while on vacation in New Orleans. It was a fairly nice establishment in an older building, and had a good-looking brick interior with live jazz music at night. The service was very good and everything was delivered as expected. However, the beer selection was fairly weak for a brewpub, and the beer itself was sub par; I certainly had higher expectations. The food was great, and made the meal, but everything was fairly expensive, which lowers the value of the restaurant. Overall I had a good experience, and would go back under the right circumstances, but with low expectations from the beer.

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.
