I visited while in New Orleans. Small but tastey selection of beers. Good food and a really nice room. The staff was pleasant if not the most informed. It is worth a stop if you are down in the French Quarter, and you can walk around town with a beer if you want.

Located near the French quarter. We went on a Friday night where a jazz band was playing so it was unbeilevably loud. They only had 5 beers. Oddly itís September and their seasonal was a wheat beer. The server knew nothing about the beers. He thought the flavor profile of a wheat beer was extra hoppy. The po boy was bland. This is a corporate Brewpub for the tourists.

Nice New Orleans local brewpub. Their in-house beers are pretty good, and they have a "seasonal" that changes every month, so you can go in and get their beer sampler and theyíll bring you their four year-íround beers and their special. Nice waitstaff and excellent New Orleans style food. Their beer was good enough for me to wish they bottled, but they do offer growlers as consolation.

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.
