Right near the French Quarter, this brewpub is alright, really just middle-of-the-road. The atmosphere is pretty good, they had a live dixieland quartet playing while I was there, and the decor was fun. There is some outdoor seating on the upper deck, which is always a plus in my book.
I was really disappointed by their beer selection, though. There were only four beers on tap when I was there, and none of them really stood out in my mind. I didnít try the food, so I canít comment on that.
Swing by to grab a few more ratings, but donít expect too much from the beers.

Went there for the beer only. Had six samples and a few were not bad. I loved the building and bar.

so, if youíre dying for a beer to walk around with, and you donít want Miller Lite, this is the place for you. But, itís expensive and the beer is only marginally better than macros. skip it.

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.

This is a pretty decent brewpub. They're selection is somewhat limited - 4 regulars: pilsner, weisse, marzen, and dunkel/schwarzbier, and one seasonal: a hefeweizen when I visited. The beers were all decent, with the exception of the weisse beer, which for some reason is brewed with a yeast that produces no banana or clove (this is intentional, and I have no idea why). Food is excellent, a little pricey though. Nice atmosphere, there was a really good jazz trio playing during the dinner hour on both of my visits. Not outstanding, but definitely worth a visit.

This is a great place to go and have a few beers and appetizers. As far as the bar scene, the people are very friendly. Pretty good beers. The restaurant however has slow service and the food (steak dinner) isnít what I had hoped for. They do have a great room upstairs for big parties overlooking the street and river. That part of it was a great time with beer and appetizers when we where there with a wedding party.

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.

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.
