Mixed feelings about this place. First, the location is great if your starting point is in the French Quarter, as it is right across from the old Jax Brewery. The service was spot on. And the building itself has a lot of charm, from the courtyard and the balcony, to the main bar and dining room. On the less positive side, the beer was uninspired and was probably meant to cater to the gentler palates of the tourist trade. A pils, weissen, marzen, dark wheat, all were pretty interchangable. No great bargains on the menu, either, although just around the corner you can find a more authentic Po’Boy for $$$’s cheaper. Worth a visit, just so you can form your own opinion.
Food? GOOOOD. It’s New Orelans - the food here is so good its retarded. The beer? Meh. Major suckage. Not even a decent ale in the house. But the staff is great, friendly, and it is touristy, but its a good touristy.

This was a nice brewpub located on the edge of the French Quarter. The food was very good but the beers were subpar. They had the usual generic suspects on tap. This sums up New Orleans, you go for food and atmosphere but not for beer. I recommend stopping by for some food and an ok beer though.
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.
Very nice place, well located, close to everything in the French quarter. Beautiful terrasse, beer is good, although selection is limited. Personnel was very helpful, although, they did not seem to know their beers half as much as they knew the menu. Food was absolutely fantastic. Prices were quite high, though. All in all, a pretty good place, but especially fit for dinner.
I have been to this place twice in both of my trips to New Orleans. I really like the atmosphere, the bartenders are friendly, and the food is excellent. The beers are nothing special though. Still a good place to visit and a nice location.
