About Bourbon House

“Arguably the best oyster bar of any white tablecloth restaurant in New Orleans” per the Times Picayune, Dickie Brennan’s Bourbon House is all about local seafood. If it’s not in season, you won’t find it on the menu. Enjoy authentic New Orleans dishes and oysters on the halfshell in a lively atmosphere overlooking Bourbon Street.
Dickie Brennan and his culinary team have created an incredible menu of classic New Orleans dishes complemented by new favorites. Signature favorites include Gulf fish on the Halfshell and New Orleans style Barbeque Shrimp.

Wonderful meal and wonderful service. We went for brunch and they had a variety of options for everyone. My husband had the fisherman's breakfast and I had the BBQ shrimp po boy. Delicious. We would definitely go back again.

I was disappointed that the restaurant wasn't serving brunch on Sunday at 11am on New Year's Day, however, the food that we did have was good and our sever, Lee, made our visit a memorable experience. He was awesome. The drinks were a highlight- I enjoyed my bourbon milk punch and my husband had a very tasty bourbon cocktail with chicory and cherry liqueur.

Great food, service, and décor. Wide variety of bourbon, bear, and wine. We had a great New Year's Eve there, but the only thing I didn't enjoy was that the table right next to us was so close that we could listen to them talking.

We were in this evening for New Year's Eve dinner. The gentleman who sat us was incredible! Very friendly and had an old school New Orleans air about him that we really enjoyed. Once seated James and Mary waited on us and both of them were extremely attentive and enjoyable. The food was incredible as well! We would absolutely be back. Great experience.

We had to wait 20 minutes even with a reservation which is irritating. My wife and sister ordered the entrée with crab legs in it and they had no crab in the entrée. They had the crablegs but nothing to crack the crablegs with. When asked for something to crack them with they were told the crab was already in the entrée which both could not find or taste the crab in it. The other entrees we had were good. The service was not as attentive as in years past at the Bourbon House. Usually it is awesome. The wine list is good and the ambiance is also good.

Great food and service. We had Crab Etouffee and the Catfish platter. I had the vegetables instead of the fries with the platter. It was cauliflower cooked with onion. Very good. The Crab Etouffee was great! We also had crab fingers for an appetizer and they were great.

My group of 6 adults had dinner at Bourbon House over the holidays. All I can say is the food was truly subpar and I cannot recommend eating there. Among our group of 20 to 50-year-olds we shared various seafood dishes, a "pork special," a "steak," redfish and tried other appetizers and dishes. The seafood was average; pork special inedible; redfish only ok compared to other restaurants we ate at; steak a very poor choice of meat with crunchy char from the grill on it. No one in our group found the food appetizing. If you like large portions of generically-fried seafood, then this may be your restaurant.

With a party of four, they still found time to sit us a couple minutes early. However, this did not make up for the food. I ordered the gumbo which had a muddy after taste and a fried seafood platter which had cold fries when it arrived at the table.

This place is probably not usually so quiet, but we were there on the day after Christmas. Food was superb. Best spicy shrimp po-boy we've ever had. Definitely order that, if you like po-boys. My husband gave the frozen brandy milk punch 2 thumbs up.

Ok everyone, this place had THE BEST oysters in the French Quarter. The plumpest, juiciest freshest, and I tried them all over. Raw were great, BBQed were outrageously delicious. The bourbon was fun. My son loved his steak. I really loved the bar area, better than the dining room. Recommend the bar for oysters & bourbon. You can order from the menu there. You won't be disappointed.

Went this evening for xmas eve dinner with our daughter. Excellent service, drinks and desserts. However, our meals were all cold and the soup, luke warm. My husband immediately before we left felt ill from his fish. Overall food was such a disappointment for $135 and a $240 bill that included the tip. Had much higher expectations, worst meal on our trip.

Great food, great atmosphere, excellent service. i ordered a side vegetable that was not prepared to the same exacting standard as the rest of the meal, it tasted awful and presentation was appalling. The waitress immediately removed the charge from our bill. This restaurant is $$$ in terms of price. Be prepared for a family of four to drop $200. We had two cocktails, oyster appetizer, three entrees and no dessert.

We usually visit New Orleans in December every year. We first dined at Bourbon House approximately 5 years ago. Since then, we head to Bourbon House on our first night in town. It seems like a good way to start our trip. I love the cauliflower hummus and the pita bread served with it. Of course, the bourbon selection is incredible. I am from KY. So, I appreciate the bourbon selection. We often make it back for a second visit before we leave to return home. The service and ambience is excellent and the food is served as ordered.
