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.
Bourbon is a central focus at the bar with 200 bourbons on the list. Bourbon House is the perfect place for a specialty cocktail or a straight pour of that hard to find small batch whiskey.

Bourbon flights fun for those liking different brands . They even had Pappy Van Winkle. Excellent food and great waiters. We enjoyed dinner there more than the next night at a famous restaurant. We always plan one night at Bourbon House when in NOLA.

Was there for Thanksgiving with my family.
Renovation next door at the hotel created overpowering smell of paint intermittently throughout our meal which detracted from our experience, would ease have been remedied by closing the door to the hotel, no one cared enough to make that decision.
Meal Service was good enough, although the greeter insisted on seating us in a high traffic area when two similar sized tables were vacant nearby. When I protested the second time after being told that that section was closed and asked for the manager, miraculously the table that I requested was available.
The food was solid, albeit overpriced considering other options in the area. Grab a drink and snack at the bar and move on for dinner would be my recommendation.

We went there for Thanksgiving and were very disappointed. Even though we had a reservation we had to wait 15 minutes. The place is basically a tourist trap that serves substandard food with no special character or charm. Even though the wait staff was pleasant you had to wait for every order placed from a drink, to a fork, to your food. Of course they push dessert which was also disappointing. Would not recommend to others when there are so many great restaurants in New Orleans.

Great food, very flexible with the menu items. However we didn't see our waiter again until it was time for the check. We would have liked refills on our condiments but never got the opportunity to ask. The dessert and drink person was great, very courteous, great service.

We were there on business and ate at Bourbon house many meals The fried oyster sardou for breakfast was delicious as well as beautifully served. The milk punch was over the top tasty.
There was a vegetarian in our group and she was well pleased with the selection.

Very loud and not conducive to a business meeting.

We saw a mouse run through the dining room -- I told the staff about it - they were courteous and comped our dessert but it was pretty obvious that they were used to mice running around.

In 10 years I've been going there , last night was so bad that I'm not sure if I'm going back again.
Food came before the drinks and
Raw oysters were warm and BBQ shrimp was under cooked, hard
It was just terrible, we paid $140 for food and left hungry , couldn't eat that
Very disappointed, no more quality just fast service

I've been to Bourbon House for lunch and dinner, and both times it felt busy but not too crowded or loud. The dining room is beautiful. The bourbon selection and special cocktails are impressive. The bourbon milk punch is so delicious, and the food... I honestly think they have the best chargrilled oysters in the city. The gulf fish with crabmeat and lemon beurre blanc is amazing. They have great service and great chefs!

Great regional food such as pompano served with an excellent sauce and red fish. The barbecue gulf shrimp is the best around. Their crusty and light bread is perfect for enjoying the barbecue sauce. They even give you recipe on a postcard. Our waiter Tom was a delight, a perfect balance of professional efficiency and friendliness. A trip to New Orleans always includes a lunch or dinner at Bourbon House.

We have long been fan's of Dickie Brennan's Steaks, but we decided to give his Bourbon House a try. Since it in the first block of Bourbon Street, it draws a very tourist-heavy crowd, which makes the wait for a table long, even with a reservation. The staff was friendly and service was excellent, as was the food, though the pricing was a little high, no doubt in part to the extra overhead from the location. If I do return, it will be at an off peak time.

We've been here three times, each time we visit New Orleans we make sure to have reservations. We love the food, so many delicious choices, and the bourbon specialty drinks are worth the trip alone. Perfect location, friendly service, and mouth watering food. Not to be missed.

Service was great, the waiter knew the menu well and made great recommendations. Had a great time, the staff had great timing, not rushed, not too slow. Food was very good. Very convenient to our French Quarter Hotel.

Server was highly articulate and personable but did not attend well. (no food check our status check. ) Only saw him at order, delivery and check delivery/pickup. Food was good but outside of the plethora of seafood bar options, felt limited. The meal I chose was excellent but surprising add it was not described as spicy and was pretty spicy.

Great place and location. Table location was perfect and waitstaff was very attentive and accomodating. The bourbon selection is great! Food was excellent and each course was timed perfectly. This place is now on my list everytime I go to NOLA.

We were dining with friends who met us in New Orleans for a few days. Our dinner was marred by slow and spotty service, one of my husbands appetizers never arrived and our waiter just plain disappeared for long long periods of time. It was not a pleasant experience and I was sorry that I recommended it to our friends. I know they did not enjoy their dinners either.
