Blogger Reviews of Crescent City Brewhouse

  • Rebecca Gomez Farrell on Feb 08, 2013

    Why, you might ask, are you focusing on dining at night in New Orleans? Isn't the food there good anytime? Of course it is! But one must make distinctions between their blog posts somehow, and with the massive amount of eating we did in New Orleans.

  • gill_bey reviewThe Crescent City Brewery, at first glance, seems to posses a relaxed and more reputable atmosphere than the tacky tourist traps which line the streets of the French Quarter - but do not be deceived. I ordered a house brew (which was neither bad nor extraordinary) and a lunch entree, and my guest did the same. The waiter proceeded to inquire whether we would like either 1) gumbo or 2) a small caesar salad, phrasing and intonating the question in the exact manner that legitimate establishments do when asking whether you'd prefer the soup or salad option with your meal. `Gumbo... or salad... hmmmmm.... Gumbo, I guess.` We received the gumbo, which was very watery. It didn't possess a delicate, fresh taste that one would expect froma gumbo of such consistency... but rather felt like a watered-down, canned preparation. Well... at least it came with the meal... It didn't, of course. My guest and I were charged 4.95 for a small, teacup sized serving of a very unsatisfactory gumbo that we didn't intend to order. The manager was extremely unsympathetic as I described the deceptive manner in which the waiter slipped these additional charges onto our tab. He actually defended the server by explaining that he was `doing his job` by utilizing an `upselling technique` the sort of behavior engaged in by movie theaters and fast food establishments. He never offered to delete the charges from the tab, and refused to remove them when I pointedly made the request. Top establishments succeed and flourish by providing memorable meals, courteous service and reputable management attuned to the concerns of the customer. {DIV}Crescent City Brewery is lacking in all of these, and thus it seems the establishment resorts to balancing it's books with tasteless upselling scams which raised by particular check total by 25%. It isn't merely a bad place to eat, with mediocre fare and uncaring service... you may literally leave feeling victimized, without any means of recourse. Please avoid.

  • kangareaux reviewWe went here to just enjoy the music, relax and have fun. We did not expect our meal to be so delicious! This is a real find for great food in addition to all the fun!!!

  • ChefMozI went to the Crescent City Brew house Memorial weekend with my husband and had a wonderful time. The place was fairly busy with people at the bar and some dining. We decided to just sit at one of the tall tables near the bar for appetizers(raw oysters and baked oysters)and some drinks. My husband ordered the Red Stallion and I had a tall Bloody Mary. It was spicy just as ordered and his beer was great - I'm not even a beer fan.I would definitely go back.

  • Charmaine ARead half the reviews then decided to stop by after shopping. The food and drinks were subpara to say the least. Only good thing about the evening was our waiter. Step up and better rep the Nola!

  • cnelson ︻.Try the IPA. Hoppy without losing the Malt flavor.

    55555 by cnelson ︻.


  • Melinda N.The food is bland&terrible! I used to go for the raspberry wheat ale, but they shortened it by 2ounces&charging the same, which is Crazy. Cuz it's already expensive, so I'm not going back.

    33333 by Laur L.


  • Şakir IÇok popüler bira fabrikası. Rezervasyon yapmazsanız yer zor bulunuyor. Masada oturacaksanız herkes yemek yemek zorunda. Barda oturup sadece bira içip de çıkabilirsiniz.

  • Dan K.I have been eating here for 15 plus years. On this trip had 10 people that ate 8 apps, 10 dinners, lots of beer and mixed drinks total bill $550 including tip. Great value in the quarter.

  • Maggie CFood was good, but portions were small and, in my opinion, overpriced.

    33333 by Maggie C


  • Dave E.Wow yes the mixed red and black beer is good!

    55555 by Dave E.


  • Avery D.All of the beers are great, but for a real treat, get them to mix the Red Stallion and the Black Forest beers. That is my fave. Also, splurge and get the baked brie AND the Southern Crispy Duck.

    55555 by Avery D.


  • John cIf you ge the 4-beer sampler (5 oz each), you can add the seasonal beer to it (five 5 oz. glasses total) for just a dollar more.
