    A perennial favorite of ours. The post-flu menu is slimmed down but solid. Attentive service, professional staff. My only minus was the jambalaya, which was flavorful, but served over fettuccine which didn't really help to deliver the sauce. Overall, give Mr B's a visit.

    Great food and service! This restaurant is a diamond in the rough. Royal Street was once a nice place to retreat to recharge from Bourbon Street. Unfortunately, many storefronts are empty and run down. Sad to see the deterioration of New Orleans:( I visited many times in the past and this was the first time it had a very unsafe vibe. That being said, Mr. B’s was a highlight of our trip. Highly recommend if you are in town.

    A birthday celebration on our visit to NOLA. We had the pork chop and the bacon wrapped shrimp and grits. The pork chop was moist and extremely tender. My husband said it was the best he ever had. The shrimp and grits with red-eye gravy were really good except for some of the bacon was very underdone and chewy. However, the grits were extremely creamy and delicious. We loved it so much, we made a reservation to go back again the following night!

    Three times is NOT a charm….This was the first time I had this experience…. I had to send my redfish back due to being raw inside. I could not even cut with my knife. Well I had to send my second one back for the same reason. I gave up on the fish and ordered a pork chop. Guess what…. It was also raw inside. Not good for pork! I gave up and passed on another entree. I never heard a word or received an apology from management. I have been a loyal customer over the years. I will not be back….better options in NOLA.

    This was a regular stop for me in the 1990s when I lived in New Orleans. Over 25 years later, it’s still fantastic. Entertained 4 for business dinner and service, drinks and food were all so good that I ended up laughing so loud I may have caused a ruckus. My apologies for that. Too many Sazeracs! Will be back every time I’m in NOLA

    The food is grade A. The place itself is usually nice. Our evening was marred by being too close to a point of sale computer where two staff members decided to argue with one another, one of which was our waiter. Our waiter never asked me if I would like another glass of wine, however another staff member finally did. Despite this issue, I had hoped for something sweet to end the meal, but spouse had enough. We paid and left.

    Shocked. Flabbergasted. Worst service at a sit down establishment I’ve ever had. Mr. B’s was recommended to us by a family member who lived in New Orleans, so we expected a delicious meal with good service & a nice atmosphere but that didn’t happen. From the second we sat at our table, the staff did not want us there. One waiter held up menus and gestured to another, neither willing to bring menus or water to our table. One waiter handed us menus hastily, said nothing & walked away. We had to stop him & ask if he was going to be our waiter. He said he & someone else would be our waiter & then left. Minutes later he wandered back & asked about drinks. After our drink order was taken the other waiter walked over & said “so are you ready to order or not?” Nobody had reviewed the menu with us yet. We asked what the fish of the day was & he had to look it up. He informed us “Mahi Mahi & red fish”. We asked what red fish was & he simply said “red fish. It’s red fish”. I was not given a choice of preparation even though there were 2, not were we asked about pork loin doneness gradation. Bread was placed on the table & butter tossed down without a word. The rest of our meal was simply dropped in front of us without explanations or descriptions, & served from the same spot- reaching across our plates every time. This was not a crowded space - we had 3 people at a 4 top in the middle of the dining room with easy access from all sides. Hot towel for bbq shrimp was given only after we asked for the restroom to wash our hands, & took 7 minutes to get. We were checked on twice, water was only refilled when requested, even with empty glasses on the table. The venue was not busy with several empty tables, & ample staff. The same 2 waiters worked the 4 adjacent tables & were clearly more polite & friendly to them. We left severely disappointed, & will never return. The back of the house does a great job, but front of the house ruined a perfectly good meal.
