Seafood
“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 half-shell 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.

    Over 15 min wait time every time we ordered drinks. Empty water glasses. 30 minutes between second course and third course. Waitress barely showed any concern. Very disappointed in the experience.

    The service was amazing! It was my boyfriend’s birthday and we had quite a few different drinks. I absolutely loved our waitress and we had a group of 3 men sing happy birthday to him and they were awesome. Although the food was not great overall, I do recommend the oysters. We had red fish and the cobb salad and they were both below average. Would definitely go back for the drinks and apps though

    We went to Bourbon House to celebrate my birthday and it was an excellent experience! We had the Coolinary three times menu for 45 dollars, with chargrilled oysters, an incredible gazpacho and a delicious pork belly and shrimp on a creamy shishitto pepper base. For dessert we shared the praline brownie and had a bourbon flight and a Manhattan cocktail. Everything was prepared carefully and with fresh ingredients, and our server was knowledgeable, kind and fun. Besides this I got to enjoy the happy birthday song with a singing trio who were simply phenomenal.

    It’s a nice restaurant inside and the service was very good! However both meals were kind of underwhelming compared to other options in the area and I didn’t feel great after. Maybe we just didn’t order the right things or it was an off day. I must say the corn and crab soup was quite good!

    We ordered 2 fish dishes. One was great - the redfish, the sauce was great. The other - gulf fish was awful. We couldn’t eat it. Too fishy, no other flavor to fix the fishiness and it seemed not fully cooked to boot. My husband mentioned something to the waiter, he waived it off and asked if we wanted dessert. Nothing special about this place. Don’t recommend.

    This place has very nice ambiance. Our server was great and attentive. The food is was good but small portions for the price. We got charbroiled oysters which were delish, gumbo was good but very little for $10. I tried the bourbon milk and cookie and both were good and the cookie was warm when served.

    Great place to grab oysters and a quick cocktail at the bar. The dining room experience has declined a bit. The quality of the wait and kitchen staff has dropped since I was there last in 2015. I'm hoping that this is just slow recovery from Covid, but the redfish and shrimp and grits were sub par and the boudin balls were bland. I think bringing your food quality back up to where it used to be will help.

    Should have read the reviews before going. With so many great dining options in such a dense area try somewhere else. Read the other disappointing reviews. They’re spot on. Food was just ok. THEY WERE OUT OF RAW OYSTERS!?!? Everyone else in town seems to have a lot! The restaurant looks higher end-ish but the service was poor. I was really excited because I love bourbon but was left disappointed with the whole experience.

    Gumbo had fresh shrimp and sausage in an authentic roux but if your looking for some flavor that leaves an impression you’ll have to grab the Tabasco. Flatbread was ok, I guess. Waiter suggested a Sauvignon Blanca which turned out to be light and refreshing perfect for a muggy evening. As a side note, the bar was packed on this evening not a seat to be found but in my mind that’s as good a recommendation as any.

    The restaurant is beautiful and the service was amazing. The host greeted us by name and we were promptly seated. We ordered the hamburger and both agreed that it was one of the most delicious meals we have ever had. The hamburger was juicy and full of flavor and the hand-cut fries were light. We had a wonderful lunch with attentive service and a delicious meal.

    Hostess was great, service ok. Food is below average and ridiculously expensive. There are dozens of better options- the night before we went to the very casual Creole House and Oyster Bar and food was three times as good for half as much. Bourbon House is a huge ripoff.
