Creole House, Restaurant & Oyster Bar πŸ†πŸ† A New Orleans attraction and popular food flop.


Creole House Restaurant & Oyster Bar

I’m not sure I heard any positive words from any of those dining at our table. From the initial servings being β€˜tepid’ and asking for the soup to be microwaved to heat it up more, to the not good shrimp and grits and my ok muffuletta. I also tried their fried calamari that I can honestly say was of the worst I have ever left behind. I tried several bites of the tough rings and the crunchy hard tentacles hoping to find something worthy. I likened the calamari to something I might have purchased from the freezer case at the local supermarket.

We sat nearby the grill area being used for oysters, but with the amount of cheese I saw being used I was already not interested in them. Then I saw how long they sat on the service counter without being placed under a heat lamp. I’m glad I didn’t waste and ruin my New Orleans oyster craving here. Now I know why our food was short of being served hot. There was nothing that we ordered that was worthy of a good note.

They have a great location and attractive signage in a popular area of the downtown walk along Canal St. The place was full of patrons and we were asked to wait until our entire party was present before seated. Comments and recommendations from those of us waiting in the rain to go somewhere else should have been heeded.

Certainly nothing worthy of writing about.

  1. Agree in part though the cheesey grits were flavorf and hot plus delish. My oyster po boy had plump oysters and were tasty. As for the muffuleta, the crispy pancetta was a good contrast to the deli meat filling. However, I concur that half the orders at our table arrived cold. Reasonably priced menu.

  2. I’m a lifelong New Orleanian and food is my passion. I’ve never heard of this place. And after your report I see why! I won’t be trying it.
