"Dickie Brennan's elegant seafood-centric restaurant is proof-positive that you can get good food on Bourbon Street. The place is all New Orleans, from its lacy, wrought-iron balcony seating to its large French windows overlooking the famous street below." USA Today

"55 Best Bourbon Bars in the Country” Bourbon Review 

"A true New Orleanian knows better than to mess with a good thing. Get things rolling here with a frozen bourbon-and-milk punch and a platter of fried eggplant or oysters (choose from Rockefeller, Bienville or Fonseca), then tuck in your napkin and try the barbecued shrimp and soft-shelled crab…” Esquire Magazine 

“Arguably the best oyster bar of any white tablecloth restaurant in New Orleans” Times Picayune 

New Orleans “Hotspot” US Weekly 

“If you’re up for a more casual experience, belly up to the oyster bar at Bourbon House and slurp down a dozen fresh-shucked beauties washed down with a fizzy local beer or the house specialty cocktail, a frozen bourbon milk punch topped with a sprinkle of nutmeg. Located mere feet away from Bourbon Street’s high-octane chaos, the room’s huge windows make this raw bar one of the best people watching perches in the city.” New York Times 

“…the fried seafood platter is the best in town and beautiful to behold. The pieces are large, golden brown, hot, fresh, fried to order and seasoned nicely. The stuffed deviled crab is the best of its kind.” New Orleans CityBusiness 

The "Brennan touch shines" at this "worth-the-price" French Quarter seafooder where "local classics" and "plump" Louisiana oysters from the "grand" raw bar meet arguably the "best bourbon selection in town" (including an "amazing" frozen milk punch); large windows provide a civilized "view of the nightlife" outside while the "elegant" interior hosts a "festive atmosphere" of its own with "flirting" shuckers "always good for a smile" and servers who "fulfill your every whim."
