This well established neighborhood restaurant is so popular it usually has a line out the door and a swarm of hungry customers packed into the bar waiting for a coveted seat. The atmosphere is unassuming and lacks all hints at trying to be chic. Jack Dempsey's is an excellent place for families with children (except for the wait in line). Despite a usual wait it is well worth it. Two of the more popular items are a three part broiled platter combining shrimp, oysters, and broiled fish topped with creamy crabmeat au gratin, and the steak and lobster combo. Though whatever you choose will delight the tastebuds.
I really enjoy this New Orleans classic. It s moderate in it s pricing, and it s decor is inner-city simple . The staff are down home and friendly. For lunch I had the shrimp plate with coleslaw ($9.95), my father had the catfish plate with French fries ($9.95), and my sister had the crab salad ($9.95). The fried dishes were not the least bit greasy, and my sister s salad was just very tasty. This is one of the New Orleans places not to miss, and do try their baked macaroni. RJT
Visited this locally famous spot on recommendation of a wonderful local couple. We got lucky with zero wait time and a good table. While we loved our food, it was a little pricey for the relatively small portions. We were both actually still hungry when we left. Also, the service was, well, less than what we usually enjoy in this great city. Weird hours.
On the bright side, we walked away knowing that no other baked macaroni and cheese in the world compares! YUM........
Y'all got to try dis place! Just the accent of the waitresses is worth it! And Oh MY, if its a birthday! WOO HOO, you are in for a surprise... I dont think I'll ever get that waitresses voice out of my head, LOL! Now, the food IS TO DIE for! They give you MUCH more than anyone could possibly eat... If you've never been, you are missing the best food & waitresses of your LIFE!!!
