This is located just across from the old Jax Brewery in downtown New Orleans. Like most bars in New Orleans, they've got a window where you can pick up a beer to go, or a door to actually enter the place.

Once inside, I ordered the sampler, which included the Pilsner, Weiss, "special" which was an IPA, Black Forest, and Red Stallion. The beer, at best, was mediocre, and not very impressive. If you're going there for good beer, I don't recommend it.

As far as the service, the bartender was really snotty and had an attitude as soon as we showed up. On the other hand, we were sitting at the bar in front of the oyster schucker, and he was incredibly nice. He gave us and anyone else who showed interest in him a free oyster as he was cleaning them, and was really friendly and personable. If it wasn't for him, I'd be rating service much lower.

Crescent City Brewhouse is located on Decatur St and is a nice place to check out if tired of the Bourbon St scene. Average beers, average food, good service. They have 4 house beers with a 5th as the seasonal or special beer of the month. I had the Black Forest and Red Stallion. My wife had the Dunkelweiss. Upstairs bar and balcony with free music downstairs. Would recommend and return.

Easy to find brewpub located in the French Quarter, a few blocks closer to the river from Bourbon Street. Usual brewpub type set up, dark wood all around with kettles located behind the downstairs bar. Also has upstairs seating with a patio.

Over, had the usual stuff on the food menu as most places in New Orleans, creole twist food or seafood. Also have a raw oyster bar located at the first floor bar.

Had 5 beers on tap when I went. Had a pilsner, scotch ale, dark belgian, hoppy red and seasonal Oktoberfest. Tried the red and oktoberfest, both were decent, but not particularly memorable.

I always try and stop here when traveling to New Orleans. Located near the old Jax Brewery, this is one of a handful of places in the Quarter to get a decent beer.

This place is fairly large, with the bar on the main floor and seating on two levels. If at all possible, try to either sit at the bar or get the small patio on the 2nd level that over looks Decatur. Note that they have free jazz bands on most nights.

They offer four standard German inspired beers. These include a hefe, a dunkel, a red & a pilsner. They will also have one special. Note they used to do some pretty good Pale Ales & Ipas, but have not done any post Katrina.

The food is pretty good. I have even hosted small business diners here. Expect to spend about $20 fora more than passable steak, fish dishes or local cuisine. On most nights they also have an oyster shucker.

I’ve found the bartenders to be top notch, the table servers just adequate. This is the south & a tourist town, so expect leisurely service and you will not be disappointed.

Note this last time there was no smoking at all. I’m not sure if this is a new policy, but I appreciated the clean air!
