Every year we have dined at Poppy's Restaurant to enjoy the food and atmosphere. The service last night was good. Food was over cooked and the price is too expensive.

Short walking distance from our hotel, very scenic, kid friendly (we had our grand babies) We really enjoyed our meal, the kids (30 somethings) liked the Zombie Juice drinks!

This restaurant is located right beside the Riverwalk Outlets and walking distance(around 4 minutes) to the aquarium. It had the most cajun seafood restaurant vibe/atmosphere of all the restaurants we went to, which was cool. Very casual, laid back restaurant. Our waitress was good and service was fast. Even though it was in a touristy area it had more of... More

We had a Groupon for the Crazy Lobster at the riverfront. We've eaten there a couple of times before and are always stuffed when we leave. We got right in and our waiter Glen was friendly, outgoing and efficient. We had the shrimp platter and catfish/shrimp combo. The food was excellent. The Bloody Marys were good and the band was......ok.... More

I came here because of the positive Trip Advisor reviews and I was not disappointed. Situated right on the waterfront, there is an excellent view of the bridge and all the water traffic...barges, tugboats, and other watercraft. I ordered the deep fried shrimp which came with fries and hush puppies. While the food was good, the service from my waiter... More

I struggled with the rating on this one. My husband had alligator bites and crawfish etouffee; I had hush puppies and a shrimp Caesar. The food was excellent, but I don't remember ever having such poor service. The waiter never refilled our drinks, didn't ask if everything was okay and then brought us the bill without even asking if we... More

The snow crabs legs and shrimp boiled in Cajun spices not only tasted good, but after you overcome the realization that you are not going to need silverware, the fun starts. The portion size is large enough to satisfy hunger, so you won't be thinking about what's for dessert. Service was efficient and prompt and prices were well-worth for a... More

This is my first time eating at Poppy's Crazy Lobster bar and grill and my last time! First the hostess was lazy and did not get up to greet us. She took us to our table and she had an attitude the whole time. Then the waitress didn't know how a virgin bloody Mary was made and and kept asking... More

Will was an excellent server. Food was good, large portions. Hard to find but I'm glad we did. Check for a Groupon!

Server friendly - menu choice wide with an obvious leaning towards fish and local specialities - when food arrived enormous helpings for the starters we ordered glad we did not order mains as well. Taste good but nothing special - location good easy to walk to from French Quarter

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
