This place has been here forever and has fantastic New Orleans food, The dressed roast beef poor-boy was rated at least 6 napkins, the fried shrimp and oysters were excellent (the bread was a tad hard). The service was pleasant and fast, though not particularly attentive.

Liuzza's was our last day stop for lunch. We had a local friend take us there. they wait was about 30 min, and when we were seated we found out why. It is tiny. But, when we finally got our food, we discovered that portions there were huge, and all tasted amazing. We had Frenchalletas, the jambalaya, and burgers. We... More

I've always enjoyed a trip to Liuzza's in the past with their frosted 32oz glass cups and friendly service. My most recent visit yielded unexpected results; however. Any restaurant in New Orleans will have slow service, it's just a way of life here so I allot at least two hours from sit down to when I plan to leave. The... More

My wife and I grew up in New Orleans, but we have lived in Oregon for many years. However, we go back to New Orleans frequently to visit family and friends and just to enjoy the city's many attractions. Well, we feel no trip to New Orleans is complete without at least one visit to Liuzza's, which is our favorite... More

I wanted atmosphere and I got a mouthful. The small restaurant was packed to the gills with a boisterous local crowd, both at the bar sipping from beer glasses the size of my head and from the too-close-together tables. I had one of their famous shrimp po-boys on fresh french bread with a side of delicious onion rings dripping with... More

This is a real New Orleans family type of restaurant, one for the locals if you know what I mean. Great fried onion rigs to go with the coldest beer in town. You will not be disappointed if you stop in for a meal here.

This is a great locals' spot: delicious Italian food, big portions, pleasant staff. Especially liked the fettucine Alfredo, fried green tomatoes with shrimp remoulade. This was our favorite meal of the trip.

This is a hands-on family run restaurant that came back better than ever after Katrina, but with the same charm and great food. It's an easy walk from the streetcar. Local history and memorabilia cover the walls and even the tables! They have a great bar and soft drinks are served in huge, frosted glasses. Everything on the menu is... More
