Great location and value. The food is a step above most casual dining in the French Quarter. The large protions of both the platters and entrées can easily be shared by two. Flavorful, well cooked food. In lieu of bread, each table gets seasoned, boiled potatoes... keep that in mind when choosing a side for your meal. Service was friendly, atmosphere clean and interesting, and if there is a wait, definitely worth it. Would recommend.

Iama Critic Rating - Deanie's Seafood - 2 stars 841 Iberville Street, New Orleans, Louisiana Overall: 5 Star Restaurant Reviews spent a week in New Orleans sampling the best of the Big Easy. Sadly Deanie's Seafood was the worse experience we had, one of the most expensive, and they almost put one of my guests in the hospital. The potatoes were wonderful, but the super expensive seafood was an epic fail. So why do they have high ratings all over the internet? We figure that the good chefs must of had the night off! Proprietor Barbara Chifici is has been nominated for recognition by the American Culinary Federation New Orleans Chapter as one of the ACF's "Best Chefs of Louisiana." In addition Deanie's has 192 Google reviews with a 3.8 average. But 5 Star Restaurant Reviews saw nothing AT ALL worthy of such high marks at Deanie's! Perhaps 5 Star Restaurant Reviews experience at Deanie's Seafood was a fluke, because nothing we had, except the table potatoes, managed to earn even a three star rating. For half the price we would not recommend Deanie's, it was that bad. Table Bread - 4 Stars Instead of table bread Deanie's serves spicy whole red potatoes. Flavor wise, these tiny potatoes blow away any table bread you have ever had. Oh sure, they don't look like much, but these bad boys were filled with seafood boil flavor! And not just on the surface, but soaked deep into the potatoes! They are simply fantastic and the best thing we had at Deanie's! If you want to make these awesome potatoes at home, Chef Iama Critic has the recipe and technique, so check out our 5 Star Restaurant Reviews Facebook page link below to get the recipe. $56.00 Giant Seafood Platter - 1 star and call it horrid The Menu states "A bounty of fresh shrimp, catfish, oysters, two soft-shell crabs and crayfish dressing balls." This entree is intended for two people. The waitress specifically told me the soft shell crab would be 6". That would have taken up half this 12" oval plate! Of all the restaurant dishes we reviewed in New Orleans, this was the worse for it's price! Everything was soaking wet and floating in water, which I drained off the plate before taking the pictures. Apparently the chefs at Deanie's think "broiled" means "boiled". Except for the shrimp tails, nothing was crispy. Instead the catfish was mushy, the crayfish balls were soggy, the soft-shell crab, the GEM of the seafood world, was totally aweful. It had the texture of a rubber skinned turd. The oysters had shriveled to the size of green mussels before the entire entree was served cold. Cold soggy seafood, yum!! But thankfully the shrimp tasted pretty good cold. The entire dish was utterly disappointing and should have been sold for $8.95 each instead of $23 each! In fact it never should have been brought to our table, because it wasn't fit for my dog! Period!!!! Side of Green Beans - 2 Stars The picture says it all. Lots of potential, but when your beans look like this, you can only assume one thing. Deanie's is mixing fresh and old beans. Some beans were crispy and perfect and the shriveled beans right next to it looked and tasted like yesterday's left overs. For an expensive restaurant like Deanie's, this is simply unacceptable. Other Notables: The guests I took to Deanie's came all the way from Tucson, AZ to eat with me for a week in New Orleans. One of my guests is DEATHLY allergic to lemons. We were promised that no lemons or juice would be used in the preparation of our meal. And sure enough, every dish that was delivered to our table had a lemon on it! If she had consumed even a drop of lemon juice she could have ended up in the hospital. Apparently Deanie's doesn't care about anything, not it's food, not it's customers, and not its ridiculous prices. To see 5 Star Restaurant Review's entire pictorial review on Facebook.

Great food, lousy seating and billing procedures that cause conflict and confusion. Very unusually expensive for fried food, but it is good.

Good portions. Adequate service. Food could be seasoned with a spicier New Orleans flavor. The seasoning is mild to non-existent but I guess they don't want to sear the tourist's taste buds. All in all it's a good restaurant and I would recommend it if you want seafood.

We decided to eat here as it was recommended by a local we were talking to. He mentioned the fried platter and said "get one you will have enough for 2". With that in mind and priced at only 17.00 it was a great idea for lunch. The line was insane but moved rather quickly. We ordered the combo platter fried oysters, shrimp and catfish. It was a heaping plate of fried goodness.. very fresh and tasty. Came with coleslaw and fries. It could possibly feed three.
