Come with a big appetite to Deanie’s. The portions are huge. This busy restaurant serves up New Orleans favorites, including a great seafood gumbo, soft shell crabs, oysters and crawfish etoufee.

Just a block away from Bourbon Street, Deanie’s also does a great job with barbequed shrimp. If you’re not from the area, New Orleans barbequed shrimp are made with butter, lemon, paprika and black pepper. I ordered seafood gumbo and barbequed shrimp and wasn’t disappointed.

The waiter suggested ordering a cup rather than a bowl of the gumbo and an appetizer size of the shrimp. The advice was well taken. The “small” order of shrimp, replete with shell and head, were enormous; I couldn’t finish the dish, which was only $10.95. They also serve a terrific Bloody Mary.

Chicken and hamburgers are also on the menu. Garage parking available within two blocks. Also located in Metairie. Service: good. © 2010 Jane Feehan All rights reserved.
