Eat. Any questions?
This French Quarter, gay-owned and operated, Creole restaurant offers guests a intimate and low-key setting. The menu offers so many great Southern dishes that making a selection could be a challenge. They also have a BYOB policy.

      Didn't hate entirely...there just isn't a in-between option
      The staff was very friendly and attentive, but I wasn't very impressed with the food. The shrimp and crab fettuccine was good even though there were some crab claws in it. The skin on my fried chicken was too hard. Didn't much care for the "garlic" mashed potatoes or baked mac and cheese

      food overshadowed.
      by the bad bad bad service. being drag queen witty, offending in a way that doesn't come off as mean, is a skill that the boy waiting tables did not have. Walk in. look around. no "please be seated" sign. confused. yelled at for not sitting. waited 5 minutes for a menu. 10 for an iced tea. 10 more to order. ordered. most food fine. burger overdone. i ordered m/r and came m/w. they offered to make an new one but by that time i was completely over the place and told them to feed it to the waiter. He looked like he needed the food. it was my birthday.

      Wonderful food here & reasonably priced
      We eat here often. It's great. Friendly gay staff and lots of local specialties on the menu. Saturday and Sunday brunches are super, and the daily menu is interesting as well. The food is always good, and sometimes incredibly good :-) Try the Creole stuffed, roasted bell pepper and the Fried Green Tomatoes. Locals come here too-- so that tells you something.

      MUCH better than expected!
      Very conveniently located.. Our waiter was super sweet and dealt well with our large group. The food was actually excellent! I'm not sure why, but I wasn't expecting such a great experience. Highly recommended!!

      Good food; great price
      Visiting the French Quarter and looking for a quick place to eat, we stumbled upon Eat. Upon first glance, we thought it might be too expensive/slow for a quick meal before the theater. However, we had great service and a great meal (especially the gumbo) at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

      Great inexpensive food near the bars
      EAT, which opened about a year ago, has great inexpensive food and is near the bar scene. We try to hit it for lunch or dinner every time we're in town. Portions are large. Try the shrimp & grits.
