Camellia Grill Restaurant Review

: Camellia Grill has been a mainstay in New Orleans for so long it could probably rest on its laurels, but it doesn’t. A prime source of burgers, classic breakfasts, zesty chili and other good diner food, the place is iconic to the city. Known for the big personalities of its white jacket-clad waiters, Camellia Grill has service that is as much theater as it is quick and efficient. And if you leave without enjoying a slice of apple pie, grilled right in front of you and topped with sweet vanilla ice cream, you haven’t had the full experience. No alcohol is served.
