Pat O'Brien's Restaurant Review

: Locals and tourists line up to experience this legendary New Orleans bar and restaurant. It’s the consummate French Quarter nightlife experience, just half a block from Bourbon Street. The flaming fountain on the cozy patio and the industrial strength signature cocktail, the Hurricane (you get to keep the glass as a souvenir), are the main draws. Crawfish cakes are only lightly fried and the garlic-infused sauce adds an extra punch. Traditional dishes, such as the red beans and rice and the jambalaya, can hold their own against those offered at some of the best local Creole spots. And, yes, you should try the deep-fried alligator strips with Creole mustard sauce. The wine selection is decent, but the big attraction here is the aforementioned rum-based Hurricane, and if you favor a little vodka with your rum, ask about the “Rainstorm.” If you want to see one tall chocolate cake, just ask for the aptly named "Big Chocolate Cake."
