This is a working brewery where you can order their own brewed beers if you so desire. I didn't try them, but the other patrons seemed pleased with their beers.

The menu offers more than the traditional New Orleans cuisine. It is an eclectic mix of several flavors and styles of cooking. Their beer selection was suberb and the waiter offered suggestions regarding that went well with our meals.
The building itself offers a rich historic past, as it is one of the buildings in New Orleans' original city plan. The new design blends modern style well with remnants of historic New Orleans culture. We even decided to stay for dessert and I had some of the best tiramisu that I've ever eaten. It was as big as the plate! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting New Orleans.

The Brewhouse brews and serves four types of beer (plus a special brew): pilsner, red, black, and wheat. The friendly bartender allowed me to try all four before I decided on Red Stallion, the smoothest of the bunch as I saw it. As I sipped and listened to the smooth jazz music, I watched the bartender expertly pulling beer after beer from the taps (he could fill up to three glasses at once!)
Another man behind the bar was busy shucking oysters. I had a look at the menu (even though I had already eaten) to see what they offered. The dishes - mainly seafood - looked great, and there was a man at the bar next to me eating what looked like a huge and delicious plate of nachos.
After a short while, I broke down and ordered half a dozen oysters ($4.95). They were excellent! Another man at the bar agreed that he had once had very good oysters here. He added that the oysters at the Acme Oyster House--a more famous place for oysters in New Orleans--were not as good, but the sauces that came with them were better. At Crescent, they served the oysters with the traditional cocktail sauce and about six packets of Saltines. Since I like my oysters better than the sauces that accompany them, I was happy that I tried Crescent City!
