Entrée Range

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in or immediately around the resort, but it seems to have declined a little over the past decade. The Brennan family is still intimately involved with every aspect of the menu, but both quality and presentation decline between visits from the New Orleans crew. Servers, including actual Southerners and even a smattering of Louisiana natives, exude a laid-back (sometimes too laid-back), gracious attitude most of the time but have been known to get a little testy and impatient during the restaurant’s busy times. This is a dining experience best suited to adults. Add live jazz to the mix (the zydeco brunch is especially fun), and, all things considered, you have one of Disneyland’s better dining experiences. For a quick breakfast after 8 a.m., the sugar-dusted beignets and chicory coffee from the adjoining quick-service counter can’t be beat. The Sunday Brunch Fest menu (featuring bananas Foster French toast and Cajun omelets) is offered every Sunday morning 10 a.m.–3 p.m., accompanied by a made-to-order Bloody Mary bar and table-side card tricks.

Setting and Atmosphere

Take a step back in time and space to the 19th-century French Quarter of New Orleans. Almost half the seating area is an open-air courtyard surrounded by wrought iron, hanging ferns, and milled hardwood. Above a small stage where live jazz plays daily, there’s a pounded-copper ceiling; to stage left is a beautiful enamel-finished grand piano. You can people-watch from a balcony dining area, but no matter where you sit, you’re going to enjoy the ambience and music.

House Specialties

Gumbo Ya-Ya, blackened fish, and New York steak with brandy-peppercorn sauce.

Other Recommendations

Barbecue shrimp and grits, grilled filet mignon medallions, and pasta jambalaya are all good.
