Almost literally stumbled in here from Bourbon Street and sat at the bar. Very friendly staff and great atmosphere, with a view of the parades outside. Ordered charbroiled oysters (amazing) and the spicy crawfish lettuce wraps (to die for). Incredible cocktail list -- had something pink and delicious (think it was a gulf coast martini?) and would recommend that, though other patrons at the bar were having similar success with their cocktail orders. Couldn't have planned this any better, with zero planning. With the many tales of questionable eateries along Bourbon Street, Pier 424 is a gem. Go.
