I have been a LOYAL Coop's fan since 1993 when I first stumbled in off the street, met Faye (French Quarter legend bartender) and had one of my best New Orleans lunches ever. I return to New Orleans at least twice a year and always eat there 2 or more times. Over the years I have sent hundreds (maybe more) of friends and my customers there. I was there yesterday......Tuesday March 11th 2013 and as always walked in and sat at the bar but this time things were a little different. I was served a full plate of major, nasty attitude from some b***h waitress about waiting to be seated and not seeing the sign I walked right by. I left and will NEVER return. NEVER! YES......it is that easy to lose a loyal 20+ year patron. Just as well - the food isn't nearly what it once was. Earlier in the week for lunch I had cold beans and rice with burned sausage (I didn't complain). There are simply far too many good restaurants in New Orleans to deal with being treated like s**t at Coop's.

It's busy and loud, but OMG - it's AWESOME!!! This place has the best Jambalaya I've ever had. \r \r We never experienced anything like what one of the previous posters said - the wait/serving staff were very nice, and they were pretty fast to get us seated. We did have a wait, but COME ON!!! It's NOLA! You're going to wait for good food! We only waited about 5-10 minutes to get in, and as soon as a seat cleared, they were cleaning it to get it ready for the next person.\r \r ALSO - the Margarita's have the MOST BANG for your buck! The taste is awesome, and they use LOTS of liquor. :)\r \r We will be going to go back there every time we're in town. \r

My family and I attempted to dine at Coop's Place tonight after reading such wonderful Citysearch reviews. Unfortunately the front of house was obnoxious and potentially even racist. She asked us to wait outside in 27 degree weather and was completely unwilling to accommodate us in these weather conditions politely. I understand that a restaurant might have a first come, first served policy. But it is unacceptable to either a) not allow people to wait at the bar for a table or b) provide a buzzer or take a telephone number so you can notify the party when a table is available. If New Orleans wants to really put its face on the culinary map, it'll need to change it's front of house service immediately. The food is great, but the service is sub-par.

I'm not disappointed when I go to Coop's because I don't have high expectations. It's a hole in the wall. The food is good. The best BLT I've ever had. I love their seasoned french fries. The gumbo is super spicy and loaded with seafood. It's just good food. Don't expect great service. It's primarily a bar, so 21 and up only. Coop's is 100% a local hangout. They serve food til midnight. I reccomend it.

Seven of us were in New Orleans this past four days for the French Quarter Festival. One of our group had never been to N.O. and had read about Coop's on the internet. When we arrived, we found a reasonable waiting line, but no one was taking names for seating. Actually, an altercation almost ensued because of this. Once inside, we ordered a round of drinks and placed our orders. Several ordered the ""Taste Plate"", as I did. After, what seemed to be a long time, salads and gumbo arrived. The gumbo was barely warm. Our meals began to arrive and my red beans and rice were warm, but the other items were cold. I called to the waiter and asked if he would warm up my plate in the microwave because of it being cold; he said they didn't have a microwave and it would be awhile. About 10 minutes later, the waiter returned.....the meal now looked really dried out, the waiter said he had placed it in the broiler and to be careful as the plate was very hot. The plate was hot, but nothing that had been cold before was any warmer. We didn't see the waiter again until he presented a bill for $161 which included a 20% gratuity. I called to him and told him I would only pay for the gumbo. He applied an $11 credit, recalculated his 20% and dropped the bill on the table. No apologies, no concern that we were less than pleased, no visit to our table during the course of the meal to ask if our meal was satisfactory or if we wanted another round of drinks, nothing! In my opinion Coop's failed the all of the basics, except for being able to apply an accurate 20% gratuity.

This tiny restaurant is about as basic as it gets. You stand around and hope a table will open up, and peruse the menu on the chalkboard while you wait. By the time you sit down you probably know what you're going to get. Service is sketchy - while our waitress was extremely nice, she was also extremely busy, and we had to wait a while before placing our drink order. Drinks were stiff, and food came quickly. The jambalaya took my breath away, and my friend's seafood gumbo was just as good. Fried chicken and red beans 'n rice also got raves. Definitely a place worth experiencing, but those who prefer fine dining of the white tablecloth and tuxedo'd wait staff variety will likely hate it.

Some places are just restaurants/bars -- not ""five-star"" restaurants, not ""haute cuisine"" restaurants, but just ""good food"" restaurants. Coop's Place is one of these. The door hangs askew. The cobwebs hang plenty. Stella, the cat, hangs around. The food? Well, it ""hangs ten""!\r Creole or Cajun, you can sample it here, tampered with just enough to make it unique and exceptional. The fried chicken and red beans/rice is awesome. The sampler platter is exceptional. The drinks are authentic and ample in alcohol.\r Don't come here for the repuatation, come here for the food. The dinginess will ameliorate the former, but nothing can diminish the latter.\r

It's what the locals say and they mean it. It wasn't the cleanest place but the food was simmering with flavor. Make sure to ask what food is best what day of the week. Yes, New Orleans has a general menu they follow in all restaurants. This place was packed and for goood reason I went back three times that week. Red Beans and Rice, Gumbo and the Cajun Seafood Pasta were great. Cheap too. Definetly a do if your not a ""clean snob"".
