7 reviews of Old Orleans in English
Always make sure that I spend at least one of my meal times here when I visit Manchester.
The food is great, the environment is great, and my Mrs loves the cocktails (I appreciate the funny American beers myself).
The only draw back is that if you go early, and the manager looking guy is on, he seems to be obsessed with filling the crappy seats first. Fortunately though, if you point out he has sat you under a speaker and next to a toilet, he will move you to a big old booth even if its just two of you! Win!
I love this place! My (now) hubby took me here for our first date so it holds some special memories. Good food & I loved being able to write on the tablecloth - we had a good laugh. Nice staff & very friendly but found it a bit over the top at times. Very nice food & big portions to. We don’t go often as it’s a bit expensive but is nice for a treat.
Situated next to the ODEON cinema in the Printworks, Old Orleans is in an ideal spot for a pre/post cinema meal.
When we entered the restaurant, they seated us quickly and gave us a free bowl of popcorn which was a nice touch. The waitress came and served us drinks quickly and pleasantly and our food arrived quite swiftly too.
It’s not the greatest meal I’ve ever had, my blackened chicken was a little on the small side and not particularly spicy, and the chips were obviously oven chips with no effort made to even disguise that. The veg was fairly pleasant though.
They do have some good offers, 2 for one on fajitas, or 2 for one on all main courses if you’ve got cinema tickets (used or un-used) on Sunday-Thurs, because it’s pretty pricey otherwise, at around £10 a main course you’d probably expect something a bit better than what we got.
Would give this 2 1/2 stars if I could, I wouldn’t go here unless I was going to watch a film. The service is good, the food not so much…
Old Orleans is a chain of around 30 restaurants nationwide.
The menu is a mixture of styles including the American South, Creole and Louisiana. Highlights include a selection of burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, southern fried chicken, jambalaya, gumbo, meat loaf, fish, ribs, pastas, salads, steaks and fajitas.
Typically starters cost £3-5, mains £9-15.
I have been to quite a few Old Orleans around the country over the years, and I think the Manchester one is one of the better examples.
Old Orleans is an American Resturant situated in the Printworks Manchester the food at the Old Orleans is really nice and so tasty i always have the bacon burger with sauce and fries and this is only £7 and the servings are massive!! The staff are always busy but friendly enough and the decor as you would expect is brilliant and has a great American Theme if your venturing to the printwork i would recommend a visit to Old Orleans.
Old Orleans is located at the Printworks, I have been here twice now and on both instances I have found both the food and the service to be of a very high standard. I know several friends that have eaten here also and they also agree, this is a good place to eat. As soon as you walk in the staff great you at the door very polite and sit you down, I was worried that we would have to wait as we were in a hurry but we sat straight down. The restaurant was fairly busy but the staff was again quite quick in serving us our drinks and again our food. They menu was quite extensive, there were a couple of things that they were out of but there was a great deal to chose from. The food was delicious my only concern what the cost, it was a little more expensive that I would like to pay. If you are in a hurry to watch a concern and don’t mind paying that little bit extra for your meal then I would definitely recommend going here.
