French Quarter suggestions with 4 year old

We're coming into NO on Thursday night and staying in the French Quarter. My original thought was to get dinner at Mandina's, but now I think that would be better on Friday night. So I'm looking for a place in the Quarter we could preferably walk to, we're staying at Iberville and Dauphine. We have a 4 year old and my mother in law with us, so I feel like fancy places like Galatoire's are out, but I need a place that adults will be happy as well. I thought briefly about Luke's, but we'd have to get back in the car to get over there and I'm trying to avoid that.

Appreciate any suggestions, thanks!

Mandina's Restaurant
3800 Canal St, New Orleans, LA 70119

  1. check out the menu at the Red Fish Grill. i have been a few times and enjoy the food.

    1. GW Fins and Dominica may be good and at a reasonable walking distance. Down a tier would be Deanie's, Felix's and Acme.

      1. Remoulade is a good bet with children. It is pretty 'touristy', but items fro Arnaud's menu are often available, so the food is markedly better than an average FQ family restaurant.

        1. Bourbon House. It is right there at Iberville and Bourbon and having been there with cranky toddlers on three occasions the staff was accomodating, the menu flexible and the food good. Might be there Friday myself.

          1. How late? If you wanted to go to Galatoire's, I'd say go. it's not an adult only crowd by any means from my observation...Unless you wanted something more casual?

            Napoleon House isn't too far:
