What you'll do

Mister Gregory's is famous for their French Quarter Shrimp Boils. Enjoy this opportunity to experience it as a VIP, with a small group and Mister Gregory himself preparing your meal. This is a 90 minute dinner and show experience.

The Shrimp Boil Experience begins with a tasting of fresh caught fish from Lake Pontchartrain. Then a local blue crab appetizer, an alligator sausage tasting and a presentation about our wild-caught Gulf shrimp. We prepare the boil in front of you then invite you inside where we present the shrimp, cooked with corn and local sausage, and our special blend of Cajun boil seasonings. Later, we bring out hot towels to clean up and to finish we present a signature dessert and a tasting of New Orleans style chicory cafe au lait.

Through-out the experience we present a special guest performer from the Burlesque, Drag or Cabaret clubs of the French Quarter to entertain you. Please join us for a lovely dinner party, make some new friends and eat the very best shrimp in the world. During the current Covid situation we will be seating every party at their own table.

Other things to note:
BYOB! It is a set menu and dietary restrictions cannot be accommodated. Not suitable for vegans/vegetarians. Late arrivals are considered no shows as we start promptly on time. Please leave your politics at the door.

Perfect first night in NOLA with our adult children! Amazing food & surprise live entertainment (jazz duet) - the other party was a no - show, so we got the pleasure of a private dinner w/chef plus staff & live music!

I want to take my mother here, 100%. The food was incredible as I knew it would be. Despite Covid precautions it was still initmate, and such a great experience. I love how conscious Gregory is of the foods he provides for us, not just Ethically, or from small business point, but as as said Culturally. This is Exactly the kind of experience I want anywhere I go, and who I want to support to keep tradition alive. Spring time for Crawfish is on the bucket list now!

I cannot express enough how FANTASTIC this experience was. It was our last night in NOLA and we defiantly ended on a high note. Be sure to come hungry because there's A LOT of food. Each course was explained on why it was apart of the dinner and where it came from. I also tried multiple items that I had never had before and was not disappointed. We also had a private singer and she was amazing. I wish I could give this experience more than 5 stars!

4 of us went together to this dinner and it was a lot of fun. The talk was interesting and informative and the band was great and surprisingly funny. But the real star of the night was the food. There were a couple of tastings to start with, including an amazing alligator sausage. Then they brought in the shrimp boil. The shrimp were huge and delicious, and there was also tasty corn on the cob, sausage, and mashed potatoes. Overall, it was a fun experience, and we'd do it again.
