7 Happy Hours to Know

Every day of the week you can find an authentic atmosphere, inventive craft cocktails and delicious deals at welcoming restaurants around the Northshore. From Louisiana regional specialties to juicy burgers, our cuisine and cocktails combine to create a unique happy hour for everyone. Cheers!


Don’s Seafood, Covington

Fresh oysters harvested straight from the Gulf of Mexico are a Louisiana tradition, and whether you prefer raw on the half shell or charbroiled with butter, garlic, and parmesan, you'll want to go ahead and order the dozen. Don’s Seafood Hut and Oyster Bar in Covington offers a scrumptious deal with ½ off their charbroiled and original "jacked-up" oysters (brimming with garlic butter, bacon and jalapeno) from 5-9 p.m. every Monday for dining in only. Don's sweet deal gets even sweeter as you sip on two frozen margaritas for the price of one.  


Tacos and Beer, Slidell

Slidell's Tacos and Beer is the local hot spot for Taco-Tuesdays, where family and friends enjoy their favorite tacos for just $1 a piece. Whether you're having one or four, it's the ultimate happy hour as the great deal continues with a $2 Miller High Life to swig. The happy atmosphere features detailed murals reminiscent of Mexico and picnic tables that decorate the downtown sidewalks. 


St Ann Wine Bar, Mandeville


Sip into summer with Wine Wednesday at St Ann Wine Bar. Deals are hot and drinks are cold with $2 off all wine by the glass and $1 off beer. Splurge on your favorite cocktail craving with $5 off Crown Royal, Titos, and other specialty drinks. Delight your palette further with 1/2 priced tasty appetizers such as Ying Yang Hummus and Hawaiian Pork Sliders.





Bistro Byronz, Mandeville


Owned and operated by restauranteur Rob Landry, Bistro Byronz brings the philosophy that "homemade is good" to every dish and cocktail served. The local favorite defines happy hour every day of the workweek from 3:30-6:30 PM with deals on tasty cocktails, bottled and draft beers, and flavorful wines. The deals aren't just for sipping, they're for munching too with small plates of delectable dishes for the tasting. 


Keith Young’s Steak House, Madisonville

Locally owned, Keith Young's Steak House of Madisonville is dedicated to providing excellence in fine dining, serving quality steaks and crafted cocktail favorites. Friday night dinners call for ambiance and exquisite dishes, which this steakhouse executes flawlessly with a lobster special to accompany perfectly seasoned steaks. Dine in for an early dinner between 5-6:30 pm to pair your meal with $5 cosmopolitans or an old-fashioned.



Meribo Pizza, Covington

Saturdays on the Northshore are quite eventful with live concerts, theater productions, and festivals that make finding a simple, delicious dinner a must on the agenda. Meribo Pizza in Covington checks that box from 3-6pm with half-price specialty pizzas in a fresh and family-friendly locale. The half-off doesn’t end with the pizzas, whether your preferred beverage is wine, beer, or a cocktail, Meribo's got you covered!
