Our work team decided to have dinner here on one of our evenings out. Chimes is located right at the LSU gates and decent parking opportunities are available out back.
We primarily chose Chimes for its amazingly large beer selection. The food was pretty good too, although the large quantity of fried and stuffed seafood wore on my tummy (and aftertaste) about halfway through the meal. But even though none of us cleaned our plate, a brave few had enough space and enjoyed a pretty impressive bread pudding dessert.
The atmosphere is what you might expect from a casual college joynt, including a large space and a fun diversity of happy patrons. Our 2 servers (trainee and supervisor) were fun, friendly, and welcoming. Afterwards, we drove home through the lovely LSU campus, and made a point to make sure that we come this way again.

One of the best seafood places in the city, but priced more in the pub food range than the white tablecloth range. I prefer the gates of LSU location to the newer Coursey one, but the food is excellent in both. Try the stuffed shrimp (like a fat crabcake with a shrimp inside - yum), the marinated crab claws, or of course, oysters on the half shell. The poboys are also excellent, as is the beer selection.
