In a nutshell
Small Northshore Area with Charm
City Sports Bar and Grill is my place of choice when I want to eat out. Great atmosphere, the food is really good for the price and its genuine. Everybody that works there is down to earth and receive high marks in their quality to serve. Never, and I mean never have I had a bad meal there. I have eaten in just about every restaurant in this city and City Sports is always my first choice.
Favorite Dish: Ribeye! The burgers have not been a disappointment after 15 visits. Ask how you want the fries and they will deliver.

I didn't know about the website so I was unaware of the ampitheater but I think it would be a great night out watching live theater or music on a warm summer night. The area allows for blankets, lawn chairs and coolers. Check the website (although currently being renovated) for updates when you're in the area.
Dress Code: I would highly suggest casual but bring insect repellant! You are very close the water.

You will almost certainly need a private vehicle to drive yourself to the Northshore. The Causeway Bridge is 24 miles one way, so I shudder to think what a cab or limo would cost, if you could hire one at all. You cannot walk or bike over the bridge. There is no toll to visit Mandeville, but if you want to go back to New Orleans, you have to pay $3. In Mandeville itself, you will need a car to get around; public transportation is non-existent.

There are many shops in the Old Mandeville area which have a wide variety of antiques to explore. Although some of the shops sustained damage during Hurrican Katrina, the area is up and running and welcome visitors. Enjoy a stroll through the shops and various restaurants.

The area from Lakeshore to Labarre and from Galvez to Foy. There have been bike thieves and other types of thieves in the past, so I would advise you be careful and lock up your bikes and hide your valuables.

Favorite thing: If this lake seems long you're right. Being the second biggest saltwater in the United States is no small feat. What's more amazing would be the bridge. When built the 5 mile bridge was the longest in the world. However, now it's just in the top 10.
Still, worth a trip to see it. It's quite the experience. But it'll cost you $2.00 in tolls.
