Grilled Oysters

Nice small restaurant noted for its grilled oysters and New Orleans style seafood. Serving staff was very good and fast --- food came quickly and was hot when served. Has a limited beer and wine menu and gets very noisy when crowded but overall a nice experience.

Pretty much the same as the one in New Orleans French quarter. Similar menu with a focus on outstanding oysters. Great crawfish when they are in season

Tried the shrimp pop boys and fell in love with the place. Ask for the spicy mayo on it. They got me addicted

The restaurant is located in the Baytown resort area of Sandestin. You have to get a pass at the security gate to enter. It wasn’t crowded for lunch on a Wednesday in the off-season. We have eaten at the New Orleans location and this one does not compare. The dirty rice and gumbo were both lukewarm and the rice was... More

Yummy food and good atmosphere. We got our food quickly and the servers were very nice. Especially with a screaming hungry toddler.

We arrived at a weekday and the host told us to wait for a table outside. So we went to the bar, had a drink and were offered a table inside. I asked her about a table outside, as we said when we arrived. She just commented - and seemed quite angry - that she has not tables outside. At... More

Every time we visit Sandestin, we make it a point to eat (at least once) at Acme Oyster House. We have had the po-boys and the red beans. Truthfully, they are good, but I have had better. Now, the oysters? This is where this place really shines. We can go through dozens of their grilled oysters. They are really excellent... More
