The Oysters are Great... They are Huge!

How could you be a New Orleans, LA restaurant and DON'T serve Louisiana Hot Sauce???? How does that work?? They only have Tabasco.... That is one of the reasons that stopped me from giving them the 5 stars. The other reason is the value is not that great... They are kinda pricey. I highly recommend... read more

Not up to the standards set by the original Acme in New Orleans, which we have enjoyed many times. The seafood gumbo was very watery with little seafood and a lot of rice. The seafood etoufee also had very little seafood, but the sauce was tasty. The staff was attentive and friendly.

We ate here twice on a four night trip. It's that good. The oysters - both raw and chargrilled - are the best I've had. And the bloody mary was a perfect mother's day treat!

I have been coming to Destin for five years straight and I love seafood, this place is a must visit if you love seafood and want somewhere to catch any sporting event at the same time. They offer oysters in pretty much every way imaginable included fried and on a po boy sandwich. I highly recommend trying the crawfish tails... More

Wow! This was the loudest restaurant I have ever been in. Now, it wasn't loud like a busy, crowded, fun, energetic loud... it was loud like people throwing and banging and dropping dishes on purpose, non-stop, over & over & over. I imagine they are supposed to do this & somehow people like it, but honestly, that is mostly what... More

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

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.
