Great Food

Great food and service, but take a taxi there - parking was not fun. I had the grilled oysters and seafood pasta followed by the best creme brulle I have had in a while

It was full and Courtney our server was excellent and friendly. I had the charbroiled oysters with a fantastic butter and garlic and Worcestershire Sauce and corn and shrimp bisque. The desserts were also outstanding

we had some friends from Germany in town and we introduced them to raw and charbroiled oysters, it was a high light of their trip. Always a great place for us

We never miss a chance to dine at this restaurant. Our latest visit was not a disappointment! The raw oysters were cool and salty and the chargrilled oysters were perfect. Who can resist soaking up the juices with the crusty French bread? Never a bad meal!

We had lobster/steak and red tail fish meals. Nice courteous staff and the meal was very good. Great seafood restaurant. Don't take reservations allow time for a wait.

Okay, I realize that this Drago's is not in New Orleans, but it's close enough, especially if you've just landed at the airport and are heading across Lake Pontchartrain. We always stop her upon arrival to get our visit to Louisiana going in style. While they have a vast menu, I have only ever had their chicken and Andouille gumbo...and... More

We sat upstairs and there was a larger group that was a bit noisy, but aside from that the food was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and specifically the oysters, to anyone in town.

One item you must order....................fire grilled oysters! OMG this is great. They roast fresh Gulf oysters on the half shell then drench them in garlic butter and cover in parmesan cheese and bring it to the table with French bread for sopping up that delicious garlic butter!!!!! Fantastic!!
