Siri directed us to bbq oysters and we found Dragos inside the Hilton. We were met with tantalizing aromas of garlic and seared meats as we entered the restaurant . Our food was very good albeit pricey. Highly recommend the oysters. Cooked over flames slathered in butter, garlic and Parmesan cheese. Yummmmmmm!!

Stopped by for lunch. Got the 1/2 stuffed lobster. It was delicious and the meat was easy to get to. BF got the oyster po-boy-when at Drago's, get oysters. Both meals were really good.

I've eaten here before and their grilled oysters are what makes this place famous. Last night I ventured deeper into the menu and the 4 of us ordered lobsters. I ordered the stud lobster which is about 2.5lbs. I returned two of them because they smelled of ammonia which is an indication that the lobsters were decomposing before cooking. Lobsters... More

You can't get fresher than from the waters just down the road. I stayed in NOLA for 3 nights. For 2 dinners, we went to Drago's in Metairie and if we had more dinners, we probably would have gone back. 24 oysters later, mixed in with a great atomsphere and wonderful staff, we will be going back if we go...

My wife and I were taken to eat here by some business associates. The food and service was excellent. The place was busy and steaming with the smell of fresh seafood. The best part was watching the cooks put the butter and garlic on oysters straight on the Barbecue. The flames were a foot high and the taste of their... More

Chargrilled oysters were amazing! Three of us ordered stuffed lobster. Wow. Delicious. Gumbo was good and the chicken and pasta was great. Great splurge with the girls to kick off our first night in new Orleans.

Seven of us had 5 dozen chargrilled oysters and then lunch. It's really hard not to eat just the oysters, but the chicken and andouille gumbo is great, too. The fried catfish is deliciously done and not greasy at all. Many have tried to copy the oysters but none can quite pull it off like Drago's. And the Metairie location... More

Wes alright but the shrimp and grits was a little too spicy and I'm from here. Not the best waiter and did not have the patience with us

We ate lunch at Drago's over the weekend. Lunch. Their calling card is the grilled oysters and they are very good. $20 for a dozen. The luncheon menu is average and extremely expensive. Two of us ate there: one beer, cup of gumbo, half a po boy sandwich, crab meat salad with limp soggy lettuce: so with tip over $60....... More
