I always look for local dives, but a friend took me to Drago's. I'll be back. Thankfully their atmosphere is theirs. They didn't mind my ratty shorts and sneakers.

Anyway we got of course the famous char grilled oysters, which I... More

Cannot say enough about the fun atmosphere and delicious fresh seafood. Redfish stuffed with crabmeat and a lobster salad, of course after an amazing, dozen, tender charbroiled oysters

Drago's is great Seafood, and the amazing garlic butter they baste their seafood with has made it around the corner to Drago's FireHouse Burgers. My 16yr old son devoured the Grilled Cheese burger with smoky BBQ sauce on it. My daughter and I split a burger. The garlic fries were enough for all three of us. A friend didn't like... More

Being locals in New Orleans you see a lot of restaurants come and go. You see trends that also fade fast. But Drago's is one of the special places in New Orleans. It's the place that locals go when they want the best seafood and the original char-broiled oysters! We always take out of town guests to enjoy a dinner... More

After picking up my friend at the airport in New Orleans. We had time for lunch before we headed north to a silent retreat for men. My wife suggested this restaurant from a past experience. She nailed it. Although it had been sometime since she had visited there, her description and great experience is still valid. Of course there are... More

Well-known and deservedly so. Walked in for a Thursday lunch a little after 1. No wait. Dark interior. Expert waitstaff. No summer job stuff here. Started with the chargrilled oysters. Delicious. Watch them prepare them...they set 'em on fire! Had the mixed fried oysters/shrimp platter. Not fine dining; just FINE food. My wife had a good grilled shrimp salad. Excellent... More
