Excellent!! We wanted seafood and this restaurant was recommended to us from the hotel staff where we were staying. All I can say is Excellent. Great Food, Fast Service, and Very Friendly. We had chargrilled oysters and fried shrimp, but every dish coming out of the kitchen looked very good. Next time We're in Metairie or the French Quarter we... More

Never tried grilled oysters before and not really an oyster fan until now. The grilled oysters here were SO GOOD!!! Butter, garlic, parmesan cheese and cooked just ever so lightly. The flavor was outstanding. Can't wait to go back for more

Great food, friendly, fast service. loved the music and the location. They also have one in the French quarter but our hotel was nearest this one. You will not eat all that is on your plate so, get a doggy bag. we had such a wonderful time.

This was right by the hotel. Oysters were good, and was the sampling platter my wife got. Service was outstanding, prices were fair for what we received.

It's Jazz Fest week in New Orleans so we arrived at 5:30 pm to beat the crowd! We had a table in minutes after a quick drink from the bar. There were a total of 6 of us -- four high school classmates reuniting after many years. We had an unbelievable wait staff and enlisted the help of bus boys... More

Authentic New Orleans poboys that never disappoint me. I usually get the hot sausage poboy but decided on fried shrimp this time and it was awesome. Service was fast and courteous .

I love Acme Oyster House in Metairie. The food is excellent, the service reliable, and the atmosphere is always lively and fun.

The oysters are reasonably priced and DELICIOUS, and the seafood entrees arent too bad either. I had... More
