Was taken there by my cousins who are New Orleaneans. Really good oysters - including some very tasty baked ones. I also had the seafood gumbo and the shrimp poo boy! yummmy....really good! Overall a very unpretentious place where you can get away from us loud turists and have great food.

Grilled oysters are amazing. I used to play music at a restaurant in California and they had a celebration one year and the owners brought n a selection of raw oysters. This was my first time trying raw oysters and my first time drinking vodka and my first time eating oyster shooters with vodka. These ones at the acme grilled... More

And yes my... More

We visit Acme frequently. The flame broiled oysters are so good. Our last visit we had 2-dozen instead of dinner. They are absolutely the best in all of New Orleans!!!
