Grilled Oysters!

Excellent food. Especially the grilled oysters. Went back the next day to get more! Fresh fish was also very good.

We heard about this restaurant and knew we wanted to try the char-grilled oysters and gumbo... they were both wonderful~! We will definitely eat there again, and would recommend it to all travelers :)

We were excited to eat again at the Acme Oyster and Seafood House during a recent visit to Metairie. The reviews were sounded great and I know that they have received some national recognition for their restaurants. I am sad to say that the food was barely average. We shared a seafood platter. The oysters were small and over cooked--very... More

This was my third time here, and everytime I come to New Orleans I always stay in Metairie so I can eat here. This time I tired the combo I had 1/2 po-boy and a cup of seafood gumbo. My mom and I split the chargrilled oysters. OOOOOOBOYYYYY!!! The oysters are off the chain. The seasoning on the oysters is... More

Before we headed out of NOLA, my wife wanted to eat at Acme Oyster House one more time, so this location is right next to the entrance to the bridge north across Lake Pontchartrain -- which was great, since we didn't have to 'fight' our way to the French Quarter again. :-) Had the chargrilled oysters appetizer again -- you...

Stop here early or beware - the line forms fast as we noticed as we were leaving. We got there after 11 and was seated immediately. Party of 4. Server was very good and provided drinks and discussed specials. Food arrived fast - we ordered Chargrilled Oysters, boo fries and boom boom shrimp. Everything was delicious. Oysters tenders, seasoned to... More
