This is a wonderful step back in time. The staff was friendly and genuine. The oysters & soft shell crab the best. We can't wait to go back.

This is a terrific place for raw oysters and is very much a neighborhood vibe. I did not mention the chargrilled oysters, but like the raw they are excellent and not as buttery as the ACME oyster bar. The Oyster stew is very good but not to be confused with seafood gumbo, its more a stew and has a much... More

On a list of New Orleans top 31 restaurants. Specialize in oysters.Not a lot of tables, and crowd looked like locals. My companion is an oyster aficionado, and loved the large oysters. My shrimp were also very good. This is the place if you like to eat with the locals.

We had a wonderful lunch here in this unique restaurant with tile on the wall from 1949 and original floor tile from 1919. Staff were friendly and helpful. Service was very good. My husband had a oyster loaf and I had the shrimp loaf. We added their char broiled french fries. Wonderful. We would go back in a heartbeat. Great... More

My mom and I ate here on Friday, January 3, 2015. We showed up just as they were opening the doors for dinner. The line was 20 deep and as everyone filed into the restaurant, we secured the final empty table. Woot. The server was in the weeds pretty much right off the bat. They were understaffed but she did... More

Went for the raw oysters. Added the gumbo, and a shrimp loaf. Everything was fresh and full of flavor. If you are following the book titled "Eat Dat", they have the address wrong. They have 4300 Magazine and it's at 4330. It's a narrow store front and easy to miss. We drove by twice, but am really glad we kept... More

Old timey funky but kind of depressing tile and fluorescent atmosphere. Raw oysters are mediocre compared to Northeast/Northwest. Oyster loaf - basically a fried oyster sub with lettuce, tomato, mayo is surprisingly satisfying and is the thing to order. People seem to love it but I don't need to come back.

Seafood like it was served in the 1940's. Great shuckers and wait staff...Small lines to get seated, but worth the wait. Not always open when they should be...call first..Fresh food prepared in the old way...good and plenty. Clean place, great area...Magazine street.

I also had the seafood platter, which was very good. my only complaint was it was supposed to include fried shrimp, but I think they forgot it. but nonetheless there was so much food I had trouble finishing it all anyway! my dad and sister had...

On a recent trip to New Orleans I finally took the time and rode a bus to Casamento's. What a treat! Oysters on the half shell were as fresh as you can get and the oyster stew was wonderful. Not much to look at on the outside but once in it is very clean and the old tile work is... More
