New Orleans: Street View

Great little place on 4330 Magazine St. since 1919 for seafood; charbroiled oysters and their Oyster Loaf. Prices are fair but they do not accept credit cards so be prepared with cash.

I'll start by saying - the food is wonderful! Very much worth it. Gluten-free fried seafood - there aren't many, if any, other places in NOLA that offer it. Having said that - the rest of the visit was, let's say, interesting. There is the front of the restaurant, then the back. You're supposed to walk through the front area... More

This is a great local spot for lunch. The grilled oysters are better than dragos and the shrimp and oyster lunches were great. Not at all fancy, just good food at a fair price.

Had the grill oyster which were to dye for! Also the oyster poor boy that was packed with juicy bifolds. Nice trolley ride from the quarter, down on naplolian some six short blocks. High energy level in neighborhood eatery, everything very good.

For starters, this little place has what you are looking for when visiting NOLA. Flavor, good service, great value. The seafood gumbo was easily the best gumbo I've ever experienced and possibly the best dish I tasted in NOLA. Simply wonderful! The char-grilled oysters were TO DIE FOR! You will not regret Casamento's.

Service not great but that is nothing new. Food was good but not as good as we remembered. We had forgotten that credit cards were not accepted; be aware of this if you go. Also be aware that you will not be seated if your entire party has not made it in the door yet. Three of the four of... More

This is the one place to go for an oyster loaf in New Orleans – all other places are just copies. Excellent oysters perfectly prepared, on just the right bread. You can dress the sandwich, but this takes way from the best oysters in New Orleans. They also serve them raw; the ideal meal is a raw as an appetizer... More

This old, well established restaurant's owners came to New Orleans from Sicily years ago, and built this restaurant out of tile. While it can be noisy, Casamento's has been my favorite for oysters for over 40 years. They now have expanded the menu to include other seafood. To get to the restroom, one has to go through the kitchen-which is... More

Whenever I'm in this part of town I cannot pass this up. I love that I can always get the same amazing sandwich with the same amazing fries and an ice cold beer with the cool little glass. If you aren't from here and want some "real" New Orleans, you should stop in here.
