The best I have had. The place is loud and we waited over an hour for a table. It was worth it. Try the Cajun sampler too.

A popular spot for good reason. The chargrilled oysters are almost escargot like in in texture and flavor. Plenty of bread to sop up the cheese, butter and garlic. Fun to watch them being prepared as well - shells on the grill, basting with butter, flames shooting up - its a good show. Good fried shrimp, oyster, crawfish, etc. Limited... More

Ate at this restaurant twice in four days. Returned for the second time because the first time was so good. This place had the best gumbo of anywhere we ate in N.O as well as outstanding crab claws. The back room is much cooler than the front and bar area so if you are cold natured, try to sit up... More

The food was delicious. Gumbo Poopah and Jambalaya were delicious. It's a tourist spot so very busy, lined up past 6:00 pm. Contrary to what others say, you don't need a gun in that neighbourhood and you can walk there safely. My wife and I never felt unsafe, it's right off Bourbon and there's tons of people around.The first four... More

One of my sisters tried the Shrimp Po-Boy the other ordered the Oyster Po-Boy and I tried the Roast Beef Sandwich which was very sloppy but filled with lots of meat and it was cooked perfectly. The sister that ordered the Shrimp Po-Boy thought it was just o.k. and my other sister loved the Oyster Po-Boy so I would say... More

There's always a line at Acme. We got curious and decided to go in. The fried soft shell crabs were crispy and delicious. The gumbo soup had lots of seafood and not too spicy. The seared fish was also very good. The place was a bit noisy but service was very good. Hannah, our wait staff, was very attentive despite... More

This place is great. There will be a wait in line on the street but the line moves fast and the food makes the wait worthwhile.
