Was directed here by locals and did not disappoint. Very fast paced local dive not built to impress but hits the mark for quality food. Chargrilled oysters were excellent, my first. There were no less than 14-15 staffers roaming and shucking so be ready to order quick. No time for great discussions of the palate. Ordered the New Orleans medody... More

Best Oysters in french quarter. if you don't mind waiting on the street in long line, then great. There is no waiting area inside, so they line you up on street until they are ready to sit you. you MUST have your whole group with you when you get to front of the line or they will NOT seat you....

It was clear we needed to stop and grab some oysters here because the line was halfway down the block! Our group of five waited for about 20 minutes and they had a system of taking names, even down the sidewalk. We were sat at the bar within 10 minutes. The shuckers and bar staff were friendly. We had raw,... More

We've traveled to New Orleans several times and this was my first stop at Acme. We loved the char-grilled oysters and the raw were delicious also. It was early evening and the wait was not long and we all really enjoyed the meal.

Service was ok, jambalaya was dry, the acme 10 roast beef po-boy was disappointing. The boo fries were very salty and not cooked enough.

Were able to get here for dinner before it got too crowded. Pricey but no surprise there. Quick nice service. Will not return though - didn't think it was worth the hype w so many choices.

It's worth waiting in line. We order dozen grilled oysters, fish and shrimp po boy, and jambalaya. Oysters were amazing which caused wife and I to fight for last bite, po boy was fresh, and jambalaya was seasoned well. I will recommend this place hands down if you want fresh and delicious food.

We were warned that Acme Oyster House was a "touristy" place and it's location just off Bourbon Street seemed to bolster that. But we just didn't feel like bearing the heat any longer or paying for a cab so we got in line for lunch. The line moved very quickly and we were seated within a few minutes. We were... More
