Admittedly, we only went to one Oyster House, so I am giving this 4 stars with no basis for comparison. This is not a 4 star restaurant in NOLA, but it is a 4 star Oyster House in my opinion, or at the least, a 4 star Po Boy. Call it 3.5 if you want, but I am rounding it... More

My partner and I spent about a week in New Orleans and tried to experience as many different types of restaurants in the area as possible. On our list of course, was an Oyster house. We originally had planned to go to Royal Oyster House based on several friends who had been and loved it. However on our way into... More

This was our first taste of New Orleans upon arrival and I couldn't have been happier! Located in the French Quarter, there was about a 20 minute wait but the hostess was attentive and very friendly. We were seated and greeted by our waitress, also very attentive and friendly. We ordered the fried crab claws as an appetizer which were... More

Really? The restaurant must pay tour buses to drop people off at this very mediocre fried seafood place. Lines are always long, and the place in the Quarter has become one only for the tourists. But, the oysters are always good!

The oysters are sumptuous and melt in your mouth, the jambalaya is seasoned to perfection, and the etouffee is cajun goodness on a spoon. Service is punctual, but you will need to get in line early to be seated in this popular eatery.

Lunch time stop - short wait but worth it. Great staff so friendly. The food was great. I had 1/2 dozen raw oysters which were yummy. Next I had a bowl of Crab and Corn Chowder which was rich and tasty. Finally, a Crawfish Po Boy - wow! It was out of this world. My partner had the Roast Beef... More

We were seated immediately for a late lunch. In addition to the oysters, we had boiled crawfish and seafood gumbo. They were both very good. The server was fast and patient with our questions. Awesome lunch!
