Can't beat the oyster experience at the Acme!!!

As always, my wife and I ate numerous lunches at the Acme while we were in NOLA. You can't beat the oyster experience, and I love the jambalaya. It's just a complete pleasure...very relaxing, and delicious. We will be back again, and again, and again.

Stopped by for an afternoon snack. Wait wasn't too long and got a seat at the bar. Had the chargrilled oysters which were great and the fried crab claws that were good. Was fun talking to and watching the oyster shuckers. Lots of character in those guys.

We got there at around 6pm. There was a bit of a line but we were seated pretty quickly. Our Server was very good and attentive. The food is nothing special. You can get this pretty much anywhere else you go . The bottom line is that if I was walking past it again and there was not line I... More

Just ok... Was not worth the price...I had fried oysters and I definitely have had better. I went because it was on TV and I kinda wish I hadn't gone. And...the red beans and rice are better at popeyes!

Went here for lunch. Sat at the "bar". Staff was friendly and attentive. Busy place! The charbroiled oysters were delicious! The red beans and rice were also very good. Person dining with me had the oyster poor boy two days in a row, and said it was very good. Casual atmosphere, good for families. Quick lunch for business/conference customers.

The food was amazing! It was crowded and there was a line but well worth it!! We had the chargrilled and raw oysters and they were excellent! Fresh as can be. The chargrilled were seasoned perfect. We also had the boom boom shrimp and everyone enjoyed that. The Rockefeller soup was very tasty. For the money we were highly satisfied.

I ordered the BBQ oysters. They were a bit salty. Overall this was too expensive for the quality. Will not be back.

Excellent fresh seafood with something on the menu for every member of the family. A favorite in the French Quarters so there may be a line, but it's worth the short wait.
