Place was packed but we got a table in 10 minutes. Perfect oysters of every kind. Can't miss spot in the French Quarter. Fun place to people watch.

Best oysters ever. The flavor of the grilled oysters is absolutely incredible. Make sure this is on your to do list in NOLA.

If you love oysters, then this is definitely your kind of place! Their po boys are somewhat small, but if you stick with the oysters, you'll be impressed.

Had the dozen charbroiled oysters. Way small, overcooked, not very good and wondering why this was $19.99. Also had seafood gumbo (ok), oyster and shrimp po' boy (way too salty) and overpriced also at $15.99 and fries (large plate and very well cooked and only $2.xx). GO somewhere else!!!!

After eating at the delicious halfshell oyster house in Biloxi we traveled to new orleans and though we would try the acme oyster house. I guess it was ok. But i compareed to the halfshell and not even close. The oysters were so small and bland no taste. The service was mediocre. Took about 15 minutes to get waited on... More

The line was so long to get in the place. We had to try it. Worth the wait. Fast service, food was delish! Prices were reasonable for the amount of food you got.

Oh my Goodness!!!! These oysters (and I've tried them all over the world) are to die for!!! There is a line ALWAYS but it is well worth the wait. Service was quick and the place was clean. Food was very good even beyond the oysters.

I ate here over 15 years ago and its still the same. Perhaps the prices have gone up, but it still has what tourists and perhaps the odd local always liked about it. Fresh oysters just out of the shell, "real" New Orleans French Quarter atmosphere, always packed with interesting people and a great name. Can you get the same... More

The place was nice and our waiter was terrific. The food was just okay. I had the soft-shell crab and maybe there wasn't anything wrong with it per se-- it was my first time eating it--but I thought it was pretty terrible. We also had their hush puppies and again I was underwhelmed. I preferred Felix's Restaurant and Oyster Bar... More

Stopped in to the Acme Oyster House with a large group of guys for a Bachelor Party. I sampled a dozen of the fresh oysters and a dozen of the char-grilled oysters. Both were incredible. All of the other food (burgers, Po' boys) was just average compared to other spots in New Orleans. The service was average, and fairly typical... More
