I'd definitely eat here again

Oysters on the half shell were good. Jambalaya was a little too dry but tasty. Red beans and rice were really good. oyster and shrimp po' boy was very good. Gumbo was delicious! I would go back in a heartbeat.

There was a line outside to get inside on a Friday at noon. Was able to get a spot at the bar right away. The atmosphere is nothing special. Just a old school bar with tables. The servers are nice and give the place a good vibe. Had the broiled oysters which were excellent. Although definitely not healthy because they... More

I do not understand the long lines to get into this place. On our first visit to NOLA 2 years ago, we kept seeing lines but never got to try it. On our second visit December 2014, we made it a point to go there and were completely unimpressed. The food is bland. Husband said Oysters were nothing special. What... More

We were in town on business and went along with some coworkers for lunch after a meeting after they recommended it and I can say I was not disappointed. It's in the French Quarter just off Bourbon street so it has the atmosphere of a real Southern seafood joint. We ordered about 6 trays of fresh oysters, 3 trays of... More

Despite my better judgement I listened to some friends and we went to this restaurant. Sure it was good, but not New Orleans good. There are so many other places to eat at in NOLA. Dont waste your time.

Boy this is a tough review. Awesome and terrible in one sitting. I visit the place every time I'm in New Orleans. Until this visit it's been consistently terrific. I came Sunday at 11am just when then opened for lunch and sat at the bar. I had a half dozen chargrilled oysters and they were wonderful. Fresh, delicious and the... More

I am from Europe, and have tried Oysters in USA for several times, but I couldn't find decent, fresh oysters with a taste. Well, finally I have found a place were I could go any time for oysters. Only minus is that you have to wait for at least 30 min to get a table, but I know now why.... More

Visited here for the Char-broiled oysters. Delicious, but not any better than across the street at Felix's.
