Oysters and Shrimp

Very good! Oysters - whether raw or baked are great. Shrimp is probably the best item on the menu but the menu is worth exploring. Several combo dinners that allow you to try a little of everything. One hidden gem on the menu is shrimp fried rice. Prob some of the best around. Good family... read more

Ordered the oysters on the half shell and they were so fresh and delicious! Also got the fish sandwich -- the fish was nice and crispy on the outside, tender and flaky on the inside and moist, but not greasy at all -- just right. Also, the bread that the sandwich is on was actually quite noteworthy -- usually the... More

You have to try the Buffalo shrimp. Panko friend with a secret sauce is amazing! The staff is friendly, kind of an asian feel. Haven't really had anything else but I've heard they oysters are good.

Several years ago while visiting my sister, she took me to the Oyster Café. They simply have the best fried fish and seafood. It's always fresh tasting, never greasy, and always excellent! I was visiting again last week and our first stop from the airport was dinner at the Oyster Café. As usual, I had the fried shrimp with fries... More

Walked into this place for the first time tonight. There were literally 4 other patrons in the entire restaurant and the guy at the bar and waitress who was swiffering the floor literally argued about who was going to take care of us..... In front of everyone!! It was absolutely unbelievable and to the point I finally asked if we... More

This time I ordered a dozen fried oysters. I got about 15 on my plate and they were huge. I like their breading. Crunchy and not over seasoned so you can taste the oysters. Good coleslaw and I was so full I couldn't finish the French fries. Good fast and friendly service.

I used to eat at the old location on 41 and always enjoyed the food. I moved away and lost track of them. I finally found the Oyster Cafe in their new location and couldn't wait to try them again. I ordered 6 fried oysters, 6 fried shrimp with fries and coleslaw. Everything was as good as I remembered. I... More

Nothing fancy but good raw oysters, fried shrimp and po-boy sandwiches. Prices are reasonable and the service is good.

I read several reviews of the Oyster Cafe, they are mixed and many were negative. I thought that I would give them a try. Who is the putz from NOLA that claims they know great seafood and that this place is wonderful. I left with a belly full of grease. The food was not real fresh, it dripped with grease,... More
