“Great Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

After a week on the road a dinner at Dragos was a real treat. The char-broiled Oysters were as billed....GREAT. The oyster chowder was to die for and the entres we split were wonderful. This is a bit hard to find if you don't have GPS but as a visitor to New Orleans I have found my way back there the last three trips.

“Food trumps mediocre service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

Drago's has great food- the oysters are incredible and I really have never had anything here that wasn't good. the atmosphere is not my favorite (loud and crowded) and the service is hit or miss (servers try hard but often have too many tables) but it isn't so bad that it ruins the food. We to eat here whenever we are in town, so obviously the positive outweighs the negative :)

“Excellent Oysters!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

One of the best places to eat in Metairie. Just off of Veteran's, very easy to get to. It may be busy but you won't have to wait too long. The char-broiled oysters are AMAZING! Must try! We've tried everything from the lobster dishes to the pasta dishes, nothing disappoints. The servers are friendly and the service is exceptional!

“Seafood Fiesta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Drago's in Metarie offers superb oysters, either on the half shell or charbroiled. The owners have their own oyster beds and you can watch them being opened and placed on the grill by a team of shuckers. There is parking and a great eat-fest atmosphere. You want go wrong at this local favorite.

“Wonderful Place to Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Even though it was busy, they got us a table very quickly. The grilled oysters were awesome. And the lobster salad was so good. Service was exceptional and we were very pleased with this restaurant.
