“Great place and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Awesome oysters! We sat at the bar and had one of the coldest beers we have ever had a restaurant which is something I definately appreciate! Watched the guys shuck oysters and grill them up while catching some football on TV. They handed us a oyster on the house to get us started. The oysters were great, so good that we went back again the next day! Nice atmosphere, 2 story building with dining and small bars on both levels. We knew it was going to be good when we saw how many cars were there on a monday. Very friendly, highly recommend.

“Classy oyster house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This place is upscale without being pretentious. The oysters are great. My favorite was the charbroiled oysters. The seafood stuffed portobello was also very good.

“For a Coast Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Better than the average Coast Restaurant. Liked the atmosphere. Food was good. Not great, but good. Waitresses were nice, and the overall experience was nice.

“Amazing Oysters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Looking for a causal place to dine while in the area gambling? Try this place instead of getting stuck at the casinos. Within walking distance from Beau Rivage and Hard Rock. Amazing selection of oysters, appetizers and entrees. Oysters Orleans or Oysters Bienville are the way to go. Definatley coming back to this place when in town again.
