Always enjoy those chargrilled oysters at Drago's. When we arrived, we could see the flames on the grill, searing those fresh Louisiana oysters. One of the oyster shuckers asked me if I would like to try one on the half shell. So, I indulged him and ate one. It was cold, big, salty and on flavor - which means, it... More

Charbroiled oysters are da bomb!! We went on a Saturday night and we didn't have to wait for a table. Everything on the menu looked delicious.

I never eat seafood, but I did try the oysters. They were incredible! I also have the chicken gumbo and it was good as well. Fried Alligator nuggets had to be my favorite item we had that day.

Don't go to NOLA without visiting Drago's...this is a "MUST" for all oyster lovers! Very popular with locals; arrive early because reservations are not taken! Attire is casual/dressy.

Great food. I started with the chargrilled oysters, excellent lightly seasoned, a small amount of parmesan cheese, grilled just right so juicy and delectable. For my entree, tasty shrimp with crab and cajun sausage. Excellent service, good beers and decent wines by the glass. I will return here on my next trip to New Orleans.

High end seafood. Quality dishes with unique New Orleans appeal. Grilled oysters are a specialty not to be missed. Excellent atmosphere and service. Prices can be a bit high for a business lunch.

Drago 's has the best charbroiled oysters in New Orleans. They are perfectly cooked, beautifully seasoned and it's really hard to stop at just a dozen of these. Don't miss this one of a kind foodie adventure! Their menu has fabulous seafood but I'm usually too full from the scrumptious oysters. A must do if you come to New Orleans!
