The Grilled Oysters are what they are known for and they ARE amazing!! The stuffed Lobster was even better. It just melted in your mouth and I crave the stuffed lobster.

Drago's charbroiled oysters are the best that I have ever had, and the seafood gumbo is very good as well. Will definitely go back the next time I visit Louisiana.

Drago's is the BEST place to have grilled oysters. Others try to imitate but they can't touch Drago's. I am born a raised in New Orleans, trust me, Drago's is the best for grilled oysters and their lobsters are not far behind.

I love their charbroiled oysters- I can eat about 50 of them if I can- they are a must try!!! I also tried chicken and andouille sausage gumbo and it was awesome!!! For dinner I had fried catfish and it wad good - You are going to wait for your food but it's worth it!!!
