We eat here at least once a month. Great char-broiled oysters, boom-boom shrimp and hush puppies. Service is great. Great Atmosphere and good bar to eat at if crowded.

People would stand in line for an hour at the Acme Oyster House in the French Quarter. There may be a wait in Metairie but certainly not that long. And if you wait at the bar, not long at all. The food is really good....More

Wait wasn't long and all sea food we ate was very good. Our server wasn't great but the hostesses at the door were.

Fried everything and oyster everything. Hushpuppies were stellar. Very popular as it was crowded. The gumbo was burned but nobody seemed to notice except me. Otherwise it was excellent. Im continually amazed by the nice people here.

Ready314 put it right, there are numerous good seafood restaurants in Metairie. A acme is very good and less expensive than most. If you like Gumbo, try chef's Ron Gumbo. It's harder to find but well worth it.
