We ate at this restaurant because our hotel was in walking distance. The food was so delicious! Erica G. Was our waitress and she ever so kindly brought us out 2 chargrilled oysters to try after we were finished, because she wanted to make sure we knew what they were known for! We weren't disappointed! She was very attentive and... More

Came here while on business. Sat right down. Decent service while here. Ordered bread and ceaser salads. Also ordered fresh Salmon. Came with 2 sides. Ceaser salad was decent for $3.99. Salmon came out very good as were the sides of veggies and red beans and rice for $13.49. Very casual place and would come back.

Typical fare. Prices are a bit high for what you get in the area. Nothing to fault but nothing to wright home about. It feels as if they jumped the shark at becoming a tourist trap. That isn't bad itself but it feels "less local" compared to other places in the area.

Great restaurant. Oysters are an obvious choice here. They deliver, large and fresh. Tasty and served multiple ways. Staff was great and service was quick. Beer selection was not that great.. However you will find one you can drink.. Do not let the line out the door scare you, they move even large parties in and out quick.

My boyfriend and I ended up coming here because my boyfriend loves oysters. Luckily, this place was near. He had the oysters and I had crab cakes as an appetizer and a fish plate as a meal. The crab cake was delicious. And the fish plate was too die for. I don't like oysters but his looked soooo good. Our... More

Don't miss the charbroiled oysters and I also had the fried fish and shrimp. Oh, my goodness, I did not want to leave. I was also blessed to have Tracey A (#498) as a server. She was pleasant and attentive. The fish and shrimp were both perfectly breaded and fried to perfection. Tracey suggested the hushpuppies and I'm glad she... More

We went to Acme while on a recent trip to NOLA and this is a really good place to eat. Prices are reasonable and the food is really good. We ordered an appetizer of Char-grilled Oysters which were exceptionally good. My wife got the corn and crab bisque which she really enjoyed and a friend ate the seafood gumbo which... More
