I love seafood and I decided to check out Acme Oyster & Seafood House for lunch. I sat at the bar and the service was good, but the food selecton was poor in my opinion. Unless you want Oysters and/or your food with a lot of sauces this is not the place for you. I had hoped for a good... More

This is a regular stop on our annual family reunion visit to New Orleans. While the rest of our party dined on chargrilled oysters and bowls of gumbo, my wife and I split one of their "10-napkin" roast beef po'boys. We were seated promptly. Our waiter was personable and very efficient. Parking can be a challenge on a busy night.... More

Stopped in for supper with my wife while visiting New Orleans. The restaurant was packed but we were seated quickly. Our server was wonderful and very attentive throughout the entire meal - even after we closed out the check. We had the crab claw appetizer with a red horseradish sauce and it came out quickly after being ordered and was... More

You won't me disappointed with this stop next time you're in New Orleans. Have been here several times and the food is as authentic as it gets. Not to mentioned over the top portion sizes from their po boys to their dinner plates. They have a nice bar area in the middle with seating all around.

Great service, good Bom Bom shrimp and raw oysters. The BBQ oysters were overcooked and very small. Drago's is much better. The shrimp po-boys were full of shrimp and full of salt. Chef needs to put the salt on hold. Fun place to watch a little football and hang out with friends

This is our alternative restaurant when we want a change from Drago's. We actually like all of the menu items here where as we really don't like much else than the oysters from Drago's. The service is usually friendly and attentive. We have no hesitation recommending or returning.

We had to take a family member to the airport so we always plan for a great meal while we are there. We got the char broiled oysters for an appetizer. They were great. I got the jambalaya & red beans & rice & it was all wonderful. I've never had anything that wasn't good here. It's an awesome place.
