Came here because our daughter stated they had the best chargrilled oysters and she was right. We were kind of tired from walking and this was a great place to stop, have lunch and a couple of drinks. Service was very good and Covid safety...measures were all in place. We sat next to an open window. Will visit again if in NOLA for sureMore

This was the worst restaurant we ate at while in New Orleans. I made a reservation a day in advance, although it wasn't needed. About an hour before our reservation time, we asked the hostess if they had oysters, her answer "yes, of course we...have oysters, we are an oyster bar." well guess what, my husband ordered half dozen oysters and they came back and said NO OYSTERS. This was the reason we made a reservation there. Besides that, it took the wait staff 20 minutes to come to our table after we sat down to give us the menus. Then she disappeared for another 20 minutes. The food was OK, not the best we had. We then asked for a dessert menu, which she gave us. My husband went to order the banana foster cheesecake, but was then told, "oh, we don't have that either." So why when we asked for the dessert menu, didn't the waitress just tell us, we only have bread pudding and Brownie a la mode instead of letting us look thru the whole menu? Just horrible service and the fact that they didn't have food made it a really bad experience.More

My husband and I decided to ride the streetcar down and use the Po Boy Passport we had gotten in June. We decided on the Royal House because we hadn't been before, however were disappointed to find out they were no longer honoring this special...to help feed hungry families. We shared the fried alligator, which we found a but chewy but tasty and the blackened chicken sandwich, which was very good. In addition, the wait staff was very friendly and attentive. We will most likely go back again, maybe when oyster prices drop.More

The Royal House has absolutely delicious chargrilled oysters! We loved them and this place got us hooked. We sat on the balcony and enjoyed watching the different groups of glow bikes go by while enjoying our dinner. It's right by the courthouse and in a...convenient location in the French Quarter. I also ordered the ribeye, which wasn't all that great unfortunately, so I would just stick to the seafood on the menu since that's what they're good at.More

Food was excellent and wait staff was so friendly service from everyone was 4 star. The charbroiled Oysters were perfect. Grandson tried Oysters this was his 2nd attempt and Royal House hit a hone run with their oysters.

We went here on our last night in New Orleans. The oysters are delicious and so fresh. We had steak for main and this was cooked to perfection. Amazing food at a reasonable price- lovely restaurant and nice staff

We traveled with another couple to NOLA in March and came home home just as NOLA was starting to shut down. We were able to eat at The Royal House for the birthday girl. If there are only two of you, definitely ask to be...seated on the balcony. It looks out over Royal Street and you can hear all the street musicians and none of the cacophony from Bourbon Street. Cajun and Creole cuisine. Friendly service. The wife and daughter discovered this restaurant a few years ago on a previous trip and the food continues to be delicious. Stay safe and healthy.More

well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Not many places in NOLA are what I would call kid friendly. They all allow kids but you might want to take a look at their menu. They have a great burger which might be of interest to kids depending on their ages.
