Acme Oyster House has been there all my life an long before it. Raw Oysters on the half shell with your own mix of cocktail sauce and horseradish combined with any brand saltine crackers to carry the combination onto your pallet. Some feel it's Heaven...More

We were told they had good seafood, but being in New Orleans we wanted to try the PoBoy. Well the seafood might be good, but the sandwiches not so much. A young man lead us to our table after a short wait and said the...More

The freshness of the charbroiled oysters was outstanding. The char from the grill and the butter and garlic sauce made for a great appetizer of oysters. I would also recommend the shrimp and oyster po boy and the crab cake.

Asked for "no lemon" in tea, got served it anyway. (Not a huge deal.) Chargrilled Oysters were great. Jambalaya not too exciting. Hubby enjoyed his Red Beans and rice with sausage.

Chargrilled oysters are the best thing on the menu and they will not be shy about telling you that.....for good reason!! They are AMAZING and if you’ve never had them before they will warp your opinion of all other oysters you will ever have.

Guilty tourist pleasure. Acme has gotten a bit out of hand with pricing compared to quality but who can blame them the tourist herds are getting crazy! It's still a great spot to get dive style Louisiana food without the guessing for consistency of meals....More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

No! You have to wait in line like everyone else dose. Party of 6 is no problem for them to seat.
