One of the few restaurants in French Quarter that lives up to its name and reputation. I always go back and they never disappoint. Usually a small line but it move quick. If you are smaller party try sitting at the shucking bar. Guys behind...More

The iconic spot for charbroiled oysters in the Quarter. Word to the wise: the earlier you go (they open at 10:30), the shorter the wait.

The hit sausage po boy was delicious. They did mess up my gumbo. They gave me the seafood gumbo. I ordered my food to go so I was already back at the hotel when I opened it up. I was very upset about that. They...More

We were here for early dinner on a weekday around 5pm. There seems to be always a line. But we agreed to sit at the bar so got seated a lot faster. Plus that gives you view of the people shucking oysters which is kinda...More

Even though this restaurant is a regional chain, the chargrilled oysters and crabcakes were awesome! A must have if you like oysters..very tasty. Be prepared to wait during busy times, but worth the wait!

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.
