I read reviews that said all I could eat here would be rice and beans, but the chargrilled oysters are actually gf and safe for celiacs if ordered without the french bread accompaniment. I actually brought some gf bread for myself, which I highly recommend as the garlic and herb butter sauce was to die for!! The oysters themselves were... More

Long lines just to get seated. Now worth the wait or the hassle. Acroos the street and next door are restaurants with faster service and the same menu at same quality. Would not recommend. Its a complete tourist trap

It was a long line up but all worth it. Their Fried Oysters were great, Ordered two dozens and Po-Boy was great too. Enjoyed their cat-fish. The server was amazing.

First stop on my last trip - chargrilled oysters and crawfish - doesn't get better than that! Only drawback is having to wait in line but the host/hostesses are attentive and keep things moving. This place is worth the wait!

We stood in line for about 30 minutes on a Sunday night and am glad we waited. Their chargrilled oysters are very popular and can take a while to come out so order those ahead of time if you are in a hurry. We had their medley plate and seafood etoufe and it was delicious.

We enjoy coming here, you can't visit the French quarter without eating at Acme. My personal favorite is the jambalaya.

My traveling companions really wanted oysters. Apparently they were delicious - we went to Acme two days in a row! I am not an oyster eater and the server recommended that I try the roast beef poboy. It was amazing! I had had a poboy at Killer PoBoys the day before and that poboy paled in comparison. Acme's was great!... More

Restaurant was crowded but wait time was short. Food was great. Husband enjoyed the catfish and shrimp. We aren't into oysters but everybody else was enoying themselves.

Thank Ardebra T

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
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 District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
