While the big name oyster houses have lines around the block, head toward the river and hit up this place. The oyster are outstanding! Grilled or raw. Great drinks and a fun time at the bar!

A little off the ‘beaten path, but well worth the visit. Crawfish Etouffee dish was one of the best I can remember ever having.

My first ever experience with Char-Broiled Oysters happened here, two years ago. I've been testing them everywhere since. This is the Best I can find. I return Here every time I'm in New Orleans.
