“Great oysters”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

But they are expensive. Oysters were very tasty, but 15 a dozen. Service was decent, they (staff) do appear to be doing you a favor by letting you eat there

“Char grilled oysters!”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

When you come here, you have to order the char grilled oysters. And don't just get the half dozen. Get a FULL DOZEN. With some fries and a drink, you'd be hard pressed to find a better dinner.

“Average food, slightly overpriced, service fairly good”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We visited this Acme at Baytowne Harbour for dinner during the November offseason. There was not a crowd; maybe 20-25 people dining at the same time as us. The Greeter at the front door did not impress us but we were seated rather quickly. We were not greeted promptly. However, thereafter the service was attentive. For an appetizer we ordered the grilled oysters. They were tasty, a little small and slightly overpriced. I was surprised that steamed oysters were not offered; only grilled or raw. As I have seen stated otherwise in Acme reviews, the kids meals were good sized and plentiful. The adult entrees were fine; nothing great, nothing bad. Again, a little overpriced. The decor was appropriate and interesting with college football paraphernalia adorning the ceilings and walls. The teams represented were the local powerhouses: FSU, UF, LSU etc. The bartender was a pleasant and colorful fellow who shucked some oysters for free for a few of the kids. I doubt I would visit Acme again with so many other excellent restaurants in the area. It was not bad, just a little overpriced and the adult portions need to grow a little. New greeters are needed and the service ended quite good but started slow.
