Great atmosphere with tv's to watch and casual dining. But the floors and tabletops were nasty. My 9 year old was so grossed out by the leftover food and debris on the floor he lost his appetite and refused to eat his food as a result. My husband and I split the platter for two, but with everything fried and piled high on the plate, had to stop eating...so stuffed...this is really for 4. And food was average.

We really enjoyed everything about our visit to Acme, except for the 90 minute wait. That is about average from what we were told. The food was very good, although a bit slow to come out. It was overall a good experience, we would go back agaion.

Walked here from one of the hotels. Wanted to try something different from pizza or hamburgers, and "different" is what we got. Service was friendly, and a server came from another section to volunteer to show us how to eat crawfish. They were a great appetizer. We shared a potpouri of New Orleans style foods -- not quite enough for two diners, but adequate especially when topped off with delicious bread pudding that would have been even better with a dollup of whipped cream. The food was pricey and somewhere around average in taste. Sort of "nothin special." We did, however, enjoy the dinner and might venture there again to try a po-boy if in the area.

Lunch break took us to ACME. A bit close in tables, no draft beer,high priced half shell oysters. Seafood gumbo was better than average. Server a little broken on his English. Okay for a quick fill up.
