“Wonderful Place to Eat”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Even though it was busy, they got us a table very quickly. The grilled oysters were awesome. And the lobster salad was so good. Service was exceptional and we were very pleased with this restaurant.

“Excellent Char Broiled Oysters”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

Friendly servers. A place frequented by locals. Char broiled oysters are the best in New Orleans. Owner is a real gentleman.

“We will be back for more charbroiled oysters”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

This was our first visit to Drago's in Metairie and it won't be our last. Excellent food and excellent service. Parking is hard to come by in the area so get there a bit early for lunch.

Their charbroiled oysters are tops. Excellent seafood gumbo, fried crab claws, and shrimp remoulade. Their desserts are good too.

I tend to judge a restaurant's cleanliness by its restrooms. Drago's restrooms were so clean you could eat off the floor!

From the outside the building doesn't look real spiffy. Once inside the door it's a different world. Nicely decorated. Uniformed wait staff. Everyone courteous and helpful.

You will feel comfortable in here wearing neat jeans, khakis, golf shorts, or even coat and tie at lunch. I would not wear cutoffs and flip flops in here though. Don't know what the attire is at night.

As I said, "We will go back and often."

“Oyster- Mouth watering”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We recently went to dinner with friends at Drago's in Metairie. The raw oysters were salty and the Char-broiled were out of this world. We always have great meals at Drago's. They have a live lobster tank that you may select your dinner and have it prepared- some went as much as 8 lbs.
Service and friendly atmosphere is what we have come to be accustomed to here at Drago's.
There are other restaurants that claim to have char-broil oysters but don't waste your time or money. Come to the original!
