“3rd time back and service was much better”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

I come here mainly for the charbroiled oyster, seafood pastas and the casual setting so I definitely recommend these items for anyone looking for good seafood when they're in town. Also, I have to add that our server Tony was very nice and professional. The last time we came here, our server was rather curt so it's great to see things are improving in their service.

“oysters”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Aside from Morning Call and Lakeside Shopping Center, the only reason to be in the Fat City neighborhood (an architectural blight.) Order the char-broiled oysters. You will not be sorry!

“Oysters, Oysters, Oysters, so may ways and good bread!!!!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I attended for a friends' 70 birthday, and what a treat! Only had a 20 minute wait, met the nicest folks while awaiting for our tables, no reservations, the visiting with others made it so fun, and none were locals and they enjoyed the excitement that was awaiting, delicious oysters, this was 7:20 p.m., Friday night. Parking is a mess, be prepared to walk a couple of blocks, just in case you are not lucky with their parking lot, it is busy,however you are given extremely warm and PROFESSIONAL wait staff service. Our waitress knew her menu and was good at preparing our order, the grilled oysters are great for an appetizer, I could have made them an entree, DELICIOUS, and the greeter is a major family member, impressive. After a dozen of the grilled, with delicious crispy bread to soup up the garlic flavored dripping, I shared the fried oyster entree, too full, added by a salad which comes with the entree. When in East New Orleans or should I say Metairie, you must experience this wonderful fun, exciting, restaurant and enjoy OYSTERS.

“GFrilled Oysters- Who Knew”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Just off the lake this restaurant is much more fun than their downtown version. I can make a meal out of their appetizers as long as we start with their famous Grilled Oysters.
Priced right and a Joint Atmosphere- Think Diners-Drive-Ins & Dives
