“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

While not in what I would call a great area and with extremely limited parking, it is still the best place for charcoal grilled oysters.
You can tell that this is the inventor of the dish and it is so buttery and garlicy...great with the bread to sop up all the juices...a meal all by itself.

“Love the chargrilled oysters!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

This place is a must visit - for lunch or dinner. And you just have to try the chargrilled oysters (make sure you sop up the garlic/butter sauce with the delicious French bread!) - they are wonderful! Their soups are great, especially the corn & shrimp bisque. And I personally love the lobster salad!

“FAMILY OWNED AND IT SHOWS”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Dragos Restaurant has absolutely some of the best charbroiled oysters that you'll ever eat in the New Orleans area. The original location in Metairie features the family patriarch - usually at the bar visiting with everyone - and the matriarch serving as hostess. They are a delightful couple especially after all these years in the business. Also of note is their location in the Hilton in downtown New Orleans on the Riverfront. Order anything that is seafood from their menu but please don't miss their oysters !! Always fresh and just shucked !!

“Grilled Oysters -Wow”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

The grilled oysters are worth the visit. Place was packed to the max. Ate oysters in bar before being seated. Slow bar service. BT was very disconnected. Dining room service was on point. Lobster over cooked but replaced. Food was well seasoned and tasty.

“Better of the two locations”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

You don't have to pay for parking and a larger menu. Food is also better. Still not the best option, but pretty good. Loved the oyster.
