“Best oyster bar we encountered in the Quarter!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

It was the beginning of oyster season, Sept 3, my wife's 30th birthday and she loves raw oysters, so for a week we ate oysters....a lot of oysters! Overall this was by far the nicest experience we had in the Quarter. The ambiance was classic, but unpretentious, prices were reasonable (certainly not the highest we paid) and the quality of the oysters was the best. Well worth a visit to sit at the bar and suck back a few dozen, raw stuffed or grilled and a brew or two.

“So so good!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

The Royal House Oyster House is one of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans. Fast friendly service, and great bar. This time I had a Caesar salad with a side order of fried oysters and another side order of oysters on the half shell. Absolutely wonderful!!!!

“Enjoyable affordable lunch”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

The portion are huge! Easily shared. Get a dozen oysters and share a entree. We were told this is the BEST place for a cesar in town. We didn't sit upstairs since it was so hot that day but very nice atmosphere in the dinning room. Service was excellen here.

“Sit on Upstairs Balcony”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Great balcony for a cold drink, PoBoy, and chance to people watch.
Their Shrimp and Grits along with a Bloody Mary were very good.
Steep and sometimes busy stairs leading upstairs to dining and balcony seating.

“One of the best priced places in the the quarter. ”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stumbled into this restaurant by accident. We left very happy. The staff was prompt and courteous. At 13 bucks a dozen, you can't beat this place. We'll definitely be returning.
