I love oysters and the place to go in New Orleans for oysters is Acme. Everything we had was great - fresh oysters on the half shell, grilled oysters (grilled oysters with parm. cheese and garlic) and crawfish hush puppies. I also ordered the etouffee and it wasn't that great. It was ok, but not spectacular. We would definitely go back.

One tip - Go early!! Everyone starts lining up along Iberville around 5-6pm to get in. We go there at 3:45-4pm and got sat right away.

Had the chargrilled oysters and the fried peace-maker po-boy, I was not a fan of oysters until I had them here!! Wonderful atmosphere, get there before 6 or you'll have to wait in a long line. Not to be missed!

Service was great and food was on the mark! Boo Fries are yummy. Shrimp Po'boy ws well done, good flavor and the right amount of lettuce and tomato. Friends enjoyed the red beans and rice. It's a little loud, but not distracting.
