Went for lunch and the place was busy but fast service. Chargrilled oysters were great! The sampler platter was good too. Fun atmosphere and good waitstaff.

Went to acme for the first time and it did not disappoint! I'm allergic to shellfish but was still able to have the jambalaya! It's was delicious! So good I had an order to go. Service was great, Keisha was very sweet and attentive! Will definitely recommend!

Okay - my quick and to the point review - there is a reason why the line is so long. The chargrilled oysters are THE BOMB.

THEY WERE SO DAMN GOOD.

However, the raw oysters were just okay. Had better ones at Oceana Grill.

But the chargrilled ones... definitely a must

Had a late lunch at the bar. Woman bartender was really nice and made me a great fresh margarita on the rocks.
The chargrilled oysters are outrageous!
I'm not a raw oyster fan but the couple next to us at the bar ordered another dozen after they finished the first.
Shrimp po boy was also really good.
It's a must do in NOLA.
