We have been there before specifically for fresh oysters and cold beer and always enjoyed the place. This time it was empty, except for one other customer. Thinking that was because it was early evening on a Thursday, we went in anyway and ordered two dozen oysters on
the half shell. The first clue should have been when a man came from the kitchen and told the waitress he didn't think they had oysters. But, she brought out the first dozen. The stench was sickening. There was no way we were eating those! We cancelled our order and left. An oyster house that intentionally serves bad oysters? No thanks. We won't be back.

The best bloody mary in town and in a to go at that in a souvenier cup! Family Friendly place that let us park our stroller inside with no problem. Fast sit down lunch with the kids and we were well satisfied.

Not the greatest place in NO, but a pretty good Po' Boy and gumbo. Beer was cold and the food good. If you are on Jackson Square and just want a quick place to run into and have a good lunch, Corner Oyster will do just fine.

I am giving this place an excellent rating because of the drinks only. I have been in this establishment 3 times. Once in 2009, and twice this year. The head bartender was there on 2 of the trips. We remember her from 2009 because she is that good. The Bloody Mary is by far the BEST Bloody Mary I have ever tasted. On our third visit, we decided to order food. It was ok. Next time I will have cocktails here and dine elsewhere. If the culinary competition weren't so tight in NOLA, I might feel different about the food. It was ok, not bad, just not excellent. The drinks were phenomenal and I look forward to a Bloody Mary from this establishment the next time I visit the city.

Stopped in for a late night dinner and were very pleasantly surprised with fantastic service and fantastic oysters! We had oysters on the half shell, bacon wrapped fried oysters, and fried oysters. All were fresh, fresh, fresh and our waiter was fantastic! Only complaint is that they are very rigid about anything off menu - for example, we were given a price of $12.00 for one extra stuffed crab.
