    Take advantage of the Foursquare or Yelp check-in deal for a free appetizer. Loved the chargrilled oysters and crab claws. Just a couple blocks from Bourbon Street, but much less crazy.

    I was craving all of the things New Orleans is known for: gumbo, jambalaya and crawfish étouffée. The taste of New Orleans gave perfectly sized portions of each one! They were delicious! So yum!

    Grilled Oysters and Shrimp Jambalaya -- both were excellent and as expected, served hot and done to a turn. Service was prompt and excellent. If you want something special just ask Chris, my waiter.

    This should the first things you do on your first morning in New Orleans... a dozen charbroiled oysters & killer Bloody Mary. Ask for the vodka at end of the bar that's been been bathing in olives

    Taste of New Orleans is great if you can't decide on other menu dishes. For the non-seafood person you ask about substituting chicken in the pasta dishes and they are more than willing to accommodate.

    This was the best place I've eaten so far! The red fish biegnet is to die for and the étouffée was AMAZING!! John was the best waiter with fantastic recommendations!!! 5 Stars! Bread pudding pic below

    Solid Cajun/seafood, 3rd trip and not disappointed. Have had the same waiter 2x & he was awesome. (Ty) If you're a party of 2 you can sit on balcony. Sometimes there's an amazing violin duo on corner!

    The charbroiled oysters will blow your mind! Cooked in butter, parm, and garlic - they're way better than the raw ones. Pro tip: order an extra side of garlic bread to sop up the sauce!

    This place was excellent. I loved my oysters duo and the redfish beignets the locals next to me said I had to try (they were right - so good!) Friendly staff, great food, super reasonable prices!

    Came here twice! Really delicious, clean, and fresh tasting oysters. Strong drinks, try their hurricane and basil berry! Service and the kitchen is slow but very sweet staff :)

    If you don’t like oysters, the fried fish platter is great and comes with tons of delicious, perfectly fried fish. The FOH manager seems to sit sections too quickly, so the servers seem overwhelmed.

    Check in on yelp for $10 off an appetizer. And let that appetizer be the charbroiled oysters! Lively setting and they'll open all of the doors so you can hear the musicians playing outside.

    The fried alligator was great, along with the char-grilled oysters and the oyster pasta with scampi. I recommend all of those items! You won't regret it!

    Go stand in line at Acme, leave this place all to me. Excellent food and service, great oyters raw or chargrilled, and the prices are a steal. We went 3x in 3 days on vaca. We were regulars by the end

    Crab claws is good. Blacken shrimp jambalaya is not good. Basically dip everything in the crab claw butter sauce. While dining, a roach crawl over 3 tables in front of me, lost appetite quickly...

    Oyster Rockefeller, fried shrimp platter, gumbo and the drinks. Tina was our waitress and she was so funny and friendly. Coming back tomorrow. Better than Drago's.

    Chargrilled Oysters are life changing but if you want the spectrum you can order the duo....Trey, our wonderful server suggested doing 2 royale, 2 chargrilled, and 2 rockafeller. Also, crab claws. Yum

    Try the gator bites, just the right amount of flavor. Crawfish ravioli is so good, the crawfish is so fresh. Blackened shrimp & sausage jambalaya is amazing. Possibly the best shrimp I've ever had!

    I sat at the bar, had the chargrilled oysters, the best Bloody Mary, and the nice guy behind the bar suggested I try the redfish beignets, which he went off to make himself. Doesn't get much better.

    Try the redfish beignets. They are delicious and match well with a glass of moscato. Ask for Lex (aka Black Chris) for some great recommendations!

    Shrimp & grits w a carnival margarita is the truth for breakfast!!! Prefer the chargrilled oysters at Acme House but pretty good here too. Heard they have a mean banana foster cheesecake also!!

    Good grilled oysters with seafood stuffing. You need ID to sit or order at the bar - no exceptions. The waiter turned away a few 'senior' couples without it

    Great people, great food. The Blackened Red Fish was excellent. Ambita Amber on draft and a very friendly atmosphere, I'd dine there again in a heart beat.

    Chargrilled oysters we're to die for. Also had the shrimp and grits and those Gouda grits are insanely good.

    The Bloody Mary is, without exaggeration, one of the best I've ever had in my life.

    best meal of my trip! The crawfish crab cakes were browned to perfection, the blackened redfish was incredible, and no lie the garlic crab claws could be the best ever could drink it thru a straw

    In the past Ive always had a great experience, so Im hoping this was just a fluke. Our food was lukewarm and looked like it had been under the warming light a while. Veggies had little seasoning too.

    The Charbroiled Oysters are some of the best oysters you'll ever have. Garlic, butter & Parmesan!

    Oysters! Go for the second floor dining room. For one meal, you just might feel you're away from the tourist masses.

    Nice staff and the food is ok. Would rather walk the extra blocks to the Bourbon House for oysters, but this place does offer a relaxed dining experience while shopping on Royal

    The chargrilled oysters are the delicious buttery goodness that everyone claims them to be. Check-in to get the free appetizer and order the redfish beignets - heavenly.

    It's more like a seafood restaurant. Shrimp Gumbo, I had a bowl. Very good! Service was excellent. Shrimp Creole, spices blended perfectly. And a cold local beer. I'm in heaven.

    This is one the few French Quarter oyster bars where locals belly up for fresh bivalves.
