    Oysters fresh from Gulf Coast waters—served raw on the half shell or fried on Louisiana’s answer to Texas toast—rule at this tile-lined seafood joint. More places to eat like a local: tandl.me/12ufz7c

    The raw oysters are "a tradition," says Guy Fieri. Family-owned since 1919, the classic NOLA establishment is also known for irresistible fried-oyster sandwiches, fried shrimp and soft-shell crab. Read more

    All the seafood is gluten free! They have gluten free beer and you can get raw oysters at the bar while you wait in line.

    Undecided? Get a cup of gumbo and share the seafood platter. Best fried fish/oysters/crab claws I've had.
