    Sat at the oyster bar and had a blast BSing with the guy shucking the oysters. Hurricanes & oysters were both very good. Both were average price for the Quarter. $10 Hurricanes & $13 doz raw oysters.

    Perfect place on Bourbon, everything we ordered was delicious and our server Ashli was super sweet and helpful. They offer a 15% discount if your a local (aka LA license), Definitely will be back!

    We were going to Acme, but the line was down the block. The caller outside of La Bayou brought us in. I'm glad he did. The server was very nice. Manager was very friendly. And the food was amazing.

    I'm not an expert, but these are the best (and most affordable) oysters on Bourbon Street. Maybe even all of New Orleans? Look for Teddy at the oyster bar! Highly recommended

    I highly recommend the Chipotle Chargrilled Oysters!! Delicious flavor!! But you can skip the corn and crab bisque. It lacked flavor.

    The Andouille Sausage Gumbo is the best I have ever had! The Boudain Balls were just to big and fried for my taste. Service was great! Restaurant was friendly and clean!

    If you're lucky grab a table on the balcony upstairs - perfect for taking in the sights and sounds of Bourbon St. Waiter had some serious attitude though :/
