    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

    The OYSTERS...don't leave w/o trying 4 flavors! Try the shrimp & fried green tomatoes. Try the SHRIMP N GRITS. And def try the BREAD PUDDING... they have a #foursquare special!

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