    The charred oysters were to die for

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

    We were happy until we saw a mouse running around the place. When asked, the manager’s response was “The buildings are old, and I can’t stop them coming in from next door. There’s nothing I can do”.

    Superficial and touristy - not at all what I was expecting after reading reviews on here. It's cacophonous, and the oyster "tacos" are fried oysters served on crappy, underseasoned tortilla chips.

    It was just ok. The service was spectacular, but the food wasn’t as good as other places nearby.

    The Blood Mary's were average at best, very bland, but the raw oysters were delish.

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

    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 :)

    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

    The food was amazing, however disgusting water from the AC dripped on me and my food.

    Fresh and grilled oysters are both effortlessly excellent. They really know what they're doing.

    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...

    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.

    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!

    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!!! Shrimp tasted exceptionally fresh & grits were fried. The staff was also very professional & friendly!

    We were very disappointed by the Royal House Oyster Bar. I had the Louis Salad and it was mostly iceberg lettuce covered with greasy deep-fried crab. We will not return and do not recommend.

    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

    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

    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.
