    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...

    Fantastic Cajun food and reasonably priced drinks.

    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.

    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 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!

    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!

    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.
