I had never eaten bar b qued Oysters before. Oh my! So so good. The shrimp was also good. We had to wait a bit to get inside but it was worth it!

I ordered the Seafood etouffee and all I can say is this. Acme Oyster & Seafood House gets an A+ for presentation, A+ for flavor, A+ for customer service and speed of serving my order. Great dinning experience.

I really love the shrimp po boys but the chargrilled oysters are where its at!!! I took my sister and my cousin and we don't even eat oysters but I will be craving them until I return. Expect a crowd and a little wait.

A evening out with family. We were seated right away. All we wanted were oysters and salad. Salads came quickly and were fresh and crispy. I had raw oysters. Delicious and not dried out (like they had been opened and sitting.) The cocktail sauce had a good flavor. My brother had grilled oysters. They were delicious and more than he... More

Great fried seafood. A friendly atmosphere. A little loud, but that's the nature of a bistro type restaurant.

Too many good restaurants in New Orleans to waste your money here. Service was OK. We were seated at a table that was too small for our group, which made for an uncomfortable dining... More

Went as a group of 4 when the plane landed at 9 p.m. Goal-beer and oysters. Mission accomplished. Omar was a very attentive server and was quick to get whatever we needed. Try the oyster shooters.

My husband and I had dinner on a busy Sunday night during the NBA All Star Game. The restaurant was crowded, but it was such a fun atmosphere that we did not mind a wait. Food was excellent and service was even better.

Went for lunch and was seated promptly. Convenient for wheelchair patrons. Naturally we started with the grilled oysters with plenty dipping bread and was given more bread on request. The soup and half sandwich is a really good choice. I like that cucumber slices are a water garnish, really refreshing and a change from lemon. Great wait staff. Has a... More
