I can say it has been for a while one of my favorite places to eat and the Chardboiled Oysters stay on my mind for weeks on end!!

Cold food. Nothing special. Oysters pretty good but not much else. One person in our party had to send food back. Ate here only due to convenience but would not recommend.

We started our meal with an award winning Bloody Mary along one of the best Spinach Dips I’ve eaten. We then had a dozen of the original Charbroiled Oyster in a lemon/butter sauce that I enjoyed tremendously. The butter sauce was so good the I...More

I love oysters and these Chargrilled and the best. When we are in New Orleans, we eat there at least two or three times. They also make great fried oysters too. I discovered Drago's in the Hilton when my company had a customer function there....More

Drago’s has the best chargrilled oysters I’ve eaten in my life! These are very very fresh, juicy, sweet, and grilled to perfection. I sat right at the oyster bar and watched them grill I could feel the heat from the fire. It just can’t get...More

Stopped by after a long day of walking. Started off with Charbroiled oysters, definitely worth it. Mama’s gumbo was good, as well as the alligator tacos. Martini’s were good. I’m glad we stopped. I’d go back.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
