I don’t understand them and will not eat them. But the hostess and bartender Curtis said we had to try the Grilled Oysters and OMG they were amazing! We were told to put a dash of Chipotle Tabasco on them, dunk the bread in the...More

Don't let the long line intimidate you. The line actually moves pretty fast. Just do yourselves a favor and order a dozen of the Charbroiled Oysters. These oysters are grilled with butter, parmesan cheese, and other goodies I probably missed. So so yummy. Just the...More

Their seating is unusual. I don't think they take reservations. You stand in line and wait until a table opens up for a party your size, despite how long you wait and others behind you may be seated first. But, the food is worth the...More

What a fun place to eat. Go early and avoid long lines. Wait staff is helpful and make the evening great. Oysters either grilled or raw are excellent.

Stopped by after flying into New Orleans. Efficient service. Wide selection of Po'Boys and other menu items worth coming back.

We came to Acme for chargrilled oysters and we were not disappointed. They were HUGE oysters and delicious. Our other food was good too, but honestly I’d just opt for more oysters next time. We sat at the oyster bar after a 10ish min wait...More

The line for the Bourbon Street location is LONG, but it is so worth it. I'm not even a seafood eater and this was the BEST meal I had in New Orleans. I tried charbroiled oysters, which I surprisingly loved. And the jambalaya was the...More

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

No! You have to wait in line like everyone else dose. Party of 6 is no problem for them to seat.
