We went to Acme based on a friend's recomendation and we were pleasantly surprised. our waitress was unusually friendly and pleasant - she treted us well and was pleasant even when were unsure about our order. We ordered the roasted oysters and a couple of drinks they showed up cooked exactly as we'd requested (a little more cooked than normal and extra cheese) and sizzling hot. Neither of us were oyster fanatics but these were super good we order another order after we finished our started round and left with full bellies - great job Acme!

All good things come to those who wait - that's the truth! My husband and I visited NOLA for our Anniversary weekend and were pleased with the service and selection at Acme. Recommend the chargriled oysters that are done with butter and parmesean. Expect to wait in line for 10 minutes or so...
While on a trip with my Religion In Primative Societies class down to New Orleans to study Voodoo, we ventured into the Acme Oyster House one evening to dine on some authentic New Orleans food. The atmosphere of this place is exceptional. The food at this place is out of this world! I'm not much of an oyster person. So, I dined on Jambalaya and Hush Puppies. I absolutely fell in love with both of these items. I had honestly never had Jambalaya before but after eating it at the Acme Oyster House, I'm addicted. Also, the Hush Puppies were outstanding. Being from Tennessee, I'm used to these big fried balls of cornbread mixture with onions in it. So, it was just delightful to receive a bowl of these small fried balls with onion and green peppers inside with a sweet yet almost savory flavor. I look forward to returning to New Orleans hopefully in the near future just to eat at the Acme Oyster House.

No trip to New Orleans is complete without a trip to Acme! The bread that they use for their Po-Boys is the BEST IN TOWN! The oysters are great and the service is really friendly. If there is a line, just grab a drink from one of the bars on the corner, but be prepared to toss it at the door. Can't say enough good things about Acme.

Husband and I have been coming to NOLA yearly since before Katrina to vacation. We first stumbled on this restaurant by accident, having eaten at another less than stellar seafood place. We adore Acme, and have never had a bad experience. We've also found that we prefer eating at the bar, to watch the shuckers and talk to the employees, as well as other friendly customers. I tried a grilled oyster, thanks to the guy sitting next to me, and ordered my own--YUM! Catfish, shrimp, jambalaya, gumbo, red beans, oysters--all entrees are great and filling, but we always have to have the warm bread pudding to finish off the meal. Don't miss this gem!
