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.

My new favorite place. I've been to Lakeview Harbor many times in the past and have usually had a good experience. Food was pretty good and the atmosphere is for the most part upbeat. I recently heard that the owners made some changes to management and wanted to see what the buzz was all about. I have to say that the place seemed different in a much better way. The service, including the hostess and waiter were great. Although the place was busy we were seated quickly and our orders were taken faster than I ever remember. Better yet, the food came out in about the time I expected. Ever better yet, it was delicious. I even had some guy named Gene come by and ask me if everything was OK. I later learned he was part of the new management. Great experience. Great meal. Great time. See ya soon Lakeview Harbor
There are great deals to be had at this nice hotel, which is undergoing renovations as of March 2012. The rooms and bathrooms are actually bigger than those in the fancier Hyatt Regency New Orleans, and the free wifi was MUCH better and less complicated to access than the sort-of-free-in-very-restricted-areas wifi at the Hyatt. The folks at the front desk were invariably kind and helpful, although I didn't have any real problems to deal with. The entire hotel is non-smoking, but one of the rooms I was in had a very faint odor, like some old men had been smoking cigars and arguing about monetary policy in there 50 years ago. I'm quite sensitive to smoke residue, but the odor didn't bother me at all once my nose adjusted to it. I'd gladly stay here again if I return to the Big Easy.
