Go for the wonderful Oysters! You can see them while they cook and you will enjoy them while you eat. Raw, Charbroiled, whatever way they are awesome. Good wine and beer here too in a nice open atmosphere. It is in a hotel, but that is oksy. Worth going!

Recommended by a local! So was expecting it to be really good. Ordered shrimp and grits was very disappointed!Unlike Savannah Ga and Charleston SC, where as you get a bowl of grits with shrimp on top. This came with shrimp and a scoop of grits in the middle. It was tasty, just wasn’t served with enough grits to the proportion of shrimp. Waited hour and fifteen minutes for our food, finally a manager came out and said they had messed up our order and he would give us a discount. Once order came out
my husbands was wrong and cold. Best part about this restaurant was our server. She was very friendly and kept our drinks topped off.

One of the top 3 foods I have ever had and I travel the world regularly! Their Chargrilled oysters are outstanding, Flavorful, and addicting! The service is amazing as well and Emmitt at the bar was the best! I’ve rarely seen a bar tender manage every aspect of everything going on from take out orders to drinks, to orders all over. Great job and delicious food! Best restaurant around and I will be back and I already tell everyone about you!!

The char-broiled oysters are excellent. The shrimp and grits are very good. Service is good. Ate there twice. Would go again.

Having been here on previous visits to NOLA I had high expectations, however this visit was just average. Neither food nor service stood out. Nothing was bad, however nothing was remarkable either and our chargrilled oysters were warm at best.
