The grilled and fried are to die for! Very cute restaurant and the service is good as well. Not sure it is worth waiting on a long line for - you can’t walk 5 feet without tripping over a restaurant that serves oysters - so save the line and make a reservation someplace that has good reviews with no line.

We have visited Acme many times before and always enjoyed our meals.
Our group was rather large so we have to wait a bit to get seated. We were there for lunch so we ordered light.
Started with an appetizer of grilled oysters. One word; wonderful.
I had half oyster Po-boy with cup of gumbo and it was to die for.
We wanted to order everything on the menu. Everything looked so good.
Service was very good as well.

We went there because we heard great things about it. The oysters weren’t cooked all the way and they were gritty. I believe they have so many customers, and they cook so many oysters, that they rush through the process.

We actually tried two Acme locations, the one in the French Quarter and the one in the Harrahs Casino. The French Quarter Acme was much better that the Harrahs. The charbroiled oysters were great. Our waiter Edward was an amazing host. He waa funny, friendly, fast and efficient. He really made our dinning experience BETTER. I would definitely recommend the Acme in the French Quarter.
