Acme Oyster House
Due to the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina, the following description may no longer be accurate. Please consider this when making your travel plans. This timeless New Orleans establishment has been popular since the management first opened its doors in 1910. Located just off Boubon Street, the seafood house offers its own twist on New Orleans cuisine in a noisy, casual atmosphere. The food is not to be missed. The popular neon sign beckons locals and tourists to the trademark oysters at an unbeatably low price of USD6.49 dozen. If oysters do not tempt your taste buds, try the restaurant's famous Poopas, a French bread bowl filled with sausage and shrimp gumbo or red beans and rice with sausage on the side. This Monday favorite costs USD7.99.
The oysters are great! However, the po'boys and all the other menu items we ate we excellent! Our waitress was so much fun and we had a great time! Loved the table set up and the ambiance. Great fun! Great Food! If you are going to New Orleans, definitely visit this place!
As a locale for a tourist this isn't a bad place to go...If you are a raw oyster lover it's an excellant place to go. It has local color, serves locale specialities and is located in the quarter within the section of town that most toursit find appealing...Most local neighborhood spots serve larger portions and most locals can whip up a better gumbo or red beans or slap together a better po-boy...but the prices aren't outrageous, the beer is cold and it's a kewl place to go..authentic . The trick with everything these days(after Katrina) is whether any of the serving staff returned..it's tough to work when you have no where to live...doubtful that you'll get any of the locals to be your waiters these days and for many years to come until people can sort out their lives a bit...and maybe be able to return to something remotely similiar to the way things were.
This place is has amazing food. From the outside it didnt look like much and inside not much either but the food and service is excellent. The atmosphere is a typical New Orleans Restaurant with a lot of people and a lot of good smells.
They have the best po-boys i've ever had by far and the oysters were delicious. Granted i thought that all oysters were the same but 2 other restaurants had oysters with dirt in them and were a lot smaller.
The only thing that i didn't care for much was the bread of the po-boys was a little tough. Not a big thing though. We got seated pretty fast even though we had 5 in our party. Everyone was nice and opened doors. Other than the bread the meal and drinks were A+
We loved the food so much we went back 4 consecutive days, either for lunch or dinner! During all 4 times, we did not have to wait more than 5 minutes to be seated (table for 2). I recommend sitting at the oyster bar at least once. The oyster schuckers are very friendly and always have great stories to tell. The raw oysters are awesome, the seafood gumbo out of this world, and the peace-maker po-boy sandwich is a must -- it's a big serving so my husband and I would split one order in addition to the raw oysters, the boiled crawfish and seafood gumbo! All great with a pitcher of local Abita amber beer!
We went to Acme for dinner this week, the Gumbo was absolutely delicious!! I had the medley it was wonderful and my husband had gumbo and fried catfish platter. Very tasting, you don't want to miss this gumbo!!
The food was great. I recommend the fried catfish. We waited in line for almost an hour to get in on a Saturday night, large groups take awhile to get seated. Once seated we had great service. You can watch them split open the oysters.
