The Shrimp Creole Pasta was awful. Others at my table said theirs was not good either. On the positive side, the kids menu was ok (fried shrimp was enjoyed by our pre-teen). The service was ok.

Great local place where chargrilled oysters originated!! Their seafood dishes are sourced locally and are just awesome.

Food was absolutely delicious. While talking with another server who waited on us on Bourbon Street he recommended this restaurant. I'm not lying when I say this was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. I see why it was recommended. Charbroiled oysters...More

Food was good but management asked us to leave before we could finish coffee and dessert! They needed to turn the table. After spending $300 or more I would not take out of town guests back here.

Drago's was the orginal restaurant for charbroiled oysters.... Other's have tried to copy them, they can't match the oysters from Drago's! The rest of their entrees are good as well.

Dont even bother to go anywhere else for chargrilled oysters. These are the best. Excellent service. A bit pricey but worth every penny.

Previously one of our favorite places in New Orleans area. Not been there for a while but went for lunch on 5/31. Service was good but my favorite entree had been discontinued. Guess I was part of a small minority that loved the barbecued shrimp....More
