This restaurant was amazing! We couldn’t get enough of the chargrilled Oysters! We had several orders, they were so good. The ambience of the restaurant is fantastic and the wait staff friendly and accommodating. We will be back! The Bloody Mary was fantastic also.

The waitress Kris was very friendly and provided excellent service. The charbroiled oysters were delicious and so was the red snapper dish I had. My first time visiting but it won’t be my last.

Mr. Ed's is much smaller than many restaurants/bars so wait lines here were much shorter than more name brand and larger seafood restaurant's in the French Quarter on a Saturday night. Highly recommend this option for cuisine and ambiance.

My wife & I discovered this place while walking through the Quarter. I had charbroiled oysters which were some of the best. Plus I had oyster Rockefeller which also very good. My wife liked their gumbo & their fried shrimp.

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
