We waited in line for about 10 minutes on a Thursday evening around 8:30pm when the usher asked if we would want to be seated at the bar - glad we agreed!

We were greeted with smiles and were offered complimentary oysters to toast our evening. We got the spicy Bloody Mary and beer. We got the chargrilled dozen oysters - they were done well with the perfect amount of seasoning of Parmesan and butter to dip in with some French bread. We followed that up with the blackened gator. Made for an amazing dinner and left to Frenchmen street for some jazz.

Never again. Service was unfriendly and the salad was not clean.
Definitely to a jazz bar on Frenchmen street.

Place was great! Loved the atmosphere and the food was amazing! Try the crawfish pies as an app and you won’t be disappointed! Tried oysters for the first time here and they are reasonably priced, the oysters were amazing! Come here for a well priced meal!

The oyster's here are huge and possibly very yummy. The part for me that didn't work was the smoked bar-b-que type sauce for the oysters. It just didn't work for me but my daughter just loved them. It was wonderful sitting on the upper porch and watching the view of Burboun street.

Walked in around 4:40pm sat at the bar ( best seats in my opinion) started with one dozen grilled / dozen raw / cold glass of Abitia Amber!! The gentlemen shucking the oysters, are some of the nicest guys in the city , very entertaining and they keep the oysters flowing, sit at the bar for the experience you won’t regret it, don’t forget to tip your oyster guy , they work hard , as well as your waitress , customer service is wonderful , don’t go when it’s so busy , go early and enjoy this great local restaurant! Also ended up splitting Fried seafood platter which was done very well with butterfly shrimp not too greasy , the plate was very good !
