    Do you want to eat awesome NOLA-style seafood (peel-and-eat shrimp, po-boys, and tons and tons of fresh-shucked oysters) while drinking an Abita beer (I prefer Turbodog) and sweating deliciously in the heat? This Quarter institution may well be your place then. It's a place I always visit at least once when I'm in town.

    Don't mind the long tine as it moves quickly and it is well worth the way. Great oysters and quick service make this place a must visit on my list.

    Crazy long ass line just to be seated...we waited a good hour.

    Inside is super crowded and the servers did their best to be attentive with everyone.

    Oysters:
    raw- is great but nothing special about them
    grilled oysters - yummmm eat them

    A New Orleans icon that lives up to it's reputation. Absolutely incredible food. There is usually a line out the door, but it is well worth the wait. I'm generally a fan of raw ones, but the grilled oysters here are not to be missed. Heaven on a plate.

    Pretty much one of the most popular restaurants that you'll find on Bourbon. This could be a tourist trap, but it could also be a food win. My take is that if you are going to travel 2000 miles, might as well not miss the party. A line outside comprised mostly of out-of-state Asians confirms that everyone is in the same mindset.

    -=-Oysters: Raw and Chargrilled-=- My verdict? Get in line and wait. You'll be enjoying that beer while waiting in line anyway. Right across the street was a small bar so it was perfect. One thing is for sure, the oysters are hand picked to be enormous. They will not skimp you here. Raw oysters have no special flair, but it's all the same anyway....raw. Chargrilled was where it was at. If I could do it again, I'd get a double load of chargrilled oysters here. Buttery cheesy goodness in every bite. I don't think I've had a tastier oyster than here.

    Acme has life-changing chargrilled oysters. I took my mother for some on her first-ever visit to New Orleans. She did not stop talking about them for the year between her visits, and when she returned, her greatest delight was introducing them to my father as if she had invented them herself. That's how possessive you get about these oysters. It may be less glamorous, but if you have a car and don't feel like standing in line, there's another location in the suburbs where the food is just as good and the wait comparatively painless.

    An absolute favorite - after all, why come to New Orleans if you can't have fabulous seafood- the oysters are delicious any way you like them - raw, fried, grilled - and it's a festive environment - excellent service - the only problems - long waiting lines. Try to come at an "off peak" time to avoid waiting a long time for a table.

    I really LOVE the food, especially the oysters at Acme. The lines can be long - so try to go at an "off" time, like early or late supper, otherwise you may have to wait a while. It's fresh and delicious seafood - and portions are generous.

    We had chargrilled oysters and the soft-shell crab po boy. The food was outstanding and the server we had was so friendly!! I had never tried a raw oyster before so she brought me one (and didn't charge me for it) and then taught me how to eat it. It was a great experience and we will definitely be returning to Acme on our next visit to NOLA.

    Two words: oysters & beer. You can't go wrong! Head across to Felix's if the line's too long here; it's just as good. http://eatyourworld.com/destinations/united_states/louisiana/new_orleans/what_to_eat/oysters_on_the_half_shell

    A must-go whenever I'm in New Orleans. The atmosphere is casual & fun, the staff friendly. There's sometimes a line outside, but it usually goes quickly. Even if you have to wait a little bit, those grilled oysters (made with a secret special sauce) paired with an Abita Draft Beer-- should not be missed!

    For the money, the best Oyster Bar in New Orleans. Line up on Iberville Street with the rest of the folks to grab a table as soon as you can. Don't miss the Chargrilled Oysters. If you can put away 15 dozen oysters on the half-shell, you can join the ring of honor on the wall.
