For an oyster house, man, this place is freakin popular! Acme Oyster House has a line that goes way out the door and we seriously waited an hour or so to be seated (you actually have to wait in line rather than give your name and wait to have your name called). The place is iconic serving up oysters and Southern flare since 1910.
On the interior, the restaurant is pretty casual. There's a large bar where people can sit and be served the full menu that includes yummy fresh oysters or chargrilled oysters. Personally, I love their chargrilled oysters, which happens to be their speciality. For those who don't like the texture of oysters, this is the way to go (even my friend who doesn't like oysters thought this was pretty good after I forced her to eat them).
|The bar and interior|
|SIDE OF JAMBALAYA ($3.99): This was actually pretty good. It was packed with Creole spice with a bit of heat. For rice, this packed tons of flavor. I thought it was worth trying.|
|NEW ORLEANS BREAD PUDDING ($5.99): With Whiskey Sauce. This was really good and probably my second favorite dish of the night. The pudding was warm and gooey and the ice cream that was served with the pudding cooled off the steam. It was a perfect combination once that whiskey sauce was poured all over this deliciousness. Amazing!|
Overall, I understand why this place is famous. Acme Oyster House has one, if not, the best chargrilled oysters. It is succulent, delicious and packs ton of flavor. I thought the other dishes were ok, with the exception of the bread pudding. The stranger next to me allowed me to try their Boom Boom Shrimp, which was actually really good as well. If you just want oysters, this is the place to go...just be prepared to wait in line!
