Do not miss MeMe's if in the New Orleans area. The chargrilled oysters are top 5 in the Metro area. Filet was perfectly cooked, Mahi special was wonderful. Food was amazing....but the down home family feeling was something that can't be duplicated. MeMe and Papa made it like we were eating at MeMe's kitchen table.

Meme's is located in the heart of Chalmette, just 20 minutes from downtown New Orleans. The recent addition of the oyster bar has made this a go-to restaurant from anywhere in the Metro area. Try the grilled oyster sampler! The owners are always there to great you warmly, too.

The service was friendly, some food was right on while there could be some improvement. We had a large dinner, starting with appetizers: oysters [raw and grilled], artichoke dip, crab cakes and entrées: surf and turf, & kids macaroni and cheese. The raw oysters were fresh and grilled were diverse with the various toppings [Sriracha (favorite), spinach(kinda bitter), some sort... More

Excellent food in a great atmosphere. With the new addition open it allows for a great experience whether you want to dine at the bar or in the dining area. The food is always excellent and made the way you order. Always willing to accommodate any way they can.

My wife and I were out looking for some food and cocktails last night, and after a completely disappointing experience across the street, we made a u turn and came in MeMes. At first I thought it was a little too fancy for shorts and flip flops but my wife always dresses to kill so they wouldn't throw me out... More

Newly expanded. It was a small cozy spot before, but that meant longer wait times for a table. Now they have doubled the size, but the atmosphere has not changed. Meme's is the best upscale dining in Saint Bernard Parish. Do not let the name fool you, this is far more than a bar & grill. Top notch servers with... More

Food was so good here we went two nights in a row. The lobster was unbelievable with lobster as fresh as I had in Boston. The good thing is their lobster is cooked with a great Cajun taste. I went back with family members on my second night and we had the seafood platter. Just amazing. Fish, shrimp and oysters... More

If you looking for a place to enjoy a couples night with a great atmosphere and great staff, I would suggest you not go here! Manager was rude,disrespectful, and confrontational for no reason at all!

I absolutely love MeMe's. They have the best steak I have ever had. The chef is amazing. I enjoy going there with my wife for some wine and amazing food. She usually gets a pasta and is never disappointed. Go check this place out now.
