Always Great meals and service! Either location has been always great! We went New Years Eve... Even though the website said they were closed! they were open and we walked right in and was seated! Always have to eat once there while in NOLA!

The food was really good. The service was good as well could have been a bit better for what I was expecting. The charbroiled oysters were delicious. The dish pictured was about $30.00 for reference.

We like stopping by Drago’s in Metarie when we’re driving in. With the new room, the place fits a lot more people, which is typically packed with people seeking some of the best chargrilled oysters in New Orleans.
