Ate at Drago's for lunch. Started out with a half-dozen of the charbroiled oysters. Heaven on earth! Followed up with the fried shrimp remoulade po-boy. Excellent. Shrimp had a great taste and the remoulade sauce had the appropriate amount of heat. Po-boy came with French fries which were very well done. The other dish we ordered was the shrimp etouffe....

My boyfriend and I were here for date night after he said he had a craving for lobster and I can always go for oysters. They don't take reservations, so we just stopped in a little before 7 on a Saturday night, and hoped for the best. It was pretty packed but, success: we were seated immediately! As I was... More

If you are looking for fine dining, this is the restaurant for you. I have eaten there a number of times and love it! The food is amazing and the wait staff are very helpful and attentive. I personally don't eat oysters but my hubby raves over the grilled oysters. Everything I had gotten there was fantastic!

Always first rate.Plenty of parking. Two minutes off of I-10.The service is great. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. Known for charbroiled oysters, but don't be afraid to ask your server for his or her menu recommendations.

I've reviewed this restaurant several times before. It is consistently excellent. Between my last visit and my most recent visit, the restaurant has significantly expanded its size. It reduces the wait, but cranks up the decibel level. It's loud! The service has been modernized too and the dishes come out pretty quick. Still one of my favorite places to eat... More

The original, and still by far the best chargrilled oysters. The original location in Bucktown is far superior to the one at the Hilton. The rest of the menu, sadly, is mediocre.

Some of the best Char-grilled Oysters you'll find anywhere. We don't eat here enough because they are so busy during peak times.

This original location of Drago's is in Metairie in Fat City. We have been there on and off through the years. It just keeps getting better and better. Best Grilled Oysters, BBQ shrimp and grilled Lobster in New Orleans, period. The gumbo is pretty good too, although I still think Herbsaint has the best gumbo. The BBQ shrimp are absolutely... More

Restaurant lives up to its reputation. Other menu features are just as tasty. We had grilled shrimp pasta and shrimp eggplant stacked. Exceptional! Also excellent service.

The parking is little to none at all. If you like oysters, this is your spot. The portions are large but so is the price. Lobster to small for the price.
