This was mine and my family's favorite spot to eat when we were in NOLA. The crab cakes was delicious! We had a little bit of everything and nothing disappointed! I will definitely go here again whenever I'm in town.

Went on a Sunday night for my last dinner in NOLA. Waited about 30 minutes, but Acme is 100% worth an hour wait. The chargrilled oysters are like heaven on a plate. I could have easily eaten my weight in them. The staff is very...More

We loved the raw and chargrilled oysters so much! And the seafood platter was so good! We even went to the one in Baton Rouge, had the loaded potato soup there, so yummy! There may be a line, but it is worth the wait!

Decent place, fun atmosphere, nice staff. The menu was hard for my mom who did not want to try oysters. Those were great though. Good but expensive drinks.

Chargrilled oysters were amazing!!! Good prices, good gumbo, good boo fries. Beers are small and served in small clear solo cup, but the food and service over compensates. The line is worth the wait.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

We went between 5 and 6. The lines were not as long during that time. Hope that helps.
