Acme Oyster House

For locals, the name Acme is synonymous with raw oysters. For over 100 years, they've been satisfying the hungriest of people all over the world! Acme Oyster House opened it’s doors in 1910 and has been proudly serving up the best ice, cold oysters in town ever since. 

Born in the French Quarter

Before Satchmo had ever formed his first band, the Acme Café was opened on Royal Street in the French Quarter. Acme has been pleasing the palates of discriminating diners ever since. It's quality you can taste in the fresh, hand-shucked Louisiana oysters. Whether served ice cold on the half shell, chargrilled and sizzling in garlic butter or fried to golden perfection, Acme oysters are some of the best you'll ever have.

And it's not just the oysters, Acme's serving all of the New Orleans classics like red beans and rice, seafood gumbo, jambalaya and more, all seasoned to perfection and served with a smile. So pull up a chair, take in the history and soak up the flavor.
