Acme Oyster House

216 East 24th Avenue

For over 100 years, Acme has been satisfying the hungriest of people all over the world!

It's quality you can taste in the fresh, hand-shucked Louisiana oysters. Whether served ice cold on the half shell, char-grilled 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, we're 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.
