    Such great food and would love to make this a spot for special occasions, but there are just too many TVs!! Ambience turns out to be more like a sports bar. Would be nice just to have the TVs in the bar area and leave the rest of the place for conversation and good food.

    We have tried all their oyster selections both raw and grilled and love them all. In addition the tuna tartare and shrimp in special sauce were fabulous on the last visit. Waitstaff is friendly and helpful. Very casual and fun. We really enjoyed it and plan to return many times more.

    Our second time at Hugo's was even better than the first. Our waiter was great, way more polish than you'd expect in a neighborhood place in Roswell. My friends almost licked the plates from their trout entrees. We loved the jalapeño margarita. The salmon salad is near perfect. Fried okra pods are special---fresh and tender. Don't sit inside--it's a noise riot in a bad way. Outside porch doesn't have much ambience as it's on Highway 9 but noise level doesn't assault like the interior. Valet a nice touch. Go there!!

    My friend and I drove there after work and ordered oysters & shrimp. They were so tasty we ordered another dozen. Our waiter asked if we wanted the shrimp hot or cold and we didn't have a preference so he had the chef cook 1/2 hot 1/2 cold. He scored some big points for that! Thank you for a pleasurable dinning experience.

    Dined on 8/12/2014
    I have dined here several times & always enjoyed it. My most recent visit was not as enjoyable. When one of the people in our group was finishing their meal, they found a hair in their food (unfortunately, they found it when chewing). These things happen; but, the response is what I was upset about. The waitress apologized and said no more. The check was for the full amount; however, the waitress gave us a gift card (no denomination specified) and said we could use it our next visit. I paid the check (leaving a full tip feeling it wasn't the wait staff's fault). Only then did a Manager come over to see if there was anything she could do. It was a bit too late by then.

    Hugos is an OK place. The service we had was wonderful (ask for Crystal!). The food is solid, but really made me miss New Orleans. It just isn't quite there. The po boy was a good sandwich - they said they used Leidenheimer bread (the ONLY bread for a real po boy) but they don't - it's a soft, gummy roll. Not a bad sandwich, but not a real po boy. The gumbo was also OK - not bad - but thin, the roux was not sufficiently prepared. If you are selling New Orleans that hard with the menu, decor, etc., then I'd like to see you deliver on the food, too.

  • Should drop "Oyster Bar" From Name

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    I read a lot of reviews before choosing Hugo's for my wife's birthday, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't a great spot for a nice birthday dinner. For an oyster bar, I was disappointed. Their oyster selection was odd; I've always heard the "months ending in 'r'" is a myth and it's all about where the oysters are from (cold water). Theirs were from the Gulf, Virginia, and PEI...during the summer?! We had some PEI oysters and they were the size of quarters, disappointing. The fish was good, which helped make our night salvageable. The dress code is listed wrong, we were dressy casual and we were WAY overdressed. The servers wear jeans and there was a guy next to us in shorts, a tank top, and a baseball cap. I would say just "casual."

    Great food - loved the grilled oysters and the Rainbow Trout. A little pricier than I was hoping - most appetizers are $12-$14, same for the wine by the glass - but good food and service. It was a more casual ambiance than the price - but good service and great food.

    We loved the food here! Oysters were fresh and fish (we got the trout and grouper) were really good and we loved the drink selections. The only complaint is the location. This place is right on the street, or highway, and I wouldn't be thrilled if I were seated outside on the porch, which is not fancy or shielded from the "highway" . I would def. go back...for an indoor seat!

    My wife and I joined another couple for dinner at Hugo's Saturday night. We made reservations on Friday and were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated immediately upon arrival. The bar was full as we're the other tables, there was a nice vibe to the place, lots of energy. I cannot remember the name of our waiter but he was very tall, friendly and made some good recommendations. When he heard we were interested in the special appetizer of scallops, he said that they were running low and quickly put in our order. Excellent wines, beers and cocktails, the appetizer was very tasty and the entrees were delicious and served quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend Hugo's, a very nice dining experience!

They were pleasantly surprised at the variety of the menu and the fresh and tasty seafood choices that were available. The service was so friendly and they all left making plans to bring their spouses back!!

    Reservation at 7:30 on Saturday. Finally seated around 7:50. Service was good. Extremely crowded and VERY noisy. Had two oyster appetizers, both very small and could not identify oysters in them. Our food came out so quickly that it appeared that it had been prepared before hand. My wife's stuffed shrimp was cold and very small portion. She left hungry! My grouper was good, but also cool, again looked to be prepared ahead of time and sitting out. Definitely felt like restaurant was not capable of handling the crowd. We may try again on a week night, but definitely would not go back on the weekend.

    It's been a long time since we've enjoyed seafood as beautifully prepared as this. We've been wanting to check out Hugo's for some time and we are SO glad we did. We arrived early, meeting our daughter after work. We each ordered a fish....trout, redfish, flounder... Then shared. Each was perfectly cooked and presented. Given the cost of fish these days, we were surprised at the generous portions. The restaurant filled but our service remained as if we were her only table. We highly recommend to all seafood lovers.

    The promise of Hugo's menu seems more than its kitchen can deliver. The seafood gumbo and chicken/andouille soup were bland, meager and overpriced at $8 cup and were made from what appear to be the same base; only difference seemed to be that one had a few shrimp while the other had some chicken and sausage. For entrees, my wife and daughter ordered the lobster night special; one was quite good, the other virtually inedible because one was a female lobster whose tail was filled with a large roe sack. I had the oyster poboy, which I sent back after eating half. The bread was burnt and more importantly the "oysters" were mostly small scraps and overcooked breading. To Hugo's credit, they took the poboy and a lobster off the bill.

    The food was very good overall, but the Oysters Hugo were excellent. We were seated right away and on time with our reservation, even though it was quite busy. Our initial service was also very good, but as the dinner progressed and the restaurant became even more busy our waiter seemed overwhelmed and lost contact with our table. It was not for lack of effort, for everyone was working hard, there just wasn't enough staff to keep up with the crowd.
