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, 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, 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.

    Chargrilled oysters we’re excellent. Also had the crab cake from the appetizers and highly recommended. Service was attentive, prompt, and knowledgeable. We’ve been to Acme New Orleans so we’re pleased quality was consistent.

    The Oysters are very average with no options for other types. The food was so salty on the Po Boy sandwich I got I ask for it to be removed from my bill. The meat was so over cooked it was mush. The crab cake was nothing better than I could get from the frozen section at the store. The Jambalaya was the worst I have ever had. Again sooo salty and no flavor. No green peppers or onions and the meat was so small and over cooked.

    Great food; however they did seem very short-staffed. We sat for a while before someone noticed us. Our server was fantastic, though extremely over stretched. We had to remind them to bring our drinks, and the chairs had a sticky residue on them. As I said, stretched thin and not enough time! However, the gulf raw oysters were delicious, as was the crawfish étouffée.

    Started with the alligator fries and a dozen chargrilled oysters, had to ask for and wait for appetizer plates. The alligator fries were tiny and dry, the dipping sauce was something nondescript. The chargrilled oysters were very salty and of course only came with about 6-8 small slices of French bread--for 12 oysters. I had the boom boom shrimp tacos that would have been ok if they had any flavor besides sickly sweet. No tang, no spice, just sweet, like they tossed the shrimp in a sugary dressing. The coleslaw was mushy and added no flavor. I would like to try something else there because I had a lovely experience at the New Orleans location, but my friend said he'd never go back.

    Heard good things so want to try it out. Oysters were not as ‘meaty’ as I’d like, but it’s what they got. The fried fish was good but the crab meat topping was ‘unnoticeable’. Overall, good but quality can certainly improve.

    Meh. Pleasant environment. Nice enough servers. The highlight was the Caesar Salad with fried oysters. Good portion, good oysters. On the other hand, the chargrilled oysters were small and nothing special and the chicken and andouille gumbo had some issues (gloopy and needed a magnifying glass to find the chicken and andouille). Bayou City is MUCH better for New Orleans style food.

    Our server brought out the appetizer and dinner together. I did not appreciate it. My char grilled oysters which are my favorite were overcooked. The seafood Etouffe had two shrimp in it. The sauce was not very good. It did not taste delicious like the one in New Orleans. We went to this location last fall and it was great. This time they need a new chef and better servers. I still tipped 18 percent over the normal 20 but she really ruined my dinner.

    Food was ok. Baked oysters were not that good, and everything is only fried. Didn’t really have a New Orleans flair just had Louisiana items on the menu that were ok. Weird that it’s a fairly expensive dinner, but they were cheap w fish, not even using catfish, went w some cheap imitation of tilapia and Maui Maui. Not very New Orleans if you don’t have catfish and redfish on a New Orleans seafood menu. Was hoping it was as good as I had in the NOLA location
