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.

    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.

    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

    My husband nailed it when he called it “Bennigan's with oysters”. The food was mediocre at best. I have to give kudos to the staff though. Very attentive and helpful.

    We came for Houston restaurant week and for our anniversary. Such a good deal-$25 For three courses. We also added some oysters to our meal! Good food, good service. They need more parking spaces😎 we were so full we had to bring the bread pudding home.

    We were seated close to the Rice University Broadcast and didn’t expect it. We should have been asked if we wanted to sit in a different section. Couldn’t hardly hear. Oysters were excellent, but would have preferred to make my own sauce. Asked for soft shell crab plate, but got poor boy. Other than Rice crowd , not that many people there. Doesn’t remind me of New Orleans Acme at all.

    You receive a large portion with the fried shrimp and fish platter. My wife, who does not like spicy food, found the fried shrimp to be the best (behind Christie's) fried shrimp in Houston. I would have liked them to have better seasoned. Watch out for the cocktail sauce if you do not like horseradish (I do) as it is quite spicy. The shrimp salad is very large. Our waiter (who had been working 2 weeks), although very helpful in discussing the ingredients, was quite slow in bringing refills, both water and beer.

    My first time Acme Oyster House and I will be repeat customer. Very friendly staff and welcoming environment. Make sure you try the lemon drop with the Rasberry liquor!!! I was very happy that I did along with the oysters on the half shell were amazing. You won't be disappointed!! We did the HRW menu and our food taste good along with quick service. Very easy to make my reservation on OpenTable and I will be recommending to my friends.

    The food and our server were fantastic. I was taken aback that a half dozen of chargrilled oysters were 18 dollars and half a dozen raw where 6? That is gross overcharging for butter and Parmesan. Based off that I have a mistrust of the restaurant and might not come back. That was serious sticker shock! I know it is based on market value but to add that much to grill the same raw oysters that were significantly cheaper is stupid.

    dined at Acme Oyster House in Houston for the first time and I must say it was an underwhelming experience. Fried fish with pontchartrain sauce was over cooked and barely any sauce. Charbroiled oysters were cooked way too long, some were like eating hard rubber bands. Only dish worth mentioning was the crab cake plate, moist and full of crab flavor. we love the acme house down in the French Quarters but this location missed the mark.
