Great do guests in town. Food is great but the noise level in the large dining room is almost unbearable if it’s a full crowd!!! It’s quieter on the front “porch area “ facing St Charles ave.

Our waitress that sat us down was really rude and looked like she just rolled out the bed and came to work (with an attitude) , brought us hot water that sat on another table that a guest had just got up from 😒 we asked if they only had brunch and she said yes and that we would have to wait till 3 to get dinner ( it was 2:15 🤦🏽‍♀️. We were getting ready to leave when another waiter came to our table we explained what happen and i asked him for his assistance . Once he assisted us we were good to go and his service was amazing from the begging to the end .

Excellent Food and great atmosphere. This restaurant is well worth the ride from the French Quarter.
Will patronize again next time I'm in town.

Definitely need a reservation for this place on the weekends which thankfully we did so we got seated right away. Our waiter provided us with great service with being attentive and giving us good food options. You can’t go wrong with getting their crawfish Mac and cheese as a starter. Oh, and the fresh bread and butter that is brought to your table is amazing! As entrees we got the shrimp and grits and pecan crusted drum, both were excellent. The ambience was great and we will definitely be going back.

This is a great choice for an introduction to New Orleans style seafood away from the crush of the French Quarter. Located in the beautiful Uptown District, it is conveniently situated at a stop on the St. Charles Ave Trolly. Try the Char-Grilled Oysters and BBQ Shrimp to start. Add a bottle of wine and continue with Shrimp and Grits, Pan Seared Scallops, or Crusted Drum. Use the freshly made baguette to soak up all of the delicious nectar of the sauces served with each dish. This is heaven on a plate. You will not be disappointed. This can be a lively venue. Make a reservation and request seating away from the bar if you wish to have a quiet chat. Management is open to requests and the staff is very friendly. We received some great recommendations for other places to dine from our server and discovered restaurants that we would have missed without her candor.

We had a great experience at Superior Seafood. It’s a fun atmosphere. It feels like you’re transported to the late 1880’s. The gumbo and crab bisque were both excellent.
The shrimp PO boy was filled with shrimp. The hangover potatoes, with roasted potatoes, brisket and gravy with fried egg on top was hearty. The salads were covered with large blackened shrimp cooked perfectly. I highly recommend going to superior.

Food and drinks were great, service good. I would definitely recommend making reservations. Thank goodness we did. I heard them saying to walk-ins that there was an hour wait, but we made reservations and were seated immediately!

Can’t beat the $.50 oysters at Happy Hour. Even with a reservation we had to wait and remind hostess we were there. Waiter was not great. Inattentive and overcharged for a couple of things, only one of which I caught.
But the oysters were fresh, ice cold and delicious.

Great happy hour with 50 cent oysters, 2 for 1 frozen drinks and 3 dollar beer. Happy is everyday, so I usually go there on Sunday afternoons. You should try this place out at least once

The ambiance was really nice. It was my birthday and I loved the sparkler. The food was okay. I got a salmon salad and it didn't have any dressing on it so that was strange but I asked for some and it ended up really good.

Took my son and 5 of his friends out to celebrate his 21st. Very disappointing birthday celebration for my 21 year old son. The waitress took 10 minutes to even acknowledge us and it was downhill from there. The waitress was also taking care of a table of 17 teenagers (individual checks). I had to flag her or another waiter down anytime we needed anything. Had to wait 30 min for my standard cocktail. Then they brought out the dessert and forgot the sparkler.

I’m not much of a complainer but I was very disappointed after all the great things I heard about this restaurant

Definitely go during happy hour, which is from 4-6:30. $.50 oysters and half price drinks! It is loud and packed, but a very nice restaurant, and I'm not sure you can even find quiet in new Orleans 😉 lol.

We made a special detour to New Orleans just to eat at this restaurant. We have been going there for years and it is always the best seafood in New Orleans and especially for the price. Their happy hour oysters are unbelievable! The service and atmosphere is always friendly and fun. We try a different dish every time and have never been disappointed-everything is always seasoned so well and top-quality.
