    We loved the atmosphere and felt like it was a place where locals eat repeatedly. Our food was excellent, but the drinks we were served at our table - not - so - good. We will definitely return but only be requesting beer and or wine.

    My friends’ and my experience at Superior Seafood was outstanding. Our drinks were great, food was amazing, even down to the dessert. Our server was patient with chatty girls catching up & taking a long time to choose from the menu, and the atmosphere was great! It was a bit loud, but not too loud, from people talking nearby. But that won’t stop me from coming back!!

    Came here for raw oysters and was not disappointed. Dedicated oyster bar manned by the runner up champion shucker in all NOLA and he served up freshest quality Gulf bivalves on par with the best oyster houses I’ve sampled. Conveniently located on St Charles street car line so no car needed.

    We always enjoy our meals at this restaurant. The drinks are fabulous. The oysters are the best in New Orleans and there’s always a great variety of entree selections! The location is perfect and you feel like you’re at a local neighborhood restaurant instead of a big city restaurant.

    we were there during shift change, ordered an appetizer, a salad and a poboy. one hour later we had to leave without the salad or poboy. there was no communication and when we decided to leave, the manager and server blamed it on a ‘large party’, when less that 5% of the restaurant was full. weare tired of being treated like garbage in this town and at your overpriced restaurant. the 1/2 poboy was $17 and the salad was over $20. We will never go here again and suggest anyone reading this does the same, we suggest supporting a local restaurant that is not overpriced and does not offer terrible service. We are locals with an unlimited food budget, and we will never spend a penny at this joke of a restaurant again.

    Everything was wonderful. The bisque was ok. Not the best I've had. Oysters were out of this world. Good gumbo. Perfect roux...but how can superior seafood not have a seafood gumbo? I just loved the whole experience.

    Service was off somewhat. Salad was not served before entrees were brought to table. Relfish Magnolia dish had a "fishy" taste. My wife's almondine dish with drum fish was excellent.

    Enjoyed the drinks, food, atmosphere. Value is what you expect. Two entrees, 12 raw oysters, flight of whiskey, three alcoholic beverages, and dessert for 140.00. On the loud side but good vibe for a Friday night. If you have sensory problems, might be too loud at this time of the evening.

Also, the hamburger is delicious, as well as the po boys. The brunch menu is not to be overlooked. Cocktails and wine list won’t disappoint. Thomas and his staff do an excellent job . Great food land superb service. Don’t miss this gem!

    We had a party of 6 for dinner on Saturday night at Superior Seafood. Although the restaurant was crowded, we were seated quickly. Service was friendly and attentive. The menu is extensive from the expected seafood to steaks, pastas, and local New Orleans favorites. We had a wonderful meal, great service, friendly staff. Highly Recommended!
