Food was too salty, room was insanely loud and did not follow COVID precautions as there was someone performing vocals.

We had an amazing night!! The food was delicious we sat out on the patio the weather was perfect. The views supplied such an authentic New Orleans feel with a touch of class. It was a family members birthday and our waitress took great care of us. The drinks were never empty and she was very attentive. I HIGHLY recommend this Superior Seafood! Their happy hour was a great surprise as well. A MUST VISIT ON SAINT CHARLES.

Happy Hour Oysters and Frozen French 75s always great! Missed our usual (favorite) wait person this time though. Felt like we were being rushed without reason, there were plenty of empty booths and tables.

First let me say, Superior has the most gorgeous (and clean) floors!

So we asked our waiter for suggestions and he practically suggested everything on the menu then zoomed in on the catfish. I hate catfish, but the server convinced me it would be good and, wow! It was DELICIOUS!!!

The entire experience at Superior Seafood was excellent. Food was served timely, waitstaff appearance was nicely spaced and the ambience was perfect.

Adding to my list of faves!

Every time we visit NO we go to this fine restaurant. We really liked the food but the noise was terrible. They should do something about the very loud music as well as the very loud children.
I would recommend anyone to reserve a window table to be as far from the noisy part as possible.
Again we enjoyed our delicious food.

Always enjoy Superior Seafood. The food is excellent for the price and the service is always above average. Would highly recommend the 8oz. Filet with the twice baked potato!

The drinks were wonderful. My order was incorrect, so my sister in law ate her entire meal before I received my Salmon salad. It shouldn't have taken that long to cook the Salmon. The waiter was confused. My sister in law ordered a hot shrimp dish and I ordered a salmon salad. I received a grilled shrimp salad. I brought it to the waiter's attention and he seemed confused. I ordered coffee with cream and sugar, and received coffee with cream already added, which is odd, and no sugar. Overall the food was good, but the service was lacking. The waiter may have been new, but he had someone shadowing him so maybe not.

The smallest oysters I have ever seen! I couldn’t believe I was paying over $2 each for oysters the size of nickel at best! They should have just said they were out! Bisque tasted like flour and water. Gumbo was bitter. Both were served lukewarm. Cocktails were okay but that was it. Such a disappointment.

Service was great. Food great as usual. Drinks great as usual. However, I did not feel safe eating there during the COVID-19 pandemic. Needs more social distancing. Was still uncomfortable, even at 10PM at night.

As well, we were very rushed. Felt like staff was just trying to flip tables. But honestly, with how uncomfortable we were feeling about the safety situation, I for once didn’t mind the rush. Wanted to get out of there as fast as possible. Shame too because I love Superior and have for the past few years. Great food, but I will not be back until the pandemic is over or more safety precautions are out in place.
