As always, great. Good food and good price point. Happy Hour cannot be beat by any NOLA OYSTER HOUSE.

Although it was just OK, I would recommend... and here’s why.
The place was understaffed which led to poor service. Our server did not get to our table for approx. 10 minutes. She would also disappear for long periods of time; however, we could see that she was actively TRYING to keep up with her tables.
The entrees took forever to come, due to a large luncheon... and when it was delivered, it was not hot and had to be sent back.
Although this visit was not good at all, the place has potential. The apps were delicious and the flavor of the food (even that which was not hot) was very good.
When back in town, I plan to give it another try to see if this bad experience was an anomaly.

My friends and I held a surprise brunch here for our other friend (she loves the brunch). The waitress was soooo nice and got everything right. I wish I remembered her name. The food was really good and it wasn’t overly expensive. I will be back for sure!

Great place — lots of regulars and plenty of visitors. Sensation salad was a nice surprise — crisp and tasty. Delicious blackened triple tail with accompaniments — corn maque choux (yes!), whipped potatoes. Gumbo was thick, dark and rich. Service was outstanding — our waitress was very attentive and two manager types stopped by to check on us as well. We ended the meal with bread pudding (yes yes!) and coffee. We can’t wait to go back on our next trip to NOLA!

Everything was so good! We went as a group of three and all got different entrees to share- great way to sample several things on the menu! The oysters were so good. Michael, our server was so nice and really good at his job. He also provided great recommendations for bars to avoid the bourbon street crowds.

I am a Tulane student. Every time I have family or friends come visit, Superior Seafood is the first place I bring them. There is something for everyone, the NOLA staples, a vivacious atmosphere, and unparalleled service. Superior Seafood will continue to be my go to restaurant choice, especially during happy hour.

Suberbes huitres, fraichement ouverte devant nous au bar à huitres en attendant notre table.

Les huitres étaient très grosses, impressionnantes! Nous en avons mangé deux douzaines!!!

Le repas fut moins copieux en raison de notre apéritif...

Bisque d’écrevisses et tortues, pinces de crabe frites , délicieux suivi d’un plat de pâtes aux fruits de mer avec bouillon de fruits de mer et tomates, exquis

Great location with good food. Really good for groups and great views of St Charles Ave in the front room. Wish the soups were a little better but other items make up for it.
Servers are always gracious and helpful.

We had an amazing experience at Superior Seafood. It had a lively atmosphere & everything we ate was fantastic. The BBQ shrimp appetizer, fried green tomatoes & star berry salad was all wonderful. The fresh catch had great flavor. One of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans (and I live here!)

We were unfortunately seated beside a table of very loud people. The noise level was so loud we had to shout across the table to hear each other. Food was pretty good. I would go back for happy hour but most likely not for dinner.

Restaurant was very noise. The food was just ok at best! The chargrilled oysters was good but the gumbo was just fair and the pasta Del Mar was not good at all. Some of the mussels weren’t open and the others had a funny taste.

We are locals who enjoy Superior Seafood. The food is excellent and with a unique spin. The valet parking makes it work for us as we do not like searching for parking in town. It is, however, a bit noisy. Overall, excellent ratings for this establishment.
