I was in New Orleans on business - on assignment we truly go out because we just have too much to do, however some local folks told us that we had to try this Restaurant. The Barb-be-que Osyters were outstanding. Nothing I had ever had before and I loved them. We also ordered the Lobster, which was very inexpensive. Others... More

Shining star is chargrilled oysters. Steak and lobster plate excellent. Gumbo excellent, maybe better than Chef Ron's, so it is great. Drago's is a Must visit. Parking tight, go early.

This was a very nice place to dine. The food was sooo good! (Hello, in and around New Orleans, is there any place that isn't?) The owner was "in" and she was just so sweet. Parking was a little bit crowded but somehow we managed to get up close to the door. However, it would have been worth it if... More

Had dinner at Drago's on a recent business trip. The grilled oysters were large and juicy. The shrimp and grits were awesome, I am used to having frozen shrimp from the market but fresh gulf shrimp, no comparison, that is what shrimp is suppose to taste like. Service was good. I would recommend.

My wife and I and our teenage daughter were in City Park for a track meet and had to go very close to Dragos to get home to Mandeville anyway, and decided we needed fish for Friday. Dragos is only a few blocks west of Causeway Blvd, not far from the Lakeside Mall. They have onsite parking but some of... More

This was our first experience eating charboiled oysters. They were very good and nothing like I expected. They were a little on the salty side though. I had the fried shrimp and fries and hubby had the fried oyster and fries platter. It didn't come with a small salad which I was not happy about. I was going to get... More

We decided to eat at Drago's due to the great reviews. Wife and I pulled in the middle of the afternoon on a Saturday. Good time as we got seated immediately. I had the shrimp corn bisque, wife had a salad,and we both had the crab stuffed lobster. Both were excellent and we were stuffed with no room left for... More

We spent 4 days in Metairie for a workshop. Drago's was convenient to have lunch the first day.....was so good we went back every day. We tried several other places in the evening but Drago's was the best. Even better than the one's that are also in the French Quarter. Service was fantastic, we had a waiter that was so... More

The locals say this is a "tourist trap" but even so, always busy, great location, excellent bar. Chargrilled Oysters were amazing!

This place is a must stop! Charbroiled oysters are the best. Two couples and we all had something different ranging from fried catfish, red beans and rice, lobster, shrimp. Everyone's food was served hot and delicious. Service was friendly and fast. Loved watching them charbroil the oysters. If we are ever back in this area again we will be stopping... More
