Off the beaten tourist path and a fixture in New Orleans for almost 50 years. Best char-broiled oysters anywhere. Our table ordered baked redfish, fried catfish, seafood salad. Everything was superb. Our waiter had lots of New Orleans personality and played no small part in...More

Visiting from California, I came for the grilled oysters! Ordered the dozen of grilled oysters and catfish lunch with sweet potato fries and collard greens. The oysters came to the table still sizzling hot! Word of caution, please let them cool or you will burn...More

We visited on the strength of reviews on TA. But, it missed the spot. Oysters in Louisiana are not the full-flavoured food I have eaten in, for example, France and the sauce completely overpowered the bi-valve. The seafood pasta dish was huge - too much...More

Heard you had to have the chargrilled oysters at Dragos. The place looks like a throwback to the old days décor. We were seated promptly and order taken. The oysters were quite flavorful but the oyster meat was almost nonexistent. They were cremated not chargrilled....More

I love Drago's. I remember when it was on Harrison Ave. Been a fan since then. The best thing are the grilled oysters. These are fantastic. Food of the gods! My next fav thing is the Mediterranean Crab salad. Yummy.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure. I was visiting and we went to dinner. I saw huge lobsters being served, but unsure if they were char-grilled. My apologizes. They looked delicious.
