This place was recommended for our family to try and we really wanted to but the line to get in was stretched around the corner! And that was raining! Due to time constraints we had to go elsewhere so I really don't know anything else...More

We love Acme and have eaten here a few times. Be ready for a waiting line because this place is very popular and you are in NOLA. We always get their Chargrilled Oysters and another platter to share. The Chargrilled are THE BEST we've ever...More

This location is hidden in a corner of Harrah's Casino and it does not disappoint. I was searching for a good shrimp and oyster po boy and I found it. The shrimp and oyster were fried perfectly and the Tabasco mayo was the perfect compliment...More

The Acme at 724 Iberville is a full service sit down restaurant; the Acme in the Casino is NOT. The charbroiled oysters are pricier at the Casino (go figure) and not quite as tasty as at 724 Iberville...Go to Iberville for a great Acme experience!...More

We had dinner with a large group and the food was pre-picked and set up for us buffet style. The staff did a good job, but we only sampled a few menu items. We did, however, special order a few dozen of the chargrilled oysters...More

The chargrilled oysters were better than we've ever tasted before. Yes....me and my husband sampled oysters from four different places and Acme was BY FAR the best in the Quarter, you will not be disappointed if you visit this location!

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

I don't think they take reservations. You would have to call and ask. Sorry.

Yes, you can bring children. I honestly didn't see a children's menu. However, the restaurant was clean, the wait staff friendly, and accommodating. When my daughter was small , we often shared a plate when a child's plate... More
