When I was a kid there was no comparison between the seafood you could get in south Louisiana (closer to the Gulf of Mexico) and north Louisiana. Seafood was largely an afterthought among restaurants in Shreveport unless you went to a place like Abe's where they made routine runs to the gulf. Elsewhere, the boiled seafood was pretty much non-existent (along with raw oysters) and you had the impression the fried shrimp, for example, might have been the same you might have gotten in Montana or somewhere. I say all this to point to the fact that the Oyster Bar in Shreveport is like stepping into a small bistro in Lafayette, which is to say, the food is really comparable. I really like this little place and plan to go there again next week when I am in the area. The food and service were both very good and the place was crowded. I had the grilled oysters champagnes and they were excellent. The shrimp Po-boy was really good and came with what appeared to be and tasted like in-house cut fries. The restaurant is in a rather cramped and somewhat maze-like shopping center, however, the Oyster Bar has its own entrance off Line Avenue so I recommend entering there rather than off Pierremont.
