    One of my favorite hangouts in New Orleans. Great food and great drinks. Get there for their oyster happy hour from 4:00-6:30 on the weekdays. Pictured is the Shrimp and grits with tasso cream sauce

    We pulled up for lunch and noticed they have complementary valet service. All parking is on the street, so we let them take care of the car. I was a little disappointed right off the bat. No sweet tea. In a city that has a huge sugar industry since the late 1700's. A city that host one of the countries largest sporting events every year known as THE SUGAR BOWL, but they dont make sweet tea? Oh well, the water was very good. First i will say our server Devon P was an outstanding professional. I ordered 6 flame grilled oysters. 5 were pretty good, one was very well done. I ordered a half of a shrimp poboy. It was good, shrimp were cooked ( fried) and not over done. Enjoyed the atmoshere. I would probably eat here again.

    Everything perfect. The roasted oyster appetizer was killer. Get the full dozen, you will be disappointed if you don’t. The Louisiana BBQ shrimp were cooked a little different than I expected—sauce more sweet than spicy, but amazing. And don’t even think of ordering anything but Profiteroles for dessert.

    We were riding the St. Charles trolley without a destination and ended up here upon the recommendation of a fellow rider. She told us they had .50 oysters for Happy Hour and great drink prices! We took her advice and got off at Napoleon and crossed the street to Superior Seafood. Our bunch eats a lot of raw oysters....and these were the best that we've ever eaten. I can't wait for another trip to NOLAs just to go back and have some more! Next trip, we will go every day!! You just can't beat a dozen oysters for $6!!

    The first time we had shrimp and grits and BBQ shrimp. The shrimp were whole and messy but worth it. Also had Fried Green Tomatoes with crab meat - excellent! The carrot cake is to die for!

    We did not have reservations so sat at the bar. It was so much fun. Met a nice couple as we had a great meal of fresh oysters and boiled shrimp. Yummy and lots of fun.

    All the great reviews drew us in - the good reviews were all deserved. The service was great. The food was fabulous. The staff was friendly. The prices were moderate. It was one of the best meals we had in New Orleans.

    I took my mother-in-law and sister-in-law here for dinner and a little bit of New Orleans away from downtown. This is the place you see on TV. You walk in and the place is full (a good sign) there is a someone banging away on the piano by the front door, and there is laughter coming from all directions. Plus the smell ... ... ... mmm mmm mmm the smell. We started off with a dozen fresh oysters which came out almost instantly! The horseradish was fresh as were the crackers and so a simple appetizer was presented perfectly! Great start! I had the grilled bbq shrimp skewer which was done to perfection. The vegetables were slightly singed (which I like) and the shrimp was spot on perfect. Tender, flavorful, and cooked with an eye to presentation. Delicious. My sister-in-law had the salmon served on a bed of rice. It wasn't anything spectacular but with so many places ruining this piece of fish saying it wasn't spectacular is a compliment. Flavorful and not over-cooked. Which brings us to my mother-in-laws dish. The blackened catfish. OMG! I do not know what they did to the sauce but I would buy it by the jar full if I could. Creamy, hot, consistent, and flavorful beyond expectations. The fish was an after thought. This sauce was worth the entire cost of the meal. We all laughed because my mother-in-law had asked for a to-go box as the meal was served but finished every bite which left her nothing to take home. The meal with tip was a little over $100. We did not drink any alcohol. The service was professional, well-informed, and absolutely delightful which earned a better than average tip from me. If you want a true New Orleans dining experience with good food, great ambiance, a little music, and waiters that know there stuff - - - - Go Here! Superior Seafood I will be back. I do not normally give a 5 dot rating but this eatery earned it.

    Dined here on our last night in Nola while here for a family wedding. We'd read reviews and planned on arrival in time for happy hour, as we have four young twenty somethings among the six of us. They like their cocktails and oysters! So here goes. Oysters on the Half, five stars-- huge and tasty --and at a great price. Cocktails, super duper. The ladies in the group were allowed to split frozen drinks in small glasses, and the Nayades Mule, perfect for them. We purchased two nice bottles of a house cab to go with dinner at half price during happy hour and saved them for dinner--and it was excellent wine! We also ordered Fried Green tomatoes and crab stuffed mushrooms for appetizers to go with the oysters. Scrumptious. For dinner, two of us got the fresh pompano on special. Two of us ordered the scallops over grits with fresh green beans. The scallops were cooked perfectly, to die for perfect. Two others chose the bacon wrapped andouille stuffed shrimp. We were all in heaven. To finish we ordered one order of flourless chocolate cake and one piece of carrot cake--both were served warm and in generous portions. Our waiter (who reminded me of a much thinner Kenan Thompson) talked us into choosing the Carrot cake over the creme brulee and he was so very right. As to service, we could easily have invited our waiter to join us at our table. He was that much fun and easy to be with, and he did a fabulous job. We would go back in a minute. Thanks for a memorable last evening in Nola.

    Made it to Superior Seafood for Saturday afternoon happy hour. This was the best food I had in New Orleans. While the French Quarter has it top spots, this place was pleasurably quiet at 4pm, the beer was cold and crisp for a local craft, the oysters were fresh and very clean compared to one of the usual NOLA spots most go. Had a shrimp salad with the oysters, but everything was excellent. Top it off the service was great, attentive but not oppressive. Absolutely my first stop next time I am there.

    We were looking for a restaurant on the St. Charles streetcar line and noticed the Superior Seafood restaurant. That was just what we needed. The ambience was good and the waitress we had was outstanding. We only wanted something lite so my husband opted for the shrimp half poorboy with a cup of crawfish bisque and I had a bowl of the same bisque. Before our order arrived we were treated to a loaf of French bread with butter. I could have made a meal with that alone, yum! The serving size of the dishes was generous; I had to take half of my bisque back to the hotel with part of the French bread; that was a snack for my husband later.

    My wife and I recently ate at Superior Seafood while visiting NOLA. We caught it before the lunch rush and almost had the place to ourselves. Food was very good... I would eat there again.

    We came hungry by RTA Streetcar and left full with great tastes still lingering in our mouths. I would recommend making reservations as this is a very popular place. We started with Gumbo. A really great bowl that should not be passed up. Lots of great tasting flavors included in this dish. Try the fried Gator, we did. You get lots of it and great sauces to go with it. Not greasy at all, very crispy and great tasting. We move on the the main course of Salmon Lafitte, a truly well prepared dish. If I could order delivery from Florida, I would. The staff is very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Management comes around to check how things are. The atmosphere is very Old New Orleans, this place has a history. We were under dressed due to us not bringing dress clothes during our evacuation from Florida during Hurricane Irma. Normally I would have put on long pants, shirt, tie and jacket and had my wife wear a dress, but we didn't bring those items along. DO NOT PASS THIS RESTAURANT UP. YOU WON'T BE SORRY FOR EATING HERE.

    If you've only had raw oysters, try the charbroiled Ines here!! They are phenomenal!! I normally would not consider cooked oysters but they are buttery cheesy goodness!! Drinks are awesome too!!

    We stumbled upon this place accidentally while we were visiting Garden District. What a find! It was obvious even upon arrival that we entered an outstanding restaurant: great atmosphere, attentive staff, packed with locals. We had the gumbo cup, the fried gator and the shrimp and grits. All tasted heavenly. Pimms cup and French 75 cocktails were also made perfectly. We were so satisfied that visited the very same day for dinner. Definitely worth the 30 min tram ride from the French Quarter! For dinner we shared: 1/2 dozen raw oysters, bisque cup, fried green tomatoes, blackened catfish napoleon and a bread pudding. Accompanied by a few pimms of course. Our waitress Olivia was super nice and helpful. Thank you!!! Daily happy hours from 4pm-6.30pm offers 50c raw oysters. A real bargain. I can hardly wait to go back this fantastic restaurant when we'll back to NOLA.

    We ended our trip to NOLA with dinner at Superior. From the appetizers to the dessert, everything was wonderful! Splurge and get dessert - the bread pudding was amazing! The filet was wonderful and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp! Lots of groups were dining near us so don't expect a quiet romatic dinner tho.

    If you are planning on going make reservations! My friend and I ordered several items so we can try a little bit of everything. The oysters were delicious. The chargrilled oysters were sad, not good. The tuna tartar was good. The beef carpaccio not worth the $. Crawfish n crab soup was delicious. The cream pudding & bread pudding was not bad. Service was excellent.

    Got caught in a day-long storm while enjoying a long weekend in NOLA. We went ahead and rode the St. Charles Ave. street car for a round trip. On our return trip, we stopped at Superior Seafood for a luncheon respite. Service was great, plenty of warm soup/bisque and the food was great.

    We came here for a late lunch or early dinner, whatever you prefer. We started with an extremely good frozen pomegranate mojito. Then charcoal grilled oysters and pieces of deep fried alligator. All very good. The blackened catfish Cajun style was also good even if we prefer to enjoy fish more clean with only for example horseradish and melted butter. The house sauvignon blanc from California was very good. The bread pudding ok but maybe a bit heavy for our taste. Very very good and just enough friendly service. All at reasonable prices.
