The grilled oysters are soooo gooood. I think they created this recipe and now have many followers. Lobster and lobster dishes are excellent. Cozy atmosphere and a very friendly wait staff. Cocktail lounge available if you have to wait for a table. When I thing of Drago's I think of grilled oysters.

The oysters, chargrilled or raw are the best. The wait staff are very pleasant and helpful in explaining menu items. The atmosphere is pleasant. The wait is shorter since Drago's opened a new dining area.

Fantastic food and service. Food menu has a wide variety to please a group. Great appetizers for the table to share and incredibly good gumbos. Seafood was fresh and perfectly prepared. Nice variety of wines by the glass

Charbroiled oyster. Amazing! Something you think of later in life, remember every bit of goodness. Your friends will think you've stroked out because they'll see your mouth watering. I was told to order two dozen for self. We shared a dozen between three of us. My entree was great, but on my next visit Im taking the advise. We were... More

Drago's has always been a Home Town Favorite even before the Introduction of their now Famous Char Grilled Oysters. And if you're in for something a little different than the amazing New Orleans Seafood, try one of Drago's Lobster Dinners, Amazing.

Our very weary crew enjoyed an incredible final meal here after a week filming stories in NOLA. Chargrilled oysters, catfish in some heavenly garlic sauce...the meal was insanely great. But best of all was our waiter Farian. We all agreed, this gentleman was the best waiter we ever had met: personal and engaging but knew when to leave; informative, proactive... More

Had never been here before and heard about it, and was different than I expected inside (very open, open kitchen, etc.). They had a small bar as well. Fairly large menu selection of seafood and maybe just my taste, but nothing really stood out. Service was very friendly and quick, but was expecting something a little better for the price... More

Stopped in here for the charbroiled oysters on the way to Venice to tuna fish. This little stop proved to be some of the best food on the trip.

Thank 2kids2go
