Long established seafood restaurant in Metairie. No reservations taken. Food was very good and service attentive. We were seated on the third floor and there is zero atmosphere. First floor had more atmosphere but very noisy.

This was an awesome place to eat. The staff was excellent and the food superb. We had the charbroiled oysters and they were phenomenal. The crab dip was very good also. It was better than waiting in line for hours in the French Quarter and...More

Everything on the menu is excellent. The charbroiled oysters is my recommendation and always enjoyed by guests that I take there to eat, Get the sampler plate then pic your favorite and get another dozen of the ones you like best. Can't go wrong!!

We had another great experience at Drago's in Metairie. We had a large group of family and dined on Boiled Lobster, Stuffed Lobster, Raw and grilled oysters and shrimp and grits (highly recommended). Our waiter, Jeremy, was the "bomb" as usual.
