Is there always a wait at Acme Oyster Bar

When is the best time to go to Acme. Want to try char broiled oysters and was hoping not to have to wait on a long line to do so. Can this be accomplished or are there always lines ? Is there a bar there to eat at? Thanks all

Always seems to be a line every time I go past the place. Probably showing up a few minutes before opening time is one way to get around it.

Or just walk over to the Riverside Hilton and enjoy your oysters at Drago's.

I went with friends Superbowl week on a Weds about 2:30 PM and there was no line. The char broiled oysters were delicious and as good as Drago's in my opinion!

We are early eaters. We arrived around 5:00 on a Tuesday evening and were immediately seated. By the time we finished our meal, there was a quite a line.

You can eat at the bar or at tables.

I agree with Felix's. We were there last weekend and there was a line at both but Acme's line was longer. Chargrilled oysters at Felix's were wonderful!

We have had luck going early or late for either meal. Last time we got into town we got to Acme about 1 and didn't have a problem. We went back on our last night to try charbroiled oysters. We got there about 5 and didnt have a line.
