So this is on on BeerAdvocate for some ungodly reason. I was reviewing an entirely unrelated "Acme" bar and restaurant when I realized the New Orleans classic had been added to BA a few years ago. Well I've been here and it's the tourist trap you'd expect it to be. It's wall to wall, elbow to elbow throughout the tiny, two-sided restaurant made to appear larger via mirrors.

Dimly lit by mostly red lights, you'll leave with one of the many forms of vision impairment New Orleans is adept at giving people. The food actually doesn't suck, but with so many excellent options available throughout this great city, I'm not recommending it to those coming here to experience the best of the best. They serve a craft beer option or two, kind of, but that's not why anyone, nor why you, should come here. TBH I wouldn't recommend beer here at all.

Oysters, oyster, oysters. Did i mention oysters? Think I like Drago's a bit more but good food all around. Come for the food, dont expect a crazy beer selection.

The place is AWESOME! The best oysters in NOLA! Anita's Andygator on tap was the best offering, but on tap was fresh and delicious, and the ABV hit the spot!
