Seafood with a side of fun!

Our Acme Heritage

Since 1910

Acme Royal Street 1910
1910 - Before Satchmo had ever formed his first band, the Acme Cafe was opened on Royal Street in the French Quarter. Acme has been pleasing the palates of discriminating diners ever since.
1924 outside building
1924 – After a fire destroyed the Acme Cafe, it was re-established as Acme Oyster House at 724 Iberville, where it still operates today.
1940 military eating oysters
1940 – Whether it was the one of the last stops before shipping out or first when they came home, troops would muster at the bar to bolster their spirits for one more "last call." They stayed true to their core values of responsibility – Duty, Honor, Country – and some fun.
1985 military revival
1985 – Acme had seen some unkind years with the flight to the suburbs and the explosion of "fast food" at every corner. Hours were short and the staff was small. New Orleanian Mike Rodrigue was most fortunate to have the opportunity to awaken this sleeping giant! With one waitress in a "self-serve" format, the first directive sign with a sarcastic twist was developed for the wall, Waitress Available "Sometimes". Even if the waitress was there, it depended on Vi's mood for service. That iconic neon sign along with "Poet's Corner" now adorns each of our locations.
2016 present day family
2016 – Over thirty years later, an Acme Oyster House can be found across the Gulf South. Hungry patrons flock to Acme from all corners of the world to eat, laugh and love with us over an authentic New Orleans seafood meal.
