About Acme Oyster House – Sandestin
For over 100 years, Acme Oyster House has been satisfying the hungriest of people all over the world!
It’s quality you can taste in the fresh, hand-shucked Louisiana oysters. Whether served ice cold on the half shell, chargrilled and sizzling in garlic butter or fried to golden perfection, Acme oysters are some of the best you’ll ever have. And it’s not just the oysters, we’re serving all of the New Orleans classics like red beans and rice, seafood gumbo, jambalaya and more, all seasoned to perfection and served with a smile. So pull up a chair, take in the history and soak up the flavor.
Since 1910, Acme Oyster House® has been pleasing the palates of discriminating diners. Originally located at 117 Royal Street, “The Acme Café” was nestled next to the old Cosmopolitan Hotel which was described by the New Orleans Item as “for 50 years the scene of the making and breaking of Louisiana politicians…”
In 1924, a disastrous fire caused the collapse of the three-story Acme Saloon Building. The Café was re-established as the Acme Oyster House® at its present location in the French Quarter. The original structure dates back to 1814 when the building was constructed as an elegant townhouse. Today Acme Oyster House® continues the proud tradition of New Orleans food and hospitality. In 1997, after eighty-six years of operation, a second Acme was opened in Covington’s Downtown Historic District. It was relocated to Hwy. 190 in December 2005. In 1998, a third Acme was opened at the Lakefront; it was then relocated to the heart of Metairie in 2005. The fourth was opened in 2002 at Sandestin’s Baytowne Wharf in Destin, Florida. The newest Acme location opened in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana in the fall of 2008.
