First and foremost, OYSTERS, grilled to perfection on open flame. Brushed with butter and garlic then finished with Parmesan. Paired with a nice bright white (we have a wonderful NZ sauvignon blanc). Heaven.

We had the charbroiled oysters, crabmeat appetizer with Zapp's Drago's Charbroiled Oyster Chips to dip, and the stuffed lobster entrée. Everything was great and the atmosphere was laid back even though the restaurant was full. We shared the brownie dessert special which was great. Only problem is the parking which requires patience which they seem to be working on.

I had been to the Drago's in New Orleans...fantastic...but the original out in Metairie is worth the few extra miles and an Uber if you have the time! Amazing! Family-friendly wait staff was all over taking care of the hangry children fresh off the swamp tour and the food was beyond my already high expectations!

Dragos did everything well. The place is clean and bright. Service was friendly and attentive. Prices were reasonable. And the food is awesome! I was raised thinking Oysters are something you enjoy raw. The place is known for their charbroiled Oysters. They were amazing! The largest, moistest Oysters I've ever seen, with an amazing topping. Do not miss! I had... More

A simple place with simply the best grilled oysters period. They have other locations. Avoid those. The original is great simple place hard to park no reservations but once you get passed all that. The grilled oysters will make it worth the pain. Don't miss a real one of a kind.

Fine food, great service, plenty of space to spread out, just very nice. The grilled oysters are very good as one would expect. The rest of the menu has plenty to offer, a full bar, and some very nice desserts. The space is much larger than it looks. I was concerned we would have to wait, however we were seated... More

Drago's seafood restaurant in Metairie Louisiana was a gold star winner. The restaurant is comfortable and family, friends, group friendly. Their charbroiled oysters are amazing. Our table ordered the oysters, shrimp basted in aoili and rolled in chopped nuts, and lobster with oysters and angel hair pasta (the pasta wasn't really necessary ). For dessert, we had the creme brulee... More
