    Kudos to the host staff for finding us a great table that was wheelchair friendly. Getting to the bathroom in a wheelchair was difficult but not impossible. Staff helpful. Appetizers of oysters and buratta were great, two of us liked our entrees and one did not (she had the andouille stuffed shrimp and it was overcooked). The side dishes aren't worth the money. the fries were old, broken into bits, and cold. There were 10 green beans on the place and they were undercooked. I ordered a glass of wine that didn't come until the meal was over, yet my husband was served 3 glasses during that time when he only ordered 2. I love the ambiance of the place, and the staff was all very gracious, but the service and food fell short. I'd come here again because the atmosphere is fun, but I'd lower my expectations, which, considering the prices, were not too high.

    The food was over cooked, small portions and dry. For the price I would have preferred to cook myself brunch. That was the last chance I’m giving this place.

    We were put outside of the main building, it is air-conditioned. There was a very large party there already seated and had their drinks when we arrived. I guess they thought they were at home because they yelled and screamed and laughed so loud we could not hear each other at our table. I think they thought they were in their own backyard with total disregard for anyone else in the restaurant. I can’t tell you how many dishes they sent back that they were not to their specifications which held up the wait staff and made our dining experience awful. When you have a group of (it started out with about 20 people but they added another table about 3/4 of the way through our meal and added six more people to it) 26 people they need to be in a private area where they can act out all they want. Or just plain tell them you don’t have room for that many people.The man that was sitting next to us kept opening his bag which reeked of skunk weed marijuana. He would grab his marijuana supplies and go outside and smoke a joint and then come back in reeking of marijuana. We didn’t get all of our food. We ordered a piece of carrot cake that took 25 minutes to come out. We had to beg our waitress for drinks as she was so busy being monopolized by the table next-door. And yes I do blame superior seafood for their behavior as they should have never been put with other customers if you have that many people at a party. I know you can’t control what your guest do but you could make it to where it doesn’t affect the other guest by limiting the amount of people in each group.

    I got the Brouchettes for my meal and was disappointed that the $24 dish only came with 3, so that's $8 a piece. Luckily we got more bread and butter to fill up. I won;t get that dish again here!!!

    Sunday brunch was a pure pleasure, atmosphere was perfect and the menu is really excellent, have yet to find anything that is not delicious, our server was very nice and knowledgeable but as with many restaurants these days he was a bit overworked. I asked two different servers for a little ketchup for my hash browns, never got it. In a perfect world the server usually stops by shortly after your food is served to see if you need anything, did not see him until we managed to get the bill. I plan to return because the food and ambiance are actually 4-5 star, the service is 3 star. This is a very dependable and pleasant place to eat. Make a reservation at peak times so you don't have to sit outside. Bloody Mary was most excellent.

    Didnt't get seated by the windows as requested. Was seated in front of the small band. Was very nice music but since it was a family dinner I would have liked to not been so close as to have more conversation not over music. But service and food were both great.

    Not impressed at all. A rip off for what felt that food made in a factory setting just pumping out as many plates as possible. It took 15 minutes to have any type of staff come to our table, even with a reservation. And we had run to the restaurant to make our reservation on time and were parched. Wish we wouldn’t have wasted the money.

    The food at Superior Seafood was good. However, this was literally the loudest restaurant I have ever been to. It was so loud that we couldn’t hear the waitress at all. This really hindered our experience. It may have been okay if we didn’t have our 11 year old son with us. It wasn’t very family friendly.

    Superior Seafood had been my go-to happy hour for cheap drinks and raw oysters. The oysters have nearly tripled in price, a Covid casualty. That said, three of us went for dinner and were disappointed in the seafood. As locals we made the mistake of ordering charbroiled oysters, as it is well-known they are small in the summer months. Size aside, they weren't that tasty (perhaps a casualty of knowing the real deal, having frequented Drago's. My friend's pecan-crusted redfish was overcooked, and my catfish was too salty. If I go back (not before September for oysters!), I'll stick to happy hour, when the prices are reasonable and the food is good.

    It was a nice evening, though I noted a couple hiccups in the food. Our cups of crab bisque were only warm, but I didn't see the waiting in time to have them fixed. Other issues noted with the photos. I have eaten nearly everything on the menu, and everything is good; much of it is VERY good. Service is usually decent. I also ate there on my birthday a week prior to this visit, and I found myself getting up to get things both times. Since I made the reservation with the note that it was our anniversary, I would have appreciated some acknowledgement of that, especially since someone right across from us had a birthday, and a small celebration was made.

    Our food took over 45 minutes to come out, and when it finally came, it wasn’t even hot. The chargrilled oysters were not that great. The “whipped” potatoes looked like soup and tasted like instant mashed potatoes. The food wasn’t great at all. Then my server charged me extra for something I didn’t buy and refused to take it off of my bill. I refuse to come back to this establishment. For as expensive it is, our experience was horrible.

    Still the best chargrill oysters I had in New Orleans. Great service. Dinner was at 7 pm and we ate inside. The only comment is it was cold in the restaurant. (Crazy , but I wish I had a light sweater.) Ever in New Orleans highly recommend Chargrilled oysters.
