Acme Oyster House Covington
Location & Contact:
A true New Orleans original. Acme has made a name for itself in a city famous for its incredible culinary traditions. The fact that locals and tourists line up to satisfy their cravings for our New Orleans style seafood says a lot about the quality of food we've been serving since 1910.
Since 1910, Acme Oyster House has been pleasing the palates of discriminating diners. Originally located at 117 Royal Street, The Acme Cafe 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 Cafe 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 Sandestins Baytowne Wharf in Destin, Florida. The newest Acme location will open in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in the fall of 2008.
