    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.

    We didn’t receive our food for 45 min. And when it came it was all cold. The flavor may have been good .. but again was cold! Management was apologetic and did not charge us for the meal. But very disappointed. It was not what it was expected !

    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.

    The food and service were exceptional. We started with charbroiled and raw oysters that were done up right. The steak Fontainebleau, Brochettes, and Redfish were all served with attention to detail, came out fresh, and were each incredible in their own way. The bread pudding was unique, almost cookie like, yet the perfect dessert to round out the meal. This place provided us with a great dining experience at a very reasonable value. What a great way to cap off a Sunday evening and stay in the big easy.

    Loved dinner. Dessert (carrot cake was iver the top) waitress was sweet but perhaps spread a little thin, but she was amiable and helpful with the menu. Only negative comment is noise level. We had a table fir two and had to yell at each other ti have a conversation. Foid was over the top phenomenal!!

    First time at Superior Seafood & we loved it! We are from Houston, TX so used to great seafood but the flounder & redfish were probably the best we’ve ever had. And the frozen mojito & frozen French 75 were amazing! The stuffed mushrooms & escargot were also delish. Can’t wait to return! Thank you for a fabulous dinner.
