Royal House Oyster Bar - New Orleans

 Royal House Oyster Bar - 441 Royal Street, New Orleans, LA 70130

 The oyster tacos are fabulous although an appetizer pair it with oysters on the half shell and get your fill you are in New Orleans after all!  The tacos are nontraditional with a fried flour taco shell and topped with fresh slaw.  This establishment tops it off with a spicy sweet bar-b-que sauce. I highly recommend it.

The oysters are in the half shell are shucked to perfection however need a better cleaning.  My napkin looked like I just got done playing in the Mississippi River.  But that cleaning does not stop you from experiencing the fresh sweetness of these oysters. Perhaps on the best oysters I have eaten across the United States.

My companion had the fried alligator.  The batter was lite but needed a little more kick.  The creole was missing part of New Orleans was missing from the taste.  That was a little disappointing since we were in the creole capital.  

The staff has that southern hospitality that we have all been hearing about since the south rose up. If you have a question never be afraid to ask there is no dumb question in New Orleans just a sober question.  Your glass will never be half empty in New Orleans as soon as you drink it down it is filled to the top again. Try the Mint Julep if beer not for you.  However, try at least one hurricane while you are in town its strong and sweet.

Take a seat upstairs overlooking the street the view is amazing.  I could sit and people watch all day from the balcony.  The price is the same as that which you will find in the French Quarter so do not be alarmed.  This place gets 3 Forks Up.  The atmosphere and friendly staff is true to the southern charm.
