Superior Seafood and Oyster Bar in New Orleans, LA

Superior Seafood and Oyster Bar
4338 Saint Charles Avenue
New Orleans, LA 70115


I’d been dying to check out the new seafood place that opened up on St. Charles Ave. This intersection is super busy and finding parking wasn’t easy. But don’t give up, cuz I promise the food is worth it. When I arrived, the hostess was very gracious and let me hang out in the doorway for the rest of my party to arrive. I saw chargrilled oysters in garlic, herbs, and butter and could not resist. Luckily the rest of my group also love chargrilled oysters and so we ordered a dozen. They’re not huge nor are they tiny, I would say medium size and fresh!

side salad

My dinner entree came with this delightful side salad. The dressing wasn’t overwhelming.

ahi tuna salad

One dining companion had the ahi tuna salad.  The Ahi tuna blackened topped with a Superior ponzu sauce and set on field greens tossed with cilantro ginger vinaigrette dressing, mangos, avocados, tomatoes and crispy julienned wantons. Delicious and refreshing.

shrimp and grits

My other dining companion had the shrimp in tasso cream sauce and grits.  Tasso is a spicy smoked pork, a Cajun delicacy, added a smokey flavor to this dish. The shrimp was cooked to a nice crisp consistency.

Blackened Drum Napoleon

Drum is one of my favorite fishes cuz it doesn’t have a heavy ocean-y seafood-y flavor to it. The drum fish was served with topped with crawfish etoufée, served with whipped potatoes and corn maque choux. I had just had a bad experience with crawfish at another restaurant in New Orleans and so I was super reluctant to order it again (Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder!) but our server was so pleasant and she talked me into it. I’m glad she did, it was delicious.This is a wonderful place for a mid-priced seafood meal!

  1. The salad looks REAL good. I live so close to this place that I keep on wanting to try it…but…there are just so many good places in this city already.

  2. The interior is beautiful and also has a great ambiance. The bathrooms were magnificent and resembled something from France.
    I didn’t enjoy the food though. My salad was terrible and the gumbo was absolutely horrible! I’m not too sure what my entree was but it was definitely not anything to rave about. The only thing that was great was a piece of tuna that my friend was having. I thought it was an inviting atmosphere but the food was not what I expected.
    Maybe they have worked out the problems since they have been open. Hopefully so because it sure is a beautiful building.
