Superior Seafood & Oyster Bar is located in the heart of Uptown New Orleans on the corner of St. Charles and Napoleon Avenues. The building sits on the famous corner where Mardi Gras parades, beginning their Uptown route, make the turn onto St. Charles Avenue. With both porch and patio seating, the restaurant offers impressive views of the passing streetcars and beautiful scenery that makes New Orleans one of the greatest cities in the world.
Our abundant menus boast our inspired take on Louisiana Classics. The menus consist of staple items mixed with seasonal items as they become available. The result: an interesting and dynamic menu full of the freshest ingredients with something for everyone. In-house printing of the menu on a weekly basis allows us to incorporate the freshest seafood products available.
Our full-service oyster bar is the only oyster bar on St. Charles Avenue. The exquisite marble bar provides a front row view of fresh oysters being shucked and served to your liking. The always fresh oyster selection from various local regions and the full bar, make the oyster bar a highlight of the restaurant. Whether craving oysters, a full meal or just a drink, the oyster bar provides guests with a memorable, entertaining experience.
The 32’ zinc bar, imported from Paris, wouldn’t be complete without outstanding beverage selections. Whether waiting for a table, grabbing a quick drink or enjoying a full meal, the bar is the place to be. Centrally located within the restaurant, it’s a great spot to catch a game or soak up the action firsthand. Our daily Happy Hour showcases our house specials. Enjoy our signature frozen pomegranate mojito, a glass of exclusive house wine or an ice cold draft beer accompanied by complimentary creole chips while taking in all the restaurant has to offer.
Precise attention went into every detail of the restaurant renovation to ensure that the overall feel is that of a true bistro. The restaurant includes vintage elements salvaged from structures in the City. These items include wood flooring from St. Michael’s School on Race Street and bead board ceilings from the former building located on Canal and Tchoupitoulas Streets. The zinc bar from Petoux, France and the antique French dining chairs are unique to the space and play a key role in the authentic aesthetic.
