What Else to Order at Drago's?

Going for the first time and will order the famous grilled oysters but what else is good? Thanks.

    that's a good question. I've never been impressed with anything besides the oysters at Drago's. The entrees are very heavy on the butter/cream, so if you like that sort of thing you're in luck. The one time I had the lobster it was overcooked and not very tasty.

      In reading some archived posts, you're sure not alone! Leads me to think lunch might be better, sticking with the chargrilled oysters...it's too bad because there are some intriguing menu items (herradura shrimp, baby veal, shrimp and eggplant, etc.) oh well...

        Their corn and crab or shrimp bisque are very good.

          brownie sundae with the ridiculous amount of whipped cream?

            Jumbo lump crab salad. Essentially caesar salad with an enormous amount of jumbo lump on top.
