Good Oysters, Inattentive Wait Staff

We came for the charbroiled oysters, which were great. However, the service was not impressive. The waitress was nice, but inattentive. The wait staff congregate in the middle of the restaurant and socialize, instead of checking in on their tables.

Not only was it probably the most reasonable restaurant overall that we went to, but one of the best! We first went two nights before we left town and service was good as expected for it being busy. We had oysters Rockefeller which were good. Jambalaya which was very good. Fried catfish which was outstanding. We had the bread pudding... More

We've walked past this restaurant many times, but the line was always quite long. This particular evening, the line was short and thought this was the right time to check it out. The oyster bar was full, but we weren't into oyster this particular day. We were seated in a dining room on the other side of the entrance and... More

Our group stopped into Felix's for an oyster appetizer before dinner. The restaurant was packed, as it should be! We ordered two dozen oysters and a shrimp cocktail. It was as fantastic as our waitress. We loved every moment of our stay, although brief. Check it out!

The Oysters were very good and the crab fingers as well, however it reminded me of an old fashioned place where they put your oyster on the counter and you put them on your plate, you had to make your own sauce and the place just didn't seem clean I guess you would say. We got spoiled across the street... More

There seems to always be a line to this place, now I understand why. Their oysters are outstanding in a city of great fresh oysters. Great price too. I also recommend the bread pudding which was delicious.

I wandered into Felix's during mid day at Mari Gras, 2015. It is not fancy at all but I was seated quickly at the oyster bar and the staff was friendly. I ordered their grilled oysters and they were fantastic! It was fun watching the shuckers work with I waited for my food and ate. The guy sitting next to... More

Fantastic oysters! Great local atmosphere! Don't miss it when in New Orleans! Step right up to the oyster bar when you walk in, mix up your own cocktail sauce the way you like it, have a cold beer, and let them start shuckin. Can't beat it!!!!!!!!!

Can't say enough good things about this place. Red beans and rice were great. Spicy. The raw and chargrilled oysters fantastic. The fried oyster/shrimp platter great as well. Even the bread pudding with whiskey sauce did not disappoint. No reason to wait in line at Acme when this place is across the street.
