I have never made it into Acme and have the habit of just crossing the street to Felix's. The oysters can be served many ways and are never disappointing! This is a must if you are in New Orleans!

This is a hole in the wall kinda place. It has tables all pushed together and terrible acoustics. The service can be spotty. The "ersters" were amazing. Fresh as could be and cooked quickly and well. Hard to past the oysters......got to try them while in New Orleans.

If you haven't been to Acme Oyster Bar across the street, go there for the experience and brag rights. However, Felix is a lot quieter and serves GREAT oysters on the half shell. The difference is that the waitress will make the dipping sauce to your preferences which is important to my wife and I since she opts out of... More

Small restaurant with limited seating but with good food & beer selections.

There are several great local beers on tap from which to choose. The place... More

The food was good, but the service was spotty at best. Had to wait in line outside(20 min) before being seated. Maybe after that wait we were expecting to be blown away. We were not! Will probably give it another try, maybe during the day when it's not as crowded and chaotic!

Gumbo, red beans and rice, grilled shrimp with sweet potato fries. The sauteed veg that came with the shrimp were exceptional. Great meal, uneven service. Not much atmosphere.

We sat at the bar and was thoroughly entertained by the staff, plus we scored a couple extra raw oysters as they were being shucked! The chargrilled oysters were the best, followed by the raw ones.

Had oysters Rockefeller to start. Excellent! Prices very reasonable. We sat at the bar. My wife's chicken was also very good. You see a lot of locals here. Great food and reasonable prices.
