Since you probably have to wait in line anyway, wait long enough to get a seat at the oyster bar and try to sit where Mike is shucking. The oysters are superb, and the shucking show doubles the fun.

As soon as we were checked in our hotel, we headed straight to Felix for a late lunch. No oyster fan here, I ordered a bowl of red beans with andouille sausage......perfection! Their red beans are served in more of a paste of mashed red beans rather than broth along with a perfectly grilled sausage. Order an Abita to wash... More

My wife does not eat oysters. She tasted my oysters on the half shell and ate two of my BBQ oysters and wanted me to order more. The fried seafood, is well, fried.

Ate at both ACME and Felix's, both are terrific. Don't waste your time in line. Felix's are just as good (my wife preferred them and she is the expert between us).

This place has awesome oysters, and the guys at the oyster bar serving you are always fun. Fried pickles are excellent too. I have had raw, char-grilled, and baked oysters here and they never disappoint. There are lots of places nearby that do Oysters but I think Felix's is one of the best.

Yes, Acme is right across the street and has a longer line. That's even more reason to come here. You don't even understand: their charbroiled oysters will change your life. They also have oysters du jour (ours were baked with wing sauce and blue cheese crumbles) and the best red beans and rice I found in the city. It's crowded... More

Within 12 hrs of visiting NOLA, we went straight for a low key dinner at ACME due to the hype. I was also told within this short period of time to try Felix across the street by 3 people. And so we went to compare. On a Saturday night, there was a line out the door at 6:30pm. the wait... More

Our group of four stopped in for dinner and we found the food to be amazing. We had oysters Rockefeller as an appetizer, they were great in our opinion. I had the blackened shrimp for dinner, phenomenal. Others had the blackened redfish, and they loved it. Another had the seafood salad, and was really good. I loved the hush puppies,... More

Concierge service at the hotel we stayed at recommended this place and we were told is unpretentious and does seafood best around here even though Acme is directly opposite from it Well the place looks bright and relaxing, got a nice bar and friendly looking tender. Service is quick and the waiter that served us was very nice and full... More
