“Doesn't get any better”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Just returned from New Orleans and let me tell you if your lucky to have found out about this gem you'll make it your first and only stop. The staff was amaze. No matter if its oysters belly up or chargrilled you can't go wrong. Between the laughs you'll have sitting at the oyster bar by the shuckers or the food you will experience my fav by far

“Fun for all”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is the little place across the street from Acme. Whe wait staff are upbeat and the manager is around to see that you are getting everything you could possible want. I love oysters and have a hard time getting something new. Did I mention the oysters? Next time I will try the grilled oysters that come with a wine-lemon- butter topping. Don't forget the gumbo! I always like to sit at the bar to chat with the bartender and the oyster shuckers. Have Fun!!

“Felix's Rocks!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We were there over Super Bowl weekend and ate at Felix's twice in the same day. Given the long line at dinner, we offered to eat standing up at the oyster bar. Felix and Skyaa just kept shucking and feeding us, and gave us a class in oyster opening during our meal. Leonard, the new owner, joined us for a while and gave us the hates the oyster team wears. We have been to Acme, which we like as well, but Felix's really hit home with persoanl service and character. And the oysters were awesome.
