I had heard that most people argue over which is better, Felix's or Acme...We tried Acme first. It was packed and the food was good. The next day we tried Felix's. We thought it was strange that it had such a reputation and it was empty, but we were eating lunch a bit early that day (we are from Florida so we were adjusting to the time). None the less, it was awful. Yet another meal that was not eaten in New Orleans, they must have changed management.
Across from the Acme Oyster House. Good food, friendly service
Favorite Dish: This may well be the best place to order a full platter of Oysters Bienville. Cooked oysters on the half-shell and with a special creamy cheese sauce. Great with beer. Down-right addicting!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, maybe it was because it was busy, but this place definately left something to be desired. The service was TERRIBLE, we waited for at least 15 minutes until someone even took our drink order, we also saw a few people who left because they were waiting so long. It seemed as though they were understaffed, but in a city like New Orleans were it thrives on tourism, being understaffed really is no excuse. The food was overpriced, and for the poor service, left us wishing we had just stopped by the hot dog vendor.
Its been around forever and serves as chief competitor to Acme Oyster House around the block.
Favorite Dish: Oysters, but their other seafood dishes are alright. A bit of a tourist trap, but what isn't in the French Quarter.
This retraurant offers oysters, cajun food, and po boys. It is famous amoung many tourists.
Favorite Dish: I had shrimp creole with rice. Very tasty!
