Felix's never disappoints. Gumbo, catfish,shrimp,mac n cheese, ribs and braised cabbage were all wonderfully seasoned. Really enjoyed the saxophone player!

So refreshing. The best food. The best service. What more could you want? The catfish is amazing. The collard greens, amazing. The cornbread, awesome. And the wait staff the best. Again how could it be better?

We love eating here. Their catfish is amazing. It is prepared with a lite cornbread crust. I've had it for breakfast and dinner. The breakfast is huge (catfish and 3 eggs). Unfortunately there is no wine available or it would be 5 stars.

We've been going to Felix's for years and we love it. The food is always excellent and the service is fine. If you're lucky, you'll see Felix himself there. He's a nice man to talk to.
