I visited here with some locals who told my Felix's had the best oysters. They weren't wrong the oysters were amazing and as we were at the bar they were shucked fresh onto the bench in front of us. No plates needed. Unfortunately I have to take a point away for the soft shell crab. It had very little flavor... More

I had never eaten raw oysters. Our waiter, Magic, hooked me up. SOOOOOO GOOOOOD!!!! Then he recommended the Oysters Rockefeller.......again, delicious. My husband can't eat seafood and Magic suggested the roast beef po boy. A home run too! Thanks all. Good bloody Marys too.

Great food and good prices. The alligator was really good and the jambalaya . The place is small and you have to wait in line but it goes by quick

First off, the line to get in was half the length of the other oyster bars, which is why you choose Felix's. We waited for maybe 15 minutes before we were seated, and our waiter was very quick about getting our drink orders. The staff was really good with being quick about everything without making you feel rushed to leave,... More

I really enjoyed my lunch at Felix's. I sat at the bar and ate more oysters (half shelf) than I had eaten in a long time. Had a friendly chat with the head shucker, enjoyed a glass of wine and observed the oyster shucking process. The oysters are superb and the atmosphere of the place is memorable. Highly recommend it.

Super casual and laid back, this place would be great to bring kids. There was no wait, the raw oysters were very tasty (esp. for Gulf oysters), the service was fantastic and friendly, and I dug the old-time-y luncheonette feel of the room (think fluorescent lights and lots of linoleum. Don't get the fried gator though, too tough and chewy.

Even though I've been to NOLA many, many times over the years, for some reason I had never eaten at Felix's. It was a fun time for lunch - don't think I would like to go there for dinner. BUT, our server was excellent (wish I had gotten her name) - the place was packed, as I believe it always... More

Oysters are the best there. Service is not bad and the staff was friendly as well. Food was served quick and the prices were quite reasonable . There was hardly a wait for us and even though it was busy we were not being rushed by are waiter.
