The charbroiled oysters were the star of the show at Felix's. The raw oysters were good, but couldn't touch the cooked ones. The service was great, the beer was cold and the only thing I wasn't too fond of was the house cocktail sauce. Once we fixed up our own, we were just golden.

We ended up stopping at Felix's because we wanted oysters and Acme was closed for a private party -- we are so glad it ended up that way! Our server was absolutely exceptional -- attentive, helpful, kind. We had the grilled oysters and they were great. We also shared a seafood platter and the breading had the right amount of... More

The last time that we were in New Orleans I had the char-broiled oysters at Acme's and thought that I would not be able to find any better until we went across the street to Félix's. The line was long at both places and gave Félix's a try. We loved it. The oysters were as good if not better then... More

We enjoyed 2 dozens oysters and a delicious shrimp dinner & Gumbo. Our server was Myron and he was very helpful in aiding us to the best meals in the restaurant. Great experience.

My wife and I sat at the bar and at first were very apprehensive. We hadn't had NOLA cuisine and weren't huge into Oysters at all. Michael Jackson, yes that's right, MJ the shucker intro'd us into oysters, both raw and charbroiled. Then we had crawfish étouffée. All was wonderful and service was so kind. Sit at the bar and...

Wonderful, fresh food. Excellent Service. Cock-tail sauce made by the waitstaff at the table side upon demand. Some of the best Gumbo around.

Stopped in last night for some Charbroiled Oysters. Not sure you can find better ones outside of New Orleans. Oysters were good. They were a little on the small side but still delicious. The food portions for the other plates were very generous. My fellow diners were very happy. If the line is too long over at Acme's, give this... More

The place is a bit if a dive but the shrimp were the freshest I have ever had! The wait staff were efficient but not overly friendly which was okay with us... We went early to avoid the evening lines (and craziness!). Well worth it!

We lamented to our server at a gumbo restaurant our inability to find a good PoBoy in Nola and that we were disappointed. He told us to go to Felix's. He mentioned that it was where restaurant workers went to eat and that he personally went there. So with that recommendation we went to Felix's after 9pm one night and... More

We recently had a great visit to NOLA and we happened to have lunch at Felix's. I had the fried oyster and shrimp plate. Man was it GREAT! The wait staff were very friendly. I highly recommend Felix's!!!
