Enjoyed casual setting, wonderful seafood

With a 30-person line at an establishment across the street, and the prospect of a $50 meal (also just across the street), we opted to try FELIX's. , and it was very, very good! Short on time, we took a table at the bar and enjoyed watching 3 guys shuck oysters and listen in on some good stories... read more

And watch the guys shuck oysters. This is world class food here. Massive oysters prepared 5 different ways. If you want local authentic fare you will go here. They go out of their way to make you smile. They love to talk so please engage them in conversation. We went 2 seperate occasions and the staff was different, but we... More

When you go to New Orleans you've got to try all the cool restaurants in the French Quarters. I was going to go try Acme Oysters but the line was wrapped around the block. I went across the street instead to Franklin's Oyster bar. There was also a line but not as long. Once I was seated I ordered the... More

I heard of this place by watching an episode of "Chef Jeff", so I was expecting something special. And, for the most part, I got what I was expecting. The food was all the rave that was lavished upon it. The service...needs some polish. If this isn't a concern of yours then you will be more than pleased. The char-grilled... More

You can stand in line across the street for over an hour or go to Felix 's where the wait is short and the food is as good, if not better, than any oyster house in the city. This is an oyster house, though, so if you are not a connoisseur of oysters, than go somewhere else. If you are... More

So I love Acme's and I've been there many times. However, on a recent try to Acme I discovered the line to be almost 2 blocks long and my "hookup" was not working that night. I looked across the street and the line for Felix was maybe 15 people deep. I decided it was better off to stand in that... More

Don't judge this place from the outside - it looks like a neighborhood restaurant - nothing big and flashy about it. The tables are close together and the decor is more shabby than chic, but they serve the most amazing oysters! We were a group of 8 and ordered oysters on the half shell and broiled. There were the biggest... More

Can't add much to the other positive reviews, but the Fried Shrimp and Fish Platter (I'm not an oyster lover) was top notch. So many other places across the world treat fried fish plates as an opportunity to offload off-cuts and then over fry them so that the fish is chewy and has lost all flavour, but Felix's treats it...

Stopped by here since the bigger named places had 2 hour lines for a single seat. Grabbed a stole at the bar, the shuckers were friendly and entertaining, and the food was excellent. Decent beer selection too. I would recommend this place.

We stopped in at about 9 PM after a wine tasting. There were 7 or 8 of us. We had the jambalaya, hot sausage po boy, chargrilled oysters, etc. The oysters were very good. And our friend with the hot sausage po boy said it was the best one he ever had!
