Don't waste your time in line across the street at Acme. Felix's was the best of the week. We had the char gilled oysters and they were awesome. Then we had the shrimp po boy and the red beans and rice. Nothing shabby about our first meal. I grew up in South Louisiana and just love the food, when it... More

The food alone was great. We had the char grilled oysters, fried alligator, and gumbo. The atmosphere was pretty dire but we were used to that in New Orleans by this time in our trip.... When were were leaving my husband saw a RAT run across the floor. I didn't see it but just knowing that makes it difficult for... More

My husband and I chose to eat here (as opposed to Acme) on our first night in NOLA and we we're not disappointed. The wait to get in was only about 10 min at 7:00 on a Sunday night. We ordered the blackened gator, which was so much better than the gator we get down at the Alabama gulf coast... More

We had lunch here with our family and were disappointed after reading the rave reviews. Decor of a diner but prices of a fancy restaurant. Char-broiled oysters were very good. We had red beans and rice and jambalaya- good but ordinary. Broiled shrimp disappointing- no flavor. Don't get this. The bill charged 12% sales tax but New Orleans tax is... More

After waiting in line on the sidewalk outside the restaurant for 20 minutes it took us an hour to get our food because our order was given to people at another table and we had to wait until replacements could be cooked. Since they have someone at the door bringing people from a line into the restaurant perhaps they could... More

Friendly staff, great local foods, and yes Oysters. What a pleasure sitting down and enjoying a delicious New Orleans meal, knowing that over a hundred suckers are waiting in line across the street just to lay claim to having been at that 'other place'. Felix's is one of the best kept secrets of off-bourbon-street eateries!

As a Louisiana native, my mom often took me here. At the age of 52 it did not disappoint. A little pricey because it's downtown, but good food portions in a great traditional Nawlins atmosphere.

What a great place with incredible food! The atmosphere was very casual. Such a neat place with the charm and character of a 50s diner. We couldn't wait to try the char-grilled oysters which were highly recommended by friends. They were fantastic! Our son had the Seafood Gumbo and fried Louisiana Alligator and said they were amazing! We dined there... More
