Good shrimp and jambalaya.

We went here on the first night of our stay. There was a short line, no more than 5 minute wait. The inside of the restaurant isn't impressive, more like a 60's era diner. I noticed it appeared there were a lot of locals, which is usually a good sign. I ordered the Bayou platter, $14. It was... read more

If you love oysters, then Felix's is place to visit. On a recent visit to New Orleans, we decided to vist Felix's. The best seat in the house is the bar! The shuckers are friendly, courteous and generous with sharing the oysters. Never a lover of raw oysters, I became one after one of the shuckers insisted I try one.... More

I've never understood why people stand in line to get into Acme Oyster House in the French Quarter. I go across the street to Felix. I rarely have to wait for some of the best oysters in the area. This was my fifth visit and my second being served at the counter by Mike. We had one dozen on the... More

Again, Felix's Oyster Bar has been there for about 70 years and the raw & charbroiled oysters are great. Also enjoyed a nice gumbo as well. Blue Moon and your set to go.

Don't waste your time ordering a half order of charbroiled oysters. If you like oysters, just order the full order. It's totally worth it! Felix's is just as good as Acme which is across the street and usually has a long line.

We stopped in here when the Central Market had a line around the block. We were not disappointed. This seemed like the least touristy place of all the restaurants on our list. Most of the patrons were locals, as you could tell from the fact that nearly everyone was on a first name basis with the staff. The oysters were... More

The line goes fast so don't be deterred. These are the best char grilled oysters in the Quarter and the Po' Boys aren't bad either, try the Felix's special. Etouffee is a little spicy for my taste but good. Bloody Mary is delicious!

Felix's is a small restaurant right across the street from the more popular Acme's. Felix's can get quite busy in the evenings too, due to its proximity to Bourbon Street, but the queue and wait is way shorter than Acme's or Deany's (further up Iberville Street). We were so pleased with Felix's char-grilled oysters we went back for more the... More
