A true NOLA experience... old school bar and great food. The bar area is the most fun but the dining room is also great. Good food, whether its appetizers and drinks, or a full dinner. The atmosphere is truly a New Orleans one of a kind...

This place was so good we ate there twice. The salads were huge. The fried alligator was delicious, jambalaya and fried catfish were great. We had catfish po-boys on our second visit and they were absolutely fantastic! We will definitely hit up Felix's whenever we make our way back to New Orleans.

This is a great place. While most tourist go across the street to a well known competitor, Felix's is just as good with no long lines. Food is great, atmosphere is great and service is fun!

This is your basic, no-frills and honest New Orleans fare. Shrimp, oysters and poor boys. It's a good choice to jump in, get out of the heat and grab something without reservations or an hour wait. Won't be the best you ever had, but definitely not the worst either.

Wow! This is how I see it. Better oysters than ACME and Bourbon House, especially their grilled oysters. Yummy. Attentive service, good menu variety and good value. You have to wait in line, but not for very long. It's a truly basic oyster spot in the FQ. If you wish to dine in a more "spotless" place go across the... More

This place was a very nice last minute decision. We were a little put off by the line but it moved faster than we expected. We sat at the bar and got a first hand glimpse of the oyster shuckers. Played it safe and had the fried fish and shrimp, won't take a chance eatting oysters in August. Slightly pricey... More

The char-grilled oysters were fantastic. A few in our group said they were "life changing". Seriously. No lines, great service. Loved it!

The fried shrimp platter was delicious and the staff was great. Their Air Conditioning works well and coming out of the NOLA heat and into Felix's was perfect.
