Small place but worth finding! Just off the main pedestrian streets, this place had great old New Orleans character. Guys shucking oysters behind the bar, telling a few jokes, lively crowd, prompt service, and the food was great! Gumbo, jambalaya, dessert were all fantastic.

One of my favorite restaurants in N.O. and a "must visit" each time I go. Don't miss the jambalaya or the chargrilled oysters...unreal!

Over the last 4 years Felix's has changed in appearance. Last year it was crazy crowded and packed with customers; breaking our hearts since the line of customers although well deserved was more than what we could handle. Since it's small inside it made for a loud experience. However, the chargrilled oysters are unlike anything I can get outside of... More

This is where the locals eat, not a franchise, just great local food! All of the seafood dishes are wonderful and the hot roast beef poboy is amazing. This a place you want to eat!

Fabulous Oysters, Amazing entertainment. We popped in the Felix's and sat at the oyster bar with the intention of having only a 1/2 dozen… Well 3 dozen later we were thoroughly enjoying our food and conversation with Brandon and Isador. Great shuckers, great service and amazing oysters.. Skip the touristy "acme," and cross the street to Felix's..

This is a fantastic place for lunch. Casual atmosphere, but you don't need fancy when the food, in our case oysters, are this good. My husband and I ordered two half-dozen portions to share along with jambalaya. We were almost through the wood-fired oysters, wishing we had more, when we started on the Oysters Bienville. Both amazing, and delicious with... More

What a cool, old diner that serves up traditional New Orleans food. Our server was polite, friendly and took good care of us. The red beans and rice at Felix's was perhaps the best thing I ate on my whole trip. It was really, really good! My friend loved the Crawfish Etouffee and the Abita Purple Haze beers were cold...

We came here when I was sick of eating fried foods and wanted something more fresh...seafood it is! Unfortunately crawfish is out of season so I couldn't order the boiled crawfish however I did try their fried crawfish tails and oysters and they were delicious! The service was also fast and very friendly. I enjoyed my visit here and would... More
