Great oysters. No frills.

These guys don't mess around. They don't waist their time with a fancy decor or a staff forcing themselves to kill you with kindness - but they're efficient and you'll eat well and drink well. We ate oysters all over NOLA and Felix's, by far had the best.

My friend and I just happened to go in to this oyster bar because the one across the street had a much longer line. Well, that was the best decision ever. We ended up going back 5 more times during our Mardi Gras week. The raw oysters were great, the shrimp and grits were absolutely to die for, and most... More

OK I have lived by the ocean my whole life and have eaten fresh oysters for many decades. I have had them in every way I thought was imaginable that is until I tried Felix's Grilled Oysters. AMAZING. Huge Hot Pillows of deliciousness. This is our 1st stop restaurant as soon as we arrive in NOLA!!!!

Great Oysters every way possible! The service is great and it is a comfortable local place! It is right off Bourbon Street and always a line to get in but it moves. Enjoy!

I first ate oysters at Felix's in 1972 when visiting a friend going to Tulane. It's the real thing, a true old New Orleans eating experience. While waiting for a table we had a couple of dozen at the stand-up oyster bar just inside the door. Now they have stools there for people to get full service at the bar.... More

Just like so many other times, I had to go by for a dozen and a beer. The oysters are opened right at the bar and served on the half shell on ice with all the accompiaments you could want. People watching, amazing oysters or order from a diverse menu as well...ice cold beer and a dozen "big, plump oysters"... More

I really felt like I was eating authentic New Orleans food with authentic New Orleans people. Nothing fancy but good food. I think this is a really good lunch spot. I had the Felix Po Boy which had oysters and shrimp. I could hear the workers telling funny stories to their customers. When I spoke up and asked how long... More

This is a New Orleans tradition and is known for their PoBoys. They are great. There is usually a long line outside to get in, so try to go during off times.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
