like a diner for oysters

Yum, charming, simple. We went to Felix's as I was starving for oysters and I could see across the street people were waiting in line to get into another restaurant. When I walked in I saw people digging into their oysters and people at the bar. The place is simple and you can feel the cooking... read more

I did not have a good experience but maybe it was an off night?!?! We were told by our hotel concierge that this restaurant was a popular place with the locals so we decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, this dinner turned into out to be our worst. I had yet to try a NOLA Po’boy so that was... More

My wife and I stopped in on a Friday for lunch. We sat at the bar directly in front of the "entertainment". Wow... Had 6 raw, 6 Rockefeller. Size does matter for some, and these were the best I have had. My wife who is not, I repeat not an oyster fan, actually had 3 and came away with a... More

I had several people tell me prior to our actual visit to NOLA to go to Felix's. It was our first official dinner for our vacation. We were not disappointed at all. We had a slight wait, maybe 15 minutes but the street music down the way kept us entertained. Once in and seated nothing disappointed us. Wait staff was... More

This place had great food and shorter lines than across the street. What I would like to talk about is the amazing staff. It was a very crazy night when we were there and I sat and watched them spend 10 minutes cleaning up the floor, chairs and walls after the most inconsiderate family made a mess. Then watched as...

LOVE this place. Great staff...served the oysters right on the bar. We just thought the raw oysters were the best until we had the Char Broiled and they were to die for! Don't waste your time waiting in line across the street..........these guys are the best and we loved everything about this little dive. We will definitely visit them again!

We love Felix's. Each time we go to New Orleans we stop for charred oysters. Tried red beans and rice on Monday an they are now another must have :)

I drop in here (and have most of my adult life) occasionally on Sunday mornings for what I call, 'Felix Breakfast' (no apostrophe "'s" on "Felix"). It consists of 1&1/2 dozen oysters on the half shell (that's raw for those of you who may not know) and Budweisers (yes, plural) at the bar, standing, talking (we use a different term... More

I hate fish but ended up here anyway. It was a totally fun time and the non-fish po-boys were gigantic and delicious. Unusual Bloody Mary's had a real kick to them. The group raved about the oysters, so Take them at their word.
