The food is incredible (Especially the Char-Grilled Oysters) but the Oyster Bar Staff made the visit! Ask to sit with Isadore “Issy” and Blake “Blizzy”. They are so much fun to talk to! Soooooo Entertaining! These Oysters are the BEST in the WORLD!

When we visit New Orleans, we always go to the oyster restaurant across the street. It usually has a long line so I wanted to try Felix's to see if it was comparable. While the charbroiled oysters and fried softshelled crabs were almost as good...More

Even though it sits on the corner of Boubon street this is not a tourist trap joint. One of my favorite things in New Orleans is to sit at the original bar on the Iberville st side and knock back a few cold Abita ambers...More

Came here for a late night meal and ended up trying a few things I had never had before (namely, oysters)! It's right on Bourbon, so always expect it ti be busy. And when you do visit, you must try the charbroiled oysters - they...More

If you have a chance to sit at the oyster bar, do it! The oyster shuckers are the best I've seen. Super fast, no shell debris in the oysters. If you prefer sit down dining, they have that as well. The full menu has a...More

Lovely place. I sat at the bar where two ancient but dextrous employees shucked oysters and placed them on the counter before me. These were very big, fleshy oysters, not at all like what I'm used to in Europe, and lacking in the flavour that...More

ACME is supposed to be the king of oyster bars in NO, but Felix's was amazing. The char broiled oysters were the best and if the Dixie on tap was any colder it would have been a slushie.Relaxed , informal old Southern ambience. Lovely older...More

Our waitress, Stephanique, was an absolute delight. She recommended exactly what my friend and I wanted at the moment, 1/2 a po boy, some gumbo, and a dozen oysters, freshly shucked, and served with utmost alacrity. While some "landmark" fooderies rest on their laurels, Felix's...More

Yum! Ordered the oysters Rockefeller, char grilled, and half shell. All were great and the meat was a good size per shell. Definitely worth the visit!

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
