The food is very good and the service is even better. The oysters are consistently salty and plump. I like the red beans and rice, gumbo and poboys. I always recommend this restaurant to tourist. It's a good price point too.

Diner Style restaurant. The food is awesome! Grilled shrimp was fabulous. My party all had fried seafood which they loved...recommended by a local which made it that much better! The best part was that we weren't rushed at any time...excellent experience...we will go back!

We always start our trip at Felix's. We sit at the counter and have oysters, Po-boys and bloody mary's. It helps us get into the New Orleans groove - which on this trip we needed...cancelled flight, lost luggage, a whirlwind 36 hour trip in Nawlins. I love the music at Felix's. Is there anywhere in Nawlins that doesn't have good... More

My Grandfather lived in New Orleans for many years long before I came along. Felix's was his favorite and right near his apartment on Conti. It was my first trip to the Big Easy since his passing and having lunch at Felix's seemed appropriate. The restaurant is quaint and I quickly snagged a seat at the bar. The Chargrilled Oysters...

I was privileged to eat the chargrilled oysters at this restaurant. They were tasty and super large, absolutely the best I have had! I also had a sampler platter of Louisiana staples that I would say were average. The wait staff for some odd reason never noticed me waiting by myself at the designated waiting area so I had to...

The char grilled oysters were delicious. We tried all of the others which were good. None could compare to the char grilled. The blackened alligator was great, a bit salty. We went a few times and the food was consistently good and the service was fast.

We had dinner in the tiny, busy, no frills restaurant. Our server was extremely slow. It took him forever to visit us, get us drinks, check on us, etc... I was especially disappointed with the oysters, the reason I wanted to go. They were pre-shucked as I noticed when we were waiting outside to be seated. They must have had... More

Whenever we are in New Orleans, we make sure we are here a couple of times to get our fill of oysters. At the time we were there, dozen was $15., They have a variety of ways they are prepared- Char-grilled, Buffalo, Rockerfeller, Bienville, and they have an oyster of the day. They also have a variety of soups and... More

I agree good to pop in for a quick bite, seemed to have some local diners. Not dining. More like a seafood diner. Seafood Salad was fine.

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.
