I stumbled on this place by accident, looking for Acme. They will cook me inside and set me at the oyster bar, right in front of the Shuckers. I heard the Shuckers entire life story, which was very entertaining. They have a nice choice of...More

Our group decided to take a quick seating opportunity at FELIX, rather than wait longer else where. When 2 from our party arrived late they were told they couldn’t sit with us. Disappointing! The waiter seemed pressured, and at 19 pm they showed us to...More

This is always our first stop when we are in the quarter! Best oysters and shuckers in the city. I had the raw and my friend had the chargrilled Oysters.

Although Felix's has positive reviews it seemed just average. Red beans and rice was good as was etouffee, but hamburger steak billed under Louisiana favorites should not be. It was very salty and over cooked served with cold, greasy fries. Service was fair. Overall, nothing...More

First experience having char-grilled oysters - yum! Spent the rest of the weekend sampling others but they didn't compare. So glad we made this our first stop in NOLA.

Our waitress was very good and the food was ok...some better than others. The gumbo was good, oyster po'boy was average. Bread was almost stale. Not many customers at noon so I guess that was why most of the many employees were standing around laughing...More

If you like oysters then you must eat at Felix’s! They are fresh, delicious and well priced. You can get them shucked right in front of you and they will keep coming until you yell “stop”. Side dishes are great as are the soups and...More

I am giving this 5 stars for the raw oysters (not necessarily the rest of them menu). Felix's is across the street from Acme, which is known to have extremely long lines. When I arrived, Acme had a line out the door and I was...More

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
