We were on our way to Acme Oysters, across the street from Felix's. We saw the long line and since we were on vacation, nobody wanted to wait. So we walked across the street to Felix's. Their Oysters were DELICIOUS!!! We got seated and served away. The butter and bread that comes with your Oysters....OMGOOOODNESS! We also tried the stuffed... More

The ambience was average , but the oysters were excellent. The waiter did a nice job mixing the horseradish cocktail sauce.

The oysters are amazing. Atmosphere is very casual and fun. Can't wait to visit New Orleans just to go back to Felix's

We tried Felix's as it was just a few blocks from our hotel and right on the corner of Bourbon St. Not a fancy place, but it was clean. The Gumbo was very good for an appetizer. Our Felix's Special Po-boys were super. Half shrimp and half oyster, with all of the trimmings. I added a side of cole slaw... More

Visited twice on my visit and would always say if you are looking for raw oysters its a better experience to stand at the bar and talk to the staff over grabbing a table . Definitely the largest oysters I have had ; half a dozen easily compared to a dozen smaller canadian oysters i normally eat . All fresh... More

A little basic, but worth going in for the chargrilled oysters alone. Covered in garlic butter and Parmesan, I think, delicious. Husband had jambalaya for main, I had the sampler of jambalaya, crawfish etoufee and red beans and rice. The red beans were so good I bought a packet to try and recreate the taste at home (will probably fail!).... More

Its been a year since I've eaten here and the quality has gone down. BBQ shrimp too sweet. Char broiled oysters were burnt and shriveled. Will not be going back. Bourbon house across the street tastier.

We were very happy when we walked right in and got the best food we had ordered the entire trip. The service was wonderful and we never had to wait. The gumbo was awesome.

I can't rate their food because once seated the atmosphere was boring unlike Acme. Our hotel bartender said he liked this place better than Acme so in all fairness without eating I can't comment on the food. After waiting in line the hostess was disinterested in us and seemed put out that she had to seat us. We sat down... More

The oysters are amazing ! Honestly I would go back to New Orleans just for some oysters at Felixs. To top it off it was busy every single time we went in there, so I'm assuming others loved it as much as we did !!

Thank Jordan S

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.
