No need to stand outside and wait for the competition across the street, step right in and be seated with no line! Cold drinks, excellent oysters and a great wait staff. Quick service and very nice place!

Creole seafood is a big attraction in NOLA. We ate char-grilled and natural oysters at this bar, along with seafood gumbo (a broth with rice) and turtle soup (very rich). The oysters were huge and the food was all very excellent. This and the Acme Oyster Bar across the road seemed to be the most popular, with queues to enter.... More

Our family visited this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Very short wait time for a table, unlike the oyster house across the street where we waited and hour and a half. Felix Oyster house was as good as if not better and no wait.

This may not be the cleanest of places but the grilled oysters are worth it. Especially when paired with a bloody mary.

Have been coming here whenever I am in the French Quarter for years. Still a genuine south Louisiana eating experience: try the oysters are the best to me, or some of the fried seafood dishes, or some of the gumbo or jambalaya.....it is all quite good. Few frills, but the service is outstanding. Enjoy!!!

Heads up: I am a New Orleanian. I used to die for Felix's and it is still very good for oysters but overall the quality is not what it once was. Go for oysters and sit at the bar area.

We went here on the recommendation of a friend. When we arrived the restaurant was empty but when we left, every seat was full. The food here was very good, I would go here again.

The oysters are delicious. The food is of good quality and very reasonable. The venue is usually packed and the service a bit slow at times. Overall enjoyed the experience.

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.
