We had dinner here. There were 3 in our party. We all loved our meal. Oysters were ok. The crawfish etouffee was really good. Service was quick and efficient.

Sometimes it's a great idea and a secret worth knowing that you can come to Felix's instead of waiting to get into Acme across the street. Sometimes the grilled oysters are better than Acme and the Felix oysters are the up there with the freshest, cleanest in town. Sometimes not. The grilled oysters can feel almost precooked or presmoked, the... More

Got tired of waiting in line at acme for dinner and had noticed a long line at lunch time for felix's. The people at the door were really nice and talkative. Oysters were excellent and came out fast. And our food came out really fast too. It was freaking delicious, best crawfish etouffee I've had. Our server was friendly and... More

My favorite oyster her. Place is simple and friendly but food is simply amazing. Anything you order will be experience in true New Orleans cuisine, but charbroiled oysters are heavenly experience.

We enjoyed Felix's so much we went twice! We sat at the oyster bar both times which was a great experience! The staff members working the bar were hilarious and great to chat with. Our food, fried catfish and oysters, was the best we've had, and got us there twice in 3 days!

Best oysters, always friendly staff, sit at the bar and watch the shuckers do their thing. Both the raw and grilled oysters are excellent here.

Our first stop in New Orleans after arriving for a bachelor party. Ordered a whole tonne oysters, the best was the oyster du jour! Everyone got po boys which were also amazing! Fast service and staff was great

Ok so yesterday we went to Gragos to try what we were told were the best grilled oysters in town. As my review stated yesterday, they were good but had too much bread crumbs for my taste. Today we ate at Felix's and have to state once again that they reign supreme in the grilling department. I understand Gragos created... More

I love oysters and these were fabulous. I had six fresh on the half shell and six grilled. Next time, I would do a dozen fresh. No need to complicate their great flavours. The grilled ones were tasty but very rich, swimming in butter, cheese and breadcrumbs. My husband, not such an oyster fan, had a shrimp po'boy and gumbo... More

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.
