This was our favorite meal on our recent NOLA trip! I had the raw oysters, 1/2 shrimp po-boy and gumbo & hubby had the catfish platter. All was terrific, catfish was so tender it melted in your mouth and oysters were so plump and tasty. Loved that they gave us fixings to make our own cocktail sauce. Very casual and reasonable prices.

This is the best oyster bar in the French Quarer. Don't waste you time waiting in line across the .street at Acme The oysters at Felix's are fresh, all the food is excellent and the staff is friendly and entertaining. Magic and Keith the oyster shuckers are the best in town. I definetly would recommend Felix;s to anyone loves oysters.

Great food, friendly service and fun atmosphere -- what more could you ask for? The fresh oysters were yummy! Could improve wine offerings but otherwise one of my favourite places for a casual meal with terrific value.

Stunningly fresh oysters, excellent red beans and rice and Po Boys. ACME gets the crowds and is higher priced, which makes Felix's the better choice because it is impossible to get better oysters anywhere else than here.

I have been eating at Felix's for years. If anything, food and service gets better and prices are always very reasonable.

One issue is the quality of oysters. Post BP, there are issues, nothing to blame our hosts at Felix for, however.

The line, on a Friday night, was moderate and the wait reasonable. Drinking in line in New Orleans is accepted and helps.

We had a large party and were seated comfortably. 6 dozen oysters showed up in minutes, drink orders same, very fast. Members who ordered meals got them in a timely way while others did a second shift.

The staff dealt with this brilliantly.

I had a shrimp po-boy with fries. It was quite exceptional. My side was red beans, also exceptional.

Please note, this is an inexpensive restaurant, informal and very busy. Based on the level of service, we may well have been the only ones there. Raise a hand, say "bring more of..." and it showed up almost immediately.

As our mix was a combination of local hosts with both Kosher and Middle Eastern/Islamic contingents, everyone managed to stay within religious/dietary limitations.

Recommendation, worth the wait on weekends, low prices, try as much of the menu as you can.

It is simple food and all good.
