Great, authentic New Orleans cuisine with a great atmosphere and early-mid 20th century diner decor made for a memorable and satisfying dining experience.
I fondly recall Felix,s from my Tulane days. Its as good as ever. Got seated immediately by v pleasant staff. Oyster po boy x o lint. My wifes shrimp "divine" in her words. Oysters Rock were fabulous. Great to be in NOLA agin.
I will never understand why people wait in line for the competing oyster bar across the street when Felix has it all.,Fresh oysters, raw of grilled or cooked, are all amazing! The staff are friendly and entertaining. Cold oysters on the half-shell, ice-cold beers, no wait. Perfection!
Wanted to try Oysters while in NOLA so we headed to Acme Oyster House...line all the way down the block so went to Felix. Simple place, not the tourist draw but the food was good and reasonable. I loved the chargrilled oysters. Also tried the deep fried breaded shrimp, oysters, catfish. Very good as well. Wish we would've tried raw... More
I live on the West Coast and we get fantastic oysters here. The last time I was in New Orleans we had oysters at the "famous" place and I didn't like them.

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.

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.
