Felix's has been serving great oysters at it's original location in the Quarter for at least 60 years and a recent visit proved they are still among the best, opening great oysters, providing great service as well as offering many other New Orleans culinary favorites. The Gumbo was right on. The poboys were great You can get a small plate of fried without sides to top off a raw platter. Salads were fresh and well done plus the shrimp and oyster adds were cooked just right.
Their newly renovated and opened space opening directly on Bourbon Street is fabulous.
Felix's is still simply charming.

Once again we had a great experience here. The line is at Acme across the street, but why wait when this place is great? We had both raw and chargrilled oysters as well as a garden salad, remoulade, stuffed catfish, Jambalaya, Gumbo, and a Shrimp Poboy. We also had a dozen Bienville oysters. Everything was great and with no real wait! Brittney provided great service!

We think Felix’s has the best oyster bar in NOLA. Not fancy, but the oysters are shucked right in front of you.

Also, besides raw, oysters are charbroiled, and 4-6 other ways.

Full bar and a full menu if you’re not into oysters

They had great food & drinks at relatively reasonable prices. The staff was friendly and helpful, though service could have been a little quicker (they do serve a lot of people ).

This restaurant is and not just about oysters. I dont care for oysters. They serve excellent red beans and rice, jambalaya, gumbo, poboys, gator, etc.
This is a good place to get a New Orleans style Cajun Sampler plate.

The food is great and Its my first place to eat on bourbon street every time I go there.
