We have eaten at Felix's on several occasions. We have not been disappointed. There is usually a line out front but it moves quickly. Our waitress was very efficient taking care of our table. I had the grilled shrimp po'boy. It was good. My better half had the chargrilled oysters and they were very good.

I really liked the atmosphere here. It felt like one of those old big city restaurants. It had old world charm, the waitress was great even though the place was packed! Food was decent. I would eat here again.

There was nothing that stood out that requires another visit. The food taste was just okay. No great seasoning, flavor, or preparation.

Felix's is an old fashioned seafood restaurant with outstanding food. The atmosphere was fun listening to the oyster shuckers while they worked. It was obvious they were experienced and loved their job! The seafood was delicious...extremely fresh. Will definitely return.

The grilled oysters we had were piping hot. Good turtle soup and catfish sandwich. Great onion rings and friendly service. Easier to walk in by far than Acme and I like Felix better. Always go when I am in NOLA

I've been coming to Felix's for many years for lunch. This time the greeter was surly as though I was bothering him by coming in. The gumbo was weak and yuck. Sorry to see this old place go down hill.

Disappointed with the grilled oysters. They weren't served hot off the grill (and could have been grilled a tad longer). Mr. Ed's and Drago's are much better. The gumbo was OK. Good service.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood 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.
