A friend was looking for the best red beans and rice in town, and this place was on the list. Basically an oyster bar, this place is old style New Orleans as the interior looks like a 50's throwback with a long straight bar and tables on the other side. Plenty of tile on the floors and walls. Plenty of natural light from the front windows. Several oyster shuckers working one side of the bar. This place must also get crowded at times as there is a roped off line barrier next to the front door for queuing of customers.

There were about 10 beers on draft here, with 4 from Abita and 1 from Tin Can. Other macros filled the remainder. Service was typical southern friendly with a touch of an attitude which was fine by me. The food we had was good and plentiful, and defintely more homestyle than high end restaurant plating.

I would go here for some down home southern cooking with an Abita beer, but don't go here as a beer destination.

I've been going to Felix's for years. Its on Iberville across the street from the always crowded and more touristy Acme oyster house. When I visited recently, I tried the char-grilled oysters for the first time as I had always just had them raw in the past. Fantastic is putting it mildly.

The decor is nothing special in here and it actually looks a little outdated. The staff was quite friendly and they were always right there offering me up anything I might want. Had a good conversation about everything under the sun with one of the main shuckers.

Beer selection is really nothing special however. Just a bunch of Abita offerings on tap and then more in the bottle with some NOLA brewing and Covington brewing thrown in for good measure. Prices are pretty reasonable but this is a touristy part of the French quarter so it would be more inexpensive if it were located in a different neighborhood.

Overall, this place is an institution and I would never wait in line for Acme and neither should you. Just come to Felix's instead and you'll be glad you did.
