Dining Out New Orleans: Felix's Restaurant and Oyster Bar

We got into the French Quarter just in time for a late lunch. We knew we wanted raw oysters, so after parking the truck, we made the .7 mile stroll through the crowds to Felix's Restaurant and Oyster Bar which is conveniently located at the corner of Iberville and Bourbon Streets.

Felix's has been serving the Gulf Coast and its visitors fresh, local seafood for over 70 years. Through its longstanding relationships with local fisheries and distributors Felix's sources the freshest, highest quality shrimp, oysters, and fish.

The atmosphere was lively, loud, and fun. What else could you expect on a Friday afternoon in the French Quarter? Service was attentive and prompt.

Of course, we started with a dozen raw oysters on the half shell.

Aren't those lovely? Even though August has no "R", these oysters were plump and tasty.

Plastic cups were provided to mix up your own special mix of ketchup, lemon juice, hot sauce, and of course, horseradish. Afraid you won't have enough horseradish to get just that amount of kick? No worries here!

Did we enjoy them? What do you think?

We also shared a bowl of gumbo full of shrimp and sausage. A big peeve of mine is being served lukewarm gumbo or soup. Thankfully, this bowl was served steaming hot.

If you find yourself craving oysters on the half shell and/or a tasty bowl of gumbo, check out Felix's in the Quarter!
