Ralph Brennan's award winning casual New Orleans seafood restaurant and oyster bar on Bourbon Street. (Voted seafood restaurant 4 years, best oyster po-boy 2010 & 2011). Don't miss Red Fish Grill restaurant's heavenly BBQ Oysters, signature Alligator Sausage & Seafood Gumbo, Grilled Redfish and Double Chocolate Bread Pudding. Casual and fun (a sea of metal fish in neon swim overhead bright, hand painted tables). Open for lunch and dinner 7 days with a lively cocktail and oyster bar going from 11 AM - 11 PM, the perfect place to ease into New Orleans' laid back French Quarter lifestyle or tell it goodbye until next time.

Excellent seafood

This is one of the busiest restaurant that I have seen in New Orleans. It is large and noisy, but the food is very good. I had been led to believe that the seafood was outstanding, but it fell short of this in my opinion. I would rate it only average and for that a little on on the pricey... read more

The fried oysters were good, but I would say that is it. I ordered a salad with the dressing on the side. The dressing was on it. They took it to fix it and I didn't get it back until my fiancée was almost done eating. The server was nice and knowledgeable.

We ate here during Mardi Gra 2016. My son ordered the wood grilled red fish and was disappointed. The fish was good, but the presentation and accompanying vegetables were not. He said the peas and carrots appeared to be frozen food, much like a TV dinner. My wood fired grilled steak was great, tender and tasty. Everyone at the table... More

Everything about our dining experience here was fantastic. Our waitress was phenomenal - she was excited about the menu and her excitement was contagious. Her personality put my three colleagues and me in a wonderful mood to enjoy our dinner. We started with the BBQ oysters and the citrus ceviche. Both were great, but the oysters were absolutely AMAZING. Add... More

You have to get the bbq oysters. I don't eat raw oysters. These babies are fried, tossed in wing sauce (crystals, honey and butter) and then topped with some bleu cheese on a ceramic shell. YUM. They were amazing. The crab cakes were good, not as good as the oysters though. Made a reservation through open table and was seated... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
