Get the red fish

We started with creole shrimp and shrimp jalapeno hush puppies. The creole shrimp was different very light and refreshing with a small salad. The hush puppies were spicy(which I loved) but really filling. I do think they were overcooked. I had the red fish with crabmeat. Nicely prepared wood... read more

Their signs says the best seafood restaurant in America .They aren't the best seafood restaurant in New Orleans . Red Snapper was good but overpriced at 35 dollars Strawberry salad was very bland and small . Gumbo was over spiced for someone who loves good gumbo.Very loud restaurant with active bar scene GW Fins nearby was my first choice but... More

Weekdays from 3 to 5 these folks serve up oysters on the halfshell for $0.50 each. That's an incredible deal, the oysters are good and the atmosphere is upscale Bourbon Street, not the scruffy Bourbon Street. The oysters are Louisiana gulf oysters so not as briny as east coast or west coast oysters but very tasty nonetheless. Others have mentioned... More

The red fish grill is colourful and artfully airy. Good wine , lovely fish dishes and to die for desserts - we sampled the double chocolate bread bread pudding and the pecan pie with jack Daniels ice cream - ambrosia! A wonderful place to relax and refuel before heading to preservation hall.

My husband and I ate here and was able to get a nice seat at the window. The waiter was excellent -- very attentive! We started with the BBQ Oysters -- OMG...freaking fantastic!! These oysters were flash fried and topped with blue cheese. Unforgettable!! Their signature entree is the wood-grilled red fish with crabmeat. We both had that and it... More

Excellent service. Extensive seafood menu selection. High sound level when the restaurant is near capacity, but still a place to enjoy again.

The dessert was to die for. That said, dinner was wonderful as well. Common theme by now of seafood. Blackened red fish for the husband snd salad and grilled shrimp for myself. Andrew was our server and feel fortunate if he is yours when you visit.
