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.

The night started out on a good note with an easy on-line reservation. We were seated quickly and had a good view of the festivities. Not an intimate romantic place, but a good lively vibe from happy diners. We ordered a nice bottle of wine which was reasonably priced. I had their BBQ oysters as an appetizer. Lightly breaded and...

We kept hearing about this place and the location of Bourbon Street made it a must visit before a night of fun. My husband and I eat fish about twice a week and dine out at least once a week. We are not big Cajun and dirty rice fans, so this was perfect for us. We were very satisfied with... More

We went to this place on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel (J.W. Mariott). It was quite busy when we got there and were told it was a half hour wait. We ended up waiting about an hour. We were a table of 5 and each of us had something different. Food was good and nicely prepared. Waitress... More

This place has good food and great service. Lots of things on the menu to chose from. We found this place because it was close to the hotel. We sat in the bar area and had great service and we were able to watch sport on the TV. We had the BBQ oysters which were great size and taste. Alligator... More

Just happened on this place as we strolled around New Orleans. Had to wait 20 minutes for a table but well worth the wait. What impressed us was the hospitality of the staff. Would highly recommend.

Close to Canal St hotels and large enough to get in most times without a reservation. Ample wait staff, which is friendly and helpful. I had the lemonfish, which is cobi, and was a mix between mahi and swordfish -- really tasty. The atmosphere is not very formal, and I suspect it can get pretty loud when busy. Not exactly... More

First off unless you're okay with the volume, don't sit in the main dining room. Ask to be seated in the bar area. The wait staff were very attentive, knowledgable, and friendly. We started out with a dozen oysters and a crisp apple and blue cheese salad. Everything was delicious right down to the refreshing apple slices. We both ordered... More

Menu is fantastic along with the service. Lots of staff on hand including management. Ike was our waiter and he was a very entertaining character who knew the menu 100% and was a joy to have at our table. Would recommend the Famous Dessert.
