Great Happy Hour & Wonderful Dinner

Thank you Nick, our bartender, and Tina, our waitress. We came in an hour before dinner service and sat at the bar. The 2 for 1 local brews were wonderful and the $0.50 oysters were among the best we've had in NOLA. Before moving to the table, Nick excellently prepared a very dry martini, that I... read more

We ate here during Mardi Gras after reading some positive reviews. We ordered a variety of fish but nothing stood out as excellent. For a $70 meal for two, we expected an excellent meal. The service was good, the food not so much...

Food and service was very good, especially considering the area. The best overall restaurant that we have visited in this area in this price range.

I had the best Oysters I've ever had here. They were the BBQ'd ones and they were awesome. Service was good and the other food was pretty good too. We hit this restaurant after one of the parades during Mardi Gras and it was great for a casual dinner with Friends. The atmosphere is nice and the decor is kinda... More

Ate there for both dinner and lunch the following day. Seafood was very good (get the whole gulf fish and share), prime rib sandwich not particularly memorable. Wait time is minimal and staff was very attentive.

Been here several times. It is a casual restaurant with good food, good service and reasonable prices. On my last visit pre-Mardi Gras weekend, I had a Jambalaya risotto and oysters. Yum! I usually get their fresh fish, which is always good and priced in the $20-25 range. Their specialty is seafood, but they a full menu of New Orleans... More

I first went to this place in 2011 not knowing how good it was and got blown away by the whole red fish; deep fried and wonderfully seasoned. I waited nearly 4 years to go back and when I did for a 6pm reservation not only did they not have the whole red fish, they said they didn't have any... More

Great large restaurant. Plenty of seating in family or bar side. Great menu with extensive choices. Hard to beat the oysters. Plan to try your seafood in one of the characteristic New Orleans' styles. We arrived between 6-6:30 PM and got a seat immediately on a Thursday night. An hour later, a line had developed. However, tables turned quickly. Walking... More

We were lucky enough to be in New Orleans this last week for Marti Gras. We happened into the Red Fish Grill for lunch. We had their signature flash fried Oysters. They are lightly breaded and dipped in honey and hot sauce. Yummo! They were the best I have ever eaten. If you go, get a dozen as it is... More
