Description: 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.

Amongst the hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street you can sneak away for a great meal at the Red Fish Grill. Serves a lot of typical New Orleans dishes. I had the BBQ Oysters that were amongst the best I have ever tasted - Crystal BBQ Sauce and Blue Cheese Dressing - Amazing. Our waiter was extremely attentive and the... More

This is a more casual high end restaurant in the French Quarter. Decor is nothing to write home about. The food is. We had 7 p.m. Friday reservations, and were seated promptly. Adolph was our waiter, explained everything well, and his service was excellent. Wife and I both ordered the redfish with crab topping, hickory-plank cooked. When it came out,... More

The Jambolia rizotto was excellent. My first experience of creole cooking - delicious! My wife had the wood fired red fish and crab meat lump and claimed it to be of the best fish she has ever had. We started with an appetizer of alligator sausage and gumbo soup that was spicy and exceptionally tasty. This place is really busy... More

A busy, colorful and noisy place intended for tourists, young people in groups and families, beer connoisseurs not wine drinkers. Food is all-American seafood favorites, desserts lavish. .

This restaurant had the typical NO fare. Located in the Jackson Square area, you can listen to the local musicians or watch the football game. The jambalaya was great. Quick service and good food.

I have eaten lunch here on many NOLA visits and it is always great. We were seated at a table that is separated from the kitchen by glass windows - so you get to see your meal being prepared. We all had light lunches and shared red beans, oysters, salads, sandwiches and fish. All were great and the service is... More

I have found that most of the restaurants on Bourbon St aren't very good but this one is an exception. We ordered drinks form the bar, all were good. The waiter was attentive but very busy. Our meals featured very fresh seafood but the grilled redfish plate (restaurant named after it) had a ridiculously small serving of redfish, more like... More

Delicious LOCAL seafood (The chef is part of: http://www.mygulfwild.us/GW/our-story/) at reasonable prices make this worthwhile stop. Pair that with friendly service, phenomenal atmosphere and just plain BEING on Bourbon Street and you've got a restaurant that you simply shouldn't miss. The oysters are fantastic. (Try them with a shot of vodka dribbled on each oyster.) The Cajun Shrimp Jambalaya is... More

If you want a great lunch or dinner in New Orleans be sure to stop at Red Fish Grill. The barbeque oyster po-boy is to die for. AA taste you will not get anywhere else. Combine that with the citys' best Bloody Mary and you have a lunch to remember.
