Ate here since we were staying close by. Wife got the boiled shrimp and salad and I got a shrimp po boy. Both were really good but the boiled shrimp still had the heads on them. Why?! We dont eat the heads so why leave them on. Anyhow she said they were really good and nice size. Would eat here... More

Wife and I ate lunch at around 2.30 pm in this clean, sophisticated restaurant. The manager was having lunch at the same time and I ordered what she was having---it looked so good! It was a tomato and onion and garlic base with the mussels from the menu dish substituted by Gulf shrimp. Pair that with a seasonal "white" IPA... More

Really my group had no complaints about the food or the service at Grand Isle. It is a large affair surrounded by several other restaurants near the Convention Center and Harrah's. For what you get the prices are high. A mediocre $15 burger that I could have replaced with similar or better at other local burger places for under $10.... More

The food was average and the atmosphere was really nice. I loved the millwork and they have a nice bar. The best part of our visit was definitely our server James. This young man loves his job and has the absolute best attitude and personality for a food and beverage job.

We went in the middle of the day and sat outside in the very attractive outside area. We alerted the hostess that we were there and she assured us someone would be by but after 30 minutes no one came by despite several servers tending other people so we left

the food tastes good, pretty average. But the hair I found in my salad means I will NEVER eat here again. Overall, average food and atmosphere. Nothing special for a city with such food potential.

We went for the seafood and fell in love with the bread pudding. Can you say awesome. We ate it for breakfast as well. Add some ice cream and it is a guilty satisfying treat.

Just stumbled on Grand Isle, leaving a conference and needing a beer. Great social atmosphere, comfy and warm. Ordered BBQ shrimp, recommended by waiter... Fabulous. Best I've ever had. Also had fried oysters, yum yum too. Was given complimentary desert, bread pudding, and $10 voucher to come back. Our waiter was outstanding, also advising on beer which we enjoyed. Stayed... More

Great wait staff. Lots of seafood in the menu, 2 or 3 non seafood items. With that said service and food was excellent. They staff was very accommodating for the 1 person in the four who had a fish allergy. We went in late and they didn’t rush us out after the restaurant had closed.
