I realize that busy seasons such as Christmas can be hectic but terrible waiters which are rude are an absolute disaster for dinner. We settled for this restaurant and paid the price. 3 people- $90.00. Not worth it...pass it up.

This restaurant is in the pedestrian mall adjacent to Harrahs hotel. We stopped in for dinner one evening and had a great meal plus happy hour prices on the beer and wine :) Service was excellent, food was very good. We'd definitely go back!

This place has great atmosphere with a great happy hour also. Try the smoked fried oyster appetizer and the shrimp and grits. On Friday evenings, they have music featuring local musicians and they are usually all very good. Great location near French Quarter and in the middle of the warehouse district...close to the National WWII Museum.

Grand Isle Restaurant was recommended to my group by Bourgeois Fishing Charters as a place we could take our fish that we had caught. We contacted Grand Isles and found out this was a new option they were offering. I am so glad that we found them. After our fishing trip, we called the restaurant (as requested) to tell them...

This was my first meal out in New Orleans and what a great start. Firstly, the staff are very friendly and helpful. They really seemed to enjoy what they were doing instead of just working. I couldn't decide between the shrimp or the oyster po' boy so my waitress said they could do half and half. Perfect! Both were excellent... More

Excellent duck de bris po boy and the swordfish entree was amazing! Located in the Fulton Street area near the casino, this is a great place for quality food that is reasonably priced.

While in New Orleans for a meeting I ended up visiting this restaurant multiple times. Very fast service, not too far from the convention center, will allow you to have a very good lunch during the breaks. The fried seafood is exceptional and not at all greasy, contrary to many restaurants of the area. If you like onion rings get... More
