Description: Experience the cuisine that has created raving fans of local diners and national and local food critics alike. Chef Tenney Flynn (two time winner of "Chef of the Year" in New Orleans Magazine) ensures the highest quality seafood by flying in products from around the globe and featuring only the best from local waters - both at their seasonal peak. This commitment to freshness and variety are two of the many reasons GW Fins prints its menu daily and has received numerous glowing reviews in The Times-Picayune (4 beans), Food & Wine, Southern Living and Esquire magazines. We look forward to serving you soon so we may learn what you think.

“Crazy Good”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Always start with the Lobster Dumplings, incredible. I trust the wait staff to order for me now because everything is so good. The fresh seafood is always prepared with a lot of thought and care. The service is excellent, everyone seems to take pride in their work, which can be hard to find at times in NOLA. Let them know ahead of time if it's a special occasion and they will make personalized menus for you.

“Great biscuits”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Loved the biscuits! I had to ask that they stop giving me more. Everything else was good, but not life-changing. The service was very impressive, and the atmosphere was great!

“I'll be back!”

First time at GW Fins tonight. Party of 6 in NOLA for Labor Day. Recommended by hotel concierge and Trip Advisor. Sautéed snapper was the best I've ever had! I'll be back!

Reviewed August 31, 2013

My wife and I dined here on August 30th. It is an excellent restaurant. Try the red snapper, lobster dumplings, seafood gumbo. Terrific ambience and service. We will return.
