The food was pretty good, but the service, though friendly and helpful, was very slow. We waited nearly forty minutes for our appetizers to arrive. The drinks arrived early on so that was good, but still. We were placed in the bar area and it...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Description
First and foremost – our fish and seafood are always, always fresh out the Gulf. Frozen and fish are two words that should never be joined (like man and purse). Now, some want the traditional boils and such, so we do that, really well. But we also get innovative with the flavors and techniques that are abound in coastal Louisiana, and apply this not just to seafood, but to southern beef and poultry specialties. And for that matter, to our cocktails and wine list too. You will leave Grand Isle having had the best version ever of something you know and love, or the most unique new dish you’ve ever tried.
