Louisiana Fish Camp, serving the freshest Louisiana seafood available along with some southern meat and poultry specialties. Spiced and boiled, fried, sautéed or grilled, the seafood comes from the waters off of Grand Isle Louisiana to your table without touching the freezer. Grand Isle Restaurant will take you back to the days when cold beer, 10 cent oysters and air conditioning were advertised on the windows. Pecky cypress walls will give you that "Fish Camp" feel but Grand Isle has all of the necessities to make your dining experience a Grand one. From a vast selection of great wines to specialty cocktails from the marble bar, Grand Isle Restaurant is a classic New Orleans Restaurant where you will find the locals. Dine in doors or outside on the Fulton St. mall.

We ordered appetizers that never came. When the entrees arrived we canceled the appetizers. We ordered drinks to go, but when the check arrived, the drinks were not on the ticket and we did not receive the drinks. I ordered shrimp and grits and the shrimp was over cooked. People were friendly and atmosphere was great. Others enjoyed their food especially the redfish with crab.

We visited late afternoon on New Years day and the restaurant was very busy. We were seated promptly and the waiter apologized for the delay in getting to us. Despite the restaurant being so busy our drinks did not take too long to come and our meal was fairly quick. The good was excellent and we would recommendvespecially the shrimp and gritsvwhich had a delightful light sauce. Definitely somewhere to visit again.

The barbecued shrimp were wonderful with a delicious sauce. My husband ordered the fried chicken with sweet potatoes and devoured it completely. I had the pork chop and sweet potato with apple chutney and thought I had died and gone to heaven with the first bite down to the last. We finished with the Crème brûlée special and did not leave a speck on the plate. The meal was totally divine!!!

The four of us dined on the evening of Sat, Dec 23, 2017. Our dinning experience wasn't as good as I remember dining at Grand Isle before, but maybe this was a glitch so we'll certainly return because their food is great.

We waited FOREVER for our food. After seeing tables who were seated after us receive their food, the waiter responded to our first inquiry about the delay that our food was being plated. Ten minutes or more later, still no food. Instead of apologetic, the waiter seemed perturbed by our ensuing inquiries, of which there were at least 2 more before our food arrived. The 3 fish dinners were over cooked and the $30 "Special" entrée was NOT worth the money.
The tourist trade from the convention center must keep them in business, because I can guarantee that no local New Orleanian ever eats there more than once.
