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 indoors or outside on choice of two patios.

Grand Isle used to be one of our favorites so we paid a visit while we were in town. It seemed that the menu had been paired down significantly. We were disappointed by the menu choices. The food was ok but could have been better for the price. We did enjoy the raw oysters. Not sure we’ll be back.

There are so many good restaurants in New Orleans. I would not put this on a must eat. However, it is very nice, casual and fun.

It took a long time to get served initially, so much so that I went up to the bar myself to order drinks. It was quite evident that there were not enough serving staff present as our server was extremely busy. The food, however, was wonderful, and the portions were generous.

We ate here for Valentines Day on a trip to New Orleans for Marci Gras. We arrived at our reservation time and were immediately sat. Appetizers and drinks came quickly. Loved our server. Our entrees took too long to come out; however the server was apologetic and attentive. The food was great. Everyone ate something different and was pleased. We would definitely go back.

We ate with four people. The space was spacious and quiet. The employees seemed cheerful and enjoying their work. All the dishes were not too big and, in general, delicious.

The redfish on the half shell was very good, but a little salty. Loved the pecan rice that came with it! One person ordered the special burger with a fried egg for $18.50 and it came out overcooked. We had asked the waiter to let the kitchen know in advance that we didn't want it charred, but it was anyway. It took 45 minutes to get another burger out, so we didn't get to eat together. It wasn't charred, but very pre-formed and processed. On the menu, it sounds so good with brisket and short rib, but I wouldn't recommend it. Two of us had the fish, so overall we were happy with our meals. Husband wants to mention that the wood tables need something to cover them because they're sticky. That's a bit of a turnoff.

It was the first time they had scallops on the menu. They were very good over pureed parsnips. Others ordered the satsuma salad with chicken...also very good. The chicken strips were especially good with a really grilled taste and flavorful, which is unusual when you get chicken over a salad.

I have no words with how bad the experience has been. We waited for the food for over 2 hours and then proceeded to wait, it smelled horrific, and there was food issues. The waitress was very sweet, but it’s clear things are not organized. The kitchen was way behind. I would not recommend to anyone.

Horrible. We received notice from Open Table, that our dinner for four at Grand Isle was not available for my Open Table points! What good is a Open Table and their relationship with Grand Isle? Never again for this traveler, I will move on.

Made a reservation for 2pm (listing says kitchen is open until 4pm for lunch) and called to say I was running 10 minutes behind, was told no problem. When I showed up, the host expressed surprise that I had made a reservation as he said the kitchen was closing today at 2pm. He checked with someone else and I was told sorry, we’re closed. Had I not called I would be less upset but that is just poor customer service. You should know if your kitchen is open or closed if you are a host answering the phone.

Nice place for lunch, everything was good. I had the shrimp sandwich. The location is close to Harrahs. I think this place could be great. It was pretty empty when we went there , so it was comfortable.
