A Little History

Red Fish Grill History

Red Fish Grill is an award-winning casual New Orleans seafood restaurant located at the gateway to the French Quarter at 115 Bourbon Street, just one block off of Canal Street.

For decades, the 100 block of Bourbon Street was dominated on the Lake-side by the D.H. Holmes Company's flagship department store, and on the River-side, by a Woolworth's store. Because the retail stores were closed in the evenings, the 100 block of Bourbon Street became a dark and unappealing gateway into the French Quarter.

Ralph Brennan was a pioneer in revitalizing the 1st block of Bourbon Street and the 19th Century building that houses Red Fish Grill has been praised as one of the finest renovations in the French Quarter history!

Located at the gateway to Bourbon Street, Red Fish Grill sets the tone for your entire French Quarter experience.
