Red Fish Grill

So Travel & Leisure named Redfish Grill one of the best seafood joints in the country. Haven't heard much about the place.
Is it deserving?

    No, not deserving in the slightest. Its pretty good food in a great location, but its nothing to make a special trip for etc.

      I would not not eat there, but I don't think it is on anyones top 20 list for this city.

        I didn’t know you could buy a spot on T&Ls Top Restaurant lists.

          T&L's credibility has gone down the drain with that one.

            I believe they also listed Casamento's on their list.

              The BBQ oysters are one of the best tastes in the city no question.

            I did not know that either.

            Had not seen this one, but in general, I agree with about 75% of T+L's recommendations, and especially for resorts and lodging.

            Now, while I have not dined at Red Fish Grill, I do several of the Brennan family's other restaurants, and some great servers DO tout RFG. Not saying that they (and T+L) are wrong, but I just do not know.

            the bbq oysters w/ stilton dressing are one of my top apps in the city.

            the double chocolate (milk & dark) bread pudding is a favorite as well.

            ...two awesome go-to dishes aint bad. the entrees i havent tried since the new menu, but they were "fine" before. good, better than most national slop.
